cool build. Only thing I see that maybe a problem is the np205 yokes. With a fair amount of hp we rip the ears off of the yokes so I just take standard 205 yokes and turn them down to a hub then machine a flat flange to press on and weld so it then uses the deuce driveshaft flange. It's just something to think about regardless of the driveshaft angle since I've watched my buddy break them on a pullin truck with no angle.

Thanks for the heads up, when I get 'er together I'll keep it mind. I'm going to see how these 1410's of jess's at H.A.D. works out at first. Then I look into what you said when things start breaking.

Not hardly I was a bad boy this year, just a stocking full of coal. :mad3:

Guys what divorced case do you think this came out of? HOLY SHIT! I dropped off some nuts and bolts to an account today and this was on a pallet when I walked by.

They haven't been shipped yet, but a Lightning brother in NC has mad some cogs for himself and a few extra to sell in doing so, we've be reverse engineering some from my set and the help of a few others. Heres the final picture, after he had them, then back to lighten them up, now he just finished getting them Balanced and anodized. He really went above and beyond

Anyways enough talk, left is the 103t and the right is the Boost Freak Cog 120t



Belle acting like a Beaver



Back when I built it in HS it was a Mall Crawler and I had a cut through with 8-10's, so I opened it up some more to close it up with some aluminum diamond plate. Figured it work good for ease of access. Also did the driver and passenger floor boards. Same reasons, dropped a few lbs in the process



cheapest/lightest way to achieve this was to use an old toolbox I already had not being used in the barn.



I've decided to only run the fenders and inner liners and ditch the front all together. trying to keep the nose as light as possible on her. The liner will also keep spalsh down in the engine area. Also planning on putting the wiring harness and fuse/relay box under the dash. ideas to keep it out of the elements.



Cleaned up the rear fenders, getting it ready for paint so it can go back together. plan to make mounts for the bedsides to bolt to and use a bedliner to keep mud off the radiator, battery and 20gal. cell.

pretty sweet truck, what was the mpg you got with those big ass tires and the 4.6? Got any vid's of it in the mud?

It wasn't the greatest, I'd say 8-9 if I kept my foot out of it. Most of the time i hammered down everywhere I went. I'd say 4-6 in town. One time I was right outside of Houston on I-45 heading to Galveston and I was running 84 for a few miles and watched the gas guage steadily drop. Maybe a 2 or 1-1 ratio. made me cry... I motor'd out at 84mph thats all she would ever give me on the 49's.

Vids in the mud??? Naw Sr. in HS and being '03 it was a little before all this new fancy technology, so to answer your question No I don't. Most all the times I put it in mud was on a whim.

Im glad the wheels are going to such a cool project!

I cant wait to see it DONE!

Thanks and thanks again for working with me on them... I'm pretty stoked on getting my junk together too. I just keep finding things that won't be up to the task, or need attention to make the build right.


Getting ready to assemble the drivetrain



* Volant C.A.I & outer ware (most sealed system)
* SCT2600 MAF
* P&P upper plenum
* accufab SBTB
* T/B spacer for nitrous
* upper plenum to S/C phenolic spacer, better airflow
* P&P S/C, (stock Eaton for reliablity)
* P&P Midplate
* Midplate to lower intake 1/2" spacer, more/cooler aircharge for more timing, better flow
* P&P Lower Intake
* coolant crossover mod -12an
* T.E.A. StgIII Heads

* +1mm oversized s/s valves and retainers
* Comp 125# springs
* Crower StgII Cams

* Pacesetter L/T
* 3" exhaust, Catless, Y'ed into 4" I/O Magnaflow Muffler, 4" dump
* Forged S/B
* 16# cogged as of now, but plan to run 18-20lbs w/ a smaller upper
* LFP StgII rebuild for my 4r100 (not purchased)
* P.I. 24-2600 stall
* Punisher V/B
* 60lb injectors
* Aeromotive rails
* 20 gal. cell with sender
* regulator and pump havent been purchased yet


* No A/C
* No EGR
* No EVAP

Heres a more exact picture of the cogs that will be going on the accessory belt. Thats the quick change 120t next to the 84t lower




And what happens when uncle Timothy watches me... :D Soph, look at all the pretty pictures

No not done, just having fun building it.

I ordered up wilwood rotors for patooyees pinion brakes and I have some superlite calipers that are headed this way.

Tossing the idea back and forth through emails about haveing a braket made, if I want to bolt the on as wheel brakes instead.



I also have trick performance looking into making me a 3" thermostate housing spacer, so I can rotate my waterneck 180* for more of a straight shot to my rear mount radiator. I needed it to clear the fuel rail.

I had a buyer for the lift and front axle so I yanked them and put the truck on the ground for a little bit.



While I was in I did some fishing, and oh holy hell, this wall hanger yanked me off the bank and broke my poll :flipoff2:

I got my tails air brushed



ordered up emblems to kinda fit the role for the truck, now just to paint everything, some orange pinstripping aswell



1.25"x1 RH heims, still need to order the left hand



Tube adaptores



Ive ordered up all s/s socket head cap"allen head" screws for the front and rear axles and np205 so I can keep down on weight and only run 2) 50 cal ammo boxes for tools on the trails. I'm doing the whole truck in them, but the motor and tranny will stay metric, due to ease of finding bolts if im not local.




been talking to Motochris w/ F.O.A. about getting my front coilovers, so those are coming soon...

Rangers won! Headed to the game tomorrow :grinpimp:

Bringing it back up from the dead...

Changed directions with the build guys.

Decided that the 1.8l eaton was ting going to be enough blower to satisfy me and the 2v heads didn't seem to appealing anymore so I picked up a set of 4 valve lincoln navigator heads.



I got rid of my T.E.A. stgIII 2v Romeo heads and got a 6-71 blower.



It's a 6-71 large bore, figured it would be plenty of blower for a small block 331ci motor.



Plans are to adaptor the 6-71 on top of the 5.4 4vlave heads...

Back up.

So the builds changed up a good bit. Life happens and I'm A.D.D. Like crazy so it's gone a different coarse.

I've changed directions from a '02 Lightning drivetrain to a '00 Lincoln Navigator 5.4 4valve with a 6-71 large bore GM blower.

This is the wiring from an '00 Lincoln Navigator, computer and harnesses... Along with the front timing cover and valve covers that are needed.



Cleaned up the valve covers real good and decided to give them a coat of paint.



And paint action



Decided ford GT blue was fitting for them. Also I've decided that the 4 valve heads are going to keep my coils much dryer than what it would have been 2v in the open.

Looks like I'm going to get a tubing bender, I was going to let a friend do some tube work for me, but it seems he's too busy, so I guess I'll be getting a JD2 bender in the near future...

I ended up picking up some motor plates for a mod motor



The trans

Figured I'd give you a comparison of a stock Lightning/termi blower, beside a 6-71



A good bit of difference

The stock Lightning/'03-'04 cobra blower is a 1.8L blower some 4 bangers aren't even that big... This 6-71 is pretty damn big!

Figured I should open it up like I'm doing every other part of the build, any thing that can slow airflow was removed and is being ported...

Sooo

Strength ribs had to go



Since this isn't sitting on its side and being used as an exhaust they're not needed for integrity



Also I know this is about the same as taking a shit before a ride, but I dropped a little bit of weight. Lol



And next for the exit side of things

Alright guys, don't grill me too hard, but I tried to accomplish a task that was to large for my small garage and angle grinder. Haha

I need some more tools for the garage.
