Either way, I would probably end up buying it, if the price is reasonable, and waiting to get it dyno tuned.

There is no shot of nitrous on this engine that is safe untuned, period. Just don't.

I'm definitely new to nitrous overall, I know a little, but not much at all. Got the idea when I decided I'm going to go the NA route with my engine. Ported Cobra Jet Manifold, ported heads, cams, etc.

Well, I've shot 100s of bottles through engines of many different types. So, I hope you'll heed the voice of experience here.

I will. I thought I had heard that a small shot was safe untuned, but yeah, that doesn't sound realistic.

It's a high compression engine with already pretty high specific output. Now, nitrous loves high compression engines but pump fuel is the biggest limiting factor here. The amazing computational power of the Copperhead ECU, is what saves the day here. This engine wouldn't even start up on an ECM from even as little as 5-10 years ago. Now, adding oxygen in an uncontrolled way in such a high stress environment is a recipe for making the motor into yard art.

Yeah, the old 4.6L 3v ECU can't even start this engine.

I should be placing an order for the RTR decklid soon. After I go to the DMV monday to retake the knowledge tests due to tickets and I'm 20, and then renew my license.

Well, just something I noticed today moving my car around in college... never noticed it before when no rain has happened. It was wet in the space under the car, and when I got done driving and parked again, I could hear drops sizzling after I got out. Any clue to what this could be? Oil or coolant leak? I have no idea. I would have gotten pictures, but my phone was low enough to where I couldn't take any. Eyeballing it, it looks like near the back if the engine bay, close to the firewall.

I'll get a picture of under the car when I can. It's something I've never noticed, so I am a little worried.

Was just something I never really noticed, would have unless I didn't park in a different spot and notice a wet spot where I had parked before

Money has been pretty tight lately, and with no luck finding a job, I haven't had much spending money. That being said, I finally ordered the RTR Decklid panel today. Shipping tomorrow.

Installing the decklid tomorrow, a little nervous about it, even though it shouldn't be that hard.

Oh, and happy new year everyone!

Decklid is on. Seems like it wasn't cut great, red from the trunk lid shows through on the bottom, and the sides barely cover the trunk lid. Doesn't bother me that much though.

32k, some slight stretching on the left bolster on the driver side from getting in and out, but otherwise they are holding up great.

Any idea what would make a tire tilt out when fully turned? I'd think it's camber or just needs an alignment, because unless my steering wheel turns all the way left or right, the tires stay vertical with no outside tilt.

That would be the caster I believe but regardless you just need an alignment

As I may be getting a job soon, the next 2 mods provided I do get hired are a UPR firewall catch can, and Ford Procal tune.

Hey mustangz how does your boss side exhaust sound with your RTR axle backs? I'm really considering getting the boss sides locally for $350. I'm tired of my MagnaFlow quads street being too quiet. I think the RTR are the same as quiet as the magnaflows.

Get them, and make sure you remove the exhaust baffles in them. It sounds great. Yes the RTR street spec is pretty much the exact same as the MagnaFlow street.

Got hired, 8.25 an hour, decent for an on campus student job. Dollar above the VA minimum. Started today, so now I'll actually have income for car mods and other stuff. First in the list, as previously mentioned, UPR catch can and a tune. Then suspension.

I'm back. Been really busy lately, just got hired at a new job, working 24 hours a week at 17 an hour. Found a shop to install the SHR louvers I have that have just been sitting around for a long time. Now it's just a matter of getting the time to do it.
