    As The Title Implies -- All The Info As Per Pretty Much Every Aspect Is Below -- Motor Was In A 79 Capri That Was Totally Gutted and did 7.30s at 90s MPH in the 1/8th. Now Its in a Daily Driver Basically -- Yeah I know I need more gears in this car, and I know a Vic JR/Windsor SR Combo on the street is Meh when it comes to power band, but eh, its all I have to work with right now.

    Sorry for all the bs below, I tried to put the pertinent info first.

    Vehicle: 1986 Mustang GT, 5 Speed

    Engine: 1974 302 Block, Eagle Crank - H Beams - Ross Pistons (Flat Tops, Fly Cut) -- All Forged + Put Together With ARP Hardware, Standard Bore/Stroke, Childs & Albert ZGS Piston Rings, Clevite 77 Bearings, Felpro High Performance Gaskets, Melling HV/HP, Ultradyne Custom Cam -- 571/594 (Can't Find Cam Card, But I Remember That Info), Victor Jr Intake Manifold, Windsor SR.

    Exhaust: 1 5/8" Long Tubes W/ Copper Gaskets Into Catless H Pipe, Dynomax Bullets Into Flowmaster 40s, Ended With Flexible Exhaust Tubing Dumping Over Axle. Why Four Mufflers? Eh Honestly, Cops Really Hassle Everyone About Noise Around Here And That Is What I Had Laying Around -- Sounds Different, And Pretty Nice, Kinda Like A Mellow Version Of Spintech Prostreets.

    Nitrous: Nitrous Works Plate System 125 Shot w/ Purge Kit (Wet Kit).

    Rear: 3.27 Gears (Indeed I Need Something Steeper), UMI Lift Bars + Upper Control Arms, Boxed In Torque Boxes, Southern Outlaw Shop Heim Jointed Rear End bars (Attaches To Outside of Upper Control Arms), Pinion Snubber, Ford Racing Aluminum Driveshaft

    Steering: Flaming River Manual Rack + Pinion -- Quick Ratio + U-Joint Kit.

    Transmission: Rebuilt T-5 From G-Force -- This Is The 3rd Stang Its Been In -- I Sold The Other Two -- One Was Stock + Twin Turbo Setup (Junkyard Kit), The Other Was A Single T-78 On The Same Motor I Have Now, Tranny Has Held Up Pretty Well -- Granted It Hasn't Been Up Against Anything Powerful... Yet.

    Interior: Basically Stock -- Water Temp, Oil Temp, Oil Pressure, Two Fuel Pressure And Nitrous Pressure Gauges, Dual Wideband (Sensor In Each Header), Cobra Daytona Seats, G-Force Harnesses (Latch+Lock Style), Misc Switches, Connections, Bypasses, Etc For Fuel Pump, Pump Controller, Nitrous System, Etc.

    Hmm.. anyone? :shrug: Or am I going to be beating a deadhorse?

    14 Views -- 0 Replies; Well anyway -- I'm thinking like 300rwhp.. is that low or high or what? I usually underestimate. Just looking for something ballparkish. If anyone has a setup similar -- or knows of one. Let me know.

    Best Regards,
    Gered

    Eh -- I dont think fast is really the word. I think it MAY run low 13s high 12s if I'm lucky with the current gearing.

    Then again the first time out when I had 3.73s in the car (when I first put it together) the thing ran 11.57@118.

    So Meh -- who knows.

    Any other ideas? And No I do not have anymore cam info -- if I did I would have put it dow already. Ultradyne doesn't seem to have the info on hand either.

    Regards,
    Gered

    Interesting; I was thinking max low 12s with the juice in a full weight street car.

    Thanks for your thoughts though! -- Anyone else?

    Carb is listed under the fuel stuff -- AED Eliminator its basically a 650 worked over for 300 to 350 cid engines..

    http://aedperformance.com/SupMod.htm

    "Our new "Eliminator" carburetor is designed for 302-360ci engines in heavier cars or with tight converters. It features a CNC ported 650 main body mated to an 850 baseplate for good airflow for power, but smaller venturi sizing for exceptional acceleration. One Killer carburetor for small block Fords."
