Full intirior, All heater stuff removed {i dont drive in the winter} 6 point roll cage, getting 5 point harnesses for my upcoming 11sec et's. 16 gallon RCI fuel cell, Trunk mouted battery, 1/2 fuel line running to a 130 GPH carter fuel pump {i might get the 172}, With canister filter in the rear. Ford 9" rear end, detroit locker, 4.11 gears, 31 spline moser axles, polyuerathane bushings, Cal tracs, 50/50 shocks and monoleaf springs this spring. Richmond 5 speed with vertigate shifter and 3.27 first gear. Mcleod scattersheild, Hays aluminum flywheel, custom clutch this spring {from a local clutch guy}. Front end suspension consists of Polyuerathane bushings, 2" drop spindles, disc brakes, 90/10 shocks, standard springs, and no swaybar {im not going around corners at 75 mph so why have one} And i have Subframe connectors tieing it all together. The car sits on weld drag lites 275/60r15 {15x8 rim} cooper cobras, and 165 {3.5" rim} cooper cobras in the front. Now for motor so far i have the following, high nickel 350 block, 4 bolt splayed caps, 4340 eagle 3.48" crank, 4340 eagle 6" rods, srp pistons, 11.1:1 after i mill my heads, federal mogul comp. bearings, Isky Z-70 cam {304, 264@.050, .548, havent getten it yet}, weiand team G intake, im trying to decide if i want to stick with my sportsman 2's or get a good aluminum head and port the hell out of it.

Thats what i got...as you can see ive spent alot of $$$...thats the rule of thumb, wanna go fast? Well how much money,time,effort, blood, and cusswords do you have in ya?? This is my street driver cruise car, my ultimate goal is low 11's on all motor,no spray. I dont know if this is the kind of thing you want, in fact most people wouldnt want to drive it, but i get off on that kind of stuff. Well android what do you think of my setup so far, likes/dislikes? Any specific questions on stuff mentioned or not mentioned? Let me know
