    Excellent thread! I too fell into the Arduino/vehicle rabbit hole (including the use of the same 3d printer). I never got to the PCB stage, but packaged the breadboard well enough for my needs. My...

    These old school ECUs are both incredibly flexible and somewhat limited at the same time. Since they mainly operate off the O2 sensors along with the MAF meter calibration, they are really good at...

    With the crazy low price of an On3 Mustang kit, has anyone successfully installed one on a Roadster? As much as I am still leaning toward the blower for the reasons above, the idea of a $1500 turbo...

    I must admit that while I like power and high speed on my bikes, I most enjoy tire spinning mayhem while banging gears in the Mustang. It is best if it lasts from first through third gear while...

    All very good points that are still pushing me toward a low boost blower on my existing combination. I agree that the engine should be setup for it, but luckily ring end gap and forged pistons are...

    While I agree the 347 is a good solution, I don't think it is cost effective for me. The stroker kit is at least $1000, I assume another $500 in machine shop work and my current heads are ported...

    I have owned a built 350 also that I put in a Malibu and was unimpressed (also didn't like seeing it burnt to the ground in Ogalala, NE). The SBF was always a better engine to me than a SBC and I...

    I have to say there is almost zero chance of a Coyote (or any other mod-motor Ford) making its way into my Roadster. As a longtime Ford blue guy, it is sacrilege, but I would likely drop in an LS...

    Have any links? I am guessing I haven't searched for the right thing. I have heard the combination of short wheelbase, 400+ HP and more weight in the rear does make these cars challenging. The one...

    Turbo, Supercharger or NA 302

    I have acquired a nice donor and am spending the next couple years fine tuning it until we embark on the build. The donor is sprinkled with all sorts of bolt-ons and likely produces around 300 rwhp,...

    Perhaps I should clarify the appeal of Tapatalk (and admitted drawback).

    Can we resurrect this topic? The landscape, pricing and options have changed quite a bit since 2011 and personally the availability of Tapatalk support pushes me toward the “other” forum as most of...

    You clearly get me :-) I take great pride in being cheap and there are times it definitely bites me or I simply must fork over some money with great pain.

    Thanks again for everyone's experience. I too have been thinking about this a very long time. I had Cobra models on my shelf 30 years ago. My high school friend built a FFR roadster using parts...

    I have not driven a FFR Roadster or Cobra yet, but am relatively confident I will love it. A local builder was nice enough to take me for a spin in his anniversary edition coyote powered roadster...

    Still great insight. As to cost, my goal is to simply not lose my shirt on the build. Breaking even or losing a few grand on the sale is fine.

    I looked into the build school and the minimum age...

    Build vs Buy

    Wow! I just finished reading your build and there are some similarities to what I am planning. I am curious why you chose a new 347 if the donor already had a built motor? I presume that decision...

    Still navigating these two forums for FFR, so hopefully this post is not too redundant.

    My eleven year old has concocted a master plan that results in him driving a Roadster for high school in a...
