  2. ITSnolongerASIX 1966 Mustang

    Rolled her out into the chilly sunshine yesterday to make room in the garage for some short term storage and to move it on to the next and final phase of the swap! Disney loaded it up and hauled it the mile or so to his house and it is now in good company of quite a few fast fords...and a delinquent Bimmer or two. Hopefully some of the quick will rub off and make this old girl fun again! Matt

    17x8 Torque Thrust II's with BFG Sport Comp 2's, 245 rear 225 front ( I can get the entire size if you want after work) The fronts are the standard offset for most 60's mustangs (4.5?) and the rears are either 5.5 or 5.75 to accommodate for the stock width Fox 8.8. Im going to cut it down the the correct width one day, sell the rears and buy a set of 17x7's in the correct backspacing, put them on the front and the ones currently on the front in the rear and learn my lesson about getting in a hurry and not cutting down the rear to fit in the first damned place LOL Matt

    Meant to do this a while back but then the Photobucket BS went down. Here are some other shots from the Mustang 6 Association's 6 banger show. This show somewhat solidified the gut feeling that it was time to move on from the little six. Like posted before, she ran great all the way there, looked great while there and attracted a ton of attention. The ride home wasnt so hot but thats ok, its in the past. Anyways, on to the pics. This picture was posted in the M6A's monthly news letter and was the only pic they got of my car at the show if I remember correct. Then a buddy of mine followed us up there and snapped these shots before he (wisely) ditched us to go to the BIG show going on downtown. Had I known what I know now, we woulda bolted shortly after them and joined them. Thats ok tho, we made the best of it! Then, quite some time later, someone pointed out to me that Ford Performance had posted an article on their website about the show and the little six was mentioned and had a couple pictures included! Link to the article: http://performance.ford.com/enthusiasts/quick-look/2017/09/mustang-6-association-hosts-six-banger-party-.html Cool way to end an era tho. I wont get any notice with the new setup BUT I will (hopefully) be driving the SNOT out of it as often as possible and Ide much rather that than some small time attention here and there whenever I happen to feel like getting it running right enough to take out again. Moving on! Matt

    Both sides are done, pain in the rear! I dont envy 351/stock shock tower guys AT ALL!!! @JRANGER you should come see what I mean (forget...are you modding/removing the shock towers?) There is room, but barely and the driver side header makes getting to the rear 2 plugs a massive pain. The two straight plug wire boots ended up being a shade too deep/long before they "clicked" on the plug. Cut them down slightly when adding the heat covers and they are much less of a pain. The entire passenger side is super close to the tower and it makes getting the plug wire on the plug a bit of a pain as well. I would love to update the suspension down the road for better ride quality and safety...but the thought of shaving (or at least modding) the towers to allow more room add to the appeal. Shes as together as I can get it at this stage and cleaned up from all the dust/grime/hand prints etc and ready to go to the next and final stage of the swap. Wired up, fired up and tuned to perfection...cant wait! Matt

  10. Random thought thread

    Yep, similar findings back when I did the maths. I dropped down to the 13ish mpg range vs 17-19 with 93 so I would have to fill up quite a bit more often but it was worth it to me, especially when the track was open. Im back on 93 now just so I dont have to make the trip out of my way to get gas with it being as hectic as it is, but when things calm down a tad and especially when the warmer weather comes back Ill be back on the corn for sure!

  12. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    Im extremely interested to see how it all looks in primer and then paint. Ive never seen that kit on a 65/66 in person. Matt

    Ok, now I dont have to worry bout whether the plug boots/wires are gonna flop over and burn up. Im going over the top and booting up all 8 while Im at it, tho truthfully the only 2 that I was worried about were the rear driver side. Gonna do the other side tomorrow, put the intake back on and then give it one more once over. Might try to clean it up a bit while waiting for a spot to clear up in Disney's shop. Matt

    Heck yeah! Would love to see more progress on it! Matt
  15. Tuning LS3 for E85

    OH, one other thing. Once you go full E85 you may notice the motor takes longer to fire up on cold starts. Not sure if you will or wont but on the Coyote that is the case for anyone running E, especially in colder months. Im back on 93 for the cold months and it fires up instantly again but I remember wondering what was wrong the first real cool morning that mine took a couple more turns to fire. Dont panic, its normal. Matt
