It doesn't make me mad that someone doubts my times, even though it doesn't make sense to me to doubt them. I spent a lot of money and time over the winter on suspension and weight reduction and really only picked up .2 this time out because of the rear end problems I'm having. It has a lot more in it the way it sits, that's for sure.

What ticks me off is that someone would start that behind the scenes without trying to call me out about it. I think it's apparent that I won't hold back when I think something's not on the up and up, so why would I expect the same from anyone else?

If it weren't for physics and law enforcement, I'd be unstoppable.

Did you just get a really good one or I've gotta be missing something here? And please no snobbery or comments telling me to search or something.
The Explorer engine is exactly the same as the Mustang engine, except for the aluminum block. The pistons, rods, heads, cams, etc. are the same. I just took the Exploder engine, stripped it of it's intake and exhaust, put the intake and exhaust off the Bullitt on it and dropped it in.

Hell, it's still got the Explorer waterpump on it with the threaded end for use with the Explorer's clutch fan......... lol

So for whoever thinks your ran nitrous, just post some of your pics and vid of what happened on your dyno run LOL.

I could see some people having their doubts. They just have no idea how many pounds you have shaved.

Cheers!

Given your suspension and weight mods and track experience, the times and traps you're doing aren't at all unreasonable. Don't waste your time with these dumbshits.

/1967 Coupe
All the usual bolt-on's /200 I6, C4

And a few Explorers too... 2008 4.0 XLT 4x2, 1996 XLT 5.0 4x2, 2003 Sport Trac XLT 4.0 4x4

I wouldn't race this man down the track if he had two factory stock spares on the back instead of slicks.

If anyone doubts the numbers are possible, then they haven't done the math. With a 4.30 gear you can expect to see better as well.

Nitrous, well, Bullitt better be in the gym working on his left leg and right arm with 4.30 gears

Bullitts are capable of running in the high 13s stock so with Rich's bullitt he has weight reduction, he knows how to drive obviously, and he has a ton of suspension work done im not entirely sure where all this SHOCK is coming from lol.

Check out this bullitts time at then end of this vid (13.8) not bad at all for a stock 2v... Haha oh yea dont mind the mach 1 lol...
