    MotoIQ - Project Budget 400whp S197 Mustang Track Car

    Thanks, Billy! I'll DM you.Yeah, Dave. Back in (this is so embarrassing) 2013, I tried doing just that and I let perfectionism get in the way of progress. They weren't turning out the way I wanted and gave up. Even one of TMO's resident fabricators gave them a try to offer to other folks and...

    MotoIQ - Project Budget 400whp S197 Mustang Track Car

    Definitely. Thanks for the great articles, Billy! Any chance you can whip-up some of those 3-D adapters for use with the Steeda wing? I have called around to a lot of the race teams hoping they had a pair in a box somewhere in the back of the shop, but no such luck. Unobtainium. I would be happy...

    Posting for posterity. Finally finished with my DIY oil cooler. Core: Setrab 48-row "Texas sized" Stock cooler delete? No Thermostat? NoHaven't track tested yet, but I expect I will see the same result as most of you. The only thing different about my setup that I hadn't seen before is that I...

    Boss 302S v Boss 302R Lap Times

    Circuit of the Americas (COTA): 302R - 2:22.504 - Billy Johnson in #158 Multimatic for 2014 Grand-Am GS (good enough for pole position and 3rd place) 302S - 2:16.641 - Nate Stacy - #14 Roush for 2016 PWC GTS qualifyingJust data points. Still, I always assumed 302S would be faster, because of...

    What did you do to your Boss 302 or S197 today?

    I know, I know... it's not exactly 007's revolving license plates, but it should:Maybe keep the state troopers from hassling me Maybe keep the kids from trying to drag race me every at every light, when I'm just trying to get to Luby's for my senior meal Maybe keep someone from nicking my $50...

    What did you do to your Boss 302 or S197 today?

    Okay, I just needed to have myself a little tantrum. Yes, it looks like they make 1/8" NPT straight extensions that should do the trick. Should have an update later in the week. Thanks!

    What did you do to your Boss 302 or S197 today?

    Yep, I'll do a lower bracket in the same way as shown in the DIY thread - attaching to the splitter mounting tabs/boxes/points on the tubular bumper. Meanwhile, the project has ground to a halt, because just when I thought I had everything sorted, my oil temp sensor is too long for the new oil...

    Finished DIY rear seat delete

    Okay, I punted on the DIY rear seat delete. 2020 has been a rough year and I didn't want to risk murderous rage, if my DIY effort failed to meet my own standards. Also, I'm gainfully employed again and have more money than time, so I decided to treat myself to my favorite non-factory rear seat...

    Finished DIY rear seat delete

    Welp, stuck at home now to avoid the 'rona, so I might as well get to work on this. Any overachievers out there save a template with measurements? The top section is pretty easy, but I'm finding the bottom to be quite a bit more challenging. The OP did a great job, but it also looks like it's...
