What power did it put out?

I know it's stock and all, but it's for sure going to make a good driver.

It matched the peak HP number of the 2.3 in my TC, which was the bottom of the acceptable range I set before deciding to move forward with swapping it in. Torque delivery makes for quite a different driving experience and the 4.10’s help cover for the extra weight.

Looks like solid driver numbers to me.

TL;DR powertrain review:
Stock 4.6 4v longblock from a mkviii, long tube headers, 2.5" y-pipe to 3" single exhaust, CAI, Cobra intake manifold. T45, 4.10's in an 8.8

Sounds good. Decent power numbers for a basically stock 4.6 4V as well.

Now I'm kinda wishing I had done the TC bumper cover with the LX header panel when I had my car painted a few years ago. It looks better than the stock LX bumper cover.

I still stand by the fact that the 4v is one of the best sounding V8's ever.

You're still a dick.
It's Gumby's fault.
