...and just so you know the "usual export brace" as shown is not an export brace. Those are the "usual firewall to shock tower braces". A typical export brace is a once piece, heavy stamped steel unit that replaces the stock shock tower braces to provide more rigidity.

Let's try and keep this going, anything you do to your car, whether it be new brakes, wax or floor mats, share it here! Pictures of the finished product is ok too! Just share away. :)
Installed a MSD 6AL.
I'm creating a new thread in the hopes that more people come forward with information on 2.3L EcoBoost swaps for the 65-73. I see enormous potential for this motor to be used in daily driver cars for something that's fun and has the utility of a modern car. With very simple mods...
