    How do you get an engine running like this?

    most blower surge can be handled by cracking the butterfly a little to up the idle. I'm not real sure the big fascination with blower surge, we don't have it when nitro is in the tank.

    2015 test drive

    the eco boosts are pretty fun, I just upgraded a turbo on one in the shop this week. waiting on an intercooler and I can button it up. It will prob max the direct injection since there is not really any options to put more fuel in the motor unless you run a second set of injectors.

    2007 convertible

    the 3v' has potential. Just watch out for high mileage ones they have cam phaser issues but those are mostly in trucks. If they start making noise replace, if it brakes there will be valves crashing into pistons.

This car is rough and going to require alot of work. headlight...

    rear window weatherstrip

    so the chrome is mounted on studs like the windshield, the only chrome I have dealt with is in the 67-72 trucks and you got to order special rubber because the chrome actually goes into a grove in the rubber. I have not cut then rear window out yet but will this week. I will not be using any...

    72 race car update

    yes you can keep a lot of the original sheet metal. how big of a tire are you going to run? You could just do a mini tub and keep a smaller tire and leave the frame rails alone. That kit looks like it attaches to the original frame rails. If you want to do a true back half it will be much easier...

    halo headlights

    Who has experience with the halo headlights that are offered by CJ pony parts. I'm wanting to know how bright are the halos at full brightness, do they put off enough to see a little. I'm looking to put a set on my drag car and I really don't want to run the h4 bulbs. [/align]

    Clear grill light lens?

    I actually have a set that I'm going to try and convert to driving lights for my drag car since it does not have headlights. I will prob get to it later this summer. I'm thinking that an led bulb might be a better choice than a halogen because of the heat load that might be generated in the...
