Sorry guys, I'm no machinist, I just listed what was on the piston order sheet. I'll get some better pictures tonight.

It's going to be a while before I get back out. I want the engine gone through and everything checked thoroughly, the trans will need to be upgraded as well. All new brakes and 5 lug axles too.

I'll probably sit out next season. I don't have that kind of cash laying around and this year was stressful enough on my family and I with a race or event almost every weekend.

My front rotors are so warped I can barely turn them by hand when the car is off the ground. Adding the chute was the best thing I could have done for those poor things.

I bought the car in 1997 and they're the same ones still on there.

LMFAO  Spt at PC

Yeah, it's time for brakes.

I know this is an older thread!!! But, instead of starting a new one along the same lines, I thought I would throw out my questions on here for all.

My 410 Im putting together will have rings set up for n/a power..... top Ring gap at .015 "Moly ring"

Now that its done, I regret not going with more gap and Hell Fire Rings!!!

My question is :  Can I run a Small Shot of Nitrous (100-150 shot) with the Moly Rings and .015 gap.

Or am I asking for problems..... to me its really not a big deal if I cant, But My 7 yr old boy loves hitting the nitrous on his video game and would really like to see me put my old kit back on the car and use it from time to time.....

I know this might sound crazy to some of you, but if you have a kid, who is into Mustangs like mine, You will understand.......

He wants nitrous and now I wish I put different rings in it, with more gap!!

I have run .018-.017 gap on molly rings and a 100 shot without any issues but never any smaller gap not sure if it will be ok I can tell you I had no polishing on the ring ends after disassembly.

I'd make sure that the engine is STONE COLD before hitting the nitrous, and I'd possibly just use it for 1/8 mile to be safe.   I've emptied dozens of bottles 200hp at a time at 0.018" through the 1/4 mile, but have never gone narrower than that. 

Good Luck!

Why not just take it apart & open the gap up?  Bang it out in a weekend, plus fun dad & kids project.
