So I have finally made a decision on a direction I'm taking my car. I purchased a Hellion 7675 kit for my car last fall with intentions of a winter project. Well, that ended up snowballing into a crap load of money. So I ended up returning the kit. I went a few months of pondering just throwing on a Whipple/ VMP and be like every other 03/04 out there. Well by pure luck I found a guy selling a F1A kit with 0 street miles and roughly 20-25 passes, it so happened to be American Muscles shop car he had bought. He was removing the kit and it was a deal I couldn't pass up as it was half the cost of a Turbo kit.








For now I will use ProChargers intake and utilize the factory intercooler and front mount. I already have a 01 Cobra intake I will swap to in the future and then convert to A2A. At this moment I will be running E85, twin 465 pumps on a return system, Fore Rails with ID1000's injectors. Mac LT's with xpipe. Im not sure what I expect from the kit just that I will be different then most and she is going to love some Mexico highway pulls. I'm shooting for 800whp which may be difficult with that intake setup. Any feedback positive or negative is appreciated, as well as any tips you may have. I will post build pics, as I am also adding MM Kmember and control arms to work with existing CO's

It should make glorious noises we all like.

On a side note. My friend has this blower and if I recall. That little intake cone came off and his blower got destroyed. Now he has to rebuild it. Something to check and double check tripple check.

One I have noticed is how the blower was installed, is doesn't appear to be any room for a filter. They ran that stainless screen which will block larger debris, but anyone run a centric with no filter? I don't drive car in the rain, I don't daily the car either.

So I have finally received everything from powder coating thanks to Z over at Crown Customs. The tear down now starts. Duel 465 pumps, return style fuel system with Fore rails, reg, filter, and fittings. ID1000's injectors going E85, ARH 1 7/8" LT headers with 3" xpipe (will be looking to get a 3" Catback), obviously the F1-A kit, Accufab SBTB w/elbow, VMP5000 MAF, Max Motorsports K-Mem, Aarms, bump steer, other various supporting suspension items, Oil relocation kit from MM.




I'm not sure what to expect in the area of power, but what I wanted most was a different setup, and this is definitely different. I'm sure I would see more power from a A2A setup, which I have a 01 Cobra intake to swap to but wanted to see what I can get out of this set up first. We shall see....
