Wow! I just emailed the guy. I would be willing to pay well over market value for a t ram intake!

I have a complete, never used McFarland setting on the shelf. I think it's time to sell.

Re: Looking for a unicorn ( SLP T ram or McFarland short ram)

I talked to the guy who sold it. He has 1 more complete t ram, as well as a real SLP prototype t ram with documentation. I offered over $3000 for the production one and couldn't make it happen.

No, it was painted black, and was missing a few minor pieces. I don't really feel like digging for the auction to see what was there, but IIRC it didn't have the throttle cable bracket, and something or other else was missing, T-stat housing maybe? IDK, had an aftermarket throttlebody and a set of injectors, or something like that.

I thought about it just long enough to figure that I wouldn't be able to leave it painted, and God knows what may be under the paint. That and cloning a Firehawk sounds like digging myself a hole to shovel money into, and that was that. It lasted at least 24hrs on Ebay before it sold.

Re: Looking for a unicorn ( SLP T ram or McFarland short ram)

Screenshot. Same unit, maybe it was listed again after someone snagged the parts, because this one was absolutely incomplete.

Re: Looking for a unicorn ( SLP T ram or McFarland short ram)

I've been talking to that guy, he owned 2 different 91-92 firehawks, and that intake sold on eBay for $1350 then the same guy was able to buy one of his SLP Dana 44's to him too. He still has 2 44's and those 2 t rams. He's a really cool dude to talk to, and had a
Ton of history about the SLP parts and what not. The number it was going to take to buy his production T ram was just slightly more than I was willing to pay.

Re: Looking for a unicorn ( SLP T ram or McFarland short ram)

Do you guys really see a need or desire to snag up these T Rams intake setups? Do you thin they will increase in value down the road or are we all n this T Ram kick like Ford guys are with the Notchback Foxbodys right now.

Re: Looking for a unicorn ( SLP T ram or McFarland short ram)

The T-Ram is a novelty. Better than a stock TPI, but unless you want or need the look, there are surely better and more cost efficient ways to make more power. I don't see them increasing in value as much as they're just virtually unobtainable. It's not like you can just lay your cash on the counter and claim one.

Ford guys have been sick about Notchbacks since forever. They're always going to be the Fox Mustang without a hatchback. You know hatchbacks right? Like a Honduh, or a Ford Pinto, or a family truckster Station Wagon. Yeah, I get that thirdgens are theoretically hatch backs, but have you been up close and personal with a Fox body? They're pure garbage cars. Love how mine had an irritating vibration from the roof. Finally got sick of it and pulled the headliner to have a look... They never welded the crossbar brace across the middle of the roof, to the right side of the car. You could see they waved a MIG welder over there, but the two pieces weren't touching, much less welded together. Absolute crap.

Yeah but if you want it lay the cash and claim one right now the only way you're getting one is to buy Chris's whole car! Lol
