Progress on mIRC Skyfall has been slow and mostly on the brainstorming side of things. Got some ideas worked out and some new features are going to be introduced, new things.

Work and this is what's been taking up a lot of my time lately. ;)

Just did the paint and few other minor things. It's another project of mine that I've been working on little by little for the last 3 years or so.

Now that I've got this project caught up some, will be getting more coding done soon. :)

You'll have to clue me in as to what car I'm looking at since it's got no badges. I want to say it's a Nissan? Z, perhaps? Ignoring the "Z" sticker in the back window.

Looks good. I wish I had more time/money to work on my car, but that time will be here soon enough, after college of course.

Yes, it's a Nissan 300ZX (Z31). I haven't spent all that much on the car so far, maybe $4500. I bought car itself for $150 as a parts car and pieced it back together with a lot of new stuff thrown in. ;)

Very nice, looks good for starting out as a parts car. I have an '07 Mustang that I toy with every now and again. I'd like to drop a 4.6L V8, or in my dreams, a 5.4L GT500 V8, in it some day. However until that day comes I can have some fun with the 4.0L V6 that's in there. :)

Hahaha nice. If you're going with a Ford V8, I would recommend the 302 (5.0L) or 351 (5.7L or is it 5.6? lol). 4.6's are okay, but the 351 is a beast.

The GT500? The Shelby GT500? It had the 428 (7.0L) Cobra Jet big block. At least the '67 did. IDK what these new stangs have in them these days LOL

The GT500 in 2007 had a 5.4L supercharged V8. I think you're thinking of Chevy with the 351. ;) I'd probably go with the 4.6 for the sake of fit. I'd have to cut and weld so much junk to fit anything else it's literally not worth it.

Ford made the 351 Windsor and the 351 Cleveland. Chevy made the 350. :P

When it comes down to it though, doesn't matter what motor you use, it's how you build it.
