Picked up front K member from being powder coated. Looks good. I wish MM offered alternate colors. Maybe they do but I didn't order it from hem directly. Got to work on the rear suspension this weekend. C clip eliminator axles in. Mocked up the rear disc brakes. Looks good. Decided to paint the rotors. Pics show them not finished as of yet. Still need to remove the paint from the braking surface.

well, not much progress as of late. Took the family on vacation and been a little busy at work. Been considering and finally have decided to add a some forced induction. I've always been impressed with the Kenne Bell blowers for a long time. Been reading up on the pros and con with centrifugal blowers as well. I'm not looking for max HP. Just something that's reliable and not terribly difficult to set up. I know that there are millions opinions but I am interested in them.
Thoughts?

Probably better off getting a used Vortech unit as the KB as not nearly as efficient and they gave up on the old pushrod 5.0 long ago.

I get what you are saying. I had a couple friends with the KB back in the mid 90's and I just love the way they respond off throttle and the easy of installation
makes it appealing. There is a speed shop near me that has made arraignments to have 30 units made for the early 5.0's. I went ahead and pre-purchased one. I had already planned a small nitrous kit so I'll redirect that energy towards cooling intake air temps.

Been a little while since I updated. Still waiting on the Kenne Bell blower. Hoping for an update and delivery date tomorrow.
Rear suspension and under body all painted. Needed to get the car off the lift so I can get my 12 GT ready for smog.
I mounted some Weld Prostar 15x10 wheels on the back. Well, they rub on the brake calipers. Read a bunch out grinding this and that but not really interested in grinding anything. I put a 5mm spacer but that wasn't enough. Tried adding washers that were about 2.5mm and still rubbing. It clears with the two 5mm spacers. So I think at this point my best option is to use a 10mm+ spacer. I'm not comfortable with the amount of lug stud threads that I'll be sacrificing so I'll be pulling the axles to install longer studs and a spacer.
I am open to other suggestions that don't involve purchasing different wheels. I like the wheels and even with the spacer they don't stick out much at all.

been awhile not a whole lot of progress as of late. The front K member has been replaced with the MM K member. Should be getting all the suspension mounted up within the next few weeks. I just need to powder coat the control arms first. The Kenne Bell Blowzilla should be shipping next week. I have since decided to go with a big bore Dart SHP block for fear of the stock block coming apart under the boost. Since I'm doing that I figured I'd bump up to the 363. I'm also gonna lose the World Parts Iron heads and go with an aluminum set. I'm not sure what set I'm gonna go with at this point. Any suggestions. Need to pass Ca. smog.

Pretty sure AFR has 50 state legal heads. Good call on the DART block, a stroker with a blower with a stock block is just futile... might as well just leave the engine stock and supercharge it as the block is still the weak point.

For the heads... get in touch with Ed Curtis at FTI and have him spec you a head/cam combo and you should be good to go there.

Thanks for the suggestion... I'll reach out to him. I'll need to pick the heads/cam then the pitons for a suitable compression ratio and valve clearance. Ill need a set of pistons to step up to 363.
I know the must thing to do is to go with the Dart block. So that's necessary money. From there the money starts to fall in the prudent category. I don't need to squeeze out every last drop of HP but I don't want to waste an opportunity by not taking advantage of the combo.[COLOR="Silver"]

You're fortunate to have the job/funds to buy everything you need to do the project the right way.

Get it running ZOMG! Can't wait to see it, like I said at the start of this thread, 91GT was my first Stang and would love to see a survivor done proper.

Been looking at getting a transmission to handle the horsepower. Locally got a couple options. Been considering a TKO 600 or a T56. There are couple options locally. I cant get my hands on a new 10 spline Ford Cobra T56 for about $2K or a 14K mile TKO 600 for $1400. I already plan on getting a safety bell housing regardless.

Don't run a TKO unless you like shifting a dumptruck. If you can afford it get a Magnum. If not I'd strongly consider an Astro A5.

Everything is out of stock. I asked them about an Astro A5. I was told that all the parts that they were waiting on for the last 7 months have already been pre-purchased and couldn't give me a time frame when I could expect to be able to get one. Otherwise, yes, I would consider an A5.

Can't get a magnum anywhere? Have you considered a built automatic? Car will be faster with the auto. Silverfox does real good AODs or you can convert to a AODE/4R.
