Well everything has come together now with the FBD.
I always wanted a 71 -73 Mach1 with 429 Ramair and could do 0 - 60 in 6 sec.
Well I have better I have a vert that looks like a Mach1, custom interior that fits it just right. the 429 Ramair. Found out tonight that she runs 0 - 60 in 6 sec with 3.25 rear gears. I did 6 runs with my brother inlaw. he was driving, to see what the FBD could do 0 -60 in. I thought when I did it by myself it did 6 sec. Hard to tell watching everything. SO I had him drive. He shifted the auto instead of letting it do it it's self. First 2 runs were 8 sec. I ask what RPMs he was shifting, He didn't know. from the sound of the engine it sounded like maybe 3500rpms. I told him to run it up to 5000 rpms and you don't need 3rd to hit 60. first run was 6 sec. who hoo!! did a couple more to make sure. Yup 0 - 60 in 6 sec Boy did I have a grin on my face, But not quite as big as the one after the monster burnout at CF2. I wounder what this thing would do with 3.90 or 4.11 gears?????? not gonna find out untill I get $$$$$$$$$$$ to put an overdrive in. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

I really wish you wouldn't show me this stuff!! I passed on a 460 when I put the 351W in it. I don't even want to get the urge!

I went from 0 to 68 in a flash. Give me the slow lane for a while so I can enjoy my stangs that I have acquired in that time. Hope I can go for 0 to 70 sorta slow so I can finish my last two restos.
