Post #168 is an awesome shot. Love the headlight horn. Did you make part of that out of fiberglass?
I considered that for mine since my air filter is right behind the passenger side headlight, but the contour of the headlight was maddening.

Thank you, and no its made out of aluminum. It took a little time to get the shape just right for the headlight

i have heard some good things about twin disk from the ls guys when i was pricing a t56 for my car. exedy and mccleod both have good reviews and they all say avoid spec. since they only have exedy and clutchmaster that ive seen for the focus i guess your good to go. im looking forward to seeing you run 11's and keep up with that blue vette. good luck

cars like the challenger are the reason i went with a v8 rwd swap.. 9.8 come on my stock motorcycle can run that and with the amount of work me and you had put into our cars to run 12's or 13's it depressed me. even more depressing now that ive put so much more time in my car.. but what are you gonna do cant stop now lol

Cool! It's funny to see a stripped down interior like that.
