Cool to see that your still with the same car after so many years Scott. Few questions, did you ever get it down the 1/8th before you started the major overhaul of everything? What did it weigh before and what is your target weight? Looks good!

Good to see you Dave! It's been awhile.

The 1/8th stock or with just the turbo kit and nothing else?

Weighed 3080lbs without mean. Looking for that with me. Bought some brand new Diamond Pistons from a local guy with wrist pins for $490.

Yeah 1/8th stats right before you started the tear down. I bet it trapped well, I had my old GT to 2,995lbs with a 1/4 tank with all the factory accessories before I sold it

I'll have to look. Run I ran it I have several issues. A tight converter, wastegate issues, and a bad ecu. I trapped [email protected] with all those issues. I got all that fixed and it ran 150x better but never made it back to the track before the trans went. I think the 1/8th was 98mph?

I now deleted the rear seat, outlaw k member, racing seats, spool, fuel cell, fiberglass hood, dumped downpipe, sound deadening, and all that jazz.

Nice, I know you have coil overs in the front. Keep an eye out for a thread I'm going to make when I have time about how to install polyurethane isolators on coil over Springs. It makes them ride sooo much better and quieter

I will. But honestly this car already sounds like a Sherman tank. Everything is solid bushing in the rear and now going to a rear c/o setup. It's not built to be a Lincoln haha just has to go fast. Gotta beat Pate at the track :p with my street car.

I'd do the same on a Cobra too. But at your average joe 01 GT it doesn't bother me. Pictures of your new whip?

Yes sir they are. BNIB Diamond flat tops. Should yield around 11.8:1 CR. Should really help with getting the boost up to 16-20psi. Figured with e85, a2w, and some safe tuning it should run pretty well.

Fabbed some COP stands today for the intake. Bought some coupling nuts and drilled out the threads. I then cut them down to fit snuggly under the COP tab.

Not really sure anymore to be honest.

Scott that's a really nice mock up. Your guy should have no problem making you something nice from that. My grandfather was always great at making mock ups and drawling up plans. He showed me how to do it when I was a kid. His projects always turned out great because of his meticulous preparation. I wish I had better welding skills and some metal working tools. I have limited fab experience but my last exhaust I did at home. It turned out nice considering I completed it without a welder and it was not prefabbed unit for my car. I used mac lt's cut before the ball flange to keep it a true 3" collector, custom 3" X-pipe I had made for my last set up unfortunately not mandrel bent pipe. Some summit mufflers that look like flowmaster knock offs. 3" tail pipes from the muffler back for a 94 5.0. It went over the axle fine but was a couple inches short. I used 3" to 4.5 clamp on dynamax tips with a rolled lip to bring it out passed the bumper. I had to cut off the hangers on the tail pipes since they were in the wrong place. Then using regular muffler clamps and some flat steel stock I was able to relocate the hangers to correct position like the stock exhaust. The other techs at work were surprised how well it turned out. Point being it feels good to fab or design something that works well yourself. I want to get a decent small welder and get better at welding. Plus some metal shaping and working tools and work on my fab skills. Building something with your own hands is very satisfying. I've considered going back to Wyotech and taking their chassis fab course.

What are you using for a TB? On my TFS I have the oval plenum and run an Accufab Single blade TB for the 98 Cobra. I had to make a cable bracket and use a cable for the 98 Cobra. I had to look forever find the cable. They sell 2 single blades one is a little smaller but I got larger one that was called the special single blade. With the 11.8:1 C/R how much timing can you run safely even with E85? What is a2w?

This a pic of my TB

It is a pretty rewarding feeling for sure Jive. Lots of time,effort, and thought put into it. I too wish I was better at fabbing and welding. I can weld but not like the guy who fabs my stuff. I'm too particular with this car to try and weld anything. I want it to look good. haha.

I have the 96-98' Cobra Ellipse T/B bc I got a great deal on it. So it's the smaller one. I can also upgrade to the oval later on it need to be but I doubt I'll have to.

Bringing my materials and drawings to the shop next Friday and I was told within the next two weeks my car will be started on as well.
