well i always hated that huge, ugly, plastic, POS coolant tank that 4.6's have, so i swapped a 95 5.0 radiator, and used 2" angle aluminum across the top, that i sanded with 600 grit to give it the "brushed" look, and put in a 1500 cfm slim fan on instead of the huge heavy stock one :nice:

thanks everyone! engine bay detail is a huge deal to me



Looks awesome, as usual.

Ever considered going with COPs vs using the coil packs? That'd clean up even more stuff, IMO.

yes i actually have many times! the only thing that turns me off is that i will have to use, a 99+ harness, key, computer and gauge cluster, and i never like the digital 99+ clusters.

no hell you dont, mine has been swapped twice now. takes all kind of crap off the motor..

edit: didnt read the whole post lol.

I made my harness for $12 and it plugs right in, you can make it fit however you want. helps out a little, car ran smoother with the cop.

Looks very very clean!:nice:

damn that looks good :drool:

thanks you:D



That plenum spacer is huge!!! What purpose does it serve? Should replace it with a plate "kit". :D

yea its a 2", it adds plenuim and speed to the intake charge, it really helps out when running th edelbrock intake manifold, when i do put a kit on the car im just going to buy a 1.5in spacer and add the fogger plate to it:nice: im hoping for 10.90's on a 125 shot...

May I ask what heads you are running? You put out similar numbers to my car but about 30 less torque.

Damn man, that looks incredible. I've said it before and I'll say it again you have the cleanest nicest looking 2V engine bay I've ever seen.

BTW, I just ordered a pair of Nick's stage 2 NPI N/A cams. Would love to have ported heads, but it's just not in the budget right now. I can't wait! I also paid him to time the cams and include timing gears. Did you ever run any of Nick's other cams?
