99blackponygt build thread

mainly stock 73-up motor, d3's ported(was going to do dove's but out of the bugdet,and using my old head was just flat out cheaper!
saturday night special cam kit,750 holley, c-6 with a shift kit, and 2000 stall. maybe a little spray. just something mild to get the car mobile . and im sure it will just fry tires.
everything is going into a 99gt

hopefully tyler will post the pic of the car!






lots of goodies



got most of the block prep done, just need to hone it,wash,install the cam bearings.



started cleaning the rest up.


starting getting the heads out for cleaning, removed the springs, do some clean up.


everything cleaned, i knocked new cam bearing in it(yes i have that tool too!)
honed, crank checked great, new bearing rings etc!

The heartbeat stops here!
I bleed blue oval blue, and **** hugger orange!

just waiting on a few dumb parts now


and a idea of what it will look like


going to start resealing the heads and do some clean up work on them, and everything on this thing will be going blacked out. only thing shiny will be the bolts.

ideas of black out!

Why? D0VEs dont flow any better than D3s. You'll gain compression but you'll probably be over 10:1 and have to run race gas only unless your tune and cam choice is spot on.


Who put the idea in peoples head that with everything else being 100% equal/the same D0VEs are better than D3s?

OK, I understand now. I love it when friends try to sell you something .

What I dont understand is why people take their D3s off and spend big money for a set of D0VEs for no real gain.

Im done now. I dont want to start an arguement.

he wasnt selling me anything lol...hes actually the main one putting this project together, and was nice enough to let me use his ported heads for the motor without charging me...

i have no idea what is done to his doves, how much he paid, or what the gains are...so i cant comment on that

it needs the compression, and it will be lucky to have 8.5 to one with this setup.
