Well, after screwing around with push rod stuff and blow through carbs, its time to change to what i have always wanted. Im selling all my 351 Turbo parts, motor, fuel system and ignition, and installing a 03 cobra motor with twins and E85! Pretty damn excited! ganna keep the boost to about the 20lbs range till i get the short block built. Also got a awesome deal on a Proven Very Built 4R70W non lock up, to help out with occational drives to get ice cream and car shows.
And it begins...
Well spent the last couple days welding/grinding, freezing my butt off working on the firewall. Pretty much done though. Looks like i have a friend that is a body Guy that needs my glide. So we are ganna do some trading, I
Getting a decent paint job with color change. He gets the glide. Pretty happy about that. Going 2010 GT500
Grabber blue, all trim and spoiler going satin black and wheels gloss black
. Should look kinda like the mmr 10.5 car.
Anyway, should be very busy blowing the car totally down to body minus all removal parts now. And finishing up metal work. Here is the fire wall now though. Going to make the brake lines look much better as well.
Was pretty busy this last weekend. But all good things.
And my brother came down this weekend, and after much measuring, leveling and welding, we got the motor and trans mounts in just the right spots. Cross member notched and boxed. And also got the rear fenders cut out a bit, so now the tires wont rub under load.
Car is off to get the chute mount done tonight. And then back to me for engine bay cleanup/smoothing. And Then blast it all apart for paint.
