1995 Thunderbird LX Missing 4.6 MIssing Trans Red
Yup.On a 4V that’s actually true, any cam or LSA that’s producing lope on a 4V is just dumping hydrocarbons and compression. You want overlap and it’s lopey side effect on a 2V (any 2V, OHC, pushrod etc) so the exhaust draws the in air fuel charge through the small shrouded valve openings while both valves are open, that’s why longtube headers are desirable as they’ll increase scavenging and draw the most of the intake charge into the cylinder. On a 4V that’s a mostly moot point, as there is little to no cylinder shrouding with the two intake valves, the intake charge doesn’t have to overcome that restriction and consequently not many aftermarket cams for them produce much of lope unless they were degreed that way by the builder(and are likely leaving power on the table if it’s pronounced).
Ordered some black lug nuts. I'll get the wheels on soon as those arrive.Great colors and combo, can't wait to see them on the car.
I should repost the pics from when it was first done in 2020. Same shop did the work but a different painter sprayed it this time. The painter sealed the car this time in black. Whereas the last time the painter decided on his own to tint the sealer in a blue/green. The black sealer makes the car a touch more classy. I need to get moving on getting the new engine in. Lots to do now. Since the paint is all new I'm going to put the car on the lift and raise the car and leave the drive train down rather than messing with the engine hoist over the new paint.I said it before but damn I love that green! Just looks better and better each post
Ya know... That is a good spot. We got lucky a couple years ago and pulled all the seats from a Cougar. They had all been reupholstered< and were in great condition so we grabbed them. My son who drives the car is a big kid, so the wider shoulder area is good for him. Clearly you know a couple things about Cougars....Are those Cougar seats?
Hubs are standard Tbird 5-108. Those wheels I bought from Brad Storey in 2004. They were on the family Mark 8, which is waiting in line for repair. So we took the wheels and powder coated them bronze.The whole setup looks amazing 😍!
Were the hubs swapped for 5*114 or standard 5*108 for these wheels?
