The engine was built by Mark McKeown from MME Racing http://www.mmeracing.com
Dyno Pull - He only went to about 5300RPMs did feel the need to push it more for a street engine, but is kept making more and more power up to that range. He designed the engine for max power on the street. It has a nice smooth power band.

Default Paint Color

I put 4 choices on paint colors up on my CarsDomain Page with a new Poll. Whatever color is the highest ranked when I go to paint in Aug. I'll go with. I'd be happy with any of the 4! I think that's the problem. REMEMBER YOU CAN'T PAINT WITHOUT THE PAIN!

Finishing up the sheet metal, new rear quarters, creating new engine bay sheet metal, creating a mounting system for a custom Ron Davis Radiator; the default BBF Mustang one from then did not fit. Front and Rear coilover system installed. Fuel Tank Sump Installed. Everything finalized and seam welded.
