Was over at my friends garage hanging out with the guys we were all working on our cars in Pat's shop, Dave (RSstang) even stopped in and said hello.We worked on my brakes installed new powerslot rotors,Hawk pads,stainless steel brake lines,Caliper Sleeves Stainless Steel also all new front and back bearing with seals, the brake pads on the driver side it was worn down to the steel almost, diffidently needed to be changed. We had some problems bleeding the brakes but we finally figured it out and got the pedal nice and firm again ! Doing the rear brake shoes next week, Had a good time ! Here's a couple pics..







Next thing for the "RedFox " this fall is King Cobra 10.5" Stage 2 Clutch Kit Package !

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 ....







Parts cleaned up and installed cobra clutch kit !











This fall the new rear Steeda control arms going in and this winter the stock rims are getting powder coated !

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.
