Well boys and girls the journey is over. The blown 03 motor is gone and the new one is bad ass. We are still in dyno tune phase with air/fuel at 12.2 will go for round two on monday if possible. Develop dyno problem on Friday. The idle is a little high but will get that adjusted. Idling around 1000rpms need to be around 700-800. Need a stronger spring on the Accufab throttle body, it doesnt want to close at idle. These are minor issues to deal with. Need to get air/fuel around 11.8. Now for the good news this thing rocks. It has so much power with the new cams and heads worked. It not as scarry as Uncle Larrys but almost. The 2.8 pulley is getting 14# of boost. The new high performance clutch is a rocket. Trying to stay off the boost till I get some more miles on but this car is a blast. The down side is it is really loud with the headers and with the cam set up and Bassani system it screams. Plan to work on making it a little quiter. Want do full dyno pull till we get about a thousand miles on the motor. That want take long a this pace since I have put 250 on car since yesterday. Would have posted this sooner but having to much fun. Plan to go to hwy 6 tonight at Sams. Edmond strike the post on Bad news on the Motor! :thumbsup: :raise: :fordflag:

Hey Carl, sorry I missed ya at Sam's, but I went to Otto's first and that place was JAM PACKED with american muscle. I went ot Sam's at about 9:20is (I think) and the place was pretty dead. But I think I might have saw you turning on Westheimer from 6 while I was headed north on 6 towards Sam's. Was that you????

Hey everyone, thanks for the input last night on the black 03 clutch issues. Nathanials has ordered a new 03 factory clutch till we can get the bugs worked out on the stage 2 clutch . Will leave car at shop tomorrow for them to install by late thursday or friday to make the Austin trip. I hear the weather is going to be great. :thumbsup:
