I like the seats and where you mounted the 2 boost a pumps, now you need to get a rear seat delete to cover all the back up

That is kickass as usual, Steve. Cannot wait to see it finished. I hope you can shoot some cool video of her too.

What are you hoping to run with your new setup?

There are so many IFs and reality can be very different from theory. But...if we get anywhere close the target 800 rwhp and torque (fuel delivery will be the weak link) and if the tires, suspension setup do their job, and the 3 speed race transmission and transbrake does what it is supposed to do....and if the digital boost controller adjusts the boost levels per gear as
programmed ...then the goal is to get as close to 10.00 without going into the 9s. It's a whole other world of certifications, licenses, and medical physicals in the 9s. None of this may happen, the first time at the track because the tuning is getting real complicated. We may not use the transbrake at first. Right now it's all just theory.....First priorities are to be safe and try not to break anything

How much are you going to have in her when it's all said and done?
Very rough estimate. Just the main stuff

engine 7K
transmission 7K
turbo 6K
fuel system 2.5K
gauges, interior (roll/seats) 2.5K
suspension 1.5K
tuning 2K
Rims/tires (street M&H 325 DRs, strip MTs on Bogarts) 4K


Still cheaper than the Viper I had before and way more fun. Plus would have cost double to do similar to the Viper. Mustang is great car to mod. If car get anywhere near its promise, next will be a minitub and slip some really big meat back there (390s+).

Was married for 23 years (widow). Have a 25 year old son in his 8th year (9 year program) at Texas A & M. I'm just a working stiff like everybody else, putting my pathology degree to work, the best I can. Teach college full time. work medical forensics part time.

Lance just told me your motor came in yesterday. Tried to get hold of Stephen in N.O. No contact yet.
