I don't plan on racing it competitively, just for fun at the strip on fridays. It will also be my experimental car that I attempt to make fiberglass pieces for and do custom engine modifications (building my own IM etc.) without being too worried about really F'ing it up. I hope to get a lot of knowledge of fabrication, racing, and driving by doing this.
Before I list my questions I wanted to ask if any of you have any advice for a complete beginner at drag racing.
-Where's a good place to find used racing parts for SBF's?
-What do you think a stock engine, stripped out, street tire fox/94+ stang can run?
-Where's a good site for info/forums about drag racing?
That's all I can think of for now. I'm sure I'll have tons later though.
Thanks in advance,
SN95 Body's weigh more then the Fox Body Chassis does.
Mod motors are more expensive to build
95-98 non pi headed cars are slower then a 5.0L to start with
I have to admit I have entertained the thought of a 95-98 GT with PI heads with a Kenne Bell Blower set-up around the 400whp mark. Fox bodies are to the domestic world what civics are to the import crowd.
