After reading all the threads saying how much of a pain it is to replace the heater core, I was dreading it myself. I was actually thinking about using the A/C core, just so I wouldnt have to replace the heater core.
Well, I replaced it today and I will say that it is NOT as bad as everybody makes it out to be. From start to finish, was about 3 hours. This was my first time doing a heater core in something other than a Ranger, and everything went just fine.

..and yes, I did use an OEM core. Smile

I hear ya. Even though I wouldn't want to do it on a regular basis, it was definitely made easier with the tutorials. Plus, it helped having experience with all the mustangs I've had. Unfortunately, the guy I bought mine from thought he could somehow get to it by cutting the glove box area and brackets off. Luckily he kept all the pieces and I was able to weld it all back together. Rolleyes
