    Nothing



    It slid on, didn't even cut any off. (From what I recall)



    Update:

    Car runs and drives, is tuned for 8-12PSI. Big steam.
    It's got a blown head gasket now, which is promptly blamed on my faulty torque wrench. But it should be fixed soon enough. I don't know if I'll drive it much this year, I'm barely home and the car still needs a good bit of work and lots of money before I want to show it off. Adam @ Pops Racing did the tuning. I towed the car out to his house in Rochester NY this past weekend. Stayed with the Ryan Snyder family which was quite the pleasant experience.


    Me "So do you think it's at least a 12 second car?"

    Adam "12 seconds? More like 10-11 second"

    Me "Perfect, so it should at least do burnouts"

    Adam "Uh.. Yeah.."
    Adam is the man!

    Where's the pics of the coolant fiasco?
    By the way, the donut tracks were weak. You needed to go around a few more times.

    Too bad it only did 2 donuts before exploding.

    Hot Rod project's can go to hell in a hand basket and you pour money into the project and it never ends.

    I have had 15 years of experience with hot rod projects and I know of the heartbreak of an engine crapping the road and yes you pour money to get the car running.

    Here's an update. He put another set of head gaskets on it. Cracked a piston and chooched a bunch of smoke lol.
    He pulled the engine out and put a 5.0 coyote engine in it (it may or may not be supercharged lol).
    I bought the 351 engine, and intakes, and currently having it rebuilt for my coupe.
    Brown_Muscle got the heads and is running them on his 82 LTD-S.

    Yeah what he said. Also it has the manual trans that comes with new 5.0s. I rode in it. It’s fast, and best of all for Logan it does perfect doughnuts and burnouts. Oh and I think he blew up the rear and put some crazy gear ratio in it too

    LMAO, I'd upvote your comment if I could sir. I'm not personally a fan of the Coyote.
