As always, best of luck. Really hope you have that car running perfect when the cooler temps come and hopefully you can nab yourself some good times.

Thanks, with this wideband I can see what the engine is doing now and better diagnose the problem. Right now I'm running 10 AFR at WOT, when the exhaust pops and hesitates it goes to 11 AFR, so the spark is not happening. Going to order some Denso ITV22's, supposed to be pre-gapped. I probably tried to re-gap the Autolites so many times that I destroyed the Iridium tip. The stock spark plugs are in the car right now and sometimes I will get full power and the AFR will be at 10.5 to 11, other times it will be 10 then jump to 11 or higher. One thing that pisses me off is that I can buy aftermarket coil packs for my wife's Mustang, but the Camaro gets nothing.

Once I get my ported IM back, I'm going to put the Ice-olator and Plenum spacer back on, get everything painted and start looking at the fuel trims then. I've read that I should be near 11.8 AFR for a good balance between power and safety. Maybe though once I get the intake back that it will provide better airflow and raise my AFR.

Money is starting to be stashed away for the Procharger for the Mustang. Promised my wife she will get one for her graduation gift from college.

Painted the throttle body, intake manifold, ignition coils, and the positive post cover. Wrapped the red wires with Russell wire wrap to make it look better in the engine bay. Now I just need to get the AFR fixed so she will have the go to go with the show.

Question. Is the clear starting to go on your plenum? Seems like some of my paint on my throttle body is starting to fade a little under a 100 miles and 3months.

Is that your ported IM?

And when do you sleep? I got mine back from the powder coater- it's still sitting on the bench though...

Agree it is looking really good too! That green looks better to me every time I see it.

I thought I had used an engine primer on the plenum cover but I didn't, so it will have to be repainted soon. Everything else but the valve covers are painted with 500 degree paint, with primer and clear coats with 2000 degree paint. The only problem I've had with paint is the driver side valve cover, the paint blistered from the extreme heat.

Its my stock intake manifold, MACE still has my ported one. Painted with dupli-color gloss black.

I never sleep, sleep is for the weak and the Marines. GO AIR FORCE!!!

I used a self etching primer and the paint and clear are all rust oleum engine enamel. I find it kind of strange that something that is meant for engines can be fading so quickly on the TB. Guess time will tell how well it will last. If it fades I will either repaint or get it powder coated.

Dunno why it would be fading so fast, how many coats did you use?

Also Vent, your IM looks good. About the only good thing the LLT has over the LFX, we can paint our IM.

For about each piece I have about 2-3 coats of primer and 2-3 costs of paint with the last being thicker and then another 1-2 coats of clear. My fuse box that was done with normal non height paint still looks perfect

Thanks- my first effort was truly ugly (tried to match the IBM). The paint chipped really easy. Decided to go Day-glo for the second try- WTH!
