I've seen guys in 4x4's tear up the centerforce clutches too.. but also seen em run really well in a variety of cars. Dunno on that.. I cant bash em hard because I've not seen that many of them fail.

ok, whatever .. thats cool. What cam are you using? how many cams have you tried? have dyno results to prove your guesswork?? yeah I didn't think so, we've been over this before haven't we. I'm not going to argue with a guy still running a ranger cam that hasn't had anything else in there to actuall...

as a rule of thumb, turbo cars like milder cams with little overlap and mild events. This has been preached and preached and yet everyone still (including myself) goes with a bigger gnarly cam. I stepped back to a .400 lift 200* duration cam and was exponentially pleased with it vs the lumpy monster...

I just called and secured saturday night... which they claim was the only night available. The word at this point was that they do not have ANY rooms left in the hotel at all for friday night. I was advised to keep calling back to see if there were any cancelations that I could snap up. So, at this ...

Mine used to be a dd up until last July. I bought a little fuel efficient runabout to handle the daily mule jobs. I find now that mods are pretty much stress free and there isn't any rush to "get it done to drive to work" going on. A t5 swap you can pull off in a weekend.. but sure as hell not in on...

Cool.. what was the web link to the place that offered the bolt in mc conversion? .. That saves me a lot of fab work/time to be able to buy that part rather than build a rig like that from scratch. Hang on a bit and I'll have another run of 5-6 of the copiesof the Ford parts. Found a new-to-Xrattin...
