I'm glad to see that goof ball gone too. There's no room for talk like that. Remember what your momma taught you (or should have taught you!) if you don't have something positive to say, keep it to yourself! LOLs! I can't wait for a dry warm day to have a blast in that machine Dan. You've further inspired me to continue my quest into V8-dom!

i too would love to see this car in person sometime in the better weather. the concept of a powerful sweet sounding v8 in a relativly light and great handling chassis has always been a great idea.

First dyno tune. Apparently there are some issues related to cooling still to work out(we need a different Rad and Puller Fan setup)as well as a new intake system(the engine was collapsing the filter at 6000 RPM) but not a bad run 337RWHP and 328RWTQ on a corrected Mustang(Heartbreaker) Dyno. Sounds way better, runs way better, moves like stink.

man, I can't believe I missed this thread!
I had a ride in this thing at Johns place last year and he almost needed an interior detail after the ride was done. It sounds amazing too.

Good Stuff man!

So how does it get classed for insurance? It no longer factory OEM items in it. Custom with an appraisal?

I think we have a solution for the cooling. I have heard of the tarus fan, apparently a Volvo pusher works well too. I think the BMW pusher is a good fan just need to wire it to always on. At that rate im not sure how long it will last but I am willing to find out.

If anyone wants to see it in person come out to a trillium AutoX this season. I should be at most of them.
Last year the car had minimal tuning; sounds and performs way better now.
Custom insurance with an appraisal; my ins company is really good and seems to be happy with only taking a minimum. Otherwise I can have it insured directly as a hot rod.

I'm not really in Hammer much any more. I do technically live there but only really in town two or three times a month.


Rubbing issues still exists, I am going to have to pull the fenders, or roll them flat. That as well as a few other problems/enhancements should be completed by the next AutoX. Cant wait to put the A/C back in!
