  4. Random thought thread

    Im running Corsa axlebacks (used and nearly stolen) and the x pipe is of unknown origins...but...its PIPE. Paying a ton for some pipe is silly. Expensive headers I 100% understand, but X pipes and mufflers...cmon. I bought used and made everything work and have less than $500 in my setup. Yes, I spent quite some time on my back under the car, fitting, fabbing and tweaking it BUT It sounds great, doesnt drone and the car apparently likes it (or isnt held back by it at least) last I checked my time slips. If I had $3k to spend on exhaust, Ide have $2000 towards a blower setup and headers/exhaust! Im not poor, but I dont throw money away if I can help it and the prices of parts for these newer cars kills me. Luckily...there are PLENTY of people who buy new, get bored and sell cheap @Chris My setup isnt for sale, that was the Magnadrone axleback that came on the car. Its long gone and I now have Corsa Extreme mufflers, a generic X pipe and some Vibrant resonators to calm down the rasp. I was saying you could come hear it and know roughly what a Corsa Sport setup sounds like in person. Matt
  5. NICE!!!! I might try to head out there if the weather holds out. Ive been itchin to get out there to try and get some cooler weather times but it hasnt been in the cards. Matt

    Come check out my setup in person sometime. In person is better than videos all day long. You can piece together your own setup for much much much much cheaper than the stupid prices manufacturers are asking these days. Ide be happy to help if I can. Matt
  7. Thought Ide toss up the latest on the old 66. Ill dig up some older pics from the beginning for those who may not be familiar with the car, but heres the latest. UPDATED Summer 2015. Changes listed in red. 1966 Mustang Coupe "Sprint" package 200 ci inline six BONE stock pistons, rods and crank Now .040 bored stock block, custom RaceTech Pistons, stock rods and cranks 292 cam (oooold) Ed Curtis custom cam BIG log 250 head with valve springs for cam, milled for 2V carb direct mount Aussie 250-2V head and intake Holley 2300 500cfm carb by QuickFuel for blow thru Custom Header TE44 turbo Front mount intercooler 3" downpipe split to 2.5" pipes to Flowmaster 40s WorldClass T5 Custom steel driveshaft from Dave's 8.8 with 3.55 gears from Fox Grab a trac 4 lead, mid eye rear springs with 1" lowering blocks New stock front springs with 1.5 coils cut Shelby 1" UCA drop Unisteer Rack and Pinion 17x8 TT2 245 BFG Sports Im sure Im missing a bunch of stuff but you get the jist of it. The carb needs a TON of work and is about to be rebuilt, but she runs SUPER rich at the moment. I put it on Carma's dyno and initially put down an EARTH shattering 151 rwhp LOL. The A/F was off the chart rich (8:1ish) so they did a little tweaking, dropped the jets down to the lowest ones my Holley jet kit had which was only 2 sizes lower than what was already in it and gave it another go. This time the A/F was right around the 9:1 area and she picked up a TON, layin down 243 rwhp but the torque was in the low 300s. Ide love to find someone who can get this carb where it needs to be and see what she's capable of then!!! Oh, and all this was on 20psi with the old 2.5" crush bent downpipe and no mufflers, stock rear end with 2.73 gears. Now with the new exhaust and gears, 15psi feels stronger than 20 ever did!!! Back when I first put this setup together, on a different dyno (which may be where the difference in numbers truely lies) on the smaller stock turbo she put down more HP but less torque, would love to get this sucker tweaked and see what the new setup is worth. Took her to Gatlinburg this past weekend for Shade of the Past which was an adventure in itself. 4th year goin, but the old Mustang put up a fight. She has a bad vibration around 70mph and when you let off the gas it gets really bad which seems to point to a bad U-joint, and then after foolin around showin off a bit she ran like *** and almost made me think I wouldnt be gettin her home lol. She would idle fine, but if you tried to get rolling it wouldnt go, you had to floor the hell out of it and slip the clutch. Once you got movin she would run fine so long as I kept the vac around the 5in-0in area, and she ran awesome with a couple psi boost. I put some fresh gas in and she came back around on the way home but I suspect somethin else is up. ANYways, she at least looked and sounded pretty good! Here are a couple of the few shots I got. Crappy shot, but this was the first time these two cars have been together since highschool...FINALLY we were both able to get the old girls out for the weekend. In the morning after a bit of rain Notice anything similar between the two? Thats all I got, she did make it home and now its time to tear her apart and figure out whats up. New Ujoints are on the way along with a carb rebuild kit and a new balancer. After that I will see about gettin the carb tuned! Matt

