Missed a few comments, sorry.
how much higher is the boss intake going to take him? curious if a cervini mach 1 hood would fit over it
The boss is higher, I have a 3" cowl so I bet I'd clear a Boss as well.
The build is looking great Josh. The motor fits nicely in there. Do you have abs on the car? I'm curious what side you're going to put the air filter .
No ABS. Filter is on the driver side with a mutilated GT500 air box to fit perfectly. Cold air should pass over/under the driver headlight. Little bit of heat shielding from the back by the MAF housing.
thats the OEM 5.0 cam?
It's a stock 2013 Mustang GT 5.0
I have had buddies with manual VB
's in project cars before, and they all tend to get tired of messing with it. Everyone is different though. Having a manual VB
would motivate my desire to have just a full manual transmission.
I love driving manual and I'm considering it this winter. If I do I'll upgrade the half shafts. Lots of work, I'll have to see how the rest of the year goes with the MVB.
Power steering: I'm having the worst luck with my power steering. I fix a leak, replace the rack, replace a line, replace a line and now the reservoir cracks. Ok cool. I replaced it with a Moroso unit, no cracks. But with my luck it will probably melt away IDK. I like it, a little engine dress up.
Battery trunk switch! Doesn't work for some reason, Hmmm?
I was able to find a black clean looking ON/OFF 12V switch for the OD. Looks pretty stock-clean.
Also the red button on top of the Hurst handle, any guesses what it's wired up to?
Wheels & Tires: So I sold off my stock Mustang track pack wheels. Why? because they were all 19x9 and I wanted to buy a 19x10 for the rear for the wider tire. You can't sell two and buy two because the color is not the same. Sell all four! I found out that the aftermarket track pack wheels are 3 pounds lighter then stock. Saved 12 pounds!
I have a 1" spacer in front and a 1/8" in the rear to clear the parking brake cable. Honestly I could zip tie the cable and lose the spacer I guess. The front is a 255/30 and rear is a 295/30. I went with HANKOOK VENTUS V12. Nothing super great, good overall tire for summer and dry fun so it will do the job. Safe for wet day heading home if I get caught in the rain.
Aftermarket left, stock right. The wheel cap stickers are from ClintD. 5 for $15. Send him a PM.
Front with 1" spacer, not too bad
Lastly, working on little things. To name a few: Wire up gauge lights / clean up harness, Exhaust down pipes, Radio, smaller interior touches, Battery off switch and a couple other things.
This winter is body work and a possible paint job. Pink.
