This is my first start of my car with the 392w 430/450 Ford crate motor. Now I just go out to the shop and listen to it idle! Can't wait to get it on the road and pull up to a intersection and just grin!Enjoy
I'm right where you are in my build, so I'm hoping to have mine running soon, too. Mine is also a 393 (actually 292.7 cid), but custom built (by me) with a less aggressive cam.
AAAurrrgggghhh...Now I just want to leave work, go home, and get mine started.
Can you be tempted to get on the loud pedal a bit to let us hear the rage of the beast. Speaking of a loping idle - I remember reading a description of a 30's racing Bentley it sounded like buggerit...buggerit...buggerit......
