Watkins Glen Lightning Video

Some of you might know me from some of the Lightning forums (havent been very active lately)_but I've been coming over here since I bought my excursion.

I'm going to be running my truck at SVT superfest in may and im getting pretty excited. I figured I'd finally upload a bumpercam vid I took of some laps at Watkins last summer. Figured you guys might like to see.

Just saw this thread. Welcome to FTE bro.

What's the pedigree on your Ex? V10? 6.0? 7.3?

Stewart

PS - I haven't been active on the L forums for the past few years. I haven't Been to LightningRodder, SVTP or NLOC in a looooooong time.

PSS - Love the vid! I haven't driven my L in months. I miss the whine!

Thanks:-)

The Ex is an 04 V10 limited. Bone stock. Ill be duplicating your suspension this summer hopefully for towing and in prep form my plow.

I was kicked of nloc a long time ago after I complained about a vendor product. Lol. Never looked back. Svtp lost its tech edge (too much dude.check out my wing!) So I ended up at LR. I haven't been very active their either tho

Wanna know something funny? Until I saw this vid, I had not heard the whine in a long time since my exhaust is so loud. Lol

Yeah, I just saw your "Hello" thread in the Ex forum.

You gonna go with the V codes? I know the V10 is a bit lighter up front, but you might wanna consider the W code springs up front.

Yeah, I know Big D can be fierce when it comes to stuff like that, especially if there's a "J" in the front, an "L" in the middle, and a "P" in the back.

A lot of the vets seemed to leave about the time I started looking to my diesel to mod. Chris sold his L, I know LL took a leave, and I saw when I visited last year that Scott was trying to sell his L, etc....

Yep, me too. Just as L/Rodder was picking up steam (when a bunch of guys got pizzed off a Big D and came over from NLOC), that was about the time I lost interest in my L and started to seriously mod both of my 7.3's.

LOL. I had to mute my long tubes or I'd have been pulled over every time I took it out. Had an OEM cat welded on to each pipe, but that's not working out too well. I'm gonna have to have the whole exhaust re-done. I'll probably pull the long tubes, sell 'em, and put a set of CA smog legal shorties on with the stock cats. Need to pull these WMS heads off too because I'm tired of paying for a smog cert. Need to pass above board.

I was looking at that...I think the v codes will be ok. I'm not going to be plowing that much...just my driveway and maybe a few others...no big lots..nothing commercial.

lol...so true...my demise came when i complained about the popular oil seperator. The guy actually had a sale after i was kicked and his coupon code was "ecoastkid"...haha...I told everyone to thank me and use the savings to buy the better pieces I was complaining about

Mine wasn't originally one of the loudest L's ever..haha

Shortest version of the story ever.

1. Had long tubes into cats into dynatech
2. Bolt came out of intercooler and went through the motor at pocono raceway
3. drove it home thinking it was a bad vaccum leak..haha...This dumped a ton or raw fuel down the exhaust
4. fixed motor
5. something wasnt right
6. Exhaust blew off the header at 100 mph or so in the "S's" at the glen...scared the crap outta me
7. Gutted the clogged cats and was back out on the track next session with a few burns on my hands..haha

Due to the higher compression, massively ported heads, stage 2 crower high lifts, steigy stage 4 ported eaton with a +10 pound lower....its LOUD!!!

Here is some random dude who video'd me in myrtle beach while the cats were clogged...now they flow freely..

Listen to what the guys says at the end
YouTube - Mustang Week 2009 Blue Lightning

Here is what it sounds like now. (Wife taping..lol)
YouTube - Bye Bye Corvette.AVI
