Yes you read that title right, we at BFI have begun a new project and its a Fox drag car. The beast is a 91 2 dr bought about a yr ago as a semi-runner needing a head gasket and possibly a new transmission. Head gasket was weeping between #1 and #2 and was swapped out with a SPA high compression head gasket. Trans turned out to simply be bad linkages/bushings and was good as new after being replaced.
Video made this past weekend for its maiden voyage to the track:
It has now been stripped down as bare as possible and we were able to get out a weighed 317lbs! Not bad for a car that begun life with only 2150lbs to haul from the factory. Also managed to kill the OEM clutch at the strip. This week a new clutchnet clutch and Jegs racing seat for the return trip to the strip.
Plans are to continue the upgrade in steps, finally reaching(hopefully) 400hp with a BT aba swap. Next major step is a small turbo on the existing Digi set up and motor, mostly as an experiment to see if we can get digi to run with boost. Following that plans are for 2 steps of ABA turbo builds. The first a medium boost set up running ABA motronic. Then a big turbo high boost quest for low ET's
