  1. ITSnolongerASIX 1966 Mustang

    I would not put any T-5 behind a 351. They just won’t last. I’d at least use a Tremec TKO 500/600.
  2. ITSnolongerASIX 1966 Mustang

    I’m a fan of McLeod’s products. It’s their twin disc setup I just put in the ‘65 and used their RXT line on both of my GT500’s in the past with no issues.
  3. Back in the game I guess..

    I drive mine daily. I’ve put about 18K miles on it in the past 12 months. I’m averaging about 16mpg, but can pull down 21-22mpg on the interstate.

    You’d likely love it. I know I do mine.

    Happy New Year!
  7. Random thought thread

    I was not. Transmission is out of the fastback while a new clutch goes in. Hasn’t seen the road in a couple of months.

    Congrats and welcome the classic Mustang club!

    Congrats, Chris. What’s not to like, ZL1’s are beasts. I think you’d hate a ZL1 1LE as anything but a showpiece or track car.

    I have a 393W stroker in the '65, and it is a tight fit. It will not go under a stock hood and you'll need custom headers.

    Not sure you'd enjoy it. It's performance is awesome, but driving it anywhere but on a track will require kidney transplant surgery and new fillings 200 miles down a regular highway.

    351W is a tight fit, but it does fit. However, headers for application leave almost no extra working room.
  15. Drove the '65 today....

    So, despite needing an alignment, a new clutch and various other items, I took the '65 out for a little ride earlier today. I forgot how STIFF the clutch is in the car! Driving it has motivated me to get it to the point where it can be driven/cruised comfortably.

    Auto? Blasphemy! No, we're sticking with the T56, but definitely changing out the clutch to one which requires less pedal effort. The current unit is a McLeod street twin intended for high HP applications and is overkill for the n/a setup in the car. Likewise, the cam profile is too aggressive, so the bumpstick will get swapped. From there, better braking and perhaps air conditioning.

    Thanks, I'll let my wife know you think so!
  18. Union Hill tonight?

    Looks like good weather, anybody going to Union Hill tonight?
  19. Union Hill tonight?

    Congrats Matt!
  20. Union Hill tonight?

    If I go, I'll be in the Raptor. I'd just like to see what the little ttV6 can do in a 5600lb truck!
  21. Post your best slips and video!

    So close to the sevens. I hate when I'm so close to something but can't seem to break through. Get that 60ft down and you're there!
