While engine and body work on the other two take a while, this one got to enjoy riding around town looking good this weekend. Once a patchwork of green and black, it now sports an eye catching blue and black two tone, setting it apart from the pack. It definitely draws attention everywhere it goes. Obligatory before and afters below.
Despite the car having sat for a while, it didn't take much to get it cranked up and running. With consistent low oil pressure during testing, the decision was made to replace the engine and put it aside for rebuild at a later date. The replacement is a 306 short block with 10:1 compression pistons, Ford Racing X303 cam, GT40 heads machined with 2.02 valves, and 1.6 Ford Racing roller rockers. Also installed Trick Flow upper and lower intake, BBK cold air intake, all flowing through long tube headers with Flow Master Super 10 (LOUD) mufflers. We kept the stock T5 tranny with a 3.08 posi rear end. Part of the cosmetics overhaul included a 5 lug conversion with 18" Cobra R wheels, as well as a Steeda triax shifter, and updated LED tail lights and headlights.
That's where it is for now, but things can change after it heads to the track for testing and tuning this weekend.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
