The best part is partaking of the contents to get the engine cover....

1990 GT, 347 / 76mm turbo setup OUT AND GONE!

New setup going in. Dove headed 545 with a plate kit to 400, progressive, Th400 etc. etc. etc.

Looks good in there. It's already Ford blue so it matches perfectly.

Lite--cast iron?

I think that Chris should use this Lite technology for his aluminum C&C Hemi.
It should really be Lite.
Ok...too many beers.
Turn off the machine...

Keith, It definitely would have been cheaper than the HRE sheet metal intake I got for it. Be alot easier to try different intake designs too. I could get drunk while designing a new intake. Jeff could you come over to the shop & let's get started on one. :lol:

Jeff, I tip my hat to you for going green. You showed the proper way to recycle an empty 12 pack box... You are still Da Man !!! :lol: :lol:

My simple "in-car" cam swap turned into a pull out and tear it down exercise..................But I'm gettin' closer.



I hope to fire it up before going back to work Thursday night.

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

Sorry Nevs. That's a keeper. :lol: :lol: I built it for my Mom with a 289 c4. When she was done with it, she gave it back to me. A 460 for this car is on the "to-do" list. 8) That whole "money" thing always gets in the way. :lol: :lol:

Hi Russ, the building was 11,500 including color choice and insulation under the roof. The floor was 6200 including a 20 x 20 pad out front. Add in electricity and a compressor, and the whole package was just under 20K. Besides the wiring, I just sat back, drank beer, and watched the pros go to work. 8) :lol:
