Default Who says mustangs can't handle?

Hey guys, pretty new to the forum and I posted a build thread a while ago, but my plans have changed so I just decided to post a new thread. Well, I'm 22 years old, worked in a mustang tuning shop for about 4 years and now I work for Snap on tools. I've got a 2001 Mustang GT. The car is a dedicated autocross and track car. I've got the complete maximum motorsports suspension catalog on my car, along with their roll bar, cobra brakes all around, kirkey road race seats, 3.73's currently w/ torsen t2r, and full exhaust. The mod list is much longer, but it would take all day to write everything down. I'm currently in the middle of swapping engines. I've got an MMR mod 900 4.75L 11:1 CR shortblock, ported trick flow heads, comp stage 3 cams, and a reichard racing intake manifold with a dual blade cobra throttle body. The old engine is out and I'm waiting on a new oil pump pickup tube to come in and then the engine will be going in. Going to compensate with the lack of torque with a set of 4.56 rear gears. Anyways, here are some pictures, let me know what you think.

Car looks sick, I love the stance and the color combo.

Im guessing coilovers?

And ever consider putting a twin screw blower on it to make some low end torque?

Yep was going to earlier in the build, you don't ever see N/A mustangs anymore so I changed my mind. Plus I don't need a lot of power to autocross, I lose traction as it is already. The car has MM Race Coilovers on all 4 corners

4.56's would be steep...if I was only revving the engine to 6k. It will be revving a little closer to 8k. Speed in each gear shouldn't have a noticeable change.
Thanks! Late model sells the chin spoiler, it's off of an 03-04 cobra
