Going on hiatus

Sorry guys, havent been on in a while, so I decided to update evryone. The day after the Calico run, I sold the Jeep. But, I sold it to Dave (the guy riding with me). Also, within the next year, my wife will be buying me a four door rubicon. I showed her pics of what I want, and she really digs the white with matching hard top with lift and 35" tires. We've been talking about a second vehicle for her to drive and she likes the idea of a 4 door wrangler. The other reason I sold the jeep, besides the fact I got a fully restored mustang in the deal, is it looks like the treatments arent working, and Im going to have to get surgery for my neck and possibly my lower back too. So, offroading is out of my equation for atleast half a year.
From what my doctor is telling me, C6 and C7 are completely shredded now. Either way, Im sure Dave will be registering on the boards, and with his OCD, there is gonna be another badass wrangler running around town. I cant wait to see what he builds!!! Needless to say, Im still gonna be around, and will be riding passenger with Dave on some outings once my neck and back issues are resolved. Also, if you see a pepper gray 94 mustang tearing cruising around town throwing up jeep waves, its just me.

I"ll be changing the hood in the spring. I've had a cervini's ram air II hood in my garage for about 4 years now, so I'm painting the cowl and scoop section black and the outer pepper grey. I'm also adding a Mach 1 chin spoiler soon. I'm picking up a different cam and bigger MAF and injectors too. My goal is to get to as close to 350 rwhp n/a and then saving up for a novi 2000 supercharger. My final goal is to hit as close to 600 rwhp. Right now the motor is stroked to a 306 with ported and polished heads, gt40 intake, cai, headers, x pipe w/ high flow cats w/ spintech mufflers and dumps. I also re-geared it to 3.73's (was going to do 4.10's, but didn't want to swap again when I go boosted). Oh, and I also have a ZEX Nitrous kit sitting in my garage from my last mustang build. One thing that's cool is that the car is show ready as she sits.
