Well Tstats is getting Mods
« on: February 03, 2008, 11:12:38 AM »
Well :miller: has been getting on my case to post info  on the up coming mods to the 97 Cougar XR7 known as Tstats which is a father and son project. After long talks and decisions (and some head banging) on what mods where going to be done to Tstats. I have to thank the members that gave some great input but I want to especially thank :jake: where ever you are for all the great info you passed before you left us (RIP you dirt poor hot rodder). He warned me of the cost that would accrue when building a DOHC 4.6L so yes this is the biggest of all the mods. A blue printed 4.6L as time proceeds pictures will follow showing progress as things come together I am currently organizing photos and they will be in the next post. 
97 - 4.6L Alpine Green Cougar XR-7 w/ Fiber Concepts Hood, SPC cold air intake, 2.5 SLP Dual Exhaust, Eclipse CD4000 w/ Polk's speakers, Koni Shocks, 11/4" Addco sway bars, and Vogtland more to come.
08 Volvo XC90 loaded.

Where are the pictures???   :picture:
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.

FR500 heads?  Oh no!  What is the CFM for those puppies?

What are the valves made of?  Springs?  Sure the valves are not going to hit the pistons?   :butterfly:

Actually the CFM of the Corba 03 heads with port and polish are slightly better than the FR500 heads. When the heads come back they will have a flow chart which I will post.

Hi Joe how have you been. Well after doing some reseach I was having Malden Machine doing the machine work bore and balancing I had to do all the leg work finding the rotating assembly. I was going to Sean Hyland for the rotating assembly until I found out some of their bad rape so I stumbled on to Modular Mustang Racing.

Pistons are notched to provide clearence and the valves are ground with a five angle seat.
