Moving towards the front we have added the Proven Dynotech Metal Matrix drive shaft,

we have removed the transmissin and sent it to Ford for a complete tear down and insipection, then added the Art Car rebuild kit. while the Transmission is out we will add the rear engine cooling kit, and a PI 3000 stall converter.

Up front we have added the Addco front sway bar and the KVR 14" brake hit with PBR calipers and stainless steel lines

Next we will be adding our Vortech water to air unit, along with SCT tuning.


Project two is complete 2 V to V4 conversion on a 03 CV the owner bought a crate 03 Marauder motor and had it shipped here and delivered the car Saturday, We will pull the transmission and engine, install the 4 V motor send the transmission to Ford for a complete KVR upgrade install a PI 3000 stall converter, along with 410 gears posi carrier, PHP controll arms ADDCO rear sway bar and Dynotech MMDS. We will add Ronal wheels with 18 "BFG Kook's Long tube headers with Magnaflow muffler and Marauder no resonator tips. Then we will add the factory Marauder guage pod with Auto meter Boost and oil preasure guages and to top it off we will install our Vortech watter to air Supercharger kit with SCT tuning.

The owner wants to sell the stock wheels and engine, as well as a Marauder air box and zip tube, the engine has less than 30K on the clock, I will be posting pictures of this as well.

Hey Dennis, I couldn't get any of the pics to load either.

I am very interested in the 2V to 4V swap. I am thinking about doing this once my 2V goes south. Also, are you using the CV wiring harnesses and computer somehow, or did you get a Marauder setup for the swap? Keep us posted, and can't wait to see some pics.

I've heard lots of local complaints about Dynotech driveshafts still giving vibes at speed even though they are high speed balanced.

I have never heard of this and probably sold over a 1000 of these for Mark 8 CV amd the Marauder the FHP has 35 Marauders they run them over 150 MPH I have not heard of any complaints.

Well Steve has already got the engine out.

http://web.iwebcenters.com/reinhartautomotive/images/enginebay.JPG

The owner wants to sell the UDP as well

http://web.iwebcenters.com/reinhartautomotive/images/03SOHC.jpg

So he will do the rear engine cooling mod on the DOHC motor install a set of 22c and the 39 lb injectors and slip this back I looked at the ECM pin print out and there will be bery littl changes.

Some of the SE MI Mark VIII owners have complained about driveline vibes with the driveshaft. It may have been an early batch. The only reason I even know this is from the track and some of the guys I know at work who have Mark VIIIs and frequent the drag strips here. I think Dynotech is even based in Troy, MI but it was cheaper to get the shafts from you rather than them directly.

ETA: Yep, Dynotech is on Maple (15 Mile) and Crooks just south of I-75 - they fixed up Maple road finally around spring/summer of 04. It used to be sh*t. But I seriously doubt FHP would be paying attention to driveline vibes when driving 150+ mph. But heck, the stock AMMX shaft can handle 150+ mph.

I'm interested in how the 4V swap progresses!
