Lots of guys are doing EFi conversions on LS motors these days too
those carbs are the way to go i think. self tuning learning carb would be sick
Agreed. I was not thrilled about the carb setup. I am probably going to go this way for an efi
Those Cobras are nice! Personally I like the Type 65 Coupe, but either are badass.
The 302 isn't slow in a 2100-2200lb car
Yeah I am scared of the 302. I could not imagine having a 427
Manual everything as well
302 should be more than enough to have fun with! Will make some nice noises while doing it too
It sounds evil
Very easy motor to get 300whp out of for not much money
Someday I'll have a fox body. Whenever I get serious about it something always pops up like a wedding or a house
My cousin had a Jimmy with a 383 stroker that was extremely boisterous. Doesn't need to be huge to make a lot of noise.
I could have had my Tesla and old truck if it weren't for weddings and houses.
You dug that grave with your silly "planning for the future"
And 300hp in a 2200 pd car is junk. Your like a 14 sec car.
I'd go big block all day. Next whip will be a little coupe with a big block. If it can't lift wheels it ain't worth it.
I'm kidding. It'll be fun with a decent 302. The 48 spun tires just fine with one. Plus your out there for fun.
most of us fox body mustang folk easily ran 13/14s with minor bolt ons. and thats in a 3200lb car. He'll have plenty of hp and torque to have fun on the street. He's not building a drag car.
Not all of us will be dead at 40.
Beak is on borrowed time, I had him in the death pool at 27.
Once you cut off the mullet I heard you gain a second....
mullet is at least 1.5sec
And how much would a skullet net you?
He was touch and go a few times there, borrowed time for sure.
Every day is bonus round at this point
It is embarrassing how slow I drive. Again, it will just be my nice weather cruiser and give me something to tinker with.
I also might wrap it myself. I have a thing for dark grey and flat black strips.
Why so slow?
To be fair when you have a cool vehicle you have to drive slow. It's heat bag. You will walk on it from time to time but driving slow is pretty normal.
Also add 15 min to any stop you make and never be in a rush. Everyone will want to talk to you all the time
Don't do it yourself. Ask pimpkins how well wrapping his mini is going
That's a job for professionals.
Got no where to be?
Is it that hard? I have been watching a ton of videos and they make it seem so easy.
It's a mother fucker. There's a reason it costs $$$. Materials are only a few hundy
I feel like I am neurotic enough to be able to pull it off. I love the idea of being able to change colors of the car on my own in my garage over the winters
then buy a kit and plastidip it.
wrapping a car would be fucking torture.
That's a curvy car, it's going to be a bitch to line up but it would be something cool to do over the winter
Plastidip isn't a half bad idea either
