Re: 32v in an 03 GT

They are a driveability improvement, not a performance improvement. They make more power and are quicker at the strip without them, but not having them makes for a gutless turd when tooting around on the street. 4.56 or 4.88 gears help tremendously with this issue.

Re: 32v in an 03 GT

Did you buy my old motor and trans (and harness) from Tony Swaim by any chance?

Re: 32v in an 03 GT

My homie did this swap back in like 05 and he just used the complete 03 electronics to control the Cobra engine. He just flashed the ECU to raise the rev limit (and obviously tune for more power). Now he used a 99 engine, so you would presumably need to convert to coil on plug using 99-04 valve cove...

The super early RT10s like that are really really really unrefined, like on the level of a mediocre kit car. Unless it's 50-60% of street value, I'd pass. Hard to sell and not particularly fun to drive.

Would love to get this for my son, but I know it would end up being a trip to the emergency room or worse:( That is too much bike for a 14 year old that has never rode one. GLWS That's too much bike for a 35 year old too, but I rode the shit out of one. In my humble opinion the 450EXC of that era i...

That shit is disposable now, unfortunately. When I was a mechanic in the early 90s we very seldom replaced radiators. We had a great local shop that could fix anything except the plastic tanks that were just starting to come on the scene back then. Nowadays when the shit goes bad you get on Ebay and...

You could be in one of those for a pretty small plus up over that Supra if you played your cards right.

My advice is to put enough money to buy a lambo in your savings account and then start saving for a lambo, but what the hell do I know.

I used It's Not Paint for the headers on my racecar about 10 years ago, but i've never run it so I can't testify to longevity. It seems like they coated the headers on Alan's turbo car back then too, and it held up ok for a dedicated race car. No idea how it would survive street use.
