    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    When I think of premium radiators, I think about Ron Davis.

    What happened?Did the battery short out and/or an electrical fire?Hope you are ok.

    This from DW “Don't overlook the ground side.”. See above.

    Love big block 440 Magnum MOPAR sound. Each Detroit Big 3 V8 Power has its own unique sound.Never thought I’d own a MOPAR big block . .. but does a L6 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel count?

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    I’d guess 440 RWHP plus or minus 5hp.

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    I believe it!The TB port looks great. Plus for the time it takes, $350 is a good value not to mention the hp gains.

    So AirFlow Research found a bad intake manifold? Did I see that right?

    Dittos, and . . .He is exceptional, yet he is modest which makes him an exceptionally special man.Very nice to see.

    It does look very sexy!

    Nice.I like how you clocked your tach mounting at what looks to be 7,700 - 7,800 RPM’s at high noon. I suspect that ‘high noon’ is your max shift point?After installing my Ford Racing gauge pod, i reclockef the oil pressure, oil temp & coolant temp gauges to high noon at normal operating...

    Hi FabMan:I suspect this stuff only works above 80ish to a Hunsky-Ish MPH. And. . . I’ve seen enough of your ‘in-car vids’ to know, you need this stuff!You Sir, are a fast driver.Oh & OBTW did I mention? One hell of a good aluminum tig-welder!Age is just a number so. . . Just relax &...

    The really good news (aside from all the premium race part upgrades) is that you secured your SCCA Race License thru the end of the 2021 race season!Congrats as I suspect you were somewhat concerned about that from some of your prior post.I’m very happy for you.

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Fabman:I like the painted and striped look of the wing. It seems to harmonize the rear of the car.Looks like you're making nice progress and I'm looking forward to seeing your finished fender flairs.All the Best, 302 Hi Pro
  14. 302 Hi Pro

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Fabman:The wing looks right at home on your Mustang R. With the new wing & rubber, your going to have one very Track capable Mustang. I would imagine with new handling characteristics.Once you get the new set up all sorted, I will forward to seeing quite a few new PB track times.302 Hi Pro

    That works!Looks great too. 2HP

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Is that Sandy?Fabman: Whoa, that is some major rubber. When are your fender flairs scheduled?I'm thinking a wide-body kit would look nice. 2HP

    If only I lived around the corner from Fabman's shop. I would sweep the floors all day long, just to hang out with the FabElves at night making aluminum 2012 Boss 302 bits.Nice stuff Fabman! 2HP

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Fabman:Thank you so much! I hadn't thought of a used machine, but great idea. Will stick with a Lincoln or Miller machine and will buy up for a high frequency unit. And for what's it worth? To me it's worth a lot and you probably saved me untold angst from buying the wrong unit.As...

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Fabman:Always good stuff coming out of your shop!Just a few questions: 1. Will you drill any holes for weight reduction, and/or slim down the top cross plate?I would like to teach myself to TIG weld: What is a decent (mid-grade) welder I might purchase that represents a good value for...

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Nice clean install in particular, the underhood cuts.2HP
  24. 302 Hi Pro

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Nice, these should reduce under hood temps and allow for a better flow of cooling air through the radiator. It will be interesting to read your comments after your next track day session.302 Hi Pro

    Fabman:You're a brave soul. I saw she was talk'in a little at you towards the end of your vid. Good stuff!302 Hi Pro

    Those are great pics, looks the GTR went with the Kenworth approach!That answered my Tech-Insp question.2HP

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    So I watched the flyby vid and found out why they, (Vet Boys), leave you alone. It's because they can't catch you!Nice vid and thanks for posting, 2HP
  28. 302 Hi Pro

    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Fabman:Now I know why you're Fabman: I'd say that is some very nice custom fabrication on the Intercooler Tank. I thought you had a cool Mustang, I just didn't know how cool.Great thread, nicely laid out from new to newly modded. Glad to see you finally got the right engine, as that...
