Seems like this place has turned from cars to politics and well I'm tired of hearing about the chump in charge.

I currently have my hatches top end pulled off my car because I'm swapping out my lifters(had two collapsed ones). Just changed my radiator(3 row SVE), water pump, and thermostat on my drop. I bought a little blu tooth JBL speaker for $28 on eBay and it's been coming in handy taking care of the tunes. Gotta keep those foxes on the road!

My car is currently at the paint shop (since December ) for a complete color change. So far it’s stripped to bare metal and everything is getting aligned. Once I get it back I’ll be rebuilding my rearend will 3.73s, installing my Maximum Motorsports torque arm and pan hard bar.

How do you like street driving with a locker? I'm running cobra brakes on my '86 too but I kinda wish I would've just went with rear GT brakes because I can't fit 15" drag wheels out back. Motor setup sounds like its a good little combo that'll murder gas. lol

What color are you going with? 3.73's are my favorite gear so far, good all around gear IMO.

Why not go 408 now since you're taking it apart or is apart? Ok I was wondering how that was going to work out with having a locker rear on a DD. I've never driven one but I've heard about them. Yeah get those matched up, I had to do the same with my intake now I'm just trying to find the right lower intake gaskets that'll allow bigger ports.

The secret to passing smog is reduced timing. Your other post said you had excessive timing advance. This measurably increase your NOx and hydrocarbon output. 7-13 degrees base timing is allowed for 302s. You want to run 7 for the lowest emissions.

I just picked up a 89 hatch, currently fixing all the little problems it has no a/c, heater, passenger window not working, bad 2nd gear syncros and other little things. I did however pick up a On3 turbo kit with upgraded bov, wastegate and intercooler.

I thought it was 8-12 degrees was allowed, I just get another spout connector and modify it so it doesn’t work to get some cars to pass, just can’t drive long that way

Some guy who builds motors in his garage in SF, he provides you with flow sheets too. Only problem is I lost his number and I kinda don't remember exactly how to get to his place. Does really good work tho, he showed me a motor he was building a guy to hit 4 digits with.

1. A coyote-swap in a Fox for a friend in Cali.
2. A Gen3 Hemi swap in a 67 Dodge Dart convertible that I had to have.
3. A 4.6 4v build for a old friend in Kansas.

Is he swapping it to that black vert? I didn't know they made convertible Darts! You definitely got some projects on your hands. What's the hardest part about the coyote swap? I'm going to do mine sometime in the future when I blow my motor.

Finishing up the DSE install on my cougar. It's going slow since I'm going to school at the moment.

Just got done doing R&D with JBA to make headers available for those who chose to stay sbf when using the suspension.

333 short block is going to a somewhat local machine shop to get some issues addressed.

was that HYFLOYDS on here? I know he had a flow bench at his house and lived in that area.

I had Ed Curtis at FTI do runner work, plenum work and port match my victor jr carb style intake. I'm over $800 into this stupid thing including the purchase of the intake!

How do you like street driving with a locker? I'm running cobra brakes on my '86 too but I kinda wish I would've just went with rear GT brakes because I can't fit 15" drag wheels out back. Motor setup sounds like its a good little combo that'll murder gas. lol
FYI Ron Sutton racing out of Sacramento now offers a soft locker setup that is not bad at all on the street! if you already have a locker he will just sell you the springs.

My project has 4 digit horsepower potential, currently has 4.10’s with a Cobra 31 Spline Differential, I’m going to go with the newer 35 Spline Strange S-Trac for the 8.8, will drive on the street too much for a spool, unfortunately the S-Trac costs $1300.

Trying to finish up the 363 Setup, with Holley EFI, and a bunch of shit. Time is hard to come by these days.

Then I picked up a 17 in November that has been itching for some parts to get put on it as well. Currently have a Cobra Jet Manifold, longtubes, twin 67 TB, and Cold Air waiting to go on.

HYFLOYDS info or post is gone tried searching name and nothing is coming up...

Found this place in TX: for $600 they can get the RPM Airgap to flow 330cfm http://www.abbottssuperflowport-polish.com/Intake-Flow-Numbers.html
