Is that enough fuel pressure from what I am reading on that gauge on the left of your instrument panel?

Patrick suggests it be closer to 6.5 however the 1/2" ID fuel feed line is delivering more than enough for right now.  I'll add a washer before test hits and get it to 6psi.

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .

Yea, I've got a buddy with a 2013 mustang with the 5.0 who road races.  He got ALL carried away with the suspension, brakes, roll bar, oil breathers/catchers, etc...  but left the engine pretty much alone, aside from a Cobra Jet intake, tuner, and bolt-on's.  It doesn't even have headers.  Never had the valve covers off, and he BEATS ON IT for LONG periods of time every time he takes it to the track.  He has done this for about 3 years, and that modern 5.0 shows zero signs of slowing down.  Color me VERY impressed.

I needed a single Jack point for the front and thought "what the hell"
So I drilled a 1 5/8" hole in the center of the bumper and weld in an 8"  .083" wall, chromolly tube.

Now I have a sjp and tow point for the car.

Hope my bumper doesn't rip off when I test this contraption.

Hmmm, thatís the bumper support?  Not sure I would trust that as a sjp.  Towing sure.  You canít jack it up on the center of the k member?

I dropped the car when jacking on the kmember and the Jack went through the oil pan.  Super expensive mistake.

This mod is many many times safer and stronger I'm thinking.

I'm adding gussets, boxing in two areas of the bumper and cutting a bunch of lightening holes in the near future.

Plan "B"
The factory bumper with struts weighed in @ 45 lbs.
Decided to fabricate my own using 1.625" .095 wall chromolly for the struts and 2x 2.0" .083" chromolly for the bumper.
When finished it should weigh in @ 23 lbs.
