Quiet an awesome car this one. Read a post by the owner's brother on another forum I frequent that it really is a true street car... driven to and from every event and they are also hoping to break into the 7's soon!!! Amazing accomplishment for a street driven car, let alone our beloved 1UZ.

Definitely agreed!

Quite a fan of both your cars, the attention to detail, etc gone into the FoPar build is just amazing. And as for the Capri, well being a Ford man at heart and with the love for the 1UZ, it ticks all the right boxes. Certainly helps having a soft spot for the Capri's, we have a tube chassis one ourselves but with the trusty old cleveland on board though.

Plus the little Cobra 4.6 Capri ...
Well they have the right amount of valves...

Yeh it has worked well for us. Has run a best so far of 9.05 @ 148 with a few descent wheelstands along the way, haha. It's just running the typical setup, 393ci, alloy heads, methanol, mech injection and so on. Would be good to see how your brother's setup would go in a lighter chassis car.
