I just got this:

It has a transmission/bellhousing from a 94-95 GT.  Apparently, when they made the bellhousing longer, the also changed the angle of the clutch fork, which makes it poke into the left header. Will SN95 headers fit in a Fox chassis? Would you recommend using a Fox bellhousing and a spacer?

No help, but nice car.  More details to follow in the build thread right?

I still have some Koni DAs if you need them.

I had a post typed up saying yes they should work. But then I re read and saw a reason why they wouldn't that made sense. Also I too am curious to know more about this car.

EDIT: as far as I know the firewall, floor, frame rails, and k member on a 94-95 car are all the same as a later fox. So if you're using SN headers to clear the SN transmission setup then I imagine they would work.

As much as I would like to make a build thread, this is a case of "bought not built". I decided that I was being too careful with the Fairmont, and that I needed something that I didn't have 22 grand and 30 years of my life invested in. A friend needed this out of his garage, so I took unfair advantage of him, and now I have a car that I can use to learn how to brake later, turn in harder, and just all-around "give 'er hell."  It's down a little bit on power compared to what I'm used to, but it was 6 seconds faster on Summit Point Shenandoah than I could run my Fairmont. So far, I've run it one weekend, and I'm at least 2 seconds slower than the 'Mont, but I can see its potential.

Can we talk about that truck in the background? Dent or bump? Looks like a dent.

Man, I need a friend who just needs a care "gone"!

Sorry, I don't know the answer, but nice score.  

I thought I saw a road kill or road kill garage where they hammered the snot out of some headers to make them fit.  There wasn't a power loss after the bash, and they fit.

I saw that. They kept hammering until there was a power loss, but there wasn't one.  I'd just as soon drop in a header that fit, if I'm gonna have to take it out to hammer the E36 M3 out of it anyway.

I decided to increase the "mine" of the new race car.
