Thanks. Im going to the track tomorrow. It ran a 7.43 but with only a 1.68 60ft, this converter should help it move out a little quicker.
Ill try to get some engine shots later today.

Here is that underhood pic. I really want to swap to a super vic and a 4150, i think it would clean it up a lot.

I took it to the track and it ran an 8.11 on motor. I made one nitrous pass and my rev limiter was set wrong so it ran a 7.65. I went to test the rev limiter and had a nitrous backfire, blew the intake boot off and started a little fire. I ended up just putting it back on the trailer.

Thanks Kingc8r
I hope so BSmiff i really need to build the rear and do rear suspension. Im on bone stock rear control arms and 28 spline rear. Im also using a tiny fogger nozzle. I think a 4150 plate kit on a 225 would make a huge difference.

I also built the rear. Chromemoly bracing, 9" ends, narrowed 1.5" on each side. 35 spline mosers with a spool and 4.10s and 5/8 studs. Baseline double adjustable upper and lowers, baseline arb, and competition engineering coilovers.


I cut the floor out so id have plenty of room to work

Very cool car! I had a 95 GT Mustang and regret selling it now. Oh well live and learn. Supposedly it was converted over to LS power and subsequently wrecked.

Its in need of a tune for sure. It ran 8.11 last year on motor. I took it Friday and only made one pass with the new intake and rear setup and it ran a 9.17, cutting out and running really lean.

I kept having problems out of my dbw throttle body and having no start issues. I decided a dbc conversion was necessary. Heres the old setup.

I picked up a decent truck harness, computer, and starter for 120 bucks. I completely pulled it apart, and seperated all the pigtails and started building a harness to tuck the computer behind the air bag hole.
