Default Supercharged 3V into a 65 Falcon Hardtop

I continue on my quest to swap (the easy part) and get running (the harder part) the 3V out of a 2006 mustang, now with an E-Force Supercharger, into my 1965 Ford Falcon Hardtop protouing car.

I have the engine and transmission in the car, everything fits nicely with some shorty headers, I tried long tubes but the narrow Falcon frame rails make it a no go.

My current challenge, cooling. I have a Fluidyne radiator for an S197 and have it fitted. But what about coolant routing? The Edelbrock E-force requires moving to the 07' and newer coolant flow layout, but if I am going to spend the money, is there a better/cleaner way to route the cooling lines? Or just go with the 07 routing? I will be doing a custom Ron Francis wiring harness and tucking everything I can and cleaning up all the stock cooling line mess would also be nice. Any thoughts or advice?

Thanks. I am going to try and at least set the blower on top this coming weekend, as well as get some more of the interior parts set in place. Once I do I can take a few updated shots of how it is all looking.

The only way to be any cooler was if it was a '64 or '65 Ranchero.

Hah, sorry, not a Ranchero fan at all.

So anyone have any thoughts on the cooling. Do I just go 07' up routing and call it a day or is there a better way?

I'm using a stock fitment aluminum radiator from eBay in my 69 Falcon build. They make them with driver or passengers side outlets.
That Ron Francis stuff is awesome, I use it in every build I can.

Sweet! No idea about the best way to plumb the radiator but keep us posted on this!

I have the radiator already. Fluidine for the S197. It is huge compared to a stock Falcon unit but I figured out how to make it fit. Should give plenty of cooling. The question is how to most efficiently and visually cleanly route the coolant hoses themselves.

Looks Killer. My buddy had a Falcon back in high school. I loved that car.

Why not just use easily available cooling parts? It's going to look rad regardless.
