MustangCRZY302 All back together and running strong. Don't think I'll be racing anymore this year, gonna try to tweak some suspension to get a better launch. 1.9 60fts ain't cuttin it.

99% back together. just have to tighten everything down under load, install new brakes, bleed brakes, and fill with fluid.

31 Spline Moser axles, Moser girdled cover, 03/04 Cobra Differential, welded axle tubes, welded and reinforced torque boxes. should help with the 60fts, shooting for 1.6's

I'll be disassembling/reassembling the rear this Saturday, then sunday welding up the torque boxes, and hoping to have enough time to get rear end back in car. If not this weekend, definitely next weekend it will be up and running. Possibly going to take it a Track rental in Nov. My hope is to be able to run NMRA next season at the local tracks.

MustangCRZY302 1 of 2 options im deciding on, 347, OR 408 built for boost... not quite sure yet.

I was running 3.55's, but since I'm building the rear, im stepping up to a 3.73 to get some more low end out of it. (stock gear for the car was a 2.73)

Bwinkelsas NICE! i smell 331, 347? anything of that nature by chance? you useing the factory cobra 3.55 gears as well or something else?

MustangCRZY302 Here's how she sits now:



New Gears coming today, rebuilding rear-end as bulletproof on Saturday, welding torque boxes sunday, and reinstalling

I think so! I do know, if i put a set of heads on this setup, I'd be around 475/480 at the tires, but my shortblock wouldn't like that very long lol
