      Current Theme Change   08/01/2017

      With the new update to 4.2 we have gained a lot of new features.  I will post more about those later.  With the change though came some problems with our current themes as the creator of those themes has not made the changes that allow us to take advantage of some of the new features.   I will try to clean up the default theme to make it more appealing for the time being.

  1. Ladd's Mystic Teminator Build

    Hey, guys! A serious elbow injury took me out of the game for awhile. I'm slowly coming back around. Just got my Airtech airbag stuff today, and waiting on a set of custom Speedhut gauges to be delivered. Also got a dash out of an 04 to put in Mysty. Couldn't take not actually having the right dash for my dual din, and 04 Cobra fuse box. I had to do some hacking to my 96 dash to make it all work, and it has bugged me for over a year.
  2. Ladd's Mystic Teminator Build

    Sorry for the slow updates; lots going on. Nothing wrong with the motor in Mysty now. I actually sold the motor that I used in the swap, which is pretty much paying for the new motor. I'm installing bigger cams, and if I'm going to pull the motor for this (I know it's not required, but easier) I figured I'd make some other upgrades as well. Better pistons, rods, oiling system, heads, timing chain guide dowels, and so on. I've never like using a motor that I didn't build. I'm also doing a complete wire tuck, ScootRodPanels, with a complete repaint of the engine bay, and entire car (another reason I'm pulling the motor). The swap motor had more miles on it than I liked, and just wanted to start with a zero mile rebuilt motor, setup the way I liked. I hope to get some more pics up soon. More goodies have arrived!

    Block is off to MPR today. Won't return until March!
  4. Ladd's Mystic Teminator Build

    So my build has changed again. I'm going to use a GT500 M122 blower setup. Cobra Engineering makes a lower adapter plate for this swap. Proven over 600 HP with the proper setup, which most of it I have. Cost me a grand between the blower, and kit. You can't beat that price, for the HP!
  5. Ladd's Mystic Teminator Build

    I talked to Gibtec today, 1300 is correct, but then you have to buy rods. I have no doubt best pistons, but probably overkill for my project. I can get Wiseco pistons, rods, wrist pins, and rings for 1300 on sale. I just found out Teksid block one is out. Been bored 20 over, and I can't remember if torque plates were used. This means for Tim, to hone, and use torque plates now, I'd have to get an odd ball 3.576 piston made or go 30 over. That's just too thin for me. I have a 49 thousand virgin Teksid block that I will use instead. Get it bored 20 over, and I can use the common 3.572 piston.

    I also looked at Gibtec as well. What did they price you for a set?
  7. Ladd's Mystic Teminator Build

    Just wanted to go ahead and get this started. I did a complete 04 Cobra swap, front to back on my 96 Mystic few months ago. I have a Teksid block laying around, and now have decided to rebuild it to Terminator specs. I will post pics, just wanted to get this build thread started. I rebuilt this Teksid 7 thousand miles ago, but felt like it need another go. I'm sending the block to Tim, over at MPR (Mustang Performance Racing) to work his magic. I'm going with Wiseco pistons, and rods. The Wiseco stuff has been proven to be stronger than Manley stuff, and come with 7/16 ARP rod bolts, instead of the 3/8 stuff Manley comes with (or so the Manley's in the Cobra). I'm using a brand new set of Ford Racing DC heads for this build, with Brian Tooley springs, and L&M GT500 Custom grind cams. Here is a few pics. I will get all of these in order as I do it. 1. The new Heads 2. Cobra Engineering 8mm Dowel Upgrade Kit 3. Teksid Bare and Ready To Ship
  8. Subframe-Side Exhaust

    Dan, my side exhaust is ran a tad different than yours. Most of my exhaust is in the rear, so maybe I wouldn't have to mod much on the subframes. I can do a lot of things, but haven't done a lot of welding, which I do plan to change in 2016. I'm going to get me a welder, and start practicing. Those look nice as well. I need some bad. Every since I did the 04 Cobra swap into Mysty, I keep breaking exhaust hangers, and such with the new HP, and torque.
  9. Subframe-Side Exhaust

    I was looking at this kit http://buystifflers.com/FITSystem1994-2004Mustang.aspx Has anyone installed these web style subframes with SVO side skirts, and side exhaust, or can it even be done?
  10. New Side Exhaust

    Not a lot of folks used the one chambers anyway, well not in my area. Definitely a nice sound coming out the side. Only thing that bugs me, is I can't hear that sweet Eaton whine from inside the car anymore. Thanks! Once my hood gets painted, I'm going to shoot a better video in wide-screen HD format.
  11. New Side Exhaust

    Yes it does! Lol
  12. New Side Exhaust

    So, I had new one chamber Flowmaster side exhaust installed last week on Mysty. Muffler man did a good job on making it all work. I made two flyby videos. Yes...I know the phone wasn't turned right. Yes....I know that one of the videos, the video is glitchy. Yes...I know on the second video, someone tried to call, and the video is vibrating, but you can still hear the car! Yes...I know my new hood hasn't been painted. Lol Cellphone sound doesn't do this video justice. https://youtu.be/hVF8utXAIZg https://youtu.be/NIYZNuzkIJI
  13. Side Shot

    Which ones did you order? It was about two weeks.
  14. Side Shot

    I agree, but I like this one as well. I live in the woods, and the leaves look killer in this pic
