imo the 3.73 were the best upgrade i have done. all though i dont want to say that out loud so the rest of my car dont get p'ed off at me. yeah with some worn shocks your teath maybe rattling a bit. but it is so worth it. i just went with some lower dollar kyb shocks on mine.i thinki paid 170 for all 4 corners. nothing fancy but imo they are better than stock.

An old friend of mine had them in his 71 monte.I thought I was cool as s#!t but then again I never drove it myself...how cool would it be to have a dd that could pull a tire off the ground?!...wonder what the slowest 60ft you could pull one is?..hmmm...

i really love them to. matter of fact thats why i was gonna get the weiand 174 in the beggining of the thread. i still actuall have/use some of the stuff i bought. like bigger fuel pump msd btm and boost gauge. i just couldnt fork up enough dough to get the rest of the stuff. i got a whole lot more the route i went for less money. and its probably a safer route i went anyways. but one day i will own a roots!!!!!!

That's a nicely done up blown Mustang.
Just needs some bigger exhaust and a little fine tuning.

Yeah that exhaust is tiny. There is just something about the whine of a roots blower. It is almost orgasmic!

I actually saw a weiand blower for sale in my area but it didn't give any specifics on what it would fit.

See the video I posted.

The 671 is way overkill on a 302. They are really designed for bigger cubes. But you can pulley them down pretty good.

The 174 weiand fits but its made for a carb setup.

There you go, an intake to fit, a blower drive system, under drive them to produce boost levels your engine can handle and you will have one bad @ss looking Mustang.
You can even make an 8:71 work.


You should have seen some of the generating engines in the power plant I was the superintendent of.
We had turbos that measured about 3.5' to 4' across and a roots supercharger that was around 3' x 4'.
Our "hot rod" diesel engine had twin turbos plus a supercharger and produced 3,960 Hp at 900 RPM. God only knows what the torque is.

wholy chit! a 4' roots. that would make on hell of a dinner table! i was at a car show a few months ago and this dude had a 16:71 that was the biggest i have seen. i asked him how much hp he was cooking. he told me very casually " ummm i dont know maybe 2500" lol.

The heck of it is that the roots only served to spin up the twin turbos on that engine. Once they were up to speed, then the roots just idled along. Those twins measured about 3' across though.

That thing cracks me up!
I blipped the throttle just once and it raised the front tire about 1" off the ground and blew both head gaskets.


No YouTube video, but here it is on the FM Site

yeah i got a chuckle out of it to.
it looks similar to a locomotive engine. i did see it is used for those in some applications. i used to build locomotives right out of high school. i dont remember a while lot about the motors. i do remember the pistons looked like 5 gallon buckets. and the cam shaft was about 15' long.

The FM engine is a two stroke with dual opposed pistons in each cylinder.
So for our 12 cylinder engine it had 24 pistons.
We also had a smaller 10 cylinder FM that actually came out of a locomotive.
It was N/A and made around 1,600 HP.
I believe the pistons measured about 9" across in the 12 cylinder model.
We also had some older Worthington engines that had an 18" bore and a 3 foot stroke.
They ran at 450 RPM and developed 4,190 HP.

at 4000 hp the torque is probably off the chart. i would bet you 5 figures easy or more.
18" bore is huge.

Yep, big old slow chug a lug.
Burned around 275-300 gallons of fuel per hour producing 3000 to 3500 kWH.
Quietest engine we had too.

Finally put my other headlight in. I put one in like 2 weeks ago then got side tracked. So I was sporting 1 nice light and 1 junker. Lol. I took it out again and still running good and no water.

Now that I'm driving it I have to fix my turn signals. That's the only thing not working right. I have 2 burned out bulbs.the bulbs are burned out kitty corner. But I get nothing when I flip them on either direction. Should I get some kind of solid turn light or a fast blinker? But when I turn the hazards on I do get the other 2 corners blinking. But I guess ill change the bulbs first as they need it anyways.

I noticed today that my car clears my driveway by about 1/2" I used to bottom out my old exhaust all the time. So when I put the new exhaust on I made sure it was tucked up tight. And I am glad the subframes clear. I was a little worried.

You got the water issues solved.
Nice eyes, the better to locate the competition with eh?
Blown bulbs can make your turn signals do funny things, depending on how badly they are blown and whether or not any small amount of power or ground can still get through them.


I wish we could both afford the Air Ride suspension. That would make bumps and driveways a non issue and increase the suspension tuneability.

i actually wanted the smoked heads. but i went budget and got the 79.99 set from lrs.

yes the water issue is finally resolved. it feels so get to able to finally get in there and rip through the gears. now im goona start getting her prepped so i can take it to the track once. i dont have my seat belts all the ways in yet. also my drive shaft loop. and i need to find some 15" rims to mount my slicks on. i got a really *****in cordless snapon impact. so i can swap the tires at the track if i want easily.. all i want to do is break into the 12s and i will be satisfied. for now.

Yeah it may be hard to find even with the new lights.


Can you tint/smoke the lights yourself with some light window tint?


I'm thinking I want to shoot for 10's or faster. If my nads don't shrink to much that is.
There's not much that can compare with the adrenaline rush of power and speed.

Not to speak of your nads but I bet they could handle it. I would love to have a 10 sec car to. But I don't think that will be my vert. I am probably gonna be required to have a cage just cause its a vert. But I can probably get away without at the track I'm going to. Who knows maybe in a few years when the new car smell wears down ill throw the cage in there. It may get in the way of the car seat though.lol

Yeah I could tint the hl but they are kind of growing on me the way they are.

I can't wait till you can get back to working on your car. It's gonna be a beast. May I ask how did you get injured? If its personal or something I'm fine with that.
