    Wow that's alot of power there.. what does your torque look like?? and secondly are still running IRS or a Solid Live Axle?? Also what does your dyno sheet look like is linear or is it spiked?? I'm just curious because I have a 98 Saleen Cobra and your car is the only car that I think I would sell it for.. :hail2: :nice: also do you drag or road race??

    the peak boost comes in late in the RPM band, so it builds as you go along...so in a way it's spiked...torque was 535ft/lbs...thanks for the compliments and I havent tracked it yet b/c im still on the stock IRS w/ bushings and a brace...level 5's should be in later this week though :D

    WHOOAA really I would imagine that it's not. but yet I'm used to 500rwhp and 510wrtq but see it's all linear I open track but I bet it's about the same power to wieght ratio cause my saleen cobra only wieghs 3100lbs with me in it, but yea I would totally sell it for your baby :hail2: :D

    They are the FORD MOTORSPORT stainless hood pins that are in the FMS catalog. I installed them where the rubber bumpstops go in the front chassis clip and marked to the hood using a little bit of paint to mark the spot on the hood. Meassure twice drill once !!!

    I hope that helps some...

    thanks, but i've heard of a lot/ most of the guys who installed them where the rubber bumpstops are having trouble lining up the hood with the fenders with no more adjustment from the bumpstops, is there any way that you used, or can think of from experience that would ensure the hood lining up properly? thanks, Kyle

    Well...

    Kyle:

    The procedure I used to install my hood pins worked perfect as you can see from the pics. No hood alignment problems at all and the hood closes super easy. I can't guarantee it will work for you but it did for me, that is all I know... :nice:
