Default 96 Mazda B2300 Ford Racing V8 Bad Boy

Hi Guys,

New here, thought I would share some pictures of my Mazda B2300 project finished.

96 Mazda B2300 This is not your average slam bang conversion, no the engine bay is not all hacked up just to fit engine in. The truck has been in our family since day one. I just wanted to fix up the lack of power of the 4 banger. The heaterbox was redone and boy it is a gem of welding, I did not do it, a friend of mine did it.

Brand New 302 Ford Racing Short Block, Edelbrock RPM Aluminum Heads Port and Polished, Aluminum roller rockers, Ford E303 Roller Cam, MSD Ignition, Edelbrock RPM Intake, Speed Demon 650cfm Carburetor, Centerforce Cluch, Tremec TKOII 5 Speed Manual Transmission, Stainless Steel Drive Shaft, 1995 SVT Cobra 8.8" Rear End. Roush rear end cover, panhard bar,

Autometer digital gauges

Traction bars, rear disc brakes, new brake booster and master cylinder.

Flipped rear leaf hangers for a 2-1/2" drop in the rear.

Cut off one (1) coil from front springs and it lowered the front almost two (2) inches.

GT 500 wheel knock offs with 255/50/17 Nittos.

Next step is putting coil over shocks in the rear and perhaps take one leaf out of the rear.

Hope you guys like it. My pride and joy.

Juan
Louisville, KY
