          I wonder....does Max (Hasperde) know what has become of that beautiful Opal Opalescent 96 he once cherished?
          The metamorphosis of that gleaming pearl car is truly outstanding.
          Very cool of you to share the transplant with us.
          Cant wait to see the track numbers. I recall watching it run a 15.40-something in 2005 here in California at sea level in stock(wheels only) trim.

            I haven't heard from Max for a long time.

            14.084 @ 97.55 is the best it's run since I've had it.

            I suspect it could be a little quicker now.

                Man that is some nice stuff there! Do you have your guess at what she will run? I will guess on the street tire chrome rims in your pic 11.99@118. On DR's I guess 11.49 @119. On your 100HP 20 pill I guess 10.90@127. Can't wait to see.

                  I don't know if I could even launch it on street tires.

                  My guess is your guess is probably pretty good. I'd be happy with 11.49 N/A.

                    I thought for ****s and giggles you would run it in 100% street trim just to try it.

                      What are you going to be running for a gear and converter?

                        That wouldn't be out of the question.

                        The car has hand me downs from the Blue Flame, 4.10s with trac-lok and a PI Stallion triple disc 3600 stall converter.

                            I hope it's "finished" by then!

                              How's the hood fitment? I know you've got the cowl hood for that one, but I hope it all fits together.

                                The hood fit with the exception of having to trim the underside for clearance at the back towards the cowl. The edge of the cowl also needed trimmed back just a tad.

                                The prior Cobra intake had actually been rubbing slightly at the same spot. I figure I can either have the cut away section blended in at a fiberglass repair shop or just trim the edges a bit more to square it up and put some type of moulding on the perimeter.
