  1. Well there wasn't any calipers or micrometers involved in that flange design. At the time I wasn't concerned with it being that precise as what I was doing was more of a loose experiment (albeit an expensive one). I used an extra lower intake to take measurements not the actual head. The intake ports in the flange are not the correct size, there was work done to route them out to match the runners after the fact. I am trying to find pictures to help explain how it was done. The injectors holes will drilled out larger and bungs welded in a worked as well. I'll either find more pictures or take some to better explain it.
  2. This topic is way better than a PM! You need to keep updating it as you go, very cool. I still have the files, I will dig them out and send them to you as soon as I get a few minutes. I'll rename this topic too.
  3. Welcome to the site. I guess reflecting back now I am not sure what to think of the ported heads actually. Honestly I did them way too soon. I did not have other things done first to get good data. I had long tube headers, x-pipe, catback, CAI, throttle body, a not so great tune, 3.73 gears, driveshaft, LCAs and shocks/struts; but only had one day at the track with 4 runs on the car at that point. So I had the intake and exhaust mods for the heads but didn't have a good tune worked out, was having O2 sensor issues with the long tubes and traction issues. I should have had all that worked before doing the heads. They definitely flow more air, there is no question about that. I still wonder if cams would have unlocked the heads potential more. I can't recall what MPT set my shift points at any more. But I have a Circle D torque converter too. I would guess that a ported lower will give more gains than the upper because of the injector bumps in the lower.
  4. Used 3.7 motors on eBay with low miles seem to average around $1250, give or take a couple hundred bucks. The LKQ ones even come with 6 month warranties.
  5. I blew mine out after about 70 passes at the strip. That is when I put the Eaton in. If you are moving to Orlando then LaMotta is the place to go. http://www.lamottaperformance.com/
  6. What I'm saying here is I have never seen a tiger with a cleft palate. And honestly never want to see one again. Thanks Popeye, I can't un-see that!
  7. It is a lot more than just tuning.
  8. I usually put dynamat under the carpet / interior pieces not under the car. Never seen it done that way.
  9. Holy dynamat Batman!!! Should have towed it with the 64 GMC instead of the newer truck. Would have looked awesome.
  10. Now I'm wondering if my drag radials will fit on my Ford Flex?
  11. That is quite a funnel there.
  12. I don't understand why you keep mentioning the timing cover. It looks like you are talking about the O-ring on the water pump. I don't see where the timing cover is involved in this.
  13. It is the dual tips that makes the adjustable exhaust possible.
  14. I think you are near Orlando? I had LaMotta Performance do my driveshaft and gear swap. He does lots of Mustang work. Or call MPT to see who they recommend in the area. I am in the Tampa area and had my diff replaced locally.
