Hey Tim
Nicely done. Have seen you over the years at SVTp.
I bought Flying Fred's 00R and took delivery of my 302S around the same time you did.
Could you tell me what you have done to the 302S to get that RWHP?
I'm running 397RWHP and could use a bit more but a little concerned about doing something untested or too aggressive.
Thank you and have fun,
Bill

Not a lot to report , the chassis is going to the paint shop early next week to paint the roof and touch up the cage .
I bought a Eastwood buff kit and had a tech at the dealership fab up a stand for the motor , some photos of the headers after polishing , will finish them up tomorrow

What they looked like when I started

Welded up tabs for the springs to hold the collectors on and put a flange on the collector for v-band clamps for the exhaust

That 397 RWHP number is right around what we have seen with the 4 Boss 302S cars we have had on our dyno . Long tube headers will give you between 20 and 25 RWHP without any tuning changes and the a/f is still good. I have used the American Racing 1"7/8 headers and x-pipe and they have good ground clearance and only required a small dimple on one primary tube to clear the corner of the road race oil pan .
We have had a 14 Boss S on the dyno with BBK longtubes that made less power and they hang about 3/4" lower so I would stick with the American Racing setup .
The CJ intake , part # M-9424-M50CJ , dual 65mm throttle body , # M-9926-CJ65 and cold air intake , M-9603-M50CJ will give another 35+ RWHP , but you will need a custom tune
My current setup with an SCT tune makes between 465-478 RWHP on our Dynapack dyno. The power range is from multiple dyno runs on different days and some different race fuels.
I have been racing this combination for over 2 years with no issues
My Boss S does have a custom air box but we have seen similar numbers with the Ford racing cold air setup .

That’s awesome , what’s the story on the GT40
Doug's raced it for many years, Original factory race car with storied history. You'vemost likely seen pictures of it burning on top of a sand berm at Sebring in the 60's. Was sent back to England and repaired/rebuilt. Been raced ever since.

No , gained some torque but moved the peak up , I will find my dyno sheets or look on the dyno and get you some comparison numbers
