    Mah new build

    So I guess I'll start this. It should be noted that this is not a quick build, it will take some time and will be done right.

    Project name: C67v2

    The car:



    The engine: L26 w/ L67 heads

    Power adders:





    Merlin's C67 blower, X-P cam, heads have 105# valve springs and will be getting a P&P as well as the lower intake, and will be running a single belt 3.4 pulley.

    I will be modifying the blower to go to a tube setup and will be using a stock TB.

    I will be getting a L26 in the near future, putting it on a stand and tearing it down and doing a simple rebuild on it. New bearings and new gaskets. The head studs from my current engine will get moved over as well as the rocker arm bolts.

    I'm aiming to make this look as nice and clean as possible, no wires going everywhere or anything like that. I may go ahead and pick up another engine harness and cut and splice in wires to make everything look as factory as possible.

    Today I got the lower intake and s/c gasket surfaces all cleaned up and started cleaning the heads up. The heads have a bit of surface rust on them so I'm wire wheeling it all off. This week I'll be tearing them the rest of the way down and starting the P&P job on them and the lower intake.

    Finally out in the public. Although you never told me directly, getting random questions about blower setups gave it away lol

    Is the blower ported at all?

    I might have an extra set of rocker bolts laying around, other miscellaneous parts as well.

    I lied. I do that sometimes. Lol. Larry sold it to me for next to nothing, so I sold my n2o and that paid for this setup. Your cam and my heads will be up for sale as soon as this is done.

    I'm pretty stoked, can't wait to get it all together.

    I picked it up for a steal so no loss no gain. Better to someone that will do something with it rather than me keeping it all on a shelf. Once I get extra parts in I'll pass stuff along to you scott.

    That car looks like a perfect candidate for that setup too.

    I don't know of it being ported, it looks like it is untouched. And those rocker bolts may be appreciated. I can always sell the ones that are on my car currently, will still need the head studs, though.

    I hope I can get this thing going reliably. In my mind this blower is a bit of a FTV6 legend. lol

    There are a couple of FTV6 legends around. This one being one of the more elusive.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car, oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car, horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, and torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    What does the outlet look like? Ported means more efficient and a much louder whine

    I think the outlet was touched up on before Justin had the bend welded on. Let me find a pic.

    Found a few



    I had these saved on my computer.
