Good news for those of you waiting patiently (verrry patiently) for an update on Project HMX: It’s out of the garage and back on the road. Over the weekend I slapped the exhaust back on it, dropped a fresh battery in it and the stroked 4.0L barked to life like it was just running the day before. Took it into town for an alignment yesterday, using the specs from Performance American Style (thanks, Marc Montoni, for pointing those out!), and now it handles like a dream. In fact, it’s already literally tearing up the pavement, as you can see from the photo above.
Still have a stumble I have to figure out, and a whole list of other minor squeaks, rattles, and other annoyances, but at least it’s running. My plan is to spend this summer driving it and ironing out all those imperfections, then save up my nickles and dimes for paint.
