Description

Hans N,s 69 mustang dubbed GT2 363

Below is a quote from Hans about the car.

GT2 is for "Gran Tourismo" (in the italian original sense) and Turbo. Some highlights of the parts list, not all parts are final yet as we're only about half way through the shopping:

Ford SB 363 stroker, DART block, all forged & roller, 0 balance, Arias pistons
Single turbo (probably T-76), intercooler
Big Stuff 3 ECU
BBK SSI-R intake
T-56 trans from Pro Motion, McLeod RXT clutch, hydraulic
AJE front coil over struts w/adjustable A-arms, improved roadrace K-member, double adj. Koni's, manual rack & pinion
13" Cobra brakes, 4-piston Brembo calipers
FAB9 9" rear & TrueTrac, TCP leaf spring kit, adj. Varishocks
TCP torque arm & Panhard bar
11.65" Cobra brakes rear
18" Shelby CS56 wheels
Toyo R888 rubber, 255/35 and 295/30
Speedhut gauges
69 Deluxe interior, black
Bielstein seats
Rollcage & Simpson harness

To answer some obvious questions right of the bat:
Front suspension: why struts and not UCA / LCA and strut rods? To make room and save weight up front. The AJE front K-member and A-arm setup will save a LOT of weight and make it possible to shave the shock towers to make room for the turbo install. Down under RRS is doing good on the track with strut suspension for Mustangs.
Rear suspension: TCP gBar and EvM 3-link is all the rage for Mustangs so why leaf springs? To be different and to show that it can work! This is a 50/50 street and road race build and the leafs, torque arm and panhard will do a great job if suspension travel is kept small.
Brakes: why no Wilwood 6-piston? Well kill or overkill? It's not about bragging rights but selecting the right hammer for the job. Also there IS a budget! ;)

Builder is CPR Streetmachines, engine by Total Performance (of recent Obsidian fame). Both in San Diego.
