Ill give them a look, appreciate the info

Got the rear finished up today, took a little longer than i planned (self inflicted issues...) but i am really happy with the results. If i can get home at a decent time tomorrow i plan to get it on stands and leveled to start the front  ;D ;D

Hope to have pictures of the progress up this week   👍👍

Well, finally got a start on upgrading suspension today, started on the year, with the new front end i  decided to update the rear to 3x3's and 930's. My plan was to have that done today so i could cut off the front end tomorrow. Unfortunately I didnt make it as far as i hoped to today . I am really hoping to get this wrapped up tomorrow so i can start on the front. My tubing will be ready to pick up monday so i am ready to get this project under motion 👍

So what type of tubing bender are all you gents using?

sounds like a very affordable set up. For what i have in my Qutfront 2.5 Subura motor. I could have went this way and bought a Mendeola and motor. lol lol  Thanks for the update.

sounds like a great engine. stock Numbers 0f 350 hp @ 6,000 rpm and 350 lb-ft @ 3,200 rpm. sound like it would be a reliable motor at that. Its going to be fun keeping the front end on the Ground.  Just a ball park Guess. what was the Cost of motor/ adapter and Ford Power system??

no dyno sheet to back this up but many many dyno posts on turbo fod forum that my 2.3 doesnt make peak tq until about 4200 or 4400. we were able to see that reflected in the data log back in the beginning but dont remember for sure. it followed suit with the posts on the forum. if that true then the eco 2.3 is making peak tq 1000 rpm sooner ......thats huge in my book. i hope aprilfools makes a trip to ls so i can see this run in person!

I will see if i can do some data logging and share this to see what it shows, i am very curious as well.

The family and i are definitely wanting to do a trip to another dune, so i am hoping we can make this happen, although i am not sure when we could with all we having going on, maybe next summer? But we definitely would like to do this.
