fully forged internals, 60 PSI injectors, IMRC delete, EGR delete, vortech V-2 supercharger with 3.0 pulley, thumprr racing tensioner, RPM Gates belt, McLeod RST dual disk clutch with aluminum flywheel. 3.73 gears , Nitto NT01 305’s in the back mm panhard bar, mm lower control arms, front suspension is stock, just upgraded shocks to koni, steeda firewall clutch cable adjuster. I re did the front seats, Had Florida 5.0 do my gauges, going to do the mm tubular k member and control arms and wildwood 6 piston caliper with 14 inch rotors and will prob go with coil overs front and back when the i send the v-2 in for the si upgrade. It’s putting 550HP and 487 torque to the wheels right now, but want more, so was told going to bigger injectors and E85 with new fuel pump. Would get me another 100 HP…I drive the car in weekends. Im kind of in the fence about going E85, I wanted it to be a clean fast weekend car. I scored this car at my dealership, it was owned by a retired cop, when he told me the year and miles I wanted to see it when he said he would take 2500-3000. Keep in mind the motor was already built, (5k) and he had done the supercharger, short shifter, and had a book of reciepts with an easy 10k invested in it from his pocket. being a desk manager I did my paperwork that night because it was such a great deal, the customer threw the number out first so I didn’t speak.
Is there any suggestions power wise to go to from here considering what’s done to it. here are the pics

Oh man, what a nice car! And a great deal too. I saw that you had a duplicate thread with no pictures so I’m going to delete that one.

Welcome to the forum, hopefully you like it here and stick around.

What a fantastic deal!! Wow.
I can only imagine your excitement.
Besides, I bet that car is a record holder.

I mean, most cars hold different records for speed and such,
but can you imagine how many times that particular car has gotten pulled over for SPEEDING, but never ticketed??

:cool:

Hey, not sure if you'll see this but looking at your photos I see you switched to a double-din. Plan to also, couple of questions:
1. Does the location of the unit work ok for viewing the navigation? I always thought it might be a tad low but I have the same double-din kit and was wondering.
2. That Kenwood looks like the same model I am seeking. How do you like it? Is the Nav quick and responsive?

Nice ride...

I have similar model Kenwood in my 2002 F150. I like it a lot. When I use Android Auto, the Nav (Waze/Google Maps) is actually on my phone, but is "cast" to the screen and it works just like it does directly on the phone. The hands-free calling and texting works good to, once you get the hang of it
