    I can definitely see myself getting in trouble with it. Haha. Even though the paint is perfect I plan on changing the yellow to a dark gunmetal to make the car a little more subtle. And provided they come off easy those window scoops will be getting removed.

    What's an "R" intake? This is the first ford I've ever owned. And I'm waiting on a full spec sheet from the guy that built it

    You can't tell from the picture but the manifold is a trickflow. And thanks I'm pretty excited for this thing to be in my driveway

    Trick flow "R" is their high rev intake that flows really well up top in the RPM range. It is indeed what you have. They work great for bigger cube motors and boosted set ups. Looks good !!!

    Oh ok that's legit. I've never been really involved in the go fast world but I've wanted to have a go fast car for a while. I plan on pulling the motor and cleaning up the engine bay and getting rid of the yellow in the bay as soon as possible and cleaning up the appearance of the motor. Form and Function make me happy haha

    Thanks for the warm welcome y'all. Here's some better pictures of the car, btw, provided the paint was done right under those window vents those will be coming off and listed for sale

    and I'll be changing out the cowl hood for something a little more "subtle" haha
