Without photos, you are just teasing us. :hysterical: If you have trouble posting photos, grab a 13 year old and they will walk you through it (worked for me).

 

Who did the work on your car?

 

As to the traction issues, you may want to do some additional work on your suspension with a Watts Link of at least an adjustible panhard bar, and control arms, upper and lower. Regardless what else you do to it, you are going to have trouble getting that much power to the ground. But, if you are going to have trouble, that is pretty nice trouble to have.

 

Congratulations of what you have done so far. Looking forward to the photos.

 

Jim

:hysterical2: Now that's funny Jim.

 

 

That's a great list of mods you got punky. Take lots of care :shift: , she'll bite you when you least expect it.

I couldn't help but noticed that your from Nova Scotia, you wouldn't happen to be living in the HRM would you? If you are keep an eye out for an 08 Grabber Orange Convertible (mine). By the way what colour is your Shelby? As for centering your rear end, as was mentioned before, a WATTS Link will definately keep rear inline with your front and it also improves the handling of your car.

hey wilson what size pulley are you running and did you change gears

thx paul

 

that's 3.25" It's too much for the stock tires as it is.. Will turn up boost for track.

 

I think that changing gears (stock is 3.55) is pretty much a waste since the power that is made with the kb is very brutal down low rpms. it would only make tire spin worse.

 

money would be better spent on DR's or adj shocks to get the car to plant the tires better.

 

but on a car that is raced more than street driven, a 3.73 might help some with a 28" slick

HEY AVIATOR , MY ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION WERE DROPPED 1/2 IN :headscratch: , I WOULD NOT CUT MY HOOD .THEY DID A GREAT JOB WITH THE AFTERMARKET MOUNTS AND THEY MADE ALUMINUM SPACERS FOR THE TRANSMISSION IT ALL LOOKS FACTORY WITH NO HOOD MODS. :baby:

 

You are correct, i do believe that you pointed that out to me once before.

 

Thanks for the updated pics.

 

Have you DYNOED this beast yet?

 

I think AGENT IAN wants to know the size of your pulley. :eek5:

Are you running 94 Octane Fuel? Also is this the tune from Whipple? I hear that Jon Lund of Jon Lund Racing is the MASTER tuner when it comes to these cars. With all that you have sunk into your ride you might want to contact him for a custom tune. That is my plan of action.
