Testing out the new line lock!

The first thing we have to do, is let it breathe better. We install a cold air intake by Ford Racing.

Before shot.

Factory manifold with stock blower removed.

Whipple vs stock blower.

Stock throttle body vs single blade monster.

Whipple blower mounted.

Swap over throttle body motor to new throttle body.

Modify front cover to make clearance for larger harmonic balancer.

Views of different balancers.

Dual pass intercooler by Afco.

Installation complete.

Let’s put bigger brakes on!

Getting ready for new caliper mount.

Mark for area that speed sensor will occupy.

Housing now modified for needed clearance.

Look nice with the Shelby wheels, and stops well too.
(yes, picture is rotated 90 degrees clockwise)

Gotta have a line lock!
