BP festiva acceleration
1.8l from escort gt with mazda 323 5spd Exhaust has 2 1/4 Exhaust with stock header. I just figured this

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
1989 SHOGUN Prototype By Chuck Beck
SHOGUN Article and Video by Miguel Caparros
Late last year, Chuck Beck arrived at a car event I was at, not driving his
usual Porsche 904A, but this little yellow Bomb. Chuck is known for his
incredible Porsche 904A recreations that are absolutely fantastic. Aside
from the fact that they look like a 904, these cars can actually be used on
a daily basis as they have all the latest technology. Chuck's shop
fabricates everything, the quality is beyond reproach, there is usually a
waiting list for his cars. He opened his first shop after he left Shelby
American where he was one of the original crew involved in the Cobra and GT
40 projects. He opened his own shop in Southern California. I have known
about Chuck for a long time.
A crowd gathered around the little yellow car wondering what it was, Chuck
was having fun as everyone guessed wrong. Being the show off that I am I
chimed in with the correct answer. Chuck then started to explain about the
origin of the SHOGUN.
Rick Titus, a race car driver, who had some connections at Ford, brought
the idea and some drawings of the SHOGUN to Chuck Beck's Southern
California Shop. With some mild blessing from a Ford executive that Rick
worked with, Chuck located a crashed Festiva and got to work on building
this car. If I recall correctly for this prototype the engine came from
Ford via a damaged Taurus SHO that also donated many of its parts to make
the whole thing work. The Yamaha built Super High Output engine is a 4 cam
with 4 valves per cylinder. At the time the 220 horsepower was stout for a 3
liter 6 cylinder, being transplanted to a car that is 1,000 lbs lighter you
end up with Supercar performance. Where the original Festiva engine was
located, a radiator and fuel cell went in. The rear seat and floor were cut
out and a fabricated sub frame with race inspired suspension went in along
with the now mid mounted engine.
This car was a media Super Star from day one, even making the cover of most
auto publications including Road & Track. There is no denying that this car
was the right Idea at the right time. What was wrong was that it took two
new cars to build it. You needed a new Taurus SHO and a new Festiva.
Economically it made no sense but what killed it was Fords legal
department. At the time that the SHOGUN came out I was peddling around in
the car that looked very similar to it, and some said that the Renault R5
turbo was the inspiration for the
SHOGUN. Jay Leno used up a little of his Tonight Show salary and bought the
first production car from Chuck Beck.

What's the Best Truck? Ford F-150 vs Ram 1500 -- Edmunds.com
What is the best truck? There aren't many, but everyone has a strong
opinion. To help provide an answer, this time on Face Off we asked
Edmunds editors James Riswick and Dan Edmunds to pick what they
thought was the best pickup.
James chose the best-selling Ford F-150. Dan brought a Ram 1500 along
with an Airstream trailer to really see which of these equally priced
pickups was the most capable by towing it up a very steep grade. They
also compare cab quality, features and comfort.
Edmunds Face Off: 2 trucks, 2 editors, you decide which 1 wins.

2014 Ford Raptor 6.2L vs F-250 6.2L Mashup Ike Gauntlet Towing Test ( Part 1)
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2014 Ford SVT Raptor does not directly
compete against the Ford F-250. But in this case both trucks have one
significant thing in common...they both come equipped with the same Ford
6.2L engine. In fact the Raptor's 6.2L V8 is tuned with a few more ponies
from the factory. So how do these two different trucks with the same engine
compare when it comes to towing. We decide to find out by taking both
trucks up the TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet Mega towing torture test in classic
The Ike Gauntlet is a timed run up one of America's steepest highways from
9,000 feet above sea level to the top of the mountain at entrance to the
Eisenhower Tunnel in Colorado. Check out this promo for what's coming up
soon on The Fast Lane Truck.
