Hey all! I’m new around here but not so new to the world of Mustangs. I currently own two. One being a 96 base model which was my first car, and two being a 2012 Mustang GT which is currently undergoing surgery. I’ve spent the last 5 years or so working within the racing industry at the highest level, and have finally decided to dip my toes back into the driver pool.

I’m currently building a gt350 based platform where I’m pulling out all the stops. Starting with the block in boring out the factory spray in sleeve liner and sliding in a set of .090” flanged sleeves. It’ll be accompanied by a fully forged rotating assembly using a few tricks of the trade to help keep it healthy under the pressure it’s going to see...

Fully Cnc ported/ valve job’d heads... custom grind cams... the works.
All to be topped with a 2.8L LC kennebell. I have full intentions of running the 3” pulley with the system conjoined with the overdrive damper to push this thing to its limits. Realistically, I’m shooting for 1300hp at the crank on kill tune running C25 race gas.

Here are a few pictures of the car and the build so far!

Cut my teeth drag racing motorcycles in the 70's...Pro Stock. Then later found out 4 wheels was a little safer.:cool:
I like my bike but I prefer racing with 4 tires and a cage lol

I spend my time right out of college working for a couple prominent Nitro fuel teams within Nhra. Now a days I’m working in promod and factory stock. Less travel and more time spent with family. It’s been fun so far

Yes it is. Motorcycles were a thrill and a half. Did most of my racing at Ohio Valley, south of Louisville and Beech Bend, Bowling Green. Met some top racers back then, Vance & Hines and Russ Collins - RC Engineering and his Funny Bikes.
