In the near future I am installing Nitrous and a Roll Bar/ For now I am looking to bump past the 11.5 barrier. Until now i have just done minor tuning without any success. The Engine dyno # at 452 RWHP and 456 tq. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMuUTG_mzDc/

The Changes . Switching From Hossier QTPs and VW metrics to M/T Drag ETs and Front ETs
Metco aluminum LCAs and ICM bracket http://www.metcomotorsports.com/proddetail.asp?prod=MCA0010
Switching From generic 20w50 to Royal Purple synthetic oil.
Going to try out a dual inlet ram air on sale at Jegs '

Here is a good article From Ford Muscle on another Ram Air test http://www.fordmuscle.com/archives/1999/12/ramairbox/

What do u guys think might be gained from these changes. If I could pick up a couple tenths and a 2-5 MPH from my previous best a I would be happy. Rich

I have the Ram-Air box you see in the Ford Muscle article, it's very well constucted and offers numerous size options as well as base plates heights.

Looking forward to hearing your results.

I would think that the ram air will help a bunch. My '72 has had a Stealth on it and the carb was very close to the hood. Opening the scoop isn't gonna help. It is too short to do much if anything at all.

I like that intake setup! I actually just got my "728" on ebay for like $30~ brand new.

if you want to save a few bucks, here is one for $60 shipped. http://compare.ebay.com/like/230509...fee30af&itemid=230509884450&ff4=263602_263632

I bought the same thing but mine was cheaper. Took me about 2 minutes with some chrome polish to remove the "scratches" on mine! Using it on my '87 Mustang, routing the intake tubes to the fog light holes.

I will p[ost my results.
