...my car just got faster...***lotsa pics***

... thought you guys would be interested in the results of the last day (or what tibbo calls the never ending quest for e-series glory)

They say pictures speak louder than words so here we go...
The ricey 1.7:1 'Ford Motor Sport' Roller Rockers and bling bling B.P.T Underdrive Pulley Kit and a 20 rwkw 2 pac paint job.


New rockers installed

Rocker MACRO baby

Topless Windsor

Ready for Re-assembly

Upper intake on-da-bench

Rocker Covers on-da-bench

Underdrive Pulley Spinning

Finished Drivers Side

Finished Passenger Side

Red is Faster?

The underdrive pulley is significantly smaller in diameter than the factory unit. I was almost embarrassed showing my mates GIRL PULLEY was the cry! The new belt is as tight as a camels arse-hole in a sand storm. I've had some troubles with the alternator (lights dim at idle) but I believe these to be pre-existing concerns.

It seems that the note of the motor has changed. It's hard to describe but perhaps "throatier" is the best way to put it

Hats off to Ford for the well thought out design of the drivers side rocker cover to alternator & heater pipe clearance.

I'll have the beast dynoed and run her at willowbank again. I wonder if I'll need a roll-cage

p.s. Just joking about the bling Barry, the pulley R0cKs!

Re: ...my car just got faster...***lotsa pics***

Ford stinged on the engine bay,, they used a base coat minus the metalic on the engine bay opposed to the metalic paint on the outside.. The colors are actually the same but without the metalic fleck thru the paint, it shows up very differently with the camera flash.. The deep maroon 2 pac we used is not regency but a maroon with a pearl.. We tried to highlight the engine by painting the manifold and rocker covers in a distinctive (although matching) colour, not so much blend the parts in with the rest of the car... As we had it all dismantled, why not splash on a nice colour??

Re: ...my car just got faster...***lotsa pics***

lucky bastard.. except i woulda put a better manifold on and painted that..

you didnt get to test drive the pulley by itself did ya. made a difference i noticed.. but those rockers would have givin you some extra urge huh?

Re: ...my car just got faster...***lotsa pics***

ahhh the manifold is on the cards but Mr. Visa is nipping at his heals for now i think.. I have enough paint left over for when he gets his finger out and makes the next major purchase...The most surprising thing (without a timeslip as proof yet) is the rumble in the exhaust,, The car now has a noticeable growl... I'm calling sub 15 second 1/4 mile times now... And no we didn't run the car with only the pulley,, it was an all or nothing kind of job
