DAMN here I go again.... so for $200.00 I went and picked it up, it was missing everything but it did have a yukon rear diff with a richmond 4:10 so I made out there I guess...lol

    The only "ground effects" any RS ever had was the front air dam on the 84-86 RS models.

    The Mustangs never had "ground effects" either except for the same front air dam on the 79 PC, 80-81 Cobra, and 82 GT. The 1987 GT models were the first production Ford Mustangs with "ground effects".

    The 84-86 Saleen Mustangs had ground effect packages from Saleen obviously, but are not OEM Ford products.

    Same kit that is going on my 82 GT when I finally get back on that project. Sorry to see I am not the only one with tail pipe fitment issues on the back. Have the same issue on my 86 GT Road Racer Saleen look alike.

    My left side fit perfectly with no adjustments. The right side pushes against the rear valance and may require cutting the hanger off to fit properly.

    Boost ratio is 1.61. You take your AFR headed 274 hp net and get 441 hp at the flywheel without even tryin'.

    Greatest thing about the PowerDyne is the moderate, safe boost curve growth that wont over tax the chassis. Belt slip is the only enemy.

    What a great choice of power adder.

    You are in great company, aka

    The scoop looks good painted body color, usually they are the trim gray. Have my 86 Capri at the paint shop now, wondering now if I should do the same?
    Any info on how you made the vents functional?
