Ok I have been doing a lot of thinking about this project over the weekend and have two questions for you guys. The first being is there an year of the cobalt that would be easier to get the motor to work in a different car like I plan to? The second can the emissions codes be disabled so the check engine light isn't on all the time?

IS the check engine light really your concern? Pull the bulb.
Your going to have more lights on than just the check engine.


Coby7, what is an ABCM? anti-lock brake control module??
Always called it an ebcm

Got a chance to work on the project this weekend doesn't look like much got done but it is almost ready to be sand blasted. The next big project is welding in the new floor pans that I ordered today.


The engine bay is striped other than the brake booster and the a/c lines.




Fenders and gas tank are off




The floors are in bad shape

You might need a new floor. Could be a Barny and Fred car.

I think this is an outstanding project! People are always so concerned with speed and horsepower. Style is a proper use for an automobile too, and the Mustang II had some nice styling! Looking forward to seeing this completed!

Sweet! This will be a fun project. The Mustang II needs all the help it can get, and more power to you for using a Balt motor. Not what I'd do (and no, I wouldn't choose a huge motor... just something a little bigger, and probably a ford for a ford), but I like the ingenuity. Can't wait to see it done!!

I think this is pretty cool. You might wanna try to find a 2.4l motor so that it will be at least a little bigger. I'm sure that car is fairly heavy.

Surprisingly it should be lighter than a cobalt when we are done with it a 2.4 has come up so you never know.
