I have put my car on an aggressive diet. Here I made room for the 417 Motorsports front tubular section.




I am also going to a manual rack and manual brakes.


You can see the new flaming river manual rack. I'm also ditching almost all of the factory wiring.

The new shortblock will be using the same cobra crank I ran last year. It is going in a fresh teksid block. The new custom 11:1 Racetec pistons are gonna be hanging a new set of Molnar Turbo rods. I will be using the same 38cc TF heads and a new custom set of cams that NA SVT spec'd. Here is the slightly modified RR intake I'm gonna run. I got rid of the Logan.

I'm a bit surprised that you're not going the 4V route but I really hope to see the 2V making power again.

This car will always have a 2v in it. I have a 2016 Mustang 5.0 also.

Seem to be finding ways to add weight back in.

No tensioner? I tried to run my belt like that at one point when I decided to get rid of powedsteering. I ended up throwing the pump and rack back on because it was eating belts or slipping them.

The belt is pretty tight. The vacuum pump has adjustment.

Bought a really sweet relay board to wire up everything I need.
