    Man... I didn't realize there were this many Mav guys around me. I'm sure we will meet up at some time.

    Okay so witch one of us knows how to weld? Thats taking up the most time in fab work & the welders I have been using are breaking my budget. We need to come together so our cars can be completed. I have only seen 3 Mavericks & 1 Comet riding around town.

    Welcome! Looks like a nice Maverick you got there. My dad also has an 05 GT but with a 5-speed. What kind of modifications did you do to the mustang to make it that fast?

    Last time I tried to weld I cried uncontrollably and saw a red dot in front of everything for about four days. Turns out sunglasses are not good enough.

    I built the motor so it could take the abuse. Very fragile stoke pistons and rods. So, a forged bottom end, Comp cams, headers, a Vortech supercharger putting out 12 lbs boost and a 100 shot of nitrous. I ran 11 flat on motor only and 10.48 with the spray. Not too shabby for a 3800 lb car. Of course, the suspension was set up to plant the power too. (640 rwhp)
