I really like your Balls Out approach. My own goals for my 64 Dart are turbocharged T5 Street machine. I certainly can take some of your innovation and apply it to mine.

My 64 Dart vert is currently completely disassembled, its the way I found/bought it. I couldn't resist that it is a factory 4 speed Slant 6 car.
But with that thought, I feel like I am starting at "ground zero" and have a lot to do to get this rust free California car back on the road.
To get my priorities right I am going to assemble (or have assembled) a freshened up running Slant motor. Then start collecting all the pieces to make a T5 transmission our only path back to driving this car again. I feel that a T5 and the aluminum OD bellhousing are far superior and an incredible weight savings over the standard A833 and Cast Iron factory Bell.

I hope that with your careful guide to conversion that this doesn't take me down a rabbit hole of problems. I am fairly mechanical and have a few friends to help now and then too.

Ultimately I want it all, a 64 Dart Convertible with Turbo Slant and a 5 Speed.

Sounds good, Fred. You might want to read through the links that Greg posted in the first post of this thread, which talk through issues that some people have had with their swaps. Hope you got my PM too...

My 5spd car has not seen boost yet, but has gone in the 13s in the 1/4 mile and is EFI'ed. Are you going to reinforce the frame and/or put in a rollbar to stiffen your 'vert?

Best wishes for your build!

Lou

Yes, I have plans to put in frame connecters and tie that into a stylish rollbar. Its a convertible and it needs all the support it can get. Specifically if I add some torque and boost.

I am dissecting this posting, piece by piece.
I would love for Greg to post a parts list...hint...hint.

James, I probably will not get to putting thatvtogther soon. The part#'s (except probably clutch / trans mount ) are in page 1 of this post.

I do need to put that document together but don't hold your breath.
