    Nice to see the video of it moving under its own power! The engines sound so good!

    Im sure it wouldn't be easy finding a set of tan quarter plastics in good shape. I always hated the thoughts of the interior dye also. Best to leave them as they are.

    It is 100% about prep and using the proper products, I dyed my current dash from porno red to titanium and you'd be hard pressed to tell it isn't the factory dye.

    I've used SEM interior paint before, it's badass.

    Thanks! I used SEM paint/dye. You'll want to scrub the panels good with TSP, then go over them with a wax and grease remover, next you'll want to put the adhesion promoter on there and then the paint/dye. It's a little bit of work but the results will be great and it won't chip or peel like the crap we used back in the day. With as nice as this build is I think it'd be worth your time.

    But it doesnt "chop" thou....LOL!! It is mild mannered, even with the Comp cams installed. Ken says he can do some tuning to make it sound like a cam'd Coyote, so we will see.

    Yes. The VCT and DOHC setup eliminates that cammer sound even with larger cams up to a point. With separate exhaust and intake cams on VCT there is no overlap which creates so much of hte cam sound on a conventional pushrod engine or even on a 3V SOHC 4.6 with VCT. However, Ken can create overlap that takes place down low which will give you that fake cam sound. Whay you will notice (I have drien one with that "ghost cam" idle as they call it), that after the car settles to idle there will be a very short delay as VCT on both cams corrects to generate overlap for that cammer sound.

    You probably already know this so I'm just yacking to hear myself yack. Don't mean to be sounding like I am trying to teach the teacher. No disrespect intended.

    I just spent $119 on Prep, sealer, texture, cleaner and paint.

    Nice! I think you'll really like how it turns out, I'll be waiting for the "after" pics.

    BTW I overthought on the 3V. While it has VCT it is a single cam so overlap will be in effect on those engines. They still have variable cam timing. It dose the same thing as the adjustable cam gears on an old school push rod engine that allows you to reposition cam to crank position giving you fine positioning aside from simply jumping a timing link and hoping that wasn't too much. the DOHC's give more versatility to the same concept. GT500's never had this technology btw in spite of their cam configuration. Sorry for the mistake on the 3V theory. I ran a custom grind Comp cam in my 2005. It was a mild mild that had a light cam sound that sounded best with LT's after I switched to them. Sorry to beat on. I believe in correcting my missed speaking when I realize it. Enjoy that beauty. I hope you'll bring it up and make some passes with the group in spite of Dickhead's proven dickness. Or at least let us know when you plan to run it at KK or TH if you decide to come up.

    FINALLY!! I drove to the DMV to get an inspection, (which I found out I didnt need) and then went and got my tags!

    Look close and you can see the officer, who just seconds before, walked behind my car and did not notice that I was rolling on slicks. I have DOTs coming in later today, but I wanted to make sure I had tags for tomorrow's Open House.


    Its so cool to see it anywhere besides in my garage! I still need an alignment, but its kinda close. (I hope)


    I did some Data logging for Ken, so hopefully he sends me a revision tune to where I can take it above 4500.

    Makes all the hard work worth it once you are able to get it out and start showing it off. Looks good!
