Today Installed a new cobra clutch kit assembly with new MM clutch cable and firewall adjuster,aluminum quadrant.I had another flywheel to install which was good because the one on the car had a broken tooth gear.Also checked the rear main seal that turned out to be still in good shape. The leak was at the oil pan dripping down in the bell housing he sealed that up, we'll see ! The clutch feels better to me I like where it releases now and the pedal feels not has stiff. I like the firewall adjuster makes it easy enough to adjust if needed and not having to go under the car ! The tranny parts where pretty dirty from not being off the car in 46k miles but a little bit a brake cleaner took care of that ! Thanks "Shifter Lou" for all your help ! Here's some pics ....

probably less than your wifes v-sixer.....lol seriously, depending on the dyno, if it's a dyno jet, 250-260.......I did a gt-40 intake, gt-40 heads and tfs 1 cam for a guy and his put out 266 on a dyno jet.....so you might be a tad under that with stock cam.

A dyno is a heartbreaker lol. But 258.6 at the wheels is my guess.

I'd say that's pretty good. You should be a good race with the V6. I'd bet on the fox being the lighter car.

Nice Sporty, great job on that.

I'm in the same boat, both bikes and the Mustang are waiting in the garage for spring to finally get here. What sucks yet is we didn't get a good heavy rain yet to wash all the sand off the road from this winter. Bikes don't like sand lol.
