I just got my car fired up again, and it is running like it should. It is not knocking and carrying on like it was before. It must have been one of the tensioners or possibly the cam gear that was not as tite as it should have been. While it was down, i modified my intake (it is definately not a cork anymore) added a Mcleod twin disk clutch, and aluminum flywheel. I also removed the SHM regrinds and went back to stock 99 Cobra cams. I still have a few more things to do and then I can start driving the car again to get some miles on the clutch. I hope to be back at JMS to get a tune sometime in the near future!

Chad,

Great to see the beast is running again. I have to ask though, why did you take out the blower cams? What all did you do to the intake?

I just got my ported 99 shortrunner from Boss330 today:D I can't wait to put my car back together!!

Mine is done alot like the one Al did, but somewhat different too... It may or may not work well, we will just have to see.

I took the SHM cams out because I think they are gay :p j/k
I think the stock cams will make plenty of power and takes away another variable of things that could possibly go wrong with your engine.

LOL I got to hear it!!!! My cell phone rings today..its chad..."Brett listen to this" he fires it up!!! HAHAHAHA..it sounded awesome!!! CONGRATS MAN!!! The other reason he took out the cams is because SHM sucks diseased horse balls.

Dont get me wrong, I don't like SHM any more than you guys. I just figured a blower cam would help you take more advantage of your combination.

Oh and that is hilarious about calling people and cranking it up after you get it back together. I did that to about 10 of my friends last time we put mine back together.

Later,
Ashley

Congrats on getting the beast back together Chad. Any chance of your being in Columbus for the Mod Motor Shootout? I sure would like to see your car in person. Better watch out for that Tommy L guy, sounds like he's calling you out, LOL. I've heard from a reliable source that he's packing some pretty big heat himself. Must make a note to stay clear of Tifton Ga., sounds like that's where the big dogs roam. Later, snakecharmr99.

My dad just sold his 300ZX vert and is in the market for a 98 Cobra. He's into open track stuff more than 1/4 mile and would do it in a heartbeat if he picks a 98 up soon. I'll let you know if he does. (He lives in Sebring, FL)
