    Eric is a really smart guy. He really enjoyed the build process and learning as much as he did from it all. It really is an amazing car and was a real bargain for what the owner paid for it in comparison to how much Eric had into it. But for some people, they enjoy the process more rather than finishing a car and just letting it sit. He's moved on to a new project and having fun with it. I'm sure at some point the speed bug will bite him again in the future but for now he's having fun with his Jeep. :)

    It worked perfectly for me too, as I was looking to get back into the hobby. I have a family, so there is no way I would want to put that kind of time into something, even *if* I had the skills to build it. Erik has been gracious enough to tune it for me and it has all come together. I have a dyno appointment tomorrow morning and promise to post up results. Thanks...

    Like lots of other trollers, I really enjoyed following this build and appreciate the time Eric took to document it all. I don't even own a Ford at the moment. It was just good reading especially for those of us that lack the talent to build it!

    If your ever around Sacramento, CA Eric, let me know, drinks are on me bud. :rockon:

    It's only seeing 13 psi. I wanted Erik to turn it up and shoot for 1000 RWHP but I guess it wasn't meant to be. :(

    I feel we could have been close with more boost.

    Glad to see it making good power as expected.

    He was having some issues with spark blowout. I think he said he was going to take it to the track as it is, then turn things up after he puts a BAS on it.

    I closed the gap and went to a TR6 and it cleaned up the graph for the most part. I have an alternator (Mechman) on order and am hoping that will cure my slight spark issue.

    Made 4 passes. 1st pass was just to try a launch technique that some of the fast IRS/Cobra guys told me about and then to try to run maybe 1/2 track. I launched and went a 1.75 - 60' and short-shifted and shifted easy and it stayed somewhat straight, so I stayed in it and 10.74 @ 129.52.

    Went back out for a 2nd run and decided to leave a little harder and to shift on the shift-light at 7,000 rpms. Went a 1.61 - 60' and then I missed 2nd, so I aborted the run.

    Third run I was forced into the left lane (ran the tower lane for the first two passes) and I had already seen a couple cars get loose in this lane. I didn't leave hard enough and went a 1.70 - 60' and the car was all over the place, I had to completely let off the gas in 3rd and got right back on and went 10.70 @ 132. The guys at the starting line said I was all over the place downtrack.

    Went back out for a 4th run and got in the tower lane. I left a little harder and went a 1.59 - 60' and shifted slow, but made sure to get it in gear and went 10.51 @ 133.

    So all-in-all I am quite pleased. The mph was not there, but its no mystery, I am sure around 3+mph was due to my shifting and the rest was likely due to my elevated compressed air temps, as I don't have a larger than stock reservoir and therefore didn't circulate any ice thru the system. I did have a bag of ice on the blower for about 10 minutes at one point, but figured it was pointless without doing anything else. I saw compressed air temps of 162* before each burnout, due to sitting in the staging lanes for 30-60 minutes before the passes. The other thing is I didn't push the car thru the lanes, I just started it each time. I am undecided this morning on whether to add an icebox and fully pursue the mph with the icing strategies/pushing the car thru the lanes or not. I am pleased with the e.t. and 60' for my first time out. This was on 26x11.5x15 ET Streets on 15x10 Racestars with the IRS and stock halfshafts.
