oh shut your mouth hole. we've been over this. you run your car without an intercooler and skinny tires and no track experience and tell me what net in the 1/4. im doin what i can with what i have at the moment lol. and im more concerned with swappin the motor in the hatch before i put more money into the mustang

only thing thats being used off that thing is the block. Didnt feel like not having a car for like 3-5 months so i bought it off ebay. Chris's guestimate is 5800ish for the engine build. the gforce t5 is 2200 for 500ft lb tq. and i paid 1800 for a brand new 8.8 31 spline axle kit and a aluminum drive shaft. So everything is going to be practicaly brand new. Axlekit should ship monday yaay.

well yeah, i just dont feel like listing all the small things that will be added. tires and the rear end are going to help alot considering i just ran a 18.692 @ 91.35 and a 16.502 at 89.17 lol. Wheel spin all of 1st gear like no matter what and a bit in second gear. it was bad... i kinda gave up after that and since chris broke his **** on the 3rd run i might of gotten a bit superstitious
