Project Mustang Build

My kid is helping one of his freinds sort out a hatchet fab job on a twin turbo Mustang. Removing the entire exhaust system and intake system, replacing all the carbon steel and aluminum and silicone hoses with stainless steel and clamped fittings, building a newe intake manifold.

Some pix follow:
First of the carnage hatchet job by a "professional" in the business.

Re: Project Mustang Build

And now the start of doing it right. My kid drew it all up in Mastercam, Cut, formed, bent, welded this all up himself. Should be done in a week or two. Will post pix and a dyno sheet after its done. Was making 700 horsepower before.
The scoop looking thing is actually the point of turbo piping connection to the intake. It will all be under the hood.

Re: Project Mustang Build

I think that right now, he's only looking for a couple more hundred. Maybe 900 total. They are doing bigger injectors and will remap.

Re: Project Mustang Build

The car then went to a buddy of my kid - Rocky Troxell. Yanked it all apart, and went full NHRA legal chassis. I think 7.80 frame. Not sure. I was by Rocky's a few weeks ago and the car was just getting finishing touches.

You may enjoy looking through Rocky's facebook page:
