    Don't know if he's on this forum but if you're talking intakes and cams, look up NASVT on modularfords forum. He's the man.

    He's not. A few of us have already mentioned him, he's the man for B headed stuff. Nazman is equally good for the 99+ C headed stuff.

    Here is what I ended up with. NA Stocker & the valve covers have never been removed.

    Thanks!
    Actually at 3560 it will go 12 teens. 6500 rpm launch 6800 rpm power shifts.
    The track times in sig are at 3280. car still has the stock "K" mem. and is wingless, AC is gone, for that 11.66 run complete rear seat was out, front seat out, mach 460 rear deck out, spare and jack out, wiper blades only out. I weight 225. battery in trunk & light weight rims 1/4 tank of gas really that is about it. Launch 7000 rpm 6800 rpm power shifts. the 11.66 run was done on -500 ft below sea level day @ 46 degrees F. (1.51 60 ft. time)

    EDIT: forgot to mention I took out the front and rear bumper supports. front 16.5 pounds and the rear is 23 pounds.

    Now everything is back in seats, stereo, full tank of gas, spare jack. AC is still out and not going back in. Car still runs good at the track and has no problems running 12.30's with out putting it on kill. Meaning 4500 launch 6800 shifts with a 3-4 shift at 6000. See you can still have fun and keep your car a stocker because all that stuff bolts right back in when you get home. Now I just leave it this way. I got tired of bolting the stuff in and out all the time or maybe I'm just getting old. Still love to race and the car is clean and streetable 41000 miles on it now. Valve covers NEVER been removed.

    I think a great start for these cars (if you want to stay N/A stocker) is a shortrunner intake, IMRC Deletes, UPR Big Mouth filter, Fuel pressure regulator, 4.56 gears, UD pulleys, full exhaust w/ no cats, a good tune to tie it all together, a good clutch, short throw shifter, trans, diff and axles, slicks and skinneys on 15" rims, line lock and 2 step, some good adjustable suspension parts that will give you a happy medium for street and strip (see below), weld the torque boxes and axle tubes, do not forget the full length subframe connectors and the caster camber plates. Then some minor weight reduction that you can live with. Easy low 12 to high 11 second "B" headed stock motored Cobra that will be reliable and streetable. No need for a trailer just throw the slicks in the back seat and head to the track.

    Here ya go! Thank god for copy & Paste.

    wow guy it seems as if you have perfected your car lol great job at it but your elevation doesnt hurt either

    im taking out my
    back seat
    gut trunk (spare, jack, carpet, plastic)
    mach amp rack
    rear bumper support
    maybe front bumper support
    and maybe the side impact beams in doors
    i dont drive my car much and i have really good insurance so i can afford to play with the safety features

    i think my car ball parks 3550 with me in it and 1/8 to 1/4 tank full weight
    so im hopeing to get the car down to 3300 with me in it and a 1/4 to 1/2 tank its going to be hard but i think its possible and im keeping a/c and both front seats.. and i doubt i do much suspension work
    if anything some carbon fiber parts like hood and trunk to help take off another 40 or so in the long run and a couple months ago my car put down 406whp and like 400wtq at about 95 degrees and 60%humidity

    ive slaughterd a 430whp on motor gto but on a 100 shot he only got me by a couple cars.. everyone says my car runs strong for 406whp lol i agree but its still not fast enuf especially on the street so im just tryin to shave 100-150lbs for that extra car lenght

    blake...CF parts aren't going to net much gain for the money spent. and the impact beams in the doors don't come out without first cutting out the doorskins, so that means no doorpanels, permanently.

    oh dang wow glad you chimed in with that one lol now im not even going to bother with the impact beams in the doors lol

    and i guess your right about the cf.. i can get some lightweight suspension parts for a grand and prob save more weight than i would with a cf hood and trunk..

    I have had close to 10 years to get it this way. Bought it new in march 1998.
    Best of luck with your quest.

    The extra front seat weights 40 pounds and the AC is 35 pounds. Yeah your looking at around 3350 depending on how much you weight.
    My car is a slow car on the street. These N/A stockers need high rpm launches (6500+) and slicks to go 11's
    You will at least need to lower the rear of your car 3/4" to get the suspension geometry in the ball park to hook it up at the track. Thats why I like weight jackers and some sort of adjustable shock back there. I understand you cant do everything all at once but spend your money wisely. The CF hood and trunk not needed till the very end if needed at all. If you plan on using slicks you will need parts that will allow you make more than 10 passes before something breaks. That is the part that will cost $2500 minimum for no extra power.
    I think those door supports only weight 7 pounds each. I would pass on that.

    Right well im still up in the air but as of right now im going to finsish taking out all the stuff i can live without and then i will go with some 31 spline axels and a trac loc..

    im not really trying to be fast at the track just on the street.. so any little bit helps

    i have some worn out mt's with 1/4 or maybe less life left in them im going to try out on the street whenever it stops raining and im hopeing i can get some 0mph- and some 20mph- races done but im not to sure because as you said i dont want to break anything.. im hopeing after i do the rear end by then i can stumble apon some termi internals and then build my motor and up the boost and either then go auto or re-build my t45
