With our mission to turn our Project 666 Fox body into a hardcore racing machine, our latest update involves the replacement of our OE-style Aeromotive fuel tank with the new six-gallon Stealth fuel cell armed with an internally-mounted A1000 fuel pump in the trunk of our nine-second Pony.

Launching on slicks or even drag radials puts an incredible amount of stress on the factory torque box, more than what it was designed for. Eventually, the cracks appear in the fatigued sheet metal and the mounting holes stretch out, which is why we turned to Wild Rides for our Project 666 Fox Body Mustang.

When it comes to building an engine that makes gobs of horsepower, you need a spark hot enough to correctly burn that additional fuel and air in the combustion chamber. For this tech feature, we are going to be installing a full Crane ignition system into our 666 Mustang Project car.

The car started out this year with a 408ci that made about 575 hp and was able to propel us in to the mid 10-second range in the quarter mile. But now it was time to install our badass high compression 427 that has been sitting for about two years… but the installation has been far from easy

The latest product from Innovate is their MTX-L all in one gauge, which only needs power, ground and a signal from the supplied wideband sensor. We install their newest, easy to use wide band sensor on our Fox body Mustang Project 666.

Project 666 gets fitted with new Kirkey racing seats, Holcomb seat brackets, a lightweight race steering column, and more in the latest round of upgrades to our ten-second quarter mile screamer.
The race-intended TCI C4 improves upon the reliability and durability that the C4 has long been known for, which is just what we’re looking for to mate with our naturally-aspirated, 427-inch Windsor motor producing nearly 700 horsepower. Join us for an in-depth look at TCI’s take on the C4.
It might have been awhile since you have seen an update on our 666. The Mustang is going to be used as a temporary race car for the 2011 PSCA racing season. The class we plan to run is Limited Street, though the Mustang will be there just to gain points while the real car is being built.
Our Project 666 car, a 1986 5.0 Fox-body Mustang, has recently undergone an upgrade to a Wilwood brake kit. The new brakes, rotors and calipers made a huge difference in stopping power but still lacked that little something for outrageously quick, stop-on-a-dime performance.
The Moser M9 is a bullet proof rear end housing that is a bolt-in replacement for the Ford Mustang platform. You’re already familiar with Project 666, our 1986 Mustang Coupe that is being built for low 10-second quarter mile times with 666 horsepower. Follow along with our full video as we show you everything you need to know about swapping your weaker 8.8 rear end for a bullet proof Moser fabricated 9-inch housing.
With Project 666, our ’86 Fox Body, we wanted to stuff a 275/60/15 Drag Radial on a 15 x 10 wheel and not have it look like a inner-city low rider with the wheels hanging out the wells. That meant it was time for the hammer. It was time – to clearance the wheel wells.
Tomorrow was going to be track day for Project 666. Everyone was ready to see what that old ‘stang could do, I was excited to see what it could do, so we took it for a leisurely spin.

Today was prep day for a test and tune session at the drag strip tomorrow. Part of getting ready for the track is installing a roll stop so we could do monster, tire-shredding burnouts.

The challenge was laid out to me by the crew here at power TV: put together a potent naturally aspirated Ford Windsor based engine to topple the 666 horsepower mark for the in house Project 666 Mustang. In addition, it needed to be reliable as it creeped past the 7,500 RPM mark through all the gears.

Automotive gauges have a history as long as the automobile itself, with tachometers (adapted from instruments used on steam locomotives and industrial machines) first appearing on dashboards in 1903. Since that time, gauges have come a long way, and one company advancing the state of the art is Auto Meter. They have been making performance racing instruments for automotive, marine, and motorcycle applications since 1957, and they’ve become synonymous with aftermarket gauges thanks to their broad range of products and applications.

With Project 666, our Fox-body Ford Mustang almost 2 years in the making, this year’s LA Invasion was a day of trials and tribulations. Leading the charge for 666 was shop wizard Sean Goude, trusty wrench and sales guy Tom “Terror” Bobolts, myself, and my pregnant wife Melissa. We were a motley crew. Check out our story, plus videos!
