    The blower that is, not the car. This was my intention in the beginning, but when the car got here, it was so damn nice I didn't want to touch it. I'm thinking of tossing some money towards the Novi car, so I'm considering funding it this way for the right price.

    I don't know, waddya you guys think?

    I think you should go for it. What did you have in mind for the red car? Then you can have your badass fast car and a nice cruiser.

    It has a 3550 that I've had in a few combinations and I think it's starting finally show signs of wear.....hell, I've had it for over ten years with no problems/breakage. It's leaking just a little bit of fluid which is of no concern, but I've noticed that it's make a little bit of noise, so I'm sure it could use a freshening up. It still shifts great, feels good, etc, but it's probably time.

    Instead of putting money into it for a rebuild, I'm looking at some of the Promotion and Astro trannys. I'm going to talk to Hanlon too and see what he thinks. While I'm at it, I might as well put a clutch in it too. Nothing $3000 won't take care of!

    Not to mention, I know my injectors are pretty much maxed out and I need to put a wideband on the car to check a few things with my current tune. Meh, who needs two cars when one is a money pit of it's own! LOL!:D

    Ya, the Black car is quick, but it just doesn't go like the Red car. I'm like a chick on this whole deal........kinda fickle....lol!

    The other problem is finding the time to get if off the car. I hate putting feeler ads out there, but I suppose if someone came up with the cash, I could make it happen.

    I think a G-force would be worth looking into. I have a TKO-500 in my 93 and I don't really like it. I'm gonna go with a G-Force next time. My 03 is stock and I drive the shit out of it. The 93 is my garage queen. Lol

    Ya, I've heard those 500's are really clunky. My 3550 shifts like butter and has really taken the abuse.

    My problem is I always have to have the best when it comes to my aftermarket parts and the chit is expensive!:eek:

    Kenne could help

    I'd love to see your Flowzilla under my hood. Mine is mostly stock...Cold air intake, under drive pullies, headers and exhaust, 3.55 gear. I've had the car for just under a year and love almost everything about it. The only thing that bothers me is nearly every time i'm out cruising someone wants to take down the ole' Cobra. It's a fun car to drive around but shes not able to hang with most of the newer rides out there. I just got my lunch handed to me by an '05 GTO :(

    I've been giving some serious thought about Kenne Bell and Flowzilla but with that, wouldn't i have to upgrade the lower intake, heads and cam?

    No kidding? So you sold it eh? Do I dare ask how much you got for it?

    There was a bone stock, 150k miler on Ebay that didn't last long......$5500 buy it now.
    It was super clean for the miles, all original. What a steal.

    Na, you would't need any mods internally. This car is bone stock, save for the blower, exhaust, and supporting systems. It made 390rwhp and 430ish rwtq. It does OK.

    I've not had a stock Mustang in a very long time, so I'm kinda spoiled. I'm not sure if I could drive it stock. Like you said, somebody would want to mess with me. I'd hate to get whipped by some import crap!

    I really done some trading with it for the moment got a 2008 cbr 1000rr motorcycle and other goodies for it!!! I rode the bike the other night, it is a mean machine way faster than any I have ever had. I think I am going to sell it or do some more trading for a cruiser or harley.
