      Not mine, and I didn't do it.
      But I watched, helped and was amazed.

      800hp/1000Nm at the hubs @1bar.
      Will it hit 1200hp at the hubs? We'll see. 2bar will come once injectors are sorted.

          Nice!
          Your wheels look like the same wheels that were originally on my 95LSC when I bought it.

              Its not hard but its not easy at the same time. It would be much easier if my hands were half the size and my forearm was 6 inches longer
              I have to do another two soon too.

                Hey everyone... Just finished installing 96-98 cobra intake cams with new tube seals and plugs (autolite 764s gapped at 0.052). The cobra cams had keyway notches on them so I just ground them off instead of grinding the keyway on the gear itself which is what people usually do. I did not degree them (installed them in a friend’s garage and didn't have the time, tools, or confidence to degree it) but I hope to in the near future. I highly recommend this mod... The low end losses if there are any are really minimal and the mid range and upper rpm power is noticeably better now.

                Today, someone's very young blonde daughter was out shopping in daddy's new F-150 four door pickup and backed into the neon light of my mark. broke the lense and bulb. I was standing in the checkout line at the hardware store and saw it all. she got out, ran to the back, ran back to the drivers door, jumped in and roared off. I just stood there shaking my head. sad part is the damn light was operational. I'll just have to find another one. by the way, Lowe's parking lot cameras are fake or don't work at all. at least she didn't crumple the trunk lid....

                Managed to pull the dash out all by my lonesome. Was going to axe the wife for help but yea, no. I just grabbed it in the center and pulled it out of the cabin.

                Evaporator was leaking and heat core wasn't, replaced them both. Also rebuilt the seat motors and replaced the little o-rings in the climate control box that fail to seal properly. I had to modify the air-box with a dremel cut off wheel in order to fit the Four Seasons branded evaporator. The tubes are configured differently but share the same output as the stock unit so I started cutting. I took a chance and used flex tape to cover the open areas rather than deal with any chemical odor from epoxy or JB.

                  Air box fun. I'm pretty impressed with the Flex Tape. I was going to go with some West Systems epoxy and glas that I had but did want the smell or the added work.

                      I got to admit to laughing also. the car lasted 22 years before getting hit. the fact that some chippie did it is just typical. twenty fifth of last month some young cretin ran a red light and teeboned my '03 dodge diesel pu and did $14,000.00 in damage to it. I'm still laughing about that. less than 80K on it.
