    I'll have to find the sheets. We weren't really focusing on the numbers on run. That run was after the pulleys and trans cooler so we were making sure it was running right. I do remember that it was a little low and we were looking at the curve and how it dropped off. I'm sure the intake manifold has to do with that. Will be on my list to change (I have a dorman w/ aluminum crossover :deeplist: ).

    Thanks! I greatly appreciate it!

    Welcome, nice lookin car man! Only suggestion may be to lower the front some more, looks like it's sitting up a little. I'm from Chicago, I love going back to visit when I can.

    I just went back and watched your exhaust video....that car sounds amazing! Magnapacks are hands down my favorite mustang exhaust for pushrods or mod motors! I'm really liking your car even more lol.

    Thanks! :thumbsup:

    Thanks! I do love the sound! I usually get compliments by people every time I bring it out about the exhaust.

    Awesome!!

    That's cool! I drive through Orland/Tinley quite often. Do you know if they are a part of CMC?

    Not that I know of. They're brothers. One has a orange '68 coronet, the other runs a '70 Buick GS. They run the Midas shops in Chicagoland.

    OHH You're kidding!! My Uncle is John Cozzi. He's the GM at Crestwood's Midas! I know all the guys there (Troy, Jim, etc)! Plus I know Matt over at the Bridgeview Midas.

    Awesome!!

    Yah same! I've went to CMC's opener but otherwise I haven't really gone anywhere else. Partially because I need new shocks/struts. My current Koni's are shot. I have the brand new rears but the fronts are on backorder until the first week in august so I've been limiting my driving until those are on.

    Yeah, I even missed the Opener. It's just been a busy year.
