    20 years ago…

    The world seems to be falling apart in front of our eyes. With the current administration making decisions that go from bad to worse; and the country being divided to the extreme of polar opposites. Even with everything going on in the world today, today marks the 20 anniversary of what happened...

    The world just seems less bright now.

    This will be a long post, and I’m sorry but I skip around a lot. Sorry if this is the wrong forum, mods move it to the right one if necessary. I lost the greatest man I have ever known in my life, my grandfather. It’s been 4 weeks since his passing and I’ve only been able to tell a few about...

    I will leave only a little info from the video, as it is worth watching even if it’s 35 minutes. Gordon Murray was the lead engineer for the McLaren F1 and he has designed and built his own car. The rest of the info is in the video. It is truly a masterpiece. Oh and one last thing, it’s a stick...

    Wanting to build knowledge on modern Mopars

    Creating this thread for 2 reasons. 1. Make a long story short my father’s best friend was hit on his motorcycle in April. He’s mostly recovered from it about 6 months ahead of schedule. He can’t get in his truck without issues now. So, the task with finding him a replacement was given to me...

    C6Z06 with a 5.3L Flat Plane Crank LS.

    This popped up on my google page. I think it’s really interesting and cool to say the least. Definitely a unique sound but I think I’d stick with the LS7. Article: A Ferrari V8 sounds like a Ferrari V8, largely, because it has a flat-plane crankshaft setup. No other American V8 muscle cars...

    Any sword enthusiasts on here? Wanting estimated value of a Katana.

    As the title says I’m looking for an estimated value of a Katana. A friend of mine had a death in the family and he acquired a few swords. It’s a replica but probably on the cheaper side of replicas. From what I’m told the deceased enjoyed reenactments. I don’t think it’s worth much but I’d like...

    As title says I’m interested in hearing how to make this work. After studying some photos of the Lightning engine bay, I’ve come up with 2 possible solutions.

    Unknown 302 converted to Boss 302 specs.

    Asking for a friend. I know the basics that a boss 302 is basically a 302 shortblock with 351 parts added to it. (If that’s incorrect I’d like to know) So is there a kit that supplies basically everything you need for the conversion to work? Pricing it together is fine, but details on he parts...

    WTB: Mach 1 forged 8 bolt crank.

    As the title says I need a stock 8 bolt crank for my car. My machine shop has called almost all his sources for a crank and I’ve called many many many speed shops @Zemedici (sorry for being impatient Josh) and Mustang salvage yards. All to no avail. There’s several Mach 1’s at a salvage yard...
