Looks real nice, Terry. The tape stripe adds something.

So, will you take it to the strip? I wonder what times you might do.

More photos would be great, too.

BTW, what caused the bowed hood? I am convinced the Roush hood struts are too strong for the stock hood and have that problem a bit too.

How did you fix it?

Anyway, car looks great!

Bob,

I really have not decided if I will run it this year at The NMRA World Finals in Bowling Green, KY. or not.

I am so happy to have it back I am a little reluctant I suppose to stick it on a Drag Strip.

Maybe I will feel different as time goes by.

The Seibon CF (Carbon Fiber) hood fitment issue was ...........

The Roush hood-struts.

Seibon said in their instructions to "Not" use any Hood-Struts.

I told Brenspeed I wanted to match the Roush Supercharger so install the Roush Hood-Struts.

Bad move and decision on my part.

They (Roush Hood-Struts) caused the hood to be high next to the windshield and also they bowed the hood slightly in the middle section.

I saw that when I had it in TX. at the Shootout and knew I messed up.

So when the Bullitt went back to Brenspeed I had them remove those hood-struts.

Simply went back to the OEM Hood Support Bar.

Then Brenspeed sent it back to Eric that did the Custom painting on the Center Section to refit the hood with the Roush Hood-Struts removed.

Eric did an excellent job on readjusting the hood and now it looks awesome.

Oh you also said you like the Fender (Side Graphics).

This time the guy that does them for Brenspeed changed the Design some and these really look great.

They Do-Not just JUMP out in your face at all.

At the right angle you see them but if you are not really looking for them you probably would not know they are there.

They are as the pictures show a Flat Charcoal finish.

The color/finish comes very-very close to matching the side mirrors, front & rear GT/CS fascia's and front & rear Honeycomb grills.

Brent & George told me they really liked these much better than the 1st set.

Once I saw the Bullitt in person I knew why they said what they did.

These do look very nice and the install of them is perfect.

I'm not sure what other pictures you or anyone would like to see ???

If you have some in mind just tell me and I will see if I can take the ones you want.


Terry

Looking good Terry, fun to have the machine back at home so you can play with it right.

Terry,
For this amount of power, I'm thinking you should switch to a 9" rear for strength, and to taller gearing like 3.15 or 3.31 so you can launch without just smoking the tires.

WOW, that is one MEAN Bullitt! I love just about everything about that build. What are your overall driving impressions? does the car all come together well (handling, braking) or does the power kind of steal the show? (not a bad thing!)

If you get a chance, maybe some interior pictures? i'd love to see what the cockpit of that beast looks like (gagues and such).

Thanks for the photos. Very nice look and impressive mods for the new and improved - new and improved - new and improved - new and improved - new and improved - - new and improved - tigermachine (I am sure that I left a few out) . And I am anxious to see what you have in mind for the next new and improved tigermachine. I am curious if you noticed much difference in driveability with the comp cams over the Detroit rocker cams.

Chuck,

Thanks Chuck I'm glad you like the way it looks.

I have gotten to drive it some since bringing it home.

It drives so normal unless you

I read you and I do follow what you are saying.

There are "Additional Changes" coming but not a 9" rear assembly right now.

The Bullitt drives just like a basically stock Mustang, sort of.

But it does change "Abruptly" if I really get into it with the Go-Pedal.

It gets Crazy if from a Stop or slow-rolling speed I really get into it !!!

Additional pictures I can do for you on the interior.

I don't think I have any right now of the interior after the last Major changes.

I'll try to get them taken and posted in the near future for you.

Just check back on this Thread for them.

Lee,

It's a nice thing for me the guy that owns the Bullitt for you to say and especially if you actually think that.

I appreciate your way of stating what you think buddy.

Al,

Thanks for your thoughts on the end result of it.

Just hang loose as I will Post on this Thread what Brent & George have in mind as soon as I get that exact information.
Probably that will be coming next week IMHO.

The Detroit Rocker Cams ......
I better watch and think before I post this on what I think.
Here goes Al,
I think the Brenspeed "Detroit Rocker Cams" do just fine in a more [Normal] application.
I have not had those cams with this new set-up so honestly I can't really compare.
I can tell you how these new Comp Cams are to drive with.
They are an excellent choice as Brent made that decision not me.
Being the Wild-Ass I am I was going to go with the Really-Bad-Boy Comp Cams.
Brent had also ran them doing test.
He was (Totally) against running them for my application for a Street Driven Mustang.
I gave it some though and backed-off and let Brent do what he thought was right for cam choice.
I can't really say much beyond what I have posted before on the drivability of my Bullitt now.
It drives just like a Stock Bullitt Mustang in the City, interstate, heavy traffic, Stop & go traffic, cruising at 70-75 MPH with cruise set.
Here is the way I would describe driving mine as it currently is.
Start it and let the temperature gauge move and the idle settle down,
put it in D (Drive) and off you go in a very normal manner,
turn onto the interstate, turn A/C on, set cruise, turn the X/M satellite radio on,
set back, relax, and down the interstate you go.

But ............

It is a Jekyll & Hyde sort of Mustang in reality.

Calm as I described above ..........

Or .......

Matt it from a stop and it simply Explodes and does not stop accelerating that I could tell.

I'm not sure it would be very smart to be stopped and floor it and keep it on the floor.

I tried it rolling and had to let up on it and let it shift, gain speed, and then floor it again and it is gone !!!

The Comp Cams in mine are for a Supercharged application with high boost.

They work with like the Stage III Ford Racing Heads, Comp Cams for High Boost, Comp Racing Springs, Retainers, Comp Limiter Phaser Up-Grades, LT Headers and all the rest of the matched components.

They would not be like simply installing a set of the Brenspeed "Detroit Rocker Cams" and not having to change anything else in the valve train.

I hope I have said and explain this to where you understand.
If you don't understand it is not on your end it is my inability to put it into the correct words for it to make sense.



Terry
