Hi, new here and this is my first post. I am interested in a DIY R&P for a 65 coupe with a 5.0 and EFI and after doing a search I found some info on using a taurus set-up which is what I would like to use because I want to keep all Ford parts and I have a complete unit on hand. I am not interested in any of the aftermarket conversions as the whole point is to do it on my own and time/money savings are unimportant to me. The unit I have is from a 93 Taurus but I would buy whatever model year would work best or if the Taurus has too many problems I would go with the GM unit if necessary. What model years would be best with the Taurus? How about the "J" car rack? I found the thread on using a later model "J" car rack (end tie rods instead of the center take off) very interesting. I am using Hi-Po exhaust manifolds so header clearance is not an issue nor is clutch linkage with the Hydraulic set-up I have. I am a retired heavy equipment rebuilder and I have a lathe, mill, etc on hand so I am no stranger to fabrication and infact I did one of the first EFI/T5 conversions done on an early Mustang since I have been driving mine since 1998. I think this would be an interesting project and seems to be a popular conversion and I would really like to keep an ongoing discussion on progress and problems since input from many would be very helpful to all who might be interested in doing this.
