Hey new to the forum,I have a 1986 T-bird with some goodies I just started to do my UPR front conversion.I went to the track june 20 and ran a 12.380@112.38.I could have had a better run but the car was getting loose at the end so I let off a little I am hoping to hit the 11 sec range next time out.The UPR kit will drop like 75 lbs and fix my loose motor mounts that are hanging on for dear life.

here are some more picks
I am in the process of changing my gears to either 4.11 or 4.33 as you can see mymy 60ft time sucks I need the gears and a higher stall but I still drive it on the street so hard to decide.

Is this a drag only car or a street car man?

It is a street car all the way!I just removed the a/c because the condenser made the car run too hot around town but it was a daily driver until the 100* temps down here in florida now it is just a weekend car but it is very fun to drive this grocery getter it's a sleeper for sure.

This is a great car, I love it. Motor looks well put together, and almost the setup I want when I'm "done" with mine one day

Here's the link to the top 25, my Cad-T-bird is falling down the list.

Sounds like a great car you have there, keep up the great work.

for your k-member kit does it just come with front coil-overs only or back coil-overs only or both front and back? also does it break easy or strong when put in?
