Hey guys,
a while ago I was on the Terminator Forum updating my progress on my New Edge 5.4 Conversion. Well it's finally done, so I wanted to post over here on the New Edge portion of the site and share with you guys some pictures and vids of it. I don't have any numbers yet because I just got the car running not too long ago, but I will here in a few weeks. Right now it only has a little base tune in it to get it running.

Here's an overview if anyone is curious.
The car has full weight for the most part, what I consider to be tasteful (which is my opinion) weight reduction is taking out a part and replacing it with a lighter part that's just as durable if not more (Like Replacing K members, A Arms, etc).

It's a 5.4 .020 over built by me at Voodoo Racing Innovations (VRI)
with Fully Forged Bottom End and ARP Hardware
Machine Work Done by Adam Dahl at West Coast Racing Engines
Ported/Polished 03 Cobra heads done by HBR Competition Engines here in Vegas.
Custom Ground Comp Cams to VRI Specs
Manley Valve Train with Titanium Retainers
ATI Super Damper
Melling Billet Oil Pump
Custom Sheet Metal Tunnel Ram Built by Virtual Works Racing
Custom One Off 5.4 Headers Built by BSR Fabrications
(He built me a set for my Termi as well)
Dynomax Mufflers
60LB Injectors
BAP
I'll be tuning it with the assistance of DDT or CC if they're interested :bigwink:
QA1 Tubular K member and arms
QA1 Coil Overs
Granatelli Upper Control Arms
Custom Lower Control Arms
4R70W built by Performance Transmission Las Vegas by Len
PTC Converter
FRPP Driveshaft
Solid Axle with Welded Axle Tubes and Mac Rear End Support
Superior 31 Spline Axles
31 Spline Eaton Posi Diff
Custom Intake System done by me.

And some other things I'm sure I forgot.

This car was originally a joint project between my friend Chris (Mad TV) and me. Due to the recession, Chris lost his job and was unable to complete it. Therefore, I took the responsibility of completing this car and I dedicate this to him.:tip: I also like to thank my friends Dana at Virtual Works Racing, and BSR Fabrications for their countless hours of devoting their fabrication skills on this car. I couldn't have done it without you guys. And Last but not least, I'd like to thank "NazMan" from our very own Modular Fords forum for his advice that he's gave to me over the course of the last year to help me complete this project as well.

I hope you guys enjoy the pics.

Anyways since my Termi is upgraded (again) I figure I will give some much needed attention to the naturally aspriated car, and needless to say I'm happy with the numbers. I don't know how much sense these numbers would really make to you guys since it's through a 4R70W, with an unlocked converter and slicks. The car will never make as much power as a stick car on the dyno but it still made a stout 433rwhp. What I personally think is impressive is how long it can hold the power out for. I was stunned by that.

Here's the dyno sheet and video. Hopefully I can figure out how to get both cars out to the track Sunday. The run was done at Dynojet (the place that makes the dynos) here in Las Vegas.

I finally got some track times for you guys!
I was able to borrow another trailer and get both the Cobras to the track and
I was also able to get my machinist Adam Dahl to drive the N/A car while I raced my Terminator.
Anyways,
the N/A car ran pretty good for first time out. I think there's more in it for sure. I didn't know what to expect of the car so the car wasn't exactly geared right for the combo plus the Converter might be a little tight. Plus we were still learning the car. Needless to say I'm happy with the car and we had alot of fun (we had a few fun/grudge races against my fabricator's VW Rabbit that I tuned and one of the homie's Bolt On/Cammed C6 Z06)
The car managed a 11.38 the first pass, we shifted higher and got the car to go a 11.28 the second pass. And we shifted it higher again (at 8200 rpm) and the car went [email protected] with a crappier 60' (car went 1.60's on the other passes, and high 1.6's on the final and best pass of the day).
In case you're wondering the car scaled in at 3400 lbs without the driver which is 280 lbs.
Here's a few videos and a pic from yesterday that you guys might enjoy.
