 PeelOut  (my cousin used to call that downshifting chirp a "compression patch" - as opposed to the regular peeling-out kind)

Fantastic car - enjoy.

Yep, have put almost 800 miles on it recently.  Runs great.  2000 rpm at 80mph in 6th.  A couple small issues have been sorted out.  Going to have to go to an 18x9 front wheel.  Those 10.5s are just too wide for the front.  Also, it tends to backfire when downshifting for a stop.  Possibly the cutouts?  Thats annoying.  May have to replace the cutouts with an X pipe.  I'll shoot some pics soon, thanks!

Isn't backfiring a fuel/tune issue on a 5.0?

I know to dial in the best power curve on a Supercharged 5.4L I was willing to accept a little backfire on deceleration. Of course the flames out the tail end are kind of cool too.    Cheesy

I've asked an experienced engine builder/racer and he says its most likely the cutouts.  Not sure if fire is shooting out but if it is...I may leave it as it is.    HeadSpin

I know MyShelbyDream uses that. I have using tinypic, but I was told photobucket owns that too so it's days might be numbered. Too bad, it works great with an iPad.

I use Imageshack.  It's pretty good, but I wish it was free.

Back in in June, I ordered some narrower 18 x 8.5 C10 wheels from CCW.  They came in and are about to be powder coated in a satin metallic Bronze.  The rear wheels are going to be done too, of course.  Should be done by next Wednesday.  Thursday, I am driving to Concord NC to drive on the Lowe's track.  Should be a blast!  Pics soon.