    They only need to "see" the cats (hell on our GT's they cant even do that hardly) which is why I wouldnt fool with a seperate catless set of pipes and would hog out the high flows if he was dead set on going catless. If they plug in and the ECU says everything is happy then Marta is happy. Matt

    I need too many other things right now plus I kinda like the 3.55 and I liked that combo in the BlueCoupe. If I do anything to the rear anytime soon it will be taking an inch off each tube so I can run normal offset wheels again!!! Disney talked me into trying to keep the crank trigger wheel setup the Exploder motor came with but I had to figure out a couple issues along the way. Long story short, I decided to keep it simple and stick with the Exploder waterpump, timing cover and balancer and made them work. I drilled the front cover for my dipstick, made an alternator mount and am working on the idler pulley using part of the old driver's side accessory bracket. I was able to get the Alternator on and the belt on to make sure it would work...so far it looks like it might! I have plenty of adjustment to loosen or tighten the slack in the belt and everything appears to be relatively straight. I can shim the bracket or the Alt. if needed. I could have gone with Fox or similar balancer, crank pulley, clockwise rotation water pump and an off the shelf Alternator bracket kit but I would need to mount the crank trigger wheel and sensor and I was afraid I wouldnt have much room to play with up front. This is compact and simple, and hopefully with some time with the grinder and some paint, the idler bracket wont be as much of an eye sore. Might mount the coil packs to it to help hide it, who knows. Moving on! Matt

    AH...gotcha. Well, get out the screw driver and get to work! Then you dont have to deal with rolling around changing it out whenever you can or feel like it and you dont have to toss even more cash at the exhaust! Matt
  11. 2010 Camaro SS

    And I would leave those cats alone, they will flow just fine. Or go oldschool and get out the big screwdriver and go to town Matt
  12. 2010 Camaro SS

    You will gain what by ditching the high flow cats? Toss that $400 somewhere else man sheesh! OR, if your dead set on it, have someone make em for you, its just a coupe bends and could likely be done muuuuuuch cheaper! Matt
  13. Garage Purge

    Holy crap I woulda snatched this up in a heartbeat had I seen it before I bought all the stuff for the new motor. Was even hunting some GT500 mufflers down back before I found the Corsas cheap for the GT. Matt
  14. Your just a blower away...and with the $$$ you already spent on that exhaust you coulda probably been close!!! Matt
  15. Project #whitetrash

    ooooooooooooooooooooo that would be naughty!!! Would require quite a bit of "weight reduction" up front to fit too...but its ok because drag car! Matt
  16. WOW!!!! Sucker is moving and STILL has more in it...crazy! Matt
  17. 2010 Camaro SS

    Finally jeeze! Matt
  18. Project #whitetrash

    WOAH NICE!!!! So...Coyote swap? Turbo Windsor? Big inch Windsor with spray? Matt
  19. Random thought thread

    Dont let the shoulda coulda woulda's haunt you like that, its not fair to you or anyone else that was there that night. The only people that should allow that to haunt them are the ones who sit idly by and watch as things unfold around them and do nothing. You did far far more than nothing and like said above, its very likely that nothing would have helped anyways. Matt

    My stock 6 banger rear was 2.73 geared and was fine with my T5 behind the turbo 6. The 3.55's were MUUUUCH better tho! Matt
  21. ITSnolongerASIX 1966 Mustang

    Mine has a 3.55 geared 8.8 and I loved that combo in my Fox. This thing will eventually be very close to the Coupe mod wise whenever I go aluminum heads an bigger intake but I feel like the GT40P setup will be fine for a bit! The BlueCoupe ran really well on E7's with a Cobra Intake and the TFS1 cam. For now I just hope that the bottom end is happy and runs well after all I did to it...then Ill see where it goes mod wise from there. Matt
  22. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    Bleh im not changin mine, just looks like i was abused as a jacking location or something like that. The drivers side is beat up a bit but nowhere near a bad as the passenger side its nuts! Its solid tho and now its super solid! When I replace the floors Ill beat out the dents from the top and call it a day. Matt
  23. ITSnolongerASIX 1966 Mustang

    Yeah, shoot if this little 302 runs as well and reliably as the BlueCoupe I could see hittin up the Hill for some mid 8 action! I would love that! Make it a comfy reliable cruiser that can scoot down the 1/8 from time to time??? Sounds good to me!!! Matt
  24. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    Busy busy!!! Brackets dont look factory so Im not sure! Hope your front frame sections were nicer than mine, my passenger side was beat all to hell!!! Matt
