Got in this beautiful Cobra with a freshly built engine for some fine tuning and adjustments to bring out its full potential.

Changing out the jets on the carb, adjusting the throttle linkage, and getting the timing just right really makes this Cobra pack a punch now. Plus it looks great doing so.

A project we just took in is this 2007 Ford Mustang GT that the customer is having us install a Whipple supercharger on. We are currently acquiring the rest of the pieces to the build. Here you can see pics of the blower, new spark plugs, and higher flow fuel injectors. Stay tuned for the completion.

Supercharger Oil Changes

Did you know your supercharger in your high performance vehicle also has its own maintenance schedule? Depending on whether you have a Kenne Bell, Eaton, or Whipple they have their own standards for changes and fluid specifications. Some intervals are as low as every 12,000 miles so call us if you are unsure. We have the expertise and equipment for proper oil changes.

Lincoln Mark VIII exhuast

You don’t see many Mark VIIIs on the road; and this is one perfect example. But being a typical Lincoln – it was too quiet for a hot rod guy. We welded on a pair of glasspack mufflers with resonated tips that give it a deep rumble letting you know there’s power to back it up. IMG_0756 IMG_0758

1956 Chevy Hot Rod Pickup

IMG_0162

This beautiful black ’56 came to us with the customer noting complaints such as rough idle and a few other minor issues. Upon close inspection we found a couple of badly burnt spark plug wire boots where they had been resting on the exhaust manifold and a few badly fouled spark plugs. We replaced all 8 plugs and wires and performed an oil change at the customer’s request. No job is too small for us here at Fast Specilaties!  Truck is running great and ready for cruisin’!

Spec Miata is a class of racing used in road racing events across the US. The Spec Miata (SM) class is intended to provide the race in low-cost cars with limited modifications; mainly those suitable for racing competition. Regualtions of aftermarket parts and accessories are in place to encourage low cost, production car based competition leveling out the car’s capabilities making it more a test of driver skills.

Today number 308 is here for a dyno run and tune to find the proper air fuel mixtures from idle to redline for power at any point in the race while being within the guidelines. Check out the pop-off Sparco steering wheel and the required cage.

1965 Dodge D-Dart

In came this very rare factory D-Dart; which was a little know go-fast package right from Dodge.The owner of this one has had it since brand new in 1965! It has fully redone engine; and was converted to a dual carb setup – but when they were rebuilt by another individual; the jets and calibrations were all completely off – making this car run so rich it was smoking even at idle. We have the dual 4’s calibrated and running substantially better now.IMG_1724 IMG_1725
