I didn't want to go through Ford, but its lookin like my last resort! I have a cousin working there, so i should be able to get around 30% off... dont know anything about canb. car styling! But i know for sure that awc dont do the rebel kit for the au! So doesn't leave much, lol
The stroker is definetly gettin done, flirting with mayb a vortek blower but i dunno yet.. still gotta draw it up and price it all! I'm really just diein for the kit to be done, it eats away at me every nite i go to sleep, lol
Carlos,
P.S how is your fine machine runnin?

Yer, mines an auto! The 3.9's will be dropped in nicely, will be able to make it work, to a lot of ppl's dismay, :p Had the Stage2 Shift Kit in the bird for like 5-6 weeks, and im lovin it! 2nd & 3rd gear chirps are now par for the course.
Im gonna get a price this weekend from my cuz, and compare with c2r's old prices...and go from there, for the kit.

u may even get into the 11's running slicks and the right suspension setup if ur gonna run a supercharger as well.
theres an ed xr8 in my area stroked with heads and cam and all that sorta stuff and it runs a 12.2

Nah, that was just from local ford dealer, Hallam Ford actuallyy.
With my cousin's discount, i am probably lookin $2,800.00, which is still massive, supplied only, i would be happy to pay around 1-2k, when u think i dont need front bar, rear spolier.. i dunno! But i know for sure c2r hav gone bankrupt.. the boys at xr performance down this end, get a lot of kits from there, and advised me. And if u jump on there site.. the disclaimer appears. And i am yet to source out another joint that gets those Rebel Kits.
I'm either goin stoker or supercharger, dont think i hav the balls to do both.. wuld be far too powerfull for a streeter! Im happy with 12's, keep in mind, full street car.. with fair system in it! I wont the best of both worlds, style & performance.
Just got the car back today, mickey cut & polish and clean up! Looks 100%, "carlos waitin for the rain". Also picked up a car-bra for the old girl, be intrestin to see how she looks with it on.
Carlos,
