    Whats up all. I know I haven't been around much lately because alot of things have changed for me the last couple months. I sold the stang about 2 months ago to help a friend out. He needed a kidney and if he didn't get one would not have much longer to live. He had to satisfy a 5k insurance deductible before they would operate on him and he didn't have the money. I sold my car luckly for 10k because the buyer knows how much work I had into the car and how far it came along since i've owned it. I haven't really given much thought into what I want to buy next. I would love to own a terminator but there still going for well over 29k in my area and im not down to just pay that just yet. So I have been thinking about other things I might end up buying such as an LS1 F-body, maybe anothor pushrod 5.0, and acouple other things that ran through my mine. I have owned 4 mustangs my whole life and 2 of them were beast. I just don't know what I want anymore. The thought of building anothor 2v honestly doesn't appeal to me anymore. I had about 4k into my 2v for a whomping 278.4 rwhp. F-bodies with full exhaust put 320-350 to the ground and that cost maybe a grand for a great set up. I have been weighing my options and I know how to build a pushrod too the max from my previous 2. I just don't know anymore. The thought of an 96-98 cobra has crossed my mind but even then I would have to mod the hell out of it to get what I want. What should I do!!! Help me out here guys.

    You know what im gonna say man, 5.0 haha. I know you hate it when I say it. It would be cool to get a fox or something and throw some HCI on it or a little boost. Not many of the guys we roll with have the juice maybe you should build up a juice monster....

    Making them fast is all good. I have built 4 of them 3 being pushrods with one of them getting stolen. Fact is im not sure I know if I do a pushrod again it's going to be a mininum of an HCI swap probably with a stroker kit. Im not a fan of a bored 302-306. I have always thought the 5 oh's make more power with strokers. Not sure I will take some time to think about it. More and more I think of it though the more I just get more confused.

    never seen an h/c/i ls1 engine put 400 to the ground.

    the LS6 head/cam combo does more than that and that's the mildest h/c you do to those cars. I mean there are stock headed/ cam-only cars making at least that if not more. just thought i'd put in the .02 cents.
