grinding shouldnt be a problem a few times, the trannies are reasonably durable, you'll be fine

It's a mach 1 32V 4.6l N/A it came with 320 at the crank. Good looking tensioner! should give you piece of mind!

Great pics Bill! Looked like fun!

Friday went to GTR the gauges are in but need one final tweak, so in about two weeks I'll be going to GTR again.


Jed

Death Race was pretty awesome!
Maybe you'll change your mind once I get to post pics Or better yet video. I'm already wondering how it would look if I painted the intake silver, Hmmmm...

pretty isn't a word that can be used to describe this, however it is entirely functional and cheaper than the next equivalent aftermarket tensioner, Thump_rrr's. The Saleen and Steeda versions have been reported as not nearly as strong.







They're cell pics... my regular camera is in a box somewhere.
Function and Quality should always come before beauty.

Beauty is just icing on the cake.




Bill- Awesome pics, I need to get back up there again.

Welcome Back Bill ! looks like you had a good time.

tensioner: Several people have bent ALL of the tensioners except the Thump_rrr and Adam's. That includes the Reichart(sp) billet one.

Paint it black ??.... After looking at it I can't bring myself to paint it. Let the world see that when I whoop on someone at the track that shiny doesn't mean fast. (Totally not making up this quote)

Dan, You should be OK as long as you didn't grind it al the way into 3rd. Get a MGW shifter and your grinding worries are over.
+2 on everything he said.

Dan you don't have the MGW shifter yet?!!! Get her done! Install party!!!

BTW... nice avatar Leo!

Watching the closing of the games. Great Britan's got their work cut out for them. I wish I knew what they are saying during the performances China's fireworks are Top Box, I know I'm a pyro
Sorry to see the games end, the world seems to be a better place when its on.

I can't find a job. :/

When I get a one I want all this:

Intake. Tune. Exhaust. Shifter. Pulleys. Shaker Hood. Chin Spoiler. CS Sidescoops. Louvers. Rotors. Etc.

I wish I had money.

... if it were a Cobra, yes, 301 to the wheels would be low.

That GrandPa quote is just silly. Why then have paint on our cars (let alone stripes)?

Well, at least I shifted thru the gears like a man at the time she went.


Now for you, there's always the option of traded it in for an Automatic.
