Cool build, got any pics? Been considering a new edge 460 build myself. What did you use for a swap kit? Any major issues?

Thanks D

used a granatelli kmember, homemade spacers to drop the kmember down, pair of midlegth fox headers, it really isnt a bad fit whatsoever, oh and a canton pan

keep an eye out for used stuff on here and the bay! dont need to spend a ton to make all this work.

the fastest pass so far was 11.90 but that was only MY 6TH EVER PASS on the track...with the et it is a low 11 second car, and with a little tuning may hit 10's

nothing high end about the build, buti learned alot on the way!

Thanks for sharing. I've been contemplating a new edge BBF build myself.

To the OP: is the car full interior and what is your weight? Trying to figure out how much heavier these are than a fox body.

EDIT: Just noticed you're in Philly. I assume you run the car at Atco. Send me a msg next time you go, I would like to check out your build.

Cool....seems pretty good on the weight at 3400. My 01 GT was 3500 with me in it. I have to fight weight with my 71 Mach and 09 GT500......The Shelby is 4115 with me and 1/4 tank of gas....ugh! My Mach ought to be dropping a bunch of weight this time around as I rebuild it....so we'll see....good looking ride ya got there......D

Beautiful looking car!!! Have a link to your build?

Also OP, sounds like a stout car and nice mild build. Hoping to get mine going soon as well!

I don't know how much weight your going to lose, all that welding is probably going to add weight lol
