Default My Build List I Think.......

Well I made a build list on AM wish they had some more social linking options than just email link its silly.

Some might ask why don't I just put a Boss 302 Crate engine in, I am partial to keeping the original block with the car....

Few other things will be going on like gauge pods, exterior styling and custom striping.

I am building this car up for show and track day fun at Seattle International Raceway. Plus I will be keeping this car well forever no way I am ever going to sell it, if it breaks restore it

Engine
  • Boss302 Intake Manifold
  • Comp Cams Stage 3 Camshafts
  • Boss 302 Cylinder Heads
  • Boss 302 Valve Springs
  • Boss 302 Exhaust and Intake Valves
  • Boss 302 Timing Chain Tensioners
  • BBK 85mm Throttle Body

Suspension & Drivetrain
  • KONI Yellows Shocks & Struts
  • Boss 302S Front Control Arms
  • Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates
  • Driveshaft Shop Carbon Fiber One Piece Driveshaft
  • Ford Racing 3.73 Gears
  • Steeda Strut Tower Brace
A lot of suspension work has already been done, see signature.

Wheels
  • Fogestar CF5 Monoblock Gunmetal Wheels

I have debated that or twin turbo's but I think I just want to get the most out of her pushing right to the limit of FI or turbos. So I do not think ill ever do it. I have future plans of picking up a Saleen Mustang, I want to see what they will do with the 2015+ models. Get one of those down the road with FI and everything all done from the start.

That is a cool looking build, but the engine portion is more expensive than adding a blower, and the blower will make more power.

You are most likely right :P I am not sure why I don't want to do a blower but for some strange reason I want to see how far it can go without one.....

I vote FI also. With that setup, you'll still have blown 3V GTs walk your car all over the place.

i think an NA build with serious power would be awesome. But, our 4v GTs are absolute monsters from the factory, add a blower and you can walk on almost any car
