Hello, finally made it to the track this year. I made the 100 MPH club! whoooo even though the DA was way up there, the suspension and shift points made a huge difference. How about this! Mines the Blue one, I wasnt after reaction but did go faster than the red fox which was pretty beastly.

Bravo and Hoohah! Nice, efficient runs. Love that 1/8th ET and MPH !

Next time you run a 13.03, see if there's any furniture left to throw out of the car. The older manual passenger seats can be 44 lbs....

thanks! And I do have full interior, lol, coulda done a lot of things to shave some et I suppose, I didnt realize Id run so good. I cant believe how those control arms (UPR) helped slingshot me outta the hole so well. Also upped the shift point from 4800-5000 to 5700, sounds high for a stock engine, but 7 tenths gain I cannot argue with, it wants to be wound up.

My mechanical fuel pump and existing lines from tank were just nasty, so a few months ago I installed a Holley Blue Pump and the deadhead regulator included and I have a couple concerns.

There is no voltage drop, pump is mounted just about even with sump pick up, so it shouldnt really be pulling fuel, but gravity/siphon feeding. Im using a Large fram inline filter before the pump, but its flowing fine, all 3/8" steel braided line. Regulator set at 6 psi. Also using a relay to maintain a constant 12.7 or so voltage. Also I am using the stock tank and pick up, and all is clean, well vented, stock 5/16" sump tube, tank soon to be upgraded will be a welded in sump and a 3/8 pickup.

Im sure this has been beat to death but the pump ran hot on the drive to the track and quit working till it cooled down, had to limp it to and from the track.

My runs were strongest yet as I gained some serious ET and MPH, however experienced some engine hiccups at the mid to top of third and fourth gear (4000-5500), Im not sure if I was getting pressure creep and overloading the bowls, but on my last run the needle seat in the front bowl wouldnt hold (still showing 6 psi) until I took it out and cleaned it, now its all fine again, for now.

Should I run a return style regulator like the Mallory 4309, has 3 ports, 2 for my dual feed carb and 1 I could use for nitrous later on if I wanted. Before replacing the deadhead regulator should I just get a better pump? I mean obviously I dont need a blue pump atm, but may in the coming future.

I want to get this done right so I dont have to mess with it, obviously it cost me some trouble, cant be hiccuping or stammering when Im on the verge of 12's!

So why is this thing running so hot? I mean it was a hot miserable day, but I doubt that had anything to do with it, it gets hot when Im cruising on the street at night.

I'm sorry, I can't help you with the carb stuff, but I'm glad to see that the UPR suspension is working well for you!!

Hey guys! I did it!! I hit 12's! Cars been sitting for a year been real busy, been off working my butt off. Nothing new done to car, a nice 68 degree day, DA around 3200. Lowered my launch RPM a little. But she did it. For those who know of my quest to reach into the 12's then you know its a basically stock 83 GL 5.0 coupe 5 speed. Suspension pretty much fully optimized. All suspension here. Thanks to UPR, Ford Racing, Homemade subframe connectors, Competition Engineering Battle Box reinforcements. Mickey Thompson DR's, Fresh Posi with the recommended clutch pack build. Took the hood off, but everything else intact and full stock interior.

!st run was [email protected] with a 2.1 60' ft. ugh


Stock Fox Mustang Goes 12 Seconds - YouTube



yeah!!!

Heres the breakdown

60'.... 1.711
330'....5.160
1/8.....8.084
MPH....84.03
1000'...10.629

1/4......12.841
MPH.....100.79

12.84 @ 100.79

Never underestimate a working suspension! Now time to build the engine.

Forgive the camera work and my shifting, I kinda babied it cause my first run was slippery, I wasnt expecting to stick this time. lol

Oh, my fuel pump ran ice cold, went with a bigger filter, guess that solved the overheating Holley Blue Pump. everything just worked Not sure why I dropped so much MPH on that run. But no matter, I accomplished the mission.

I got a $1000 12 second street car. Rescued from a certain death 4 or 5 years ago, some suspension goodies and LOTS of TLC, but all stock from intake down. I couldnt be more pleased right now. Right on!

Thanks man! A big thumbs up to your suspension products. Im so jazzed I was able to cut more than 2 seconds off my 1/4 mile times by dialing in my suspension. I am really glad I decided to build the suspension first.

Oh the DA was 4307 according to Drag Times. I thought the tower said 3200, they might have said 4200. Corrected thats 12.16 lol

But I doubt many people get a near 0 DA. So I dont really count that. It ran what it ran. hehe
