Also seeing pics of that 98 (first page) is really really making me regret selling that blue 98 I had... kind of dunno what I was thinking looking back on that. Cobra front, S281 wing, Saleen skirts, choice of hood and choice of wheels and they are gorgeous. Doesn't take very much...

I guess the good news is the NPI cars are so looked down on by ppl who have 0 clue how to work on these cars that they are DIRT cheap.

S281 is definitely the best looking one IMO. You can also go with the T1 wing if you want to be different, Tiger Racing still makes them.

I still have to get clutch/flywheel. K member and fuel system. Luckily my uncles shop just became a dealer for fore innovations so I will be going that route. That dealer pricing is nice

I'm back

Build is moving slowly. Just dropped heads off at the machine shop with the turbo manifolds. Port match/ full worked heads all being done. Moving slowly like I said. All the side jobs are taking up its time.

Taking delivery of this for a customer. Motor/trans/interior/wiring/ brakes all being done. Bumpers all that stuff

What you can't run PP'd heads with a KB?

Watch out for the port #5 issue.

I could use a nice, low mileage set of Manley rods for the Prius killer that I'm building Scotty. If you ever come across any others.

Saw a few other sets of rods/pistons for a similar price. Lot of ppl seem to just get the cobra stuff or used stuff secondhand and then just throw it into a stock engine/crank without even balancing it. Bet they run forever like that too lol.

Waiting on my pistons to get here. Then I have to order a new block/rods and crank.

Hopefully once the wife and I get back from vacation in February i can get started on it again.
One day it will get done. I have more crap laying around to go on it, then I know what to do with. 1 time build though, all at once. Pull it in making 200 ish to tires. Leave making 600-650 ish.
But yes my only free days are Sundays and those have been dedicated to lift kits lately.

Finnaly got the axles in for the narrowed 8.8 on the f100. So it's on its own suspension now. The customer is loading it up on a trailer Wednesday to head to the exhaust shop. Then hopefully the driveshaft will be back by Friday.

I guess that after you get it running good and tuned, it's off to the paint shop... Have you asked the owner what color that it's going to be?

Its staying the color it is. Hopefully it will be back tomorrow. Then Sunday I will wire up the TPS and speed sensor for trans, and start street tuning. I also have a body lift to do Sunday, so we will see

Very nice. Will definitely be cool as hell to see it done. Looks like you got a pretty good side hustle going on. Or is that your main job?

I was just kidding. It looks like someone did a fair amount of work already.

I asked that question to a matte black Porsche GT owner and he laughed. He said that it was surprising how many people asked that question in earnest...

Got a cam install going in this. Going to call and order cam Tuesday as I'm sure TSP or BTR will be closed tomorrow.

Either going with the TSP stage 2 NA cam or the BTR stage 2 NA cam.
