Wife didnt really "get" the video as I would have liked, but 35 minutes of high idle, got the cam broke in and at 1:20 or so, you can hear the idle. Sounds pretty good to me!

No leaks, runs good, dodged a bullet at cam break in

I'll get a better movie here tomorrow, wife is making me shower and take her to eat LOL

It really isnt that mellow, although during most of the movie I have it above 1200 rpm. At 900, its got a real good lope to it. Thats OK though, it sure sounds like its going to work out nice.

North East of Texas ...

I was happier when he was west of Texas ...

Never-the-Less it's always nice to see Ross back in Vegas.

That was one awesome car even with the goofy little 427 in it ...

This 489 FE will be the ultimate in cool ... Can't wait to plan a trip to Virginia to get a close up look.

Congratulations on the project Ross ...

Thanks Larry, we miss being around good friends, but you know us East Coasters, it'd be like dropping Maria in a snow storm. She'd make it, but she wouldnt be happy LOL

Allenman - I am in the military, San Antonio resident after being stationed there. Just keep the registration current so I dont have to retitle. I did love my time as a transplanted Texan though!
