Shop fridge mods,and a new NPI project

It was just too plain in white,so I dressed it up a bit:

And the latest NPI project to soon be tearing up the roads:
The heads...Renegade's NPI's with PI ports
223cfm intake/178cfm exhaust

The shortblock...Modular Performance's Big-Bore
Diamond Forged flat-tops,Manley H-beams,etc..

Semi-assembled:

It goes into their car this weekend along with a trans that I built up for it, and a multi-disc PI converter that's had the clutches relined and a slight stall speed adjustment by Chris at Circle D :headbang:
This should be fun,and we might get it together in time to go to the track Saturday evening :diablo:

Ya know Johnny, I wish you'd quit buying such crap! I'm just sick of all the junk you and Kris are putting under hoods. Don't you know those Mustangs are gonna whoop up on you!

Another question, when Renegade does the PI ports on the NPIs, do they have to weld up under the mounting ledge at all or is there enough material there already? It seems it would be awfully thin if they just cut into it all.

This one isn't for me-it's for a currently nameless member here.
Ironic thing is..it's liable to put down more power than mine does.
When Jim does the PI ports-it's just the entry into the port-there's no need to weld it up there-it's just for a smooth transition.
He also welds up the water port so using a PI intake is idiot proof.

Awesome, well good luck to you this weekend. I would really like to know what you put down for HP/TQ numbers with that setup? I know that car is going to move.

That wouldn't be going in a familiar Red car, would it?
No-your old beast has already got a forged setup in it,and it went a [email protected] 112ish a few weeks back with a 3.27 open diff,and street tires.
This one is going in a black '97 model.

Looks like fun. Best of luck and keep us posted on any numbers you get out of it. (Track or dyno).

One of you two wanna confirm the address for the harness?
I sent it on the 23rd to the address you gave me...
It shouldn't have taken this long, but if it hasn't showed up by the end of this week 6/11 I'll either try and find a harness else where, or give you your money back.

(sorry not trying to jack your thread, but since it was brought up...)
