Racing covers, thumper cams, headders installed.


Recommended Posts

Finally got around to installing the Shelby racing cam covers, Comp Mutha thumper cams and Ford Racing headders. So far eveything is fine. I'm problay going to have to get another tune, it seems a little fat to me. Click the picture directly below to hear the cams.

Im runing the Mac MMS mufflers. They are super droney at steady speed. I bought them from another TS member. I'l be swapping them out as soon as I recover from this finianical expense.

Since I've been buying your rejects already, :hysterical: , put me on the list for interested in you mufflers. The moroso spiral flows sounded horrible with my new motor. I have the Pypes open tubes on there right now and don't like them either, way too much. I'd be interested in the Mac's you have.

Sounds awesome. Did you do the cam and header install on your own?

 

And, with the intake manifold cover with the Shelby strut bar, is it rubbing the strut bar? I've had to space my Shelby strut bar to clear the same cover.

When I swap them out I'll let you know. :salute:

I had some help from a friend of mine who knew way more that I did. I was pretty much labor, he was the brains. The strut bar just barly rubs that intake cover.

 

Are those shorty or long tube headers? Sounds exceptional, and the license plate is exceptional also. God Bless Texas!!!

 

 

They are Ford Racing cermic coated shorties. I know it wasnt the best choice but they were within my budget. Thanks for the license plate complement.

How does your friend feel about a road trip to Fort Worth?

 

 

Kind of doubt it, I had to pretty much beg to get this done, sorry.

 

Those sound as good or better than the FRPP Hot Rod cams. Any loss of low end torque? Have you had this set up dynoed? Numbers?

 

 

Everyone said I'd lose low end, but I'm not feeling it. If feels like a beast to me. Not dyno yet, like I said the tune dosent seem right. When I get that done I'll post the numbers here.

Sounds fantastic! How's the driveability? Any problems with normal, around town traffic type driving?

 

Love how your engine bay looks, I have the same intake cover on mine, with no rubbing problems either.

 

 

Its a little buckey at lower speed, but I've learned quickly how to manage it with the gears and throttle. Theres now way I'd go back to stock. Way too much fun.

Sounds good and looks good too. Is that a RPI design CF plenum cover.

 

 

Thanks. Yes it is. I had it repainted not long after I got it. The quality was just not there for me.

Thanks for letting me know about the quality. I just had some parts hydro dip CF so if I don't like the quality or it dose not closely match my existing parts I will get it hydro dip. I my also give them a call to see if I can just purchase a unfinished cover.

Check with Team Shelby member Brian Pancoast ( blkgt500ca). He painted mine after RPI. He a did a great job. If you need a phone number or email address shoot me an email.
