I didn't notice the propeller, only what appears to be a can-type combustor chamber.

Correct. Can-annular combustion.

Yes, those are C-130 props.
No, that is not my garage. It's my shop at work. It's nice to bring your car inside during the winter to melt off all that crap that builds up in the wheel wells.
And to do your own oil changes inside in February.

FYI, I am a jet engine mechanic, lol.

One of my uncles is an aircraft mechanic, but IIRC he's more used to piston-engined aircraft.

Looking at lowering the back to match the front. Also want to install 2.73s in the back before winter. I can't forget to swap out the gear on the VSS so the speedometer reads proper.
Maybe look around and get some weight reduction done.

It's a ford. vss is done in software via correction factor on tire size or on some obd2, transmission gear.

They didn't eliminate the VSS on Panthers until 2003. 03+ need the software/ tune to correct it.
All -02's have a VSS with interchangeable gear.
