Yes!! No way I would not hang a Chinese guy called Wang out to hang..... or expose myself either. The Wang (the Nine lives wing...) looks great and will be installed for the next race.

I met this young guy at Pittsburgh International Race Complex during the Shelby event and then at Woodward cruise. He’s in school (college) and he’s from China . And his name is
Xian Wang lol. Look at his license plate.

Ok, mercury aside..... (still can't get over that....)..... Found a new place to stretch the credit card.... talking to Ben Calimer about a G-force forged gear MT82.... Even with the 23mm spline is good upto 700hp... Getting tired of repairing the regular grenade boxs... Totaled up the cost of my spare tranny... and it comes to 50% of the new G-force just in parts......

this would leave the car ready for a Paxton or Procharger set up with 600 rwhp one day.... in the distant future.

Yes, a complete tranny and he was kind since already bought two stage 2's from him before. Nice guy, but you have to call him, emails etc just dont get to him, too busy i guess..

I have said it before, and I will mention it again.
Call Rockland Standard Gear. Ask for Mike Maida in Racing department. Tell him Bruno sent you. Talk to him and listen.
Order a Tranzilla and be done with your transmission woes forever. Period.

+1 I would not waste my time and money upgrading the MT82 with the amount of serious tracking you do. Get a T56 Magnum XL, put a cooler on it, never worry again.

I guess my idea is to leave everything relatively safe for a 7950 redline. At least for the last second passes, that should get me almost 140 mph in 4th.

was going over the parts... last time we built the engine we ordered BR3E-6K868 D oil squirters... But they hit the pistons, so we left them out for lack of time.... The part had the number BR3E-EA stamped on it. Wondering if any one had a clue??? Tasca has been making lots of little errors lately.

I don't know about the oil squirters but it seems it's common for Ford to physically mark (via stampings or castings) parts with numbers different than the catalog P/N. What is on my Torsen diff is totally different than it's P/N.

BR3Z-6K868-D is correct (there is a -E now for 40% more). The numbers stamped/cast into the part are routinely different from parts catalog numbers.

Well as we put everything together... Having a issue with the K1 conrods and the Wiesco pistons.. They rub with the oil squiter jets.. Is a this common problem??? Might have to use the original block off plates and have one fabricated out of a oi jet (the broken con rod took it out).

Could bend the jets pipes out of the way but...... maybe better off with out.....
