Congrats man. I hear amazing things about Whipple!
off subject but it reminded me of when I met Caroll Shelby with one of his super snakes
at Z-Max Dragstrip when it was first opened.

Well, everything I listed cost me $10,000 and I have not even considered internals. With a smart head and not to heavy foot my stock block will last many many years.

Oh yeah, Ill be getting on it. Luckily this is not my daily driver and it is my 12'th Stang and I am 40 now so I am a little more refined then when I was a kid As long as I keep the tach out of the red, the boost at a respectable level and keep an eye on my air/fuel gauge it will last a number of years. I am not foolin myself, I will be building a forged bottom end but not for another 5 years or so. I have plans for a 6 speed tranny, Wilwood front and rear brakes and then a complete disassembled professional paint job before I do the engine. Well, as long as I dont kill it first

At the wheels with over 400 ft pounds of torque at 2000 rpm. As soon as it's all together and the crap outside melts I am taking it to Dez Racing to get it dyno'd. I'll post the actual specs when I have them. Unfortunately not till April

It uses the same factory fuel pump and wiring harness that's in the GT500 as opposed to the "boost a pump" setup that comes with re KB The parts were made in conjunction with Ford Racing which makes it a no brainer for me. I also love Whipples 10 Rib pulley setup way better than Steeda's.
