    Sub-frame connectors

    Hey Mike. I have Global West, and I am very happy with them. I used them because I have a convertible, and it needs all the support I can give it. I don't think it is a bad idea to strengthen up these old unibody cars, especially if you are going to have a lot more horsepower and more aggressive suspension and tires. Some pics attached and welding courtesy of Mike at Latoracing on the forum...

    1970 Convertible Restoration

    RPM is right. The top one is a brace to keep the actual panhard bar drivers side bracket from moving. This is an enhancement found in some of the kits that are offered today. There is a ton of material on Panhard Bars and Watts Links on the Internet, so you can get your fill of the technical stuff.. But simply , the lower bar allows you to adjust the roll center for the car. This was done on the race prepared Boss 302s and is in the Boss Suspension manual. (See attached). Got mine from Chris Alston/TCP. Super high quality stuff, and excellent instructions. http://www.totalcontrolproducts.com/panhard.html 1970_TA_Mustang_Suspension.pdf

    Used Foose Knuckle rims 18" x 9.5" with 5.5" backspace. Rolled the inner fenderwell edges. Cut off the axle bumper brackets on the inside of the wheel well. I have plenty of clearance on the inside could have gone with another 1/2" of backspace and a slightly wider tire, but didn't want to take chances on rubbing. Although, not likely with my panhard bar setup.

    Mike. I ran 3/8” stainless stock fuel line from NPD from tank to stock mechanical fuel pump location. Then ran Earls line and AN fittings to FiTech system. By EFI return line goes to a AN 6 bulkhead fitting which goes through the driver side fender well near the stock supply line location. Mike (Latoracing) is going to run my EFI return line and weld a fitting to my tank when he does my exhaust. The Earls fitting in hoses are really easy to assemble and don’t require any special tools. The fittings are a little expensive but I wanted that look

    Hi Amps, need serpentine

    2 groove is a great idea!!

    Shorty Headers

    My Hedman headers have both. Ball and socket is way more flexible in terms of aligning your exhaust.

    69 351W exhaust headers--what works best?

    I also have the Hedman elite headers. I use Ford factory 5.0 graphite header gaskets and put a thin layer of copper RTV on them and use Stage 8 Locking Bolts

    Meet Virginia

    Hey MN69, cool to have the kids involved. One serious comment though, hope you don't mind. I would put jackstands on the back, not have the car on ramps. Or, reverse one of the ramps so that one is facing forward and one backwards, so the car has no way of rolling backwards if for some reason it gets bumped in the front.

    Hi Amps, need serpentine

    Right if you use a Pertronix II that will work. I mis-named their ignition box, it is the Digital HP. http://www.moreignition.com/ I think the Holley is a good choice.....
