How do I post video in my phone? I’m having a hard time
The way I do it is to upload my video to my YouTube channel (I had to create one), and then it’s as easy as Copying the http address and pasting it in your post. I am not aware of a way to direct post to this site like you can do with pictures. Hosting videos on this forum would take a lot more storage than just hosting pictures.

Congrats. It must be adrenaline in a can

Took cobra around block, here is how car reacts starting in 3rd gear. I can’t use 1st&2nd gear to dangerous lol.so this was first time starting in 3rd and it’s perfect,a lot more controllable only I’m prolly gonna kill the clutch.

Awesome you got to drive the car but that experience is why I got rid of my GT500 for the GT350. All that power isnt as much fun if it's not usable. Hopefully you can find s way to use that power and make the car enjoyable.

From thos who have driven them I always hear that the 289 Cobras were the better driver's cars while the 427 cars were just monster motors that tried to constantly kill you.

Without a doubt car wants to kill me every time it goes out. Literally easily comes out from under me,it’s very scary lol. I own some very powerful cars and this one by far is The only one I’m Uncomfortable with It’s very unpredictable

What made you want to go for such a big hp build vs a much cheaper and easier and probably more drivable n/a coyote under the hood?

Wanted to be different than others and have a 1 off build.And when I was told it couldn’t be done because the motor is too big to fit chassis that gave me even more the reason lol. I had to do a lot of fabricating to get motor to fit and make all new foot boxes and firewall etc.

I like wild and that is crazy WILD! I got worried for you seeing the ass-end step out on such a narrow street with cars parked close by... I’d sure hate to see you slide into something and ruin all of your hard work.

Have fun... be careful!

So back to this. All new idler pulleys,Belts,alt and whine is still there??‍♂. I thought for sure this was my problem,guess not. Can it be the water pump That makes that noise? its only when I rev motor, quiet on idle.

Not sure about the whine ......I assume all the accessory pulleys etc are all in the same location as a stock GT500 would be. If you didnt change anything you shouldnt have a whine .... bad bearing ???

What rear gears are u running ..... could always change those out

Maybe it's just me, but that seems like the normal "supercharger whine" we all love to hear ????

Sound is coming from front of motor. Rear is fine.as soon as I take acc belt off it’s quiet. Powersteering makes no noise even when turn the wheel so only other thing can be is water pump I’m thinking? But again there’s only 3500 miles on motor so how can it be bad

Ok.so I went a bought a tool I never though I’d use lol, A stethoscope. Turns out noise is in fact the powersteering pump. What confuses me is why no noise on idle or when turn the wheel only when rpm is higher? Isn’t that odd?
thanks
