    Crane cams aluminum roller rockers
    Hardened pushrods
    FRPP lifters
    Comp cams timing chain and sprockets

    Cooling:

    3 core radiator
    DC Control infinitely variable fan controller (best 115 bucks I EVER SPENT).
    180 F mr gasket thermostat
    Volvo 3000 CFM radiator fan keeps engine at 180 degrees at all times
    Water pump replaced with less than 8000 miles on it

    Electrical:

    Optima red top battery (less than 4 months old)
    Battery in trunk kit installed
    130 Amp 3G alternator

    Suspension:

    Flaming river manual rack and pinion with standard 15:1 ratio (power steering pump and lines removed for weight reduction and NO I did not keep the stock rack and just pulled the pump, thats the ghetto way of doing things, this is a true manual rack).
    Strange engineering 10 way adjustable front coilovers and shocks
    90/10 lakewood rear shocks
    mega bite Jr rear lower control arms
    Granatelli adjustable upper control arms
    Pinion snubber set at maximum height (no snubbing but you can adjust it)
    Front bearings replaced
    Front rotors resurfaced and pads replaced less than a year ago, brake lines purged


    Drivetrain:

    Resurfaced flywheel
    Centerforce dual friction clutch with less than 500 easy miles on it
    Brand new cobra spec T5 transmission with less than 500 miles on it
    Brand new aluminum driveshaft and U-joints with less than 500 miles on them
    3.73:1 gears and new seals and fluid replaced in rear end



    Wheels and tires:

    Weld racing 15x8 rears
    Weld racing 15x3.5 fronts
    Brand spanking new front 165 skinnies just installed
    MT ET streets 275/60/15 in rears with plenty of tread life (never tracked these tires, maybe 300 miles on them just cruising around thats it).

    Gauges:

    Autometer tachometer
    Autometer Water temp
    Autometer Oil Press
    all functional gauges

    Data logging:

    I meticulously re-wired this car with Innovate LC1 wideband and 4 channel input box for logging RPM, TPS and AFR, ready to go just plug into your laptop and log.

    Misc:

    HO Fibertrends 3" cowl induction fiberglass hood (unpainted)
    Sound deadening removed for weight reduction
    Front swaybar removed for weight reduction (this is a drag car)
    Installed emergency cutoff switch in rear to make it track ready to pass tech
    Heavy 2 gauge crankin' audio cable routed to rear for extra juice and less power rob from alternator (spent a lot of time on this)
    Prothane engine mounts (awesome peices)

    Audio:

    JVC headunit (nothing fancy)
    2 x 5 1/4" pioneer front speakers
    I did not want an uber sound system because this car is light and I wanted to keep it light

    Seals:

    Almost all seals have been replaced this includes,:
    head gaskets with felpro
    Water pump seals
    Oil pan seals
    Front and rear one peice main seals
    valve cover seals
    Intake manifold seals both upper and lower
    TB gaskets
    etc... I forgot basically every seal in this car



    The cons:

    Needs bodywork and paint, thats first thing. Interior is in good shape but there are a few scratches here and there that could be fixed easy. The body is the main problem, it has rust and will probably need to be cut out or just sandblasted and bondo'd back over. stock tach does not work (who cares, there is an autometer tach with programming shift light so...)

    Tires do rub in the rear a little bit (they are very tall) but that can be easily fixed by shimming the rims with some spacers. I do not have time to do this because I work and have to take care of a baby and wife.

    Other than that the car has given me ZERO problems, the thing is dead reliable as all 5.0s are. Will fire up in dead of winter or heat of summer.


    Car is good for low 12s easily with a proper driver, I do not have slips of passes like this. But it is well known that with these mods you should be able to turn out bottom 12s when properly launched and driven.

    This car has served me well, I took care of her and she took care of me. I do not want to sell her but I have to because I have another baby on the way. I am accepting offers, and SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY. Please do not waste my time, I have a 7 month pregnant wife and I dont have time to give people joy rides all day. If you want the car, let me know how much you are willing to offer and if you want more pictures or not.

    Thanks and PM me if interested in this fantastic muscle car.



    There is easily over 8-10k (probably more $#@! I lost count) worth of mods in this car with labor.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I dont know, it means so much to me that I would feel stupid putting a number down. I just need to see a few offers to get an idea. If I can recover 40-50% of what I put into it I would be ok with that. The car is fully functional, it's not a deadbeat turd. The thing is fun to drive and the parts alone are worth a lot of money.
