    Red car will probably get faster throughout the year. Continue with the stock block stuff for the first part of the year and then step up to a Dart block and a th400. If all goes well of course.
    I look forward to seeing where both of these go, welcome back to the Foxbody world Brian, unlimited possibilities...

    Hopefully I can get them both in the 9's. That would be a goal that is obtainable.

    My goals for 2020 are:

    1. New intercooler / radiator / trans cooler along with a welded charge pipe to TB and a bit of hot side / cold side piping redo after an AC delete - in progress now .
    2. Rebuild of trans with more and better clutches for forward/reverse since on the transbrake this year and an upgrade of the direct drum along with changing torque converter to a non lockup 258mm unit - in progress
    3. Installing a Holley Terminator X Max and 7" digital dash to run the engine and boost control

    See what 1 - 3 yields me for the 1st half of race season till the taxes come back the full out on the motor build. The ultimate goal is to be:
    1. Low 9's (9.30 or lower) with a build motor and 18 to 22 psi

    Going to try and go south to make some passes once 1 & 2 above are done to see what the stock motor and about 11.5psi on the factory ECU get's me. Would love to see a sub 10.30x run at that level.

    Switching from racing NMRA to OSCA (Outlaw Street Car Assocation) - closer races and better payouts. They have a race a Kil Kare this year on August 8th.

    Will make the Dozen Shootout with my duck.

    Just enjoy being back in a fox and able to cruise it some. Might see what it has at the track too! Then see where I need to go with it. I unfortunately do not qualify for the dozen though

    Iím just hoping to make more than one pass this year. As soon as my pistons come in my collection of parts is going to the machine shop for a sleeves short locks that wasnít in the plans for this winter. After the new engine get installed and broken in Iím going to swap out the spec clutch for a Mcloud RXT then a Edelbrock TVS.

    Heck yea man, I'm a big fan of the new gt500. I really like that Predator engine. I'd like to make my own version, GT1000 I shall call it...

    1) Install the On3 turbo kit and Microsquirt on the 89 GT.

    2) Learn how to tune a Microsquirt car

    3) Try not to blow it up

    Should be a fun car. What size trubo did you go with?

    Not bashing the Microsquirt but you might want to consider the Terminator X for the Foxbody, pretty nice unit with a ton of features, only thing I wish it had was the ability to drive low impedance injecotrs. https://www.holley.com/products/fuel...parts/550-937F

    I beleive NXcoupe (Mike) is a dealer for them.

    Thanks Greg, yes I am, and I can tune megasquirt as I have the licenses for TS and the log viewer too.
    The holley terminator X series is set as a direct competitor for the ms and other stand alones in its price range. I'm tuning 2 of those currently, a 65 mustang and a 90 Grand Wagoneer.
