Some seriuos looking headers, and cars 👍
Yes sir, he does some wicked work, When he did my A3 headers 20 years ago, they were a work of art. Now will be much easier, with the steering, and motor mounts.Can't wait. That engine in that stang just blows me away, when you see it in a picture, compared to in front of you. It would be pretty insane with that under hood of Cougar, be pretty hairy ride. I appreciate you commenting.

Have you thought about doing a video series about recreating a stock Cleveland head to the equivalent of a 1978 Glidden Pro Stock head (or similar)?

It would be cool to see exactly what steps were involved.
I am going to build two pro stock builds now with high ports. . Are you asking about making a video of cutting the exhaust port off, and the machine work involved with that process? If you have not seen this, may answer your questions.

You have the final outcome of what was done.

What I'm talking about is a series that shows the steps of converting this.

243170


Into this

243171


We know that it was done. How exactly was it done.

That's the question.

Doesn't seem like YT likes that idea.

Thank you, Not what I planned initially, but things change, you know how that goes. I bought a set of Hooker merge collectors, nothing fancy, I will try them and see how they fit. Thanks for watching Blake, chat soon....

Hey Tim, you post some cool videos! Thanks for being a good Buddy! This eye issue I have sux n after putting the Hopkins doctor that wanted to do surgery on it the following week last month to correct it....I put that off by scheduling my next appointment 3 months later after the Stick Shift National’s since he said 3-4 weeks to few months on the recovery. I’m starting to see my mistake with doing that since my left eye vision is really distorted from the scar tissue from the original surgery. With that said I loaded my junk in the trailer today after a ride up the street.....I know I haven’t driven anything quick in awhile but a built 351C 4V cc headed high compression engine in a Foxbody with a G Force tranny n aluminum Ram Flywheel n adjustable Ram clutch n QP Fab 9” with 5.14 pro gears gets your attention! Life is good my Friend! After that blast up the street I got a new stride in my step!!! Planning to hit the local track Sat. for their last TnT before my local Pro Stick class starts the following Sat at Waynesboro, Va. Hopefully everything will fall into place after missing last year but I have my doubts.... if the weather cooperates Sat. n things go ok with TnT I’ll report back....don’t wanna get my hopes up with the way things have been going. I think I recognized one of those UR-19 tunnel ram intakes! Lol

Tater no need to apologize. I hope it is just anatomical issue, Site is one of the worst things to deal with, once there a nerologic issue with vision treatment much more complicated. We will kep you in our prayers. I am glad you can see, and I hope that it all comes back into focus, no pun intended. I am glad that you were to get the ol Mustang done, I know it has been a long haul. It sounds fantastic, you how they have their unique sound, I can pick it out with my eyes closed. I hope you have some good runs, be safe. Thank you for the compliment, I also sub to your channel, great videos, will feature them on my channel liked videos. I hope all continues on schedule, really getting ansy, been way too long, but never be where I am, if it did work out this way. Keeping all racing alive, all bad street cars, this is going away, and I can see that, do my share to preserve it, and keep it fresh in the mind. Keep posting, and stay tuned......

Well, Mother Nature cancelled the local track TnT today so I guess it’s off to the first Pro Stick race at the end of the week. They’re having a TnT there the evening before the actual race so I’m thinking about going there a day early n trying that. The Wifey is all for it so looks like a go.....if Mother Nature cooperates! Forecast looks pretty bad at this time but it might change. Just don’t wanna tow 2 1/2 hrs one way to watch it rain.
