Default Backyard build

I'll make a proper intro later when I'm good and drunk, but browsing through the recent build-ups and seeing nothing but people decking their cars out in egay ---- prancing around like they've done something is making me pissed off. Here's my build that I did while lurking this site for the past few years without making a single post, there was no need to...the search button worked just fine.

Quick rundown: OBD1 swapped EF, Z6, Si cable tranny, dsm 450's, and a bunch of random ---- thrown together


30lb chunk of 1/2" steel picked up at the local scrapper for $10, strapped down and ready to be made into flanges

unfortunately the Z6 spun a bearing 2 days after the build was completed, so an engine swap was in order.

No, it put down about 140ish whp and 140tq on a problematic mustang dyno. Got walked on by a 240 with a red-top SR swap and stays dead even with an 04 Accord V6 coupe (had an intake).

My experience with that dyno tells me that it would have put down around 160-170 anywhere else, but its a 14b running off of the stock wastegate (7psi)
