this is the same 83 Mustang seen in other video's of mine. this was shot about midway through the tuning stage when we just worked out a kink that had us limited to about 2500 rpm's. i realise it doesn't sound like much, but it was a very proud moment in the shop to finally hear this beast roar to life at it's full potential.
Why we need an engine test stand
Two engines my friends started for the first time and seated the rings.
There were problems starting each one for the first time. It was funny and
my friend was so frustrated, he swore he wouldn't start anymore engines in
cars without first starting them on an engine stand to see that all
problems were fixed.

Chevy Mustang - First Burnout
this is an 83 stang that we converted to chevy. it has a 650+hp 350 and a
2 speed powerglide trans. so far we have got it into the 11 second range,
and hope to drop it to the tens by next season. this video is of the first
burnout smokin a brand new set of yokahamas in my driveway.
Chevy Mustang - Glowin Headers
Along with the flame throwing we developed a problem with over heating the
headers. at one point when i wasn't recording the headers got so hot that
all the pipes were glowing including the 3 inch collector and tailpipe.
one splash of water from the radiator and we would have been buying new
headers. anywho, this was all a timing problem and is now sorted out
