Damn.. So much for stealth :( Umm.. OK.. lets just call it 'Project 42'. As I told someone, the '42' has a significant meaning in one way or another.. I'll post various pics here in the next few days to give a few hints as to what all I'm doing.. just various items.

Its like this...

I never posted numbers or everything I have done due to the local lamers ( I know your probably reading this , ****-off if you are ) reading forums. They found the site we all love to dislike the owner of, they found my site.. they like to know what they're up against.

I've NEVER posted any numbers nor really whats going on outside of cosmetic stuff. Everyone knows I have a bottle but theres only a handful of folks whom have been in my truck with it on. I try and play it low at meets ( Except for that coward with the cobra in Centrallia.. I REALLY wanted some of him but that Pu$$y wanted none of me!!! )

I planned on finishing this thing by the end of the year... but plans/things change. When we feel were satisfied, we find yet another thing that needs to be modded/worked on. I was going to work on the exterrior then I found a new vailience and wanted to pull the fenderflares.. yadda yadda.. all this cosmetic stuff.. then I got my **** handed to me really bad by a sleeper ( a bloody neon! ) and decided to go under the hood again.

I took a page from the '4.0 Gods book of mean Shiznit' and ran it by a local guru whos built rigs for Billy Glidden and Pete ' Nitrous' Myenski ( both top 5 pro-5.0 racers ). The Guru said it was a GOOD idea and very solid ( IE: I won't go boom this time ) . Instead of hitting up the boneyards for more manifolds and putting bigger jets in the Nozzlet for the juice.. theres a more efficient method to all the madness.

I've taken a bunch of pics and will have more by the time all is said and done. I'm hoping to have Bakes and DK over this friday nite to finish things off. We were able to rip apart Denalis 5.0 and rebuild it in a total time of.. ( I wish we were in my garage instead of his ) .. call it 6 hrs? 8hrs max. This shouldn't take too long as its all planned out.

I hope to be making a movie with bd-Productions by next week.

I was thinking a 4.0 that is now a 4.2. Unless your saying a 4.2L from an f-150. I noticed an engine crane and stand in your pic.

Why would he put a 4.2 from an F-150 in it? Thats taking a step back, the 4.2 is a OHV motor...

The 4.2L has alot more ***** then a 4.0L, its just a little but shy of a 4.6L I would rather have the 4.2L any day.

Are you smoking something? Your telling me a 4.2 OHV V6 that makes 202hp and 252 lb/ft is just shy of a 4.6L V8 making 231hp and nearly 300 lb/ft with a much fatter torque and powerband? The 4L SOHC motor is far superior to the 4.2 OHV...

Yeah, the F150 4.2L was my first thought, but thats hardly a step up.
