Our Project Biting the Bullitt 1965 Ford Mustang made it’s long-awaited debut at the NMCA WEST’s World Street Finals in Bakersfield, California recently, making consistent high nine-second runs.
Drag racers are always looking for ways to make their car faster and more consistent at the race track. A properly installed anti-roll bar can lead to reduced 60-foot times and improved consistency at the track.
Since equipping Project Biting the Bullitt with a specially-built 427ci Dart engine, we’ve seen a lot of great things happen to our ’65 Mustang, including a Powermaster alternator upgrade. Check it out inside!
Today, we’re going to take a look at the exhaust system that will be riding under our Biting the Bullitt ’65 Mustang, which begins with one of Flowmaster’s U-Fit three-inch exhaust systems that we’ll then pair with
The Racepak SmartWire is a completely-programmable, solid-state electronics solution for controlling all of the components in your hotrod or racecar. Take a look inside as we detail some of its highlights and install one into our Project Biting The Bullitt Paxton-supercharged 1965 Mustang.
We get our project Biting the Bullitt one step closer to the street and strip by finishing up the installation of our TCI Super Streetfighter 4L80E transmission, including wiring and programming the EZ-TCU, as well as adding a cooler, pan and fluid.
We like Lokar’s billet aluminum throttle pedal assembly for classic 1965-70 Mustangs. It looks fabulous and functions very well because it completely replaces your Mustang’s factory-installed throttle linkage with crisp cable function and light throttle effort.
So how do you properly fuel and cool a 1000 hp, supercharged 1965 Mustang? Project Biting The Bullitt gets a fuel system from FUELAB and Aeroquip. We also install a custom radiator from AFCO Racing and get the car ready for its debut.
In this installment of project updates on our Project “Biting The Bullitt” supercharged 1965 Ford Mustang, we take a look at the installation of AIRAID’s U-Build-It air intake system to collect fresh air from the left fender to feed into our Paxton supercharger.
In this tech review, we’ll be taking a look at Jiffy-Tite’s line of high quality, easy-to-use quick disconnect fitting for nearly every fluid use on a vehicle on our Project Biting The Bullitt 1965 Ford Mustang.
1,000 horsepower, 91 octane, and reliability are all words that you normally don’t hear together. But that is exactly what we are going for with our 427 cubic inch small block Ford destined for our ’65 Mustang we call “Biting the Bullitt”. Follow along through the entire engine build and engine dyno sessio
Our 1,000 horsepower, Paxton supercharged 427ci ’65 Mustang project is really beginning to take shape. With the front and rear suspension installed, we move on to fitting the engine and transmission, along with a few other pieces as we get close to starting it for the first time.
The rear suspension of a vehicle shouldn’t be a place to cheap out. With 1000 HP, we needed a way to transmit all that power to the pavement. We installed an Autoworks mini tub kit, 9-inch from Strange, suspension from Calvert, Wilwood brakes, and Weld wheels rapped in M/T drag radials into our ’65 Mustang
Anyone that has ever tried to stuff a tall deck engine into a first generation Mustang knows it can be painful. Also, the stock Mustang suspension design is a bit prehistoric, but we plan to change that by installing a TCI Mustang Custom IFS, Wilwood disc brake conversion, and more!
Check out our update on out project Biting the Bullitt 1965 Mustang where we finally get the engine on the dyno at QMP Racing. Also we update you on our TCI Mustang II front suspension conversion and preview what our next update will be.
When building a race car, one of the most misunderstood parts of the build can be the roll cage. Different frame designs and modifications made to that frame all require different attributes to the cage’s design. We break down the rules bar by bar using a Chris Alston’s Chassisworks pre-bent cage on a ’65 ‘Stang
This last Thursday and Friday Video Editor Jeff Garrison was at QMP Racing filming our 427ci small block Ford build. During the filming he took pictures on my Canon 7D as well, but like a kid in a candy store, I requested some cell phone cam shots as well during the build.
1000 Horsepower, 91 octane, and reliability, all words that you normally don’t hear together. Right here is the newest recruit, a blown and carbureted, 427 cubic inch small block Ford for our ’65 Mustang we call “Biting the Bullitt.” Inside is a look into the parts.
A Load-O-Matic distributor is old technology and provided one of the first versions of a vacuum advance distributor. While this was the hot ticket when it was new, it has since been deemed archaic and troublesome. Upgrading to a DUI HEI-type distributor was going to be a simple solution to our ignition woes.
We are proud to announce our next project build (which is actually one of my personal cars) called “Biting the Bullitt”. The premise behind the Mustang build to show the fine line that we walk between a simple build, reliability, and all-out horsepower. Come check out our plans!
