Did our install in 8 hours, very easy if you are mechanically inclined and can follow a sheet of directions. The car "shits n gits" according to our clients.

I love your car HBMike, really nice

As far as the lowering kit ugh, I need a second job :(.

It would be nice to see yours, whiteside and RX (GretchenGotGrowl) together!

I am somewhat bias when it comes to green

I think your correct. All Factory 5 kits....want to do a GTM as a shop build in the future and twin turbo it.

rchrd, yes, the LFX is an easier tune.

PM if you want info.

The only FFR kit is the one on the lift. the guy damaged it. Everything else is either a genuine Shelby Car or a Superformance licensed cobra / Daytona.

The photos are at V's Performance in Orange CA. I did the install over there to familiarize Vlado with the superchargers so that he can crank them out here in southern California.

Edit: the car under the FFR is a Superformance Continuation GT40 with a 5.4L Supercharged and the Ford GT Transaxle. Vlado is making that beast fit into the classic GT40 engine bay.

Automatics will take more power just due to the nature of the torque converter / auto trans setup.

Good to know since i have a 2012 1LT automatic with 18" factory rims and tires. Was thinking of going aftermarket wheels and tires but staying 18". Is 18" better for performance and rwhp or going something bigger say 20"? I'm thinking smaller is better since less weight and mass to move around.
