We are going to be doing an engine overhaul on a 1988 Ford Mustang 5.0L engine. This is the index page. Check back often for updates. We will be adding pictures, description and information as we remove, inspect, rebuild, assemble, install and run our 5.0L V8.
The first thing to show is the condition it is in while still under the hood.
The car has 160,000 miles on it and we think we are the 3rd owner. The previous owner added some bolt on Ford Racing Parts. The owner before that supposedly did an overhaul of the engine about 7 years ago.
Click the thumbnail pictures below for a larger picture and description of what is being done to our Ford Mustang Project.
We are going to take you though the entire process of removing and rebuilding this 5.0L V8.
Our mechanics are doing this little project for your enjoyment and ours. After working all day at the shop it is nice to do something fun and for ourselves. What better project than the legendary Ford Mustang !
We hope you will come back oftern to check out updates, leave a comment and learn some things along the way.
