No your fine it's just the post 72 units from ford we retarded 8 degrees from the factory for emissions reasons. You can get your intake center where you need it with what you bought.

Wouldn't the street be where a C-4 would live? No traction, chirping 2nd and 3rd. The strip with slicks, 4k+ high stall converts, traction, wheels in the air I'd think would be more the strain.

I'm not a fan of C4 for long term durability, bom They just aren't heavy enough IMO

Put a C6 in and forget about it. sunny

The ones that go into the water jacket (around water pump openings). I dab a little non-hardning Permatex #2 on the threads.

That is a negative right now.....

I had enough money for one or the other. And could not afford both. Wish i could have found someone local to help out but it was not to be. Couldnt have the local shop do it as they were the same people who installed my springs incorrectly!

I will deal with degreeing it over the winter when I tear it back down to inspect it and clean up the engine bay.

But for now it should make a nice difference.

Now if you wanna come visit and bring yours, Id be happy to have ya! Beer and food provided!
