I am surprised you took the low road on this BOB but since you did, lets get to the facts- My statement regarding 3 people is fact... of current and past concourse judges. The three most prevalent posters here are the three Amigos, The P B AND J group and not referencing the childrens sandwich. You being one of them. As to why you would go off on a hissy fit about a simple little part I believe I have that answer. Do you have one?... Are you selling one?... Have you told someone you believe that part should sell for 500-1000$ or more? Your name came up regarding this, you can confirm or deny this. I dont want to speak for you. In the words of SGT Joe Friday.. Just the facts MAAM, just the facts. Look at the second post on this thread, there is a dollar value given of 1000$ There are some on here that reference you as the trusted source, so if they or yourself feels a part has a perceived value of that amount, as I said ... More power to them! Nothing exaggerated, just factual info. I frequent some of the largest gatherings that might have some of our cars present, such as the large auctions. If I have one of my cars entered or am with a friends car I watch and listen to peoples comments about things. The BARRETT- JACKSON auction For the past few years has a turnout of approx. 300- 350thousand people to anxiously see whats inside. In 9 days do all 350 thousand people want to see and ask questions about SHELBYS? No they dont! Do many thousands of people come take a look see and ask questions about our cars... Well... yes they do. Not one of them said... OOH LOOK! He has a c7 t stat on his car.

Here we are with N95s and another covering around our face.

Then you find these future casualties walking around, what's wrong with this device ???

Betcha it's effective if you encounter a spitting cobra
That is ignorant behavior- I was watching it yesterday on tv and saw a couple of ignorant GRAY BEARDS wondering the staging lanes with no masks and not a care in the world. That gene pool seems to get affected more then others, lack of frontal gray matter I suppose.

 My response was for the majority of car owners here that are not entering their cars in concourse competitions. Dont get it twisted there was nothing derogatory about my post whatsoever. There are 2-3 people on here that enter their cars in concourse competition or judge these cars, so spending 500-1000 dollars for a T-stat housing is great for those that are into that. I know someone that takes his cars to some very large shows and tells his story over and over that he searched the globe for some pieces to his car, internal and external, many parts cant or wont ever be seen. This gives him a warm fuzzy... We all know him and scratch our heads smiling in approval when the stories are told about these ORIGINAL parts he has collected, such as pistons, camshaft, lifters etc. His cars dont look, drive, sound, any better then using todays superior parts,  using 50plus year old parts appeals to that group of people and as has been stated before more power to them... Thats a positive not a negative! Now there are a few on here that actually work and drive their cars, myself included that have experience with building , repairing their cars. Doug has what appears to be more hands on experience with these cars then most. If he explains how something can be made to look like an original when painted and a hose slid over it... one should at least listen. This is where perception meets value. I have seen 10s of thousands of people looking at GT 500s over the past 45 years and cant recall anyone commenting on a semi visable T stat housing... Oh look he has a c7 housing.

I feel the same way... It will be painted over ,covered up with a hose, no one will see it or really care but its a good item to boast about telling your friends you have a correct one. Same can be said for people  that tell me they have an original Hipo Le Mans cam shaft or factory pistons in their engines ?  ;D There are some things that bring a warm fuzzy feeling to some. If they want to spend 500.00 on a T STAT more power to them. We all like something different.

Requesting suggestions..what would you do...?
Iím finally working on my KR that has been parked for 40+ years.
This is a low mileage car with the complete emissions setup.
After much thought ...I decided to built it the way I wanted and enjoy the car. 
I will be removing the emissions, keep the stock intake and carb.
The original exhaust manifolds will be removed and boxed with the complete emissions setup.

Engine will be balanced, adding ceramic free flow headers and a proper dual exhaust. 
The rest of the car will be bone stock on this rust free car.

Should I keep the stock cam grind or ?
Anyone have a real world experience with a CJ ?
Thank you
Fran
  Fran...  I have a similar project that has been sitting idle for the past 30-40 years, a very long time. I might need to have the dust and dirt tested by a dirt-ologist to tell exactly how old that dirt is. Its a 1968 KR vert- 4 gear-  3.50 detroit locker set up. Just got my engine back, its a 69 CJ THAT LOOKS ALL STOCK but makes 490 HP on the dyno. My engine guy said the Cobra Jet top end is limiting its breathing capabilities, its all he could get out of stock cj parts. So the question is why ask others what they would do, but rather we need to ask what you want to do? I am guessing because you own a big block that you like the performance it offers? Speed, sound , excitement... Get out there and enjoy your ride, Listen to your inner voice!

 I say buy it as well. If you are not sure about condition and options hire one of our in house experts for a little look see. Price of a plane ticket, lunch, cocktails etc will give you peace of mind and a great jump in, price point.

 Exhaust systems are engineered to fit an existing engine, car set up. A few key elements are engine size, horsepower, rpm, top end or low down torque, standard crappy bends or mandrel bends. Some restriction is needed for proper running engine in a certain parameter. One size does not fit all! Most all of your sound your looking for is within the crossover pipe... x pipe or h pipe and how many chambers your mufflers have. Good Luck!

 Dating site or not there are just some things that are better left unsaid. Over the years we have all had some incident that left us, with a should I say something or leave it alone. Like if your with some friends and buddy sharts himself, true story there.. do I say something or leave it alone. He had a large brown stain on his pants and I could not tell him, no other friends did either! He later said he was having some issues so we knew he was aware of things... Same can be said for ANY misgivings someone has with their cars. They are not asking for anyone to be an armchair quarterback, or asking for some ones negative overview they are just trying to sell their car! Over many decades of watching interactions with people and their cars one that got my attention was that the ones that condemned the loudest and longest of every ones cars, Hated when people said something about them and their rides. It is not a one way street... For every action there is a reaction.  Science 1 ooh 1

 Most of these cars were run hard and put away wet, that's what they were designed for... and makes them very special !  They were not designed to sit in the corner looking good, but rather wring out as much power, and smiles as a young man could have. This owner is just up front about it, most are not.

 I believe those are cherry bombs.
