460 in a 68 Mustang Fastback

The 4 four turbos are already in place including the pipes that supply them with fresh air and the pipes that leads to the intercoolers.

Pipes from the intercoolers to the carb box is already done.

The air Cleaner is positioned adjacent to the carb box to get fresh air from the hood scoop.

Please visit the link to view the pictures:

See how the 69 FB is slang really low.

Below is the picture of the Roll Cage's front members. You can see that the firewall has been moved back 8 inches.

The roll cage was done to withstand the tremendous torque of the 460. The assembly will continue towards the roll bar.

The dash assembly will also be moved back further to compensate the moving of the firewall. The dash will be restomoded with Auto gauges and flip safety switches. Moving the firewall back created a space that I can use to do a functional Side Pipe.

Seats will also be move 10 inches backwards, making this a true 2 seater.
