Well, I guess my stock motor didnt like the power I was throwing at it........:giggle: This piece I found on the hiway its where my block now has a window lol.

I really wasnt all that upset to be honest cause I was wanting to make more power and couldnt do it with a stock motor without it being a ticking time bomb. Im no stranger to melted motors this is #5.....:ROFLMAO:

So, now its getting a 426ci Stroker with Ported Thitek Heads. Diamond 2k Pistons, Callies Crank, Callies Rods with a Comp Cam and a Ported Magnuson 2650 with ARP etc..... Should be good for 1700 hp now. Pretty sure thats what them 6.2 blocks can hold. The added cubes and heads will give me another 100 whp and lots of TQ.

Should make 1100+ whp now with corn on the Magnuson. And now that im moving to Kingsport Tennessee with an E85 gas pump IN TOWN....... IN TOWN!!!!!! How crazy is that! Im psyched! E85 just isnt readily available in New England.

That is going to be WAY too much fun. Just let me stop by now and take it off of your hands. You know, so you don't get jaded by having too much fun with it. How about every other weekend and Wednesdays?....haha
That is going to be ****ing awesome. When is this happening?

Bummer! How much power was it making when it let go?
About 900 whp but that was on a Mustang Dyno so im assuming its closer to a 1000 whp on a Dynojet.

Its a hit and miss thing cause some have made over a 1100 whp on a stock motor on a Dynojet which I guess is about a 1000 whp on a Mustang Dyno.

Ur pushing it tho. The stock rods arent made to handle that much power but like anything some do and have zero issues...... Not me lol:unsure::rolleyes:

LOL ok we will share......:LOL: Right now bro its getting built! No 6 month wait or nothing. Gonna take a little while for the heads to come in (6 weeks) but I got some 17 inch Weld Belmonts and some Mickey 305/45 Street R's going on rear with 555R2's up front 305/35 20.

I got some Nitto 555R2 going on the Velgen rims right now but once its on E85 in Tennessee the Welds are going on all the time cause ill need em for traction but I gotta say them 555R2's are dope! Hook like velcro. Highly recommend!

With 900 whp and the billet control arms front and rear I launch so freaking hard its hard to describe how it feels! Another 200 whp is gonna be sick.

My buddy went for a ride in my TH on 93 octane/Meth making 815 whp and he has a low 9 second Grand National and he swears the G-Forces from a dig are the same as it is for him with his GN at the track on slicks going low 9's!

That sucks, Brett, but your new rendition is going to be even meaner, AND much more reliable since you abuse the hell out of it. LOL. Keep us posted on the build progress. That is one beautiful Track Hawk!

Its got the Outlaw axels. Think their good to like 2000 hp or something. Has a CF driveshaft as well and diff braces front and rear.

Surprised you don’t snap axles every time you launch that sucker. It’s a beast.

Actually the Mustang will be up for sale soon lol. I just got too many projects going on and only have a two car garage. I love that thing tho its a beast. Gonna put the new Welds on it with new 275/60's with Bear brakes, CF splitter, CF wing, CF Rear seat delete.

Also getting an electric air pump for the wastegate vs. the Co2. Then no one ever has to worry about running out of C02. Cause if u do u make no power lol.

It will be turn-key wicked. Its turn-key wicked right now but im gonna make it completely streetable. Has like 43k miles I think.

Also got a new Focal Utopia MW Subwoofer sub going in the rear cause it has a Focal Utopia sound system with Helix DSP and Helix sub amp and it was built for the Utopia Subwoofer. The sound system has over $10k into it easily. Only added 30 extra lbs with the entire sound system. The extra money was spent on components that worked well that didnt add weight.

The car has electric dumps so its relatively quiet with them closed but I will add it makes 150 whp more with them open lol. And that was on 93 octane!

Gonna get it tuned on E85 as well. Ran out of injector last time and make 1070 whp on E85 at 19 lbs so I just ran it around on 93 octane cause I was too cheap to buy injectors lol. Plan on going to like 28 lbs on E85 tho. It made a 1000 whp on 93 octane alone and like 800 ft lbs of TQ lol.

I have some really lightweight front brakes on it now but their pretty much death traps on the street lol so thats why the Bears are going on. Both front and rear. Price will be $60k.

Damn.

I got plenty ha. I actually have quite a few Bwoody suspenion parts I took off. I just cleaned em all off and put in box.

PM if u want em. Shit, u can have em just pay for shipping.

Bummer but glad you’re ok with it.
I actually felt the same when I popped my ‘14 GT500 motor.
I’m good with just mike bolt ons for my Trackhawk but if I need mod advice I’ll just ask you for your old parts :)

Brett, sorry about the engine failure, but sounds like you’re going to make lemonade from the lemons! I’m regard to your Mustang- are the numbers you mention here from a mustang dyno too?
