Junky { labor,labor,labor and more labor##
dudeman { labor,labor,labor and owning a truck and trailer##
the situation {labor,labor and more labor##
Pipes {alittle labor, alot of laughs and #### talking##
Brendon {supervising,labor and #### talking##

AND BIG THANKS TO DBRODS for the custom turbo kit and chassis fab work!!!

Without their help I would be screwed!!

Things are coming to the end!! Once the car is back from Jon's here in the next few weeks it will be time to put the car back together.


Talked to THE DRIVESHAFT SHOP about the driveshaft. They spec'd a 4' aluminun shaft with billet trans yoke,solid joints and strange 1350 style pinion yoke!! Just have to measure and that takes about 3 weeks to get the shaft.

Im gonna call up north race cars and order their race disc brake setup for the 8.8 running sn95 10.6 rotor out back. This kit does not push the rear tires out a inch on each side like the 93 cobra or stock 5 lug rear end. The guy sells moser 31 spline axles as well. Then Im gonna probably buy a cobra 31 spline diff for the 8.8 and a diff brace cover. Then order some drag radials...

And thats really about it.. Hope to have her fired up in the next month and on the road shorty after!!

Should be nasty!! Right now I'm just building it to have fun and roll race. It's the only racing that goes on I'm my area. Later plans are to pull the t56 and run a rossler th400 with the 2.10 first gear and Neal chance convertor. Then have some fun!! Might upgrade the turbos to 76's then. The motors limits is around 2000hp. Will never push it that hard though. Want it to live a long happy life.

No doubt....

Nothing like an aerodynamic 2800lb coupe flat out on the highway with over 1000rwhp.

You sir have bigger balls than me.

Been working on interior stuff!! trying to knock out the things I cant to make it go together quicker when she gets back. My wife bought me brand new upholstery for my factor seats!! So I stripped the seats down and started recovering them. Thank god my boys in the shop have kickass hog ring tools!! I had to order another driver seat low frame and seat brackets. I guess this car had the typical mustang gangsta lean and someone tried to fix it. Did a crap job. Anywa here are before and after pics
