Mine is no rocket, but it's fun. People say it sounds like the Bullitt car (yes, I know the Bullitt was a BB). Mine is a 289 .030 over with roller rockers, headers, and flowmasters. http://www.packlighter.com/BKrd/car.wma
I know, I tend to disappear for long periods of time. I got the diesel bug so I've been feeding that addiction lately. I'll get some more vids made this summer when I get the motor back together, may even get a dyno run.
Some sick sounding cars in here, gonna short out my keyboard drooling on it.
Thanks for this. I own a 66 coup with Dynomax 17731 mufflers which are still very new looking. The car needs an H pipe. The rear pipes are about 1.75 inch which are new. Was thinking of putting a brand new system in but now thinking of just installing an H pipe as one of the single pipes has a leak at the manifold ( does not line up properly). Also the rear hangers are attached to the floor not the frame rails or does that matter? I don't mind the sound just would be quieter without the leak.
Engine is estimated in the 530hp range at the crank
1 3/4" Hooker Super Comp headers (3" collector)
3" Pypes x-pipe
3" exhaust back to Hooker Max Flow mufflers
Exhaust dumped before rear axle
Here's a few clips of my '67 fastback with homebuilt 347.
11:1 compression, small custom hydraulic roller cam (220/230ish with .570 lift), Canfield cylinder heads, out of the box Holley 770cfm Street Avenger carburetor, Hooker Cometition 1 5/8 headers and Magnaflow 2,5" dual exhausts with X-pipe.
The car is a little loud for my taste, especially at WOT.

i am not new to the classics just been away for over 20 years. I am picking up my car next week and is almost stock other than front disc brakes. What are the mods I should focus on with a limited starting budget.
1. A/C - a must in Florida
4. or other items I should look at?
Thought I’d share a simple upgrade to LEDs.
Makes a big difference as you can see from the left taillight (LED) vs the right taillight (bulbs).
Seems to have also solved my lighting issue as well with my internal lights and side lights flickering on and off when I have my foot on the brake...
So I thought I’d have a crack at making my own sway bar end links using rod ends. The stock style link with bolts and the rubber bushings leaves quite a bit of wiggle room, and not in a good way. My front end alignment has a significant amount of caster and that tends to make the sway bar to...
Lots of progress getting my 65 up and running again. Just finished rebuilding my carb, installed a new fuel tank, moving the battery, reinstalling my roll bar and finished setting up new gauges. Fordstrokers 363 long block is shipping out next week. Most of the work left will wait until the...
