  1. Mayday Brewery Car Meet

    Same here Disney. In fact, Brodie is the only reason I knew about either one LOL Matt
  2. ITSnolongerASIX 1966 Mustang

    After unsuccessfully attempting to heat up the trunk panel in front of the tank in order to allow the bulkhead fittings and fuel lines to be straight, I cut out the section and did what Disney and I had been talking about doing all along. The charred peal and seal is from that attempt. Small cutoff wheel was giving me fits so out went my give a damn and in came the grinder. I put together a super simple 90* bend with some sides to box it in and surprisingly enough it fit up really nicely. You can laugh at the over-cuts. Its a goofy place to work and I was getting sparks in my glasses and hair so I wasnt on my game. I Lebron-ed it...sorry. ANYways, here it is welded up. The bottom row and right side was super nice to weld but the top and the right side gave me fits. Its solid now. Little seam sealer on the underside and some paint and itll be gooooooood. Im gonna put some peal and seal around the box and then I will likely use the shelf it created to help hold up the false floor I will build to protect the fuel lines. Matt
  3. Finally getting busy on Nathan's foxbody...

    Got to check it out in person today. Looks aaamaaaazing, sounds great and runs like a champ. Little bit of break in and it'll be even better! Thanks for letting me ride in the old Coupe again. It's time for it to truely start it's next life and it's in good hands!!! Matt

    Cant like it enough. Congrats to both of you, cant wait to see it with 100K more miles on it because neither of you can leave it alone!! Matt
  5. Random thought thread

    I thought about it a while back but its just too pricey for me right now. Im good with the level of mods I have at the moment and so is my wallet but if anything changes...Ide love to put a VMP or Roush blower on and a super safe tune for the street to have some fun with it. Matt

    Heard back and it appears that all is well. Its adding a ton of timing during the 3rd gear pull like it always did before, only had any "knock" during the 2nd gear pull where it spun like mad. Cant hit the track tonight but Im gonna try for next week and see if I got any of my missing mph back. Might try out the sticky Mickey's as well if I have time to snag em before heading to the track. Matt

    Hate to hear it. Shouldnt make your rates go up tho seeing that it wasnt her fault. At least thats how State Farm did me both times. So long as she's ok then its all good. My best friend is a truck driver and I give him an ear full every time we go anywhere about how terrible some truck drivers seem to be around here. He agrees and says he can name a few personally LOL Matt
  10. LS3 advice.

    My car is a ton of fun at its power levels. Im sure JohnC would agree with his as well. We would both agree that a liiiiiiiiiiiiittle more wouldnt hurt but that rabbit hole can ruin a car quick. Get it sounding the way you want then add a light sprinkle of boost (or heads and a cam) and then drive the wheels off of it! Matt

    Very true...thanks guys. Thats exactly what Ill end up doing IF the leak opens up enough to hear or messes with the tune at all. I sent a log off to Lund to see if they want me to look at anything or if anything is still funky that they can tell. See what they say! Matt

    Dang hate to hear that! Matt
  13. NewER DD 2015 Mustang GT

    Sounds SO much better and runs great. Some of the rasp is back at certain throttle levels and its just a tad louder at highway cruise so I might toss a longer resonator on it to try and tame it some...but its not unbearable by any means, Kathleen and Luke didnt mind it at all and it sounds dead sexy at WOT so I may leave it. Not a necessity, getting the tune happy and making sure there arent any other false knock sources are then itll be gooooooooooooooooooooooooood. Matt
  14. LS3 advice.

    If he's got cash to burn hell yeah! If not, skip the top end kit and go straight blower. THEN if you still feel the itch, add the rest as you go! Unless the idea is to stay NA obviously. Those motors wake up nicely either way you go, but like the Coyote, you have to pay to play. Matt

    If I can find the 3 mph I lost last time at the track and maybe tack another to it I MIGHT have a chance! We could BARELY get a mig handle down in there and THOUGHT we had it sorted but its still leaking ever so slightly. I agree about wanting it 100% sealed but Im gonna do some logging and see where its at. Its a massive pain in the ass to pull BUT if its enough to throw off the tune then Ill pull it out again and see what I can do. If I ditch this set I will grab some ARH's or Kooks for sure, just need to get out the lube for when I have to bend over to pay for em Matt
