Hey Scotty, meant to mention sooner about the "thanks" in your post about the traction pieces! Glad I could help out. Great to see the 'unpopular' fullsize Fords hauling butt! I dont recall seeing, but what were your 60' times? Anymore plans to wring this car out some more at the track? Steve.................
RHP has been buried for a year now with no end in site.
I have enjoyed driving the LTD on occasion but no time for track. She is certainly high 11 second capable as is and I am happy with that. The SCJ headed 460 has exceeded expectations on many levels.
A 557 4 bolt CJ short block, AFR heads etc etc is in the works for the next engine.
After a recent chat with Stan Johnson at FPA it looks like the car will go in for the updated header work in late November (ish) to create the 1 7/8" to 2" step headers with 3" collectors talked about in the tech section. Tooling will be made, headers fabbed from tooling and checked for fit. Once the fit is correct Stan will start taking small deposits for the production units.
After I have the first two pair of headers, one for the LTD and one for the 1976 Thunderbird, I will be more inclined to proceed with both builds. I have 80% of the pieces already for both builds.
The Thunderbird will be an AFR headed stroker, 4 bolt splayed D0VE block and a Vortech V7 ysi with billet impeller. Think Super Coupe.
First mock up below.
A build thread is possible if there is interest.
