Well everything's in (Injectors, MAF, pumps) but unfortunately I don't have a tune so I have no idea how it runs. Should have a temporary tune by weeks-end.

Also installed a set of CNC machined CMCV delete plates to replace the smaller cast FRPP plates. And to top it all off, I even painted the valve covers Ford blue.

You busy little bee! Looks good. Are those delete plates just the more expensive ones that Steeda offers or did you have them matched to your heads?

They're the bigger race plates. I was surprised how much bigger the ports are.

Are they a pretty good match? Think you may be able to squeeze another 10 out of it?

That is a sick car you have there man. Expensive, but SICK.

Wonder how all that stuff would react to a 5.4... :drool:

They match real well to both the intake plenum and the manifold. We'll see how they perform once I get a tune in the thing.

Looks good Mark... Did you paint the covers yourself?

I did... I have a compressor and spray gun. Not perfect, but they turned out pretty good.
From the pics they look like they turned out real good. Did you sand them first, or just paint over them?

i have heard that the larger delete plates dont give you much gain over the regular ones they just look REALLY nice. But we will find out though.

I would think they would perform best with a after market intake manifold.

We'll see how they do with my ported heads.

Still she sits awaiting a tune. Pretty depressing that all the work is done and I can't even start it. :(

Looks really good. Who is going to tune it? This the the perfect time to get PRP.

Yeah, would be nice to be able to do it myself. I'll probably have Springfield Motorsports dyno it again in a couple of weeks. For now I'm going to run a canned Brenspeed tune just so I can get it on the road.
