Test fit the 18x10.5 +24mm $139 Mustang Tax Deal Specials on Gus this weekend. 

It will be a little bit of a hack job once the rubber gets on considering that the 275/35zr18s will be occupying the are where the fenders once were...

It's my 50th birthday present.

It's a stock car that had coilovers and 18s on it and I got it from a trade for a vehicle I had less than $800 in. I am slamming on big wheels and literally $60 tires, cutting the weight out and building a Stampie quality splitter and a DriftGrandpaDrift wang on the rear. Flares and self cut stickers will round it out. 

 Keeping It Simple Stampie!

You might want to upgrade from Stampie quality if you want it to work.

Well I considered Most Colossal Failure Of All Time by adding a eBay GT45 105trim with a 150 shot on the pencil thin rods that fill the 3UZ. I remembered that the engine and trans are going into the Panhard next winter.

You can always find another engine donor but Challenge glory only comes rarely.

Still a consideration, trying to figure out fuel. It's a PWM pump with a static regulator in tank, no return line. I don't want to spend big money on a pump that I will use one weekend. Once it's out and in the Panhard a Miata tank and 255LPH pump and 1:1 regulator will take care of fuel. Even then I am maxed out at about 8psi with a 76mm due to rod strength and lack of ignition control. Considering running fuel to a secondary 1 gallon fuel reserve and then running a  if pump and regulator from that. Fooling the ECU...

8psi is 8psi!

Why not just install a return line and run it the same as in the panhard?

It's an option. 

Honestly the factory ECU will control to 7psi with slightly larger injectors. I should just say fuggit.

Use it as a test vehicle to see how much boost it can take then sell it to Patrick.

Well, in a very unexpected twist, the 10.5" wheels fit(ish) without flares. 

It needs new ball joints in the left front. eBay joints will do the trick.

3lb field operated impact generator will resolve the clearance issues. Then removing weight and resetting ride height on the terribly cheap coilovers.

Hurray for Tequilavirus!

Got a little bit of fun done today. 

Right side is cut, heavily, and flares are affixed.
