01/17/10 Well I kind of forgot about this page till today whan I got an Email obout a nomination. LOL Anyway heres some updates.... 2 years ago I traded this car for a 2002 Corvette speedway white with a red interior. I stripped this car down before making the deal and sold off a lot of the good stuff, after sitting on a used car car lot half way across the state it was finally sold. I've hear the 16 year old that bought it is afraid of it and wants to sell it, it has spent most of the last 2 years sitting with no nitrous or welds plus other parts I pulled off. Really kind of sad. The vette is cool and is running lows 12's should be into the 11's or better sone. On to the Mach (page 5), I stripped it to a bare chassis pulled evey bolt of it and have been working on it for the past 2 years. Its almost done and pretty much prefect and I dont think I'll ever drive it much. It now has a 408 stroker that made 545 hp and 498ftlbs on the dyno, I'll try to update with some pics sone if theres interest LOL
Wow its been 7 months since I updated, well we moved in to our new house, unfortunatily we only have dail-up and this site is not dail-up friendly. LOL Anyway the car is apart again, just finished changing k members. I installed a full UPR front kit with coilovers and bumpsteer kit. The engine is back at the machine shop getting more horsepower. I picked up a Fox Lake P51 intake and I'm going to sump the tank and go to a return style fuel system. Promotion Powertrain is building me a new 3650 that should be good to 700 hp. Last summer the car was in Race Pages and won the only car show I went to, that inspired me to paint the engine compartment and move as much of the wiring as I could to under the fenders. I'll try to get some new pics up soon. Thanks for looking!

This year I continue to make changes, I've removed the Roush splitter and added Weld Draglites, 15x3 front and 15x10 rear, along with Hoosier Quick Time Pro 28x14.50-15 rear tires. Right now I'm moving the battery to trunk and plan to clean up under the hood as well as remove some weight.
