I see I am not the only one to sell a nice vehicle to get a set of Kaase B9 heads.

I sold my 61 K mile 94 Lightning for the cash for the heads. I still have not figured out how to get the air cleaner to clear the stock hoodline in my 87 Turbo Coupe with the B9 installed tho.....

Once I have it figured out, I'll order the heads.

One Car at a time

I owned the Mach for 14 years. It got to be overexsposed and over seen at the car shows. A buddy of mine asked why I didn't sell the car and start a new one. I told him the only car I would rather have is a Boss 429 but original ones are too high and I don't like keeping the cars original.

He said "let's build one" The cost is near 70,000. I sold the Mach for $50,000. The new one is a definate step up.

Yeah, I measured. Unless I decide to use 2" - 2 1/2" k-frame spacers, there is no way the Kaase B9 intake will work.

Best I can do is use a Blue Thunder 4150 model intake with a 950 carb.

Still have not seen anyone post on here about making Fox chassis B9 headers........
