  1. Well today I picked up my car, a 427 Windsor 73 Mach 1, from the shop and I am more than pleased. I had dismantled the manifold so I could have it powder coated black. They did the install as I am have never been comfortable with "wiring". As has been written easy cold start, crazy throttle response and just a very linear build of power. Going 75 in 5th and I am just touching the pedal. They did a very clean install given the harnesses, wire galore. I had them mount the ECU and connector behind the glovebox. I am glad I waited on Edelbrock getting this system sorted. Now to sell my Edelbrock air-gap, Quickfuel carb and Pertronix distributor...

  2. I went with Dakota Digital in my 73. I did not want the digital display though. [img]https://i.imgur.com/xiDugoa.jpg[/img]
  3. I have had this for 45 years, resealed twice and loads of critters smoked, the biggest being a Canada goose. [URL=https://app.photobucket.com/u/boxhead61/p/523265a1-720c-479e-b446-a9e48f4f4170][IMG]https://hosting.photobucket.com/albums/aa437/boxhead61/IMG_3240%201_zpswiz1ssis.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
  4. I have stunned a number of modern Mustangs, Camaros and a few Harley's with my 2017 Boxster S. I could have run over the Harley guy at 110. That said, my 73 tweaked Mach 1 and 70 Dart Swinger are just fun to drive.
  5. So I tried to do a walkaround, about 90 seconds, while trying to import here it came as 150 MB so not allowed. What am I missing as I have seen longer ones, minutes, at the below MB so what am I missing?
  6. Welcome. Whereabouts in north Idaho? I am typing from my cabin ~20 mi NE of Sandpoint.
  7. She has already has seen and felt this one. Kinda runs with the new GT-500... https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a15099555/2017-porsche-718-boxster-s-pdk-automatic-test-review/ Ouch...
  8. Hence my question. Same goes on with my Mopar forum where the A bodies apparently had to start their own forum from the "collectables".
  9. Funny as recently I was talking with my wife about my interest in the subject car. She replied, "what does it do that the 2017 Boxster S doesn't". I lacked an answer though I really like the new Mach 1.
  10. Can you add a column with the 71/72 dimensions?
  11. I have coated JBA short tubes in my 73 Mach 1 with 9.5" deck 427 Dart Windsor that will be available early October when I return home. I have 1300 miles on them with factory z-bar, PS and PB.
  12. Clearly you have not worked in the oil and gas industry to realize the capital spent to take a barrel of oil to a quart of oil.
  13. I have ~2000 miles on my SoT coil over system and am thoroughly pleased with it. I went with the street valved shocks, 4 1/2 leaf mid-eyes from Shaun, Bilsteins in the rear and a 12.7:1 conversion on my steering box (Power Steering Services). The cars rides and handles extremely well with zero harshness in any way.
  14. Wow. I really can't see myself running so close to the edge to really notice a difference in front bumper weight.
  15. I have a full set of gauges that I removed from my 73 when I went Dakota Digital. All were operating fine when removed.
  16. I had Power Steering Service rebuild my box with the 12.7:1 conversion and it is outstanding.
  17. Another range day today dialing in my 338-06 handloads for an upcoming mountain goat, moose and elk hunt in far north BC. This assuming the borders open, the outfitter gets into the camps, flights are sorted and my recent aching lower back all sort out...
  18. In no particular order, Sub-frame connectors Street or Track front coil over package with 4 1/2 mid-eye leafs and Bilstein street tuned shocks Dart based 427 Windsor with Vintage Air Front Runner drive including A/C, PS Tremec TKO 600 5 speed Dakota Digital gauge package #6... 12.7:1 power steering box build by Power Steering Services
