Thanks homie!Either way good luck to you on the never ending build.
Good to see you Dave! It's been awhile.Cool to see that your still with the same car after so many years Scott. Few questions, did you ever get it down the 1/8th before you started the major overhaul of everything? What did it weigh before and what is your target weight? Looks good!
I'll have to look. Run I ran it I have several issues. A tight converter, wastegate issues, and a bad ecu. I trapped [email protected] with all those issues. I got all that fixed and it ran 150x better but never made it back to the track before the trans went. I think the 1/8th was 98mph?Yeah 1/8th stats right before you started the tear down. I bet it trapped well, I had my old GT to 2,995lbs with a 1/4 tank with all the factory accessories before I sold it
I will. But honestly this car already sounds like a Sherman tank. Everything is solid bushing in the rear and now going to a rear c/o setup. It's not built to be a Lincoln haha just has to go fast. Gotta beat Pate at the track with my street car.Nice, I know you have coil overs in the front. Keep an eye out for a thread I'm going to make when I have time about how to install polyurethane isolators on coil over Springs. It makes them ride sooo much better and quieter
Yes sir they are. BNIB Diamond flat tops. Should yield around 11.8:1 CR. Should really help with getting the boost up to 16-20psi. Figured with e85, a2w, and some safe tuning it should run pretty well.Nice. They look like flattops
Well intake mock up is officially finished. Bringing the material and drawings to my fab guy this coming weekend.
Scott that's a really nice mock up. Your guy should have no problem making you something nice from that. My grandfather was always great at making mock ups and drawling up plans. He showed me how to do it when I was a kid. His projects always turned out great because of his meticulous preparation. I wish I had better welding skills and some metal working tools. I have limited fab experience but my last exhaust I did at home. It turned out nice considering I completed it without a welder and it was not prefabbed unit for my car. I used mac lt's cut before the ball flange to keep it a true 3" collector, custom 3" X-pipe I had made for my last set up unfortunately not mandrel bent pipe. Some summit mufflers that look like flowmaster knock offs. 3" tail pipes from the muffler back for a 94 5.0. It went over the axle fine but was a couple inches short. I used 3" to 4.5 clamp on dynamax tips with a rolled lip to bring it out passed the bumper. I had to cut off the hangers on the tail pipes since they were in the wrong place. Then using regular muffler clamps and some flat steel stock I was able to relocate the hangers to correct position like the stock exhaust. The other techs at work were surprised how well it turned out. Point being it feels good to fab or design something that works well yourself. I want to get a decent small welder and get better at welding. Plus some metal shaping and working tools and work on my fab skills. Building something with your own hands is very satisfying. I've considered going back to Wyotech and taking their chassis fab course.Yes sir they are. BNIB Diamond flat tops. Should yield around 11.8:1 CR. Should really help with getting the boost up to 16-20psi. Figured with e85, a2w, and some safe tuning it should run pretty well.

Fabbed some COP stands today for the intake. Bought some coupling nuts and drilled out the threads. I then cut them down to fit snuggly under the COP tab.
