Not to my knowledge. When he took me out in it we went about 1/2 mile he was up to 80 in no time. That truck only reads 85, but I would say we were going faster than that.

The 1986 Thunderbird didn't come with a inter cooler setup. He is working on getting his heater hooked back up before it gets to cold

Thanks for digging my ride, you guys!!!


I haven't taken it to a track because I haven't pushed it hard yet because the motor went through a COMPLETE rebuild with cylinder hone, block check, head leveled, and valve seats installed (good thing too, all exhaust seats were cracked and one was cracked all the way to the water jacket.) I want to make sure all the rings and bearings are plenty broken in before I start tearing ashpalt up on the track. I don't even know where a good track is to take it to.

I also plan on getting a performance clutch. When I took STL for a ride, I noticed that the clutch had slipped a bit right after each shift and I also found out that my motor mounts are nearly wore out. I'm getting all three of those ordered in soon.

I picked up a heater box from my parents house. I couldn't find a non-a/c box, so I'm going to take an a/c equipped box and cut and reform it.


I'll get an intercooler after a while. This thing ****s and gets well enough now. I need to save up some money because this so far has cost me just over $1400 and I'm kinda broke from it all (not broke as f*ck, but now I have to pay off the credit card)


Mykhael (with the hippie parents ;-), you may have thought it was fast, but I was only lightly rolling the throttle. I can't wait until I've tweaked it some more for boost, clutch, and limited slip!!!

Oh, and I'll send him a few more pics this week so he can have better ones posted up for this thread.
