I just wanted to say hello to every one on the site. I just purchased 1036/2000 this week and will be creating a build thread shortly. I am a tig welder and fabricator for a local company and have alot of experience fabbing turbo systems, and chassis components.

I also have a drag project that im building and needed a little break from it. I wanted a nice high powered street car to keep me sane while building the drag car lol. Here are some pictures of the drag car. Everything from the cage to the paint I built. This mustang is powered by an audi inline 5.

The frame spec sheet is posted here somewhere so when you check out the frame you have all the coordinates available.
Not saying the audi powerplant is wrong just not what I'm use to. I put about 150K miles on different fox bodies and had mine in the 11's in the early 90's which use to be fast. My buddies stayed with it and have had a bunch of heads/intakes on class winners and built a few different mustang over the years. They worked for Brian and TEA for years and when he left for Ohio started up their own thing... They just go big and insanity follows. click me for M&R Had they're personal car at like 2600hp with a 108mm.... stupid and uncontrollable on the local tracks ...parted out engine went out west and chassis went to dubai or some damn place over there. Best of luck with the project
