Well, time for a stroker update. Its been well over six months, I still haven't run the nitrous yet, the trans is still banging out the gears strong, the engine hasn't grenaded, but I'm working on a super secret long ram intake with a big throttle body. I have never been able to get the fuel controller programmed right, I don't have the patience to keep trying to write a fuel map (I'm not a rocket scientist nor a patient man), so the MAP is running in stock configuration. Haven't been on a dyno yet, nor the strip to get a 1/4 mile time. Thinking of adding a newer and bigger cold air intake (never did get the scoop sealed to the intake pipe, I just let the air flow over the engine to help cool underhood. Thinking of adding a water/methanol injector to cool the intake charge, saw it make a 35 hp difference on a turbo intercooled Mopar, wondering if it will give the 4.0 a slight boost. If nothing else it will steam clean the valves! Couple street races against stangs and tuners have left them embarrased and wondering. I get a lot of looks when I roll up beside someone who knows engines and they see and hear the cam rumble. And a lot of "What do you got in that?" I just smile and tell em its an old slant six with two plug wires missing thats why it runs so lumpy.
