    Sounds wicked! Make sure you put the v6 emblems on the fenders to surprise people.

    Re: Big Motor, Little Truck. The BBR.

    lol I love Mopars. I consider myself a mopar guy who just happens to be building a Ford right now. My last project was a '68 Coronet. I wanted to build something more race oriented and I did not want to hack up the Dodge, so I sold it to a guy and his teenage son. I don't mind cutting holes in the Ranger, but I couldn't say the same for the Coronet. It was a 318(then 273)/904/8.75 2dr ht. Wilwood brakes (all 4), Weld wheels, non-matching front clip. White nose, gold body and black interior that was like a frying pan in the summer sun. It had a tiny bit of rust behind the rear wheels. It was a car that I grew up seeing in my neighborhood and ended up buying and owning for a little over 10 years.

    "Refined" is not a word that probably could ever be used to describe this truck. ha ha

    At first I thought you were talking about a torque converter. I looked back through all my pics to see what you were talking about. Then I realized you were talking about the cats. lol

    That wouldn't be legal, now would it?

    Something like that, they make a few different coatings for that type of application. I do drive Buicks so I do kinda like my engines refined and somewhat quiet.

    Yup
    I've had crane, comp, and ford motor sport --- they were all a bit noisy.... set lash repeatedly trying to get them to shut up.... nature of the beast I've been told.

    I can only imagine what a solid lifter engine sounds like......

    I noticed that on the 'Stang, even with a full exhaust and cats, and hydraulic roller lifters. I was sure that something was terribly wrong, but after checking with others. it seems to be pretty normal.

    Great job on the BBR -
