Cobras always turn heads; in this great blue and white combo it really brings out the curves. It is a replica; however it is a very accurate one even down to the period correct gauges. Its got a modern, warmed up 5.0 powerplant with an electronic engine management system with a 5-speed manual behind it. Awaiting a Stage II clutch and upgraded flywheel.

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

1969 Camaro convertible hot start repairs

Recently finishing restoration; this beautiful ’69 Camaro came to us with issues involving  hot starting. Ice cold it fired right up like a brand new car. Investigating the cause we found there was no spacer between the intake and carb; allowing the heat to transfer directly to the carb and essentially boiling the fuel. Some insulated lines and a spacer will have this beauty ready for the cruise in season.

Kenne Bell Boost-a-Pump mounting and installation

If you are going to install a supercharger or turbocharger on your vehicle; you need more fuel. Kenne Bell makes a reliable boost a pump that can be easily mounted in an out of sight location and once properly set may never need to be adjusted or fussed with again; just quietly working away in the background. This one was installed behind a trunk trim panel in an ’07 Mustang.

Mustang rear gear upgrade

Are you looking to get more low end grunt off the line and lower ET’s at the same time? Then look no further than installing a set of steeper gears in your car. This upgrade alone makes any car feel substantially more powerful – helping launch the car off the line and get up to speed quicker. Speedometer recalibration via a handheld tuning device is required for an accurate speedometer reading; so many opt for a performance tune at this time. This manual V-6 Mustang is getting upgraded to 3.73’s; the recommended ratio for a 5 speed car.

Forced induction must-haves

Are you considering forced induction on your ride? Here are two necessities. A good boost gauge; like any other reliable gauge, can alert you of any issues before they become catastrophic as well as let you monitor whats happening under that hood. Check out this trick install on a Mustang GT.

Another common mistake in boosted cars is running out of fuel pump. That truly means when the pump is at 100% it still isn’t enough for the car and it will go lean. A lean car makes for terrible results – in most cases a ventilated block once a rod gets thrown. One great economical and proven fix is a boost-a-pump; shown below in a Mustang. It increases the voltage signal allowing the pump to perform at an even better performance rate.
