We performed a mad thrash in an attempt to squeeze the car into the 9’s at the end of the season, with a 9.94 at 134 MPH. The mad thrash taught us a few things, so we went right back to our friend Dave Zimmerman and his group of craftsmen at Team Z Motorsports for a few additional chassis updates to Project 666.

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.
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.
Recently we changed the brake system to a Wilwood racing system that included larger front rotors, replacing the rear drums with large rotors, and a set of super race calipers, along with a Wilwood Aluminum tandem master cylinder. But in order to make it manly, we converted our brake system to a manual.
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.
You learn a little something new everyday. Today’s lesson with our Project 666 Mustang; Ford 2G alternators and fires.
We started today to prep our Project 666 to begin the engine and tranny swap, by draining the engine and transmission fluids, removing the exhaust, and other components.
Steve and I have been wrenching away on our Project 666 car this week, in preparation for some new drive train components. Specifically, the engine and transmission. Like Steve wrote in the previous blog, we have identified our replacements, but our first task was to get the stock stuff outta the way.

Pro Power begins the engine build for Project 666 with a goal of not only making 675 plus horsepower, but also be able to hold together at redline through every shift and every quarter-mile trek.
When it comes to shoehorning a new, bigger engine into the framerails of a Fox Body Mustang, the stock hood isn’t very useful. The simple solution is to find an aftermarket hood that will accommodate the increase in engine size and we found a company that could meet all of our demands, and that company is Cervini’s Auto Design.
