  2. I made the exhaust. It took me months. The space is crazy tight.
  3. I’m almost ready to start my rebuilt 4.6 DOHC Ford modular.
  4. I’m rebuilding a spare engine I have. Having issues with my junkyard pulled engine. 20 track days on it though. 🙂
  5. Circuit of The Americas, Austin Texas April 28, 2018
  6. This is actually coming onto the front straightaway.

    I replaced the power steering pump because it had a seal leak. The power steering pump drives the hydraulic brake booster.

    dyno

    I'm assuming this result is due to a pretty restrictive exhaust manifold. ?
  10. The horse power restriction is in the exhaust.
  11. Making my steering, exhaust and oil filter all work together was a nightmare. I used the Cobra intake to allow the engine to mount as far rearward as possible and the engine is mounted low for a low center of gravity (and to accommodate the Cobra intake)....the result was cutting and welding the exhaust, replacing the oil filter mount with an adapter (Moroso Remote Filter Adapter 23681). My steering rod is very close to the adapter as it is. One of my pictures shows this mess.
  12. The thing I would do differently is to not take breaks from working on it. I would take a couple months off and forget what I was doing, especially the electronics. My objectives were to keep the stock appearance (more or less), no hood modification, keep the center of gravity low and keep the engine as far toward the rear as possible. This is gonna be a track car, it is nearly there.
  13. I've done this swap. Check out my picture gallery.

    Coilover build

    I have driven this Z with these new coil overs. I used 275 lb. springs in the front and 250 lb. in the rear. Wow is it stiff! I'm not sure what would be the best spring rate.
