    just wondering what kind of tires your runnin on the back?, i see tires are spinning on video but just love to see exactly what kinda power car makes with a little more room coming out of that spin and hearing what she got. I am a foxbody lover and love to see any innovation with foxbodys what u have built looks like a engineering masterpiece, just love to see that **** opened up and screaming like holy hell:shrug:

    I was never really going for MAX HP with my car just wanted a fun street car and KB's make street cars fun. The A2A project was an attempt to control the high temps caused by KB's. I must admit that I should be making more power, and think I could be with an other than stock cam. I also didn't have the best situation at the dyno for making power. I think I'll have better numbers next spring.

    I hear ya, i liked the build and its actually pretty impressive that its still on the stock cam. I didnt realize that when i made the power comment. The air to air thing is cool, that was some serious fab work done that a ton of people(including KB staff) would have ran from.

    People do tend to get stuck on numbers too, i think the car would run pretty good at the track, if you could find a way to transfer all that tq to the ground that would be someting

    Not the best tires but they're new Falcon FK-452, 265-40-17 with 3:73 gears and 500ftpt the rubber has no chance. I need to address traction soon, I'm thinking 3:27's and NT555R drag radials 275-40

    Their Twin Screw is just a rebadged Lysholm....and they're only producing replacement blower upgrades for existing Modular Engine layouts ('03/'04 Cobra, 2nd Gen Lightning, GT500)...not pushrods and not complete kits.

    Man I love this thread. This is just absolutely amazing. I want to do this with my Kenne Bell but have the intercooler on top the supercharger under my hood scoop. Kinda like Subaru Setup.

    Killer car man! :nice:

    Since my manifolds are off I thought I would take some pics of the inside of the inside of intake where the 3" pipe was welded. When I did this project the first time I never got pics of these transitions.

    Here is the inside of the discharge side going into the GT-40 lower manifold.

    Here is the bypass flange that I cut and rewelded backwards to fit in that very tight spot.

    Here is the piece of angle I cut out of the original KB bypass flange.

    Inside of the drivers side manifold to pipe transition. After the welding I did alot of blending and grinding to make the transition smooth.

    I just want to give and update as my car is up and running for the spring. I'm now seeing 16.5 to 17 psi with my 8 rib pulley setup and smaller 2.5" KB pulley. I'm using one 9gph meth nozzle and hope to get a dyno run with my new setup soon. I just heard from another who saw this thread here and used it to build his own A2A congratulations to jj89fox I hope he will post up pics and results.
