96 Mercury Cougar 4.6V8 Acceleration and New Camera Audio Test

As requested by Fatguywithakatana, a quick blast down the road in our 96 Mercury Cougar XR7. The car is equipped with the 4.6 SOHC V8, four-speed automatic, and a limited slip rear end. This was a test to find out if my new camera could handle the volume of driving down the road. It seems to have faired much better than my old camera. Thanks for watching and commenting, we appreciate it. hot rod rat rod muscle car show car

1996 Cougar XR7 - PI Build/Swap w/ Magnaflow Exhaust System
This is a video of the start up of my built up ported PI engine, the Exhaust system, and a short drive off. This build took about a year in total, gathering parts, rebuilding the heads and putting it all together. I still need to get it Dynotuned but that will be for later on. It runs on 94 octane as I want to avoid pinging until i get a tune done. It was fun to see it all come together. Was a lot of work but I never gave up on the project. The Audio level is different in some clips as I used a different camera for them.

96 Mercury Cougar XR7 4.6V8, Hot Rod Red, Quick Blast to Check Camera Audio
Testing out the mic on the camera to see if it can capture the sound of a much quieter car. The hot rods I've been trying to film lately have been too loud. It seems the Cougar proved to be too loud as well, sounded a bit like a space shuttle launch. I'm going to have to devise a better way to capture the sound. Not an all-out tire smoking launch, but still a mildly entertaining look out the windshield.
