Default kenne bell 2v mustang

hey guys so i have been trying to find time to put my build thread on here for a while now. i have been taking pictures throughout the whole thing. i bought the car back in 09 it was pretty much stock had an intake and an exhaust. right away wasn't enough for me and i ended up putting a saleen IV series supercharger on it. it made 328rwhp 349rwt which i was very happy with at the time but the motor had just just hit 100,000 and i wasn't very easy on it could feel it losing power. so before something went in the motor and ruin the blower i took it off and sold it. figured i would put a 100 shot wet kit on the car to keep me happy through the summer i knew the motor wasnt going to last but i had big plans anyway so i planed on buying a new motor in the future. it lasted all of 10 mins with the nitrous on it.


this is how the car was while i had the supercharger on it.





so i pulled the motor and sure enough...



so i decided to get a bigger supercharger and build the motor. so the first thing i bought was a kenne bell 2.6 so i couldn't change my mind there's no turning back now. it has all 8 rib pilleys set up for 21lbs of boost

gutted the interior and got it ready for the 6 point s&w roll bar.


bought some cobeau seats and put them in he car so when the roll bar was bein installed he could tweak it to fit just righ around the seats and doors. came out pretty sweet.




also while he was welding i had him weld in my maximum motorsports subfame connectiors.

Nice build dude, good luck with the rest of it....I would definitely urge you to work with Steve, he built my long block and I'm nothing but 100% satisfied all around. Depending on how much power you plan on making he will talk you out of the aluminum block, he did in my case.

thanks for the advise. i was planning on going with them ive heard good things. as for power numbers i dont know. im planning on low compression motor, probly a mild blower cam, trick flow twisted wedge heads, kenne bell 2.6 with 21psi, and water/meth injection through a th400. Any guesses? im thinking somewhere between 550 and 650

Cool man yeah that sounds like somewhere in the ball park. At that power level he'll probably give you the green light on the aluminum block if that's what you wanna do it's when you get way up there in power that the iron block is the better choice. Something to discuss with him, he's really good about answering questions and knows a ton about these mod motors.

On a side note I remember reading somewhere that there's a few modifications that need to be done to use the KB with the TFS heads can't remember exactly, I believe just a few easily remedied clearance issues, just something to research ahead of time.

havent made as much progress on the car as i would have liked. been real busy between work and helping a friend get his fireturd ready for the summer nats but i have most of the suspension in now.

in the front i have maximum motorsports k member with tokiko d spec 10 way adjustable struts and 175lb coils.





in the rear im running mm heavy duty adjustable lower control arms, mm heavy duty torque arm, mm panhard bar. with tokiko d spec rear shocks and h&R race rear coils.








just have to weld in the rear swaybar now and the suspension will be done. went to weld it in the other day and ran out of gas
