Welcome dude,
Missed you and Johnny this year at Carlisle!
 :schh:
The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

Thanks guys. Sorry I didn't make it to Carlisle this year. I missed you guys too! I had my hands full with a baby Trunk Monkey! I hope to make it to Carlisle next year and will be at the JBMN Summer blast this year.



If you haven't seen my car before here are some pix.







I went down to the zMax Wednesday night Drag & Brag Series earlier this week; basically a test and tune run-watcha-brung event with prizes for best ET, Best reaction time, top speed and best burnout.

I managed 4 runs into the 12's and had low 13's the rest of the night. Not bad considering the usual :censor: track prep and the fact that temps were well into the 80's.

One of the members from the local forum shot some great videos for me and just posted them to youtube.

I was racing a considerabley slower ricer Honda Civic in this vid. so I gave him a 4 second head start then ran him down and beat him by 1.6 seconds.

Here's a run against a Chevy HHR

This Mustang had Cobra badges on it. I'm not sure if it was or not ...

Here's another vid. This one's a new Camaro RS.

I asked the guy if it was the V8 version and unfortunately it's just a V6.

.087 was my best reaction time of the night.

Thanks.

It has a PI swap with an '04 Explorer motor and a Ford SVO (Eaton M112) Supercharger on it. It was built and programmed by RobertP.

Here's a link to the full list of upgrades and a few more pictures that I posted on Roberts website.

Check out Rob's homepage. There's some more Pictures that I took at the JBMN Summer Blast two years ago in the slideshow on the homepage. Also, the flyby audio file that plays on the homepage is my car.

I see you have the "'97 Cup holder" mod.  Awesome!    :joys:

I did not see a dyno?  What were your HP and TQ numbers?
