Finally getting a start on my car mods

Bit the bullet and ordered my FSWERKS kit this week. Should be seeing it by the end of next week. Plan is to leave it at 8 psi until I get the clutch and lsd installed. Ultimately shooting for 300+ whp after I get the funds for rods, pistons, and hardware. Should be a quick and painless install, just happy to finally get things moving.

Good luck! I think a turbo is the perfect place to start. Skip all the little stuff!

Same thing I was thinking. I didn't want a built engine and no power to go with it, same for clutch and lsd. This way I get to enjoy it a bit as I build it to handle more power. I just went with the gt28rs to make sure I had something to grow into.

Just the 28rs. Vic said they had got 396 with the 2.5 downpipe, so I saw no reason to go to a 3 in. downpipe when the rest of the exhaust is 2.5. Already have a chosworth intake waiting to go on.

That sounds awesome. Don't forget to carrier bearings, speed sensor & use the spendy Ford diff oil.
