The rear end suspension is pretty much done. Had them
Do 3.73 gears while they did the Axels with new bearings. Rear cobra brake also done. I'll get pics of the front end suspension on Tuesday.

I picked up Mac flow path mufflers, flowmaster 2.5" tailpipes, 18" SVE series 3 wheels. Had to switch to reverse offset front control arms for the 18" wheels to clear.... I'm Still waiting for the hydroboost system to arrive.

Nice. Looks like it should take a corner.

Yeah it should handle great! I may send it out for paint and body work next.. I'm not sure. I don't want anything to expensive but it does need a paint job.

So what are the cubes ending up? Compression ? How big of cam? what rpm do you want the most use out of?

So I changed things up and ford strokers is building me a Dart 427. I'm having them port match a super victor efi. I'm kinda stuck, not sure what to do about intake. So many options! 90 elbow with throttle body? 4150 throttle body or something like a Holley terminator efi. Anyone have any knowledge on these self tuning systems?

Thanks for the help

Not a specific answer to your question, but in general the self tuning EFI systems have their own stand alone box that holds the "tune", and seem to run pretty well from what I have seen. As far as street driveability goes, they make it really easy, as a tune can easily tune for WOT/racing applications but street scenarios are a lot more challenging to keep controlled.

Thanks for responding I picked up the Holley HP hopefully I won't have any drivability issues.

Slow process, my coyote swap with whipple new edge is taking priority but we got the motor pulled on the foxbody. Damn it's dirty in here... the Scott fab panels are not installed yet just sitting in there.

Nice! I'm a holley efi tuner. You picked the right stand alone. They are fantastic. You will need to find someone to get a tune from, but once its dialed in, it will adapt as you drive. I would run the elbow and an 80mm tb on it. 6066 makes a really nice elbow.

Thanks for the reply! I picked up a accufab carb style throttle body for it.. hope that setups will work!

Are you going for more compression with the Dart 427? 9.5:1 is really low for that cam.

Ignore that previous cam this is the cam it's got in it..


Compression is 10.6:1
