that one Procharged build thread *picture heavy updates*

updates will be throughout the comments. feel free to ask any questions or leave some constructive criticism/ opinions

ok so, coming from the evo game, you can say purchasing this car is about a 180 degree turn around from what im accustomed.

this is my 1st ford, 1st v8, 1st supercharged car and i LOVE it. bought it not too long ago and spun a rod bearing (#1) so here is my build-

here she is-







one day i turned her on and i hear *CLANKCLWSEJFGHHBNCWO" aftermath-



so out comes the engine!





pretty expensive way to hold the converter in -



so i started to take the engine apart, looks like its ran pig rich for a bit of its life, so much build up everywhere...



much more to come

while waiting on the machine shop i did some cleaning and setting up/ ordering parts at home, decided to strip down and paint the valve covers/ coil covers (what a mess! ), the picture makes it look a little dark but its ford blue-








went with wrinkle black for the valve covers, i really like the contrast!

that one Procharged build thread *picture heavy updates*

Looking good! What Procharger are you running?

My F1-A sucked it's own impeller cone in last fall and my will to want to fix or spend money on has simply plummeted.. So imagine a 700 HP toy transformed into a low compression probably 225 hp killjoy and that's where I'm currently at! Still looks and sounds like it's got game, but all pose, no go.. This year at least.

Really cool to have an import guy get hooked. These cars all came factory with some kind of ****ed up addiction that's like crack built in option. And it seems to be easily inhaled to however is close to you as well so warn your friends. Oh, and I'm not kidding..

Good luck!

ok so, a number of parts have come in

of course the manley rods and pistons (17cc dish)
arp head studs/ main studs/ side bolts
cobra kellog crank
3.4" pulley for the D1sc (going from a 3.8)
IW 10% OD crank dampener

(doing the math, i made 10-11psi with the 3.8 pulley going to 3.4"should gain me ~4psi, then the od crank should net me about 3-4 more psi, so im guessing ill be around 18-19psi )

dual improved walbro ford gt pumps
13-15 shelby gt 500 injectors
modded fpdm
snow performance stage 2 meth kit
on3 coolant crossover delete
sfi certified flex plate
egr delete plate
new oil pump gears
new oil pressure and boost gauges (didnt like the old ones)
cometic head gaskets
and a bunch of misc stuff. plugs, oil, thermostat, ect....

thinking about getting a thump racing tensioner to eliminate any more doubt in my head about belt slip.

also polished up the procharger! AMERICA!!!!!



I feel like i just had a new born... i just dont know what to name it...

painted the kooks headers black





got the block and heads back, started gapping the piston rings gotta love file to fit!.....



short block MOSTLY assembled, i accidentally broke a 2nd compression ring so i had to call total seal to send me another one, ring was only 6 bucks but shipping and handling was like 20 ****in dollars! would have been cheaper to mail them a flat rate box IN a flat rate box so they could mail the ring to me. lol.



(havent painted the block yet in this picture so dont mind the nasty aluminum, its all shiny now)





i also ordered a canton windage tray since i realized a little toolate that i gotthe "non windage tray" main studs. so this new one mounts between the oil pan and the block instead of mounted to the main caps. anyways, so i decided ill throw the head on the side that actually has 4 cans in it, so as of now this is how she sits. coming together though!

ok so, the piston ring finally came in, time to hustle, i gather everything for the last piston, file doen the ring, gapped perfect, assemble the piston, go to take off the rod caps,

ONE OF THE ROD BOLT WAS CROSS THREADED OR OVER TORQUED FROM FACTORY
at this point im pretty upset at manley for this poor quality control, but it is what it is







i called manely about it right away, and without hesitation or queestions they got the big end and little end measurements from me and got another rod on the way, plus a free shirt so im not too upset anymore, plus there is PLENTY more to do even though im at a stand still with the motor...

i know! i can change my rear end gears (going from 4.30s to 3.73s) why? becuase ~600 hp and 4.30 gears is stupid. your leg would fall off every race from pedaling so much. plus thisis my daily, and im tired of cruising at 3k plus rpm at 70-80 mph. i gotta save gas somehow!
