427w Daytona Coupe

Hi  Bruce

I hope you and everyone there at FFR & the Engine Factory are keeping well.

Just a brief note to say a big thanks to you (and the teams behind the scenes) for your help over the past 14 months… following our visit (my son & I) back in September 2015, today I received notification that my Type 65 Coupe (#F5R1000708CPB) is fully road legal here in the UK.

We first started the build on 16th March 2016 – Right Hand Drive (please thank Fred for his help with the aluminium!!) / Complete kit / Independent rear suspension / 6.7ltr Ford 418w from The Engine Factory.

Drives & sounds amazing!!! First show booked for July ;0)

Thanks again everyone!

I want to thank Chris and all the Guys at Engine Factory for the Superb Engine, Clutch and transmission package that I bought as a package from them in 2011 for my FFR MK4.  I contacted them for advice based on my use as a daily driver, occasional autocross car.  I got the Engine Factory 331 stroker, added the Power steering pump and also had the Quick time steel bellhousing, and the TKO-600 transmission, complete with a hydraulic slave.  The transmission was setup for the engine and bolted right up with no issues.

While my car is now ready for paint, I have driven it with the body on for several short stints.  The engine has ample power for this car, The power band pulls strong and the transmission works with ease. The idle is about 1050 and sounds powerfull.   I am happy with my choice to get my engine /trans package from Engine Factory
