Amazing build thus far. I changed out the blue coil covers on mine as well and agree that they look great.

Love the red Whipple, had no idea they offered colors. The red is a great match to your car.

What clutch are you running?

Thank you! Running a McLeod RST/Light Flywheel and Steeda clutch spring. Threw a DSS aluminum shaft on for safety. Just grabbed some Ford Performance hood struts since I may be popping the hood a little more than usual. Oh yeah, put some old school Drift wheels on for a little weight savings. Velgens will have to wait until I recover from the build cost.

Very nice upgrades, well done. Only one thing, kinda takes away from why one buys a Boss to begin with, especially removing that manifold. Not sure if it would be cheaper to have a GT and of performed the upgrades and changes, has been done many times over though. Only my opinion after somebody mentioned that in comment section of a twin turbo, stripped down Boss article. Makes you think, is more less or less more?

Thank you. I totally get that. But I've always loved the Boss. Always loved to go really fast. I have done GT's before. In the end, it was just another GT. An 8 second GT, but still a GT.

I got the Boss at a steal. With the forged motor, it was a no brainer to build this car. I'm at half the cost of the 1994 GT I built and the drivability is night and day. A procharger or Paxton would allow me to keep the Boss manifold, but wouldn't look half as good IMO.

Roger that on the Boss, can understand better with GT explain. It's still awesome and one of those things you sure can live with.
