my buildup project........20% complete

i guess i'll start this thread and post newer mods as i install them........so far, this is what i need to complete the project


- built 4.2 shortblock w/ forged rods/pistons
- gt 8.8
- built auto tranny (just gonna rebuild mine)
- dual exhaust (all this power needs to exhale )
- ported/polished upper intake


- maybe a 150-200 shot after its all said and done, if i want more power.





tomorrow or friday, the true dual exhaust goes in.......i'll post pics once the exhaust is on and maybe a vid if i can get my hands on a camera with audio ***cough*** Rob ***cough***

Re: my buildup project........20% complete

You're getting true dual? When did this happen? Did you work that deal with cody or something?

Who is installing it? How much are they charging? I have an empty carport

I was refering to the deal of you painting the shop and him giving you a killer deal.

None the less...cool.

My carport comment was in reference to if you wanted to install it over here.

Or the fact that he got off it before he got to the camera each time. lol I never got a direct on shot or pass by shot...all sound was from the front except the first vid but that was only a split second before he got to the stop sign.

He is coming over tonight to do some fog light stuff and a few of us will be going for some pics or something. We might could get some better "from behind like he likes it" videos if we can keep my exhaust out of the sound spectrum.

Re: my buildup project........20% complete

tips pointed up look much better. sorry... when they are even they look like they are pointed down and that just looks odd. It doesnt matter on the 99 up gts and cobras as they have cut outs so the flow of the bumper doesnt really mess with them visually. Look at the 79 up cars, they angle up a bit to make them look normal, not pointed down. Thats why they did it.

What is up with ppl putting fog lights in the middle of their bumpers? I don't understand, they just look so weird. But whatever

it doesnt fit in the stock location, even with cutting............Rob and i looked at that for about an hour. the only way it would have fit would have made it stick out the front bumper about 2 inches, which would have made it ghetto looking. this way, it mounts perfectly, fits flush, and looks good IMO..........


i think it looks good and i am not about to spend twice as much as i did on these just to buy stock gt fogs and cut my foglight grills out and mount them like that

Ha, just looks weird IMO, but whatever floats your boat man, it's your car. As long as it doesn't look goofy like a guy here in town has his done, with wires hanging everywhere.

We spent a half hour alone looking for the best way to route the wires so the would be hidden. They are zip tied inside the bottom lip of the bumper...so they should never show.

As for the placement. There was no way to mount them in the GT location. We looked at that and there was just no way to make it work because of a lack of bumper material to attach to. They turned out pretty good and even.
