Default Mr.Scharf's 1993 Foxbody Notch

I'm finially getting around to posting my 1993 Foxbody notchback project in the car build up section. I got this little jewel at a yard sale for $300 bucks. At the time the owner told me that it needed a transmission and didn't run. After I got it home I put 5 quarts of transmission fluid in it and proceeded to drive it for 6 months. I also had to change the oil. It was way over filled and it was RED fluid. I guess we all know what he did. Oh well. His ignorance was a great deal for me. Anyway I'll list the mechanicals and post up some pictures. I don't think the pictures are in any particualr order. I'm much further along than this first batch of pictures may suggest. I'll post more pic's later. Below are the motor spec's and mechanicals.

Quite a build. Best of luck with it.

Will you be OK with 28x12.5s without a tub?

Looking good Chris!

Taxman the ET Streets are a 12.5" section width not tread width the tread is only ~9.5" they are just a hair smaller than the 28x10.5 ET Drags.

Did the rear springs start settling yet Chris?

Good to know...thanks. I'm looking at tire options for next year with the bigger motor. Those ET Streets might be perfect.

Thanks!! I really don't know what I'm doing... I'm just making it up as I go along. I could really use a mentor. This site is as close as that gets. But at least I had the sense to build a BBF!!

Not yet. I don't have the motor or tranny dropped in it yet though. With any luck that will happen this weekend and she will sit down more on the rear wheels. The Strange front brake kit will get here today. Once I get that on I'll be able to set it down on the wheels and get the motor in for a mock up. I still need to run the front bars for the 12 point cage into the engine bay that will attach to the motor plate as well. I'm still not sure if I'm going to hide them in the front fenders and then bring them back in after I pass the strut towers or if I should run them through the strut towers. Time will tell. Any suggestions on how to do that part are welcome.

After I got the rear end in I sat it down on the tires. Everything cleard fine. The only place I was concerned with is the front part of the fender at the bottom. It looks like I only have about a 1/2 inch of clearance. If these tires get taller at 100 miles an hour like I think they should I may have an issue. I may have to clearance the fender slightly to make it not rub. Once I get the front brakes on and it sitting on the ground I'll take a picture and show you what I'm talking about.

Other than that they look great. I went with the Billet Specialties wheels instead of the Weld wheels because the billet specialties were an SFI spec wheel. I'm not sure if I needed them or not but it wasn't much more money for the same style wheel.

....i also have dreams of sticking a set of 2.25:1 gears under it and taking it to Bonneville!! I want to join the 200 MPH club.

Hear that Blown473?? I'm going to make a run at thet fire breathing pickup you are building!!

Only seen that tight of clearance with 29's maybe once the rear springs settle the axle will move back.

The UPR control arms have adjustments for both the upper and lower. When I installed them I put them in at the recommend setting. I think it was 9 1/4 inches for the top control arms and 17 1/2 for the lower control arms. I could move it a bit that way. I'm not sure how much the axle will move back with weight on it. With those control arms on it, it is amazingly snug in there and really doesn't budge. It will obviously go up and down. But there is no side to side or front to back movement what so ever. I'm not that worried about it. I'll be sure it is right before I go to the track.

Got any suggestions as to how to run the front roll cage bars into the engine bay? Read the previous post I did in this thread for more details.

Going through the strut tower is probably about the only way, I had thought about trimming out the shape of the cage tube where it would pass just to the outside of the caster camber plate but not sure how it would work for you. That would seem easiest way to me versus trying to line up the holes and pass the tube through it with out making the hole to large to weld all the way around.

Yep. Just a flat piece of aluminium to hold the gauges. Nothing fancy.

I still have the truck. It is still set up to drag race. I have about (and I'm guessing here) a 425 horse power 466 engine in it now. It keeps up with the Corvette up to about 90 mph. Then the Corvette runs away. I'll keep the truck forever. I like it to much to get rid of it. Plus it will pull the Mustang to the track and back. I'd like to race the Mustang and the truck. You know pull in the track with the truck with the Mustang on the trailer and run them both while I'm there.
