      The rules for this thread are very simple: Pic-whore your domestic V8.

      WARNING: THIS IS A PEDANT-FREE ZONE.

      This isn't a contest to show off how much you know about a given vehicle's country of manufacture/assembly/parts-sourcing. "Domestic V8" refers to V8s built for vehicles sold by U.S. manufacturers. Swaps are welcome (LSx RX-7s, E36s, etc.). Obscure applications are also welcome (i.e., you own a British car with a Ford V8 under the hood).

      As long as it's powered by an American V8 and you own it, game on.

      Rule #1

      My 2015 5.0 GT/PP. Guard Metallic. Steeda CAI (restricted/untuned) and sound tube delete.

      I'm in for this thread as well.

      It wasn't mine specifically, but I wrote an article and photographed this TVR 2500M swapped with a Ford 5.0 V8 from a Foxbody Mustang. It was pretty awesome.

      I'm really having a hard time telling myself headers and a Corsa exhaust aren't the best idea I could possibly have at the moment.

      Well colour me jealous of your LT-1.
      Just a base 350 in ours (later known as the L-48)...

      Also - that Whipple-charged Denali. Damn.
      I have no where to park a truck - but I'd make room for that!

      You aren't going to find anyone here asking you to do anything but post the video/soundtrack once installed.


      Excellent thread idea. I daily a 1500 5.3. You all have probably seen one. It's just like that.
