Nice, im looking to get the same intake but in a satin finish so let me know what numbers u put down ima be similar but with a stock cam and didnt know if this intake hurt or helped, ppl claim its better then stock then others say its worst without porting and it gets heatsoak bad but i wanted a real opinion from somone with a blower,'cuz it looks identical to the typhoon intake and the 3 peice is cool cuz u can custom port it and all

I'm so done. Dyno was yesterday and found out the engine builders used a 22cc dished piston for a 5.1 stroker but used stock size 4.6 rods. The piston didn't even get close to the top of the cylinder at top of stroke so compression was ****. Made absolutely no power.

Taking it all apart again. I'm getting a lawyer. I am over this ****.

What's a lawyer going to do? Anytime you get something done by a shop they make you sign saying they are not liable

If they put different parts in that was not listed on the parts build list, I would imagine a lawyer could help him get it rebuilt to the spec they agreed on.

A lawyer will be prohibitively expensive. If you have evidence that they installed different parts than you requested, file a small claims case against them if you can't work out an equitable solution to this mess.

Goddamnit!!!

I'm sorry that this happened to you Cole.

This engine build has been a complete cluster f#ck. If it is just the pistons, I'd try to get that shop to pay for all of the parts and labor to replace them, including the balancing, and find a reputable engine builder to assemble it. This really isn't rocket science and I'm sure that you could probably do the assembly yourself. I know that even a novice engine builder couldn't have done any worse than those inept fools that you paid to build that engine!

That's ridiculous. We're they even suppose to be domed? A flat top 22cc on a normal 4.6 would yield about 9:1. I don't get how they have screwed this up twice.

I'm thinking about selling the car as is with all the extra parts and new parts thrown in. It's driveable just not for long trips. I feel that whoever buys and has time to sell the extra **** could probably gain a couple thousand back.

Wonder how this will work out.

Why not just keep it and take it off insurance and keep it in a garage for a year or two? You spent how much time on this with your dad? That paint is killer. If it were me I'd buy a beater and throw a couple hundred bucks to a grand into the stang every year until you got it where you want ita year to get your perfect car. If not I totally understand and you could buy a used cobra, Mach, or newer GT and be happy to have that V8 roar again.

I listed it for sale but am not dying to sell it so if I don't get what I ask for it then I just won't sell it. Who knows what will happen. We are still trying to go after the shop for money.
