Well if that is a required thing, that you have to have 9000 rpm = 150... then you tell us the tire dia. and the gears.

hopefully this weekend I will have a better idea on tire dia. as far as rear end gearing and tranny
t-5 has many options as you know so tweaking will be no problem except cost, not so sure about rear yet. I discussed with john v. the possibility of standerd axel type with longer arms, but a friend keep pushing me towards early90"s t-bird independent rear clip haven't made up my mind yet but leaning johns direction for simplicity
thanks for all replys

Garth is using a zetec motor.

Which means bellhousing is ordinary Ford 4 cylinder...

But I'd go Duratec even with the expense of a bellhousing.
It is more cost effective since the engine is so much better in the first place...

What Rallymech was getting at was that this forum 'has only one rule, which is that you have your full real name and real location in your profile. (not that it can be confirmed as real, and there is actually another rule about not making personal attacks, which is never enforced)

So, update your profile so people know who and where you are ... it can be helpful and is believed to 'moderate' stupidity and increase accountability on the forum.
