    Sad to learn of Donny Carlson passing. One of the BEST MARAUDER friends ANYONE could have. Rest in Peace, my friend...you are missed greatly by me, and others who knew you in the earliest of MARAUDER days. I hope ALL the mailbags are light as a feather where you are now.

    This is the most difficult post that I have ever made to this site. Son of Bluerauder's involvement with the Mercury Marauder goes back to March 2004 and he has been a major part of my involvement with the MM.Net Club and Membership. He attended many national, regional, and local meet with the CAM Group. R.I.P. Son and thanks for getting me involved with a car that has led to many friendships and fun times over the past 17 years. Love you, George !! Added to Post #2 of this thread commemorating members that we have lost over the years.

    Am I reading this correctly, just to be clear; is Son of Bluerauder your actual son?

    My condolences for the family of Son of Blue, 36 was WAY too young...

    It is with deep regret that I note the passing of one of the original members here at the MercuryMarauder.Net going back to the early days in 2002 ... He was member # 392 ...

    SergntMac (H.A. “Mac” McCarthy) >>>>> 17 June 2020 >>>>> https://www.ccgfuneralhome.com

    Chapman Cole and Gleason Funeral Home
    Mashpee, MA
    Obituary

    H.A. “Mac” McCarthy, 67, of East Falmouth, formerly of Chicago, passed away peacefully at home on June 17, 2020. He was the beloved son of the late Robert H. McCarthy.

    Mac served as a police officer for the City of Chicago and retired as a Sergeant in 2008 after 30 years of Service. He was one of the founding members and a side drummer for the Pipes and Drums of the Chicago Police Department. There was no greater privilege for Mac than to honor his fallen brothers and sisters in Blue and Red by performing or attending a funeral in uniform. He was also the first Inductee to the IACP/DuPont Kevlar Survivors Club after being gravely injured in the line of duty in 1983 and his vest saved his life. He was a highly decorated officer and received the police department’s highest honor of the Blue Star Award twice.

    His passions were his fast cars, including Mercury Marauders and Shelby GTs. He owned many. Storytelling, screenwriting, road trips and Civil War history were his passions as well.

    Mac will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Mac is survived by many friends which include his best friend Mary O’Keeffe, Bob Tischler, Rev. Keith Shuley CDR USN, Linda Abbe, Peter Winson, William and Angie Baron and family, Catherine O’Keeffe and Bob O’Keeffe and family.

    A funeral Mass will be held at Christ the King Church, 3 Job’s Fishing Rd. Mashpee on Friday June 26, 2020 at 10:00am. Burial will follow in St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Falmouth. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation www.cpdmemorial.org. For online guestbook and directions please visit www.ccgfuneralhome.com.

    Dyno Results in Chicagoland
    Waited two week with an appointment, but I finally went for my dyno test today, and went to the only place I could find in the Chicagoland area. There are more dynos around, yes. But, only two I could find, and both are really "out there" too, in location, availability, pricing and cooperation.

    This place has a new 'Mustang" 4X4 dyno, and one really helpful tech running it. Can do a lot more stuff than I expected and when the software offered me a hundred choices for my tests, I didn't explore all of them and ordered the defaults. So, some of my tests will need to be done again in the spring, but work for me until then. I'll try to get these reports scanned and posted in the photo library in the next few days.

    Where?
    DynaTech, Inc.
    7511 W. Cermak Road (inside mall, formerly Firestone)
    North Riverside, Illinois
    708.442.8951
    appointment necessary
    125.00 per hour
    open SEVEN days a week.
    www.DynaTechAuto.com

    Stats:
    125.00 bought five honest pulls in one hour. Worth it in my book, and actually gave me more Sunday afternoon entertainment per hour than my last Bears game, and at half the price.

    RWHP peaked at 319.9, 325.9 and 363.5. Wait now, I said "peaked".
    My car on this dyno with the pro driving, revealed "peaks" in RWHP and TQ at the shift points. Good, solid shifts that chirped the tires on the dyno, and produced instantaneous spurts of power, why I don't know. The reports I ordered show these peaks in the graphs and in report totals, but they don't mean squat in my book. By looking at the graphs carefully, I estimate my overall net RWHP to center in the area of 240 RWHP.

    Torque figures are likewise affected by my report selection, with peaks recorded at 1310.6, 1371.6 and 1336.6 ft-lbs, and in that order. Silly numbers I know, and I estimate my overall net TQ to center in the 420 ft-lbs range.

    One pull for a certified 120 mph check for driveline vibrations or anomalies. None observed by the pro, end of story. RWHP and TQ, peaks aside, this MM nested in the 240HP-420TQ neighborhood in that report as well.

    One pull for speedo certification, 40 MPH on the speedo is 38.40 mph. Good, nice to be a bit conservative here, and nice to see Reinhart's chip doing it's thing, for sure.

    Last pull, 0 to 60 time. Standing start to 60 MPH is 6.03. Works for me.

    I'm disappointed that I didn't better understand my choices in the software, there's a hundred ways to run this and I could have learned more had I been better prepared. Nonetheless, this is a good place to start, get me some numbers on how my Reinhart mods have improved stuff. Any of you who are really concerned with performance, get your MM to a dyno.

    My prediction is that by spring, I'll be considering intake and exhaust improvements, and I'll probably take Reinhart's advice very strongly. The pipes under this car did not appear as large as I expected them to be, looked maybe half the size of what we see at the tip. Has to be improvement here, cats back. Likewise, the cold air supply needs to be looked at too, also front to back. More air in and more air out, should be worth the expense in RW gains. Pulleys for sure, maybe next in the mod line-up price-wise.

    Oh, one more thing...My driveshaft is brushed sliver something, with polished ends, and color codes that match attached flanges. The "pro" acted as though that's the way it's supposed to be, matched balanced parts from the factory. No idea what it's made of, but magnets would not stick. Part number is 3W3Z-4602-AA, Marauder specific, not a GM shaft, or, so it says in the LM parts book.

    Well, gotta start loading these images, so y'all can get busy telling me where I'm wrong.

    Happy New Year, everyone, be safe.

    I was saddened to hear of Sgt. Mac's passing. I didn't know him really well, but I had dinner with him and Mary a few times at Marauder meets. He was a character to say the least. He will be missed by the Marauder community and by those who loved him. God Speed Sgt. Mac
