Project 'MILD 2 WILD'

Time has come for Project MILD 2 WILD on our 2KOOL CUSTOMS in-house project Hot Rod '1FUN TOY', which can be seen below in it's photo shoot for 'polk audio' and also in our 2KOOL CUSTOMS sponsor appreciation page here - http://2koolperformance.ca/custom.htm As always, it's going to get ugly before it gets pretty, so join along with us as we begin this project which has gained the support from the biggest names in the Industry!

Without our proud sponsors getting this wild ride to three consecutive National FUN FORD Weekend Series 'Best of Show' Championships wouldn't have been possible. To show our thanks we'll now take the support we've earned and complete our goal of running 9 seconds in 'show form', all to keep maximum exposure on the great companies that have bought into our business moto - "LOOK GOOD & GO FAST"

It will take some very talented people and a crap load of power to pull this project off so we encourage you our clients, friends, and associates to 'ENJOY THE RIDE' along with us cool.gif

In preparation for HP that would turn most street rides into pretzels, we're getting ready here for a DYNAMIC RACING TRANSMISSIONS 'Mighty Mite' racing C4, thanks to Harold and JR MILLER. The most important part to our project will be getting some crazy HP to the rear wheels 'under control', and for that reason we turned to DYNAMIC. We'll have pics of the new tranny later in the season. First the new motor must be built , tested, and dyno'd so Harold and JR will have some #'s to play with.

Quality skilled technicians, always at work on our CUSTOM projects. Here's forums member Mustang:Ride The Horse carefully removing the stock tranny. And 'no' we're not sponsored by COKE - we wish!

With the tranny dropped, there will be lots of time for ideas for our center consol area. Switching over from the stock T-5 to DYNAMIC'S Racing C4 will bring some interior changes, some of which we already have some KOOL ideas in mind.

Bob Ritzman, from B & M Racing and Performance Products has offered to help us with a shifter when the time comes. Thanks again Bob! cool.gif

Like many projects before it, we're already hearing " why on earth " " how could you ever " and "what are they smoking ". Sure our ride is still in show form ( shown here below ), but when it comes to taking a car that on a good day may run high 12's on a lil sqeeeze.. and now is heading for 9's, "PRETTY" and "Show Ready" is not our priority for the time being. When done, this ride will be back ready for show.... with a Ho-Lotta Go!

Wrinkled tire photo's are where this project is heading, so step aside Monster Trophies.. "IT'S ON" tease.gif

Stay 'tuned' cool.gif

pretty lil 5.0.... out you come! :P

Mickey Thompson Sponsors Project MILD 2 WILD

We would like to thank Don Sneddon from Mickey Thompson for his show of support, in offering our project a pair of ET Street 'Radials' joy.gif These are the tires thought to be illegal last season because of the numbers they were turning in pro competition.

Check out these world records, recorded on this particular Mickey Thompson product - ET record is 7.663@186.58MPH and the top end record was 7.704@189.87MPH.

We looked to Mickey Thompson so our wild ride doesn't come 'unglued' at the strip when we shoot for 9's :P

Thanks again Don

Mr. Gasket Sponsors Project MILD 2 WILD

We would like to thank Mike Stasko from Mr Gasket for his show of support, in offering our project a set of LAKEWOOD Drag Shocks and Struts, along with a Driveshaft safety loop! With the numbers we plan to turn with 1FUN TOY, a free wheel'n driveshaft is something we don't want to see coming through the floor, 'or' plunging into the ashpalt on track runs! Thanks a bunch Mike!

We looked to Mr Gasket and LAKEWOOD, to help transfer weight during launches on our soon to be newly powered 'hell ride' :P

http://www.mrgasket.com/ check out the massive line-up of performance products from Mr Gasket. You can acquire all parts right here through 2KOOL PERFORMANCE at the lowest price in Canada! cool.gif

Sponsors Project MILD 2 WILD

We would like to thank Jenniffer Burgi from ACCUFAB for helping us with a new throttle body. Our project ride will have to LOOK GOOD & GO FAST , and with the quality of the parts coming out of ACCUFAB, there was no where else to turn for help in this department. What you see here is 80mm of sucking demon, that will go along way in getting us into the 9 second range!

Keep in mind, you can buy all your ACCUFAB products, right here through 2KOOL PERFORMANCE. We provide the highest quality products on the market for all our clientele, with an unmatched product availabilty & Price!

Thanks again Jen... part looks "SWEET"

MILD 2 WILD In the werx! wanna_race.gif

Thanks to Joe D'Sousa and his staff for providing their world class engine building services for our DART block 331 Project Build. At this point, and with VORTECH's support, Joe is telling me "we need no stinking Nitrous!" But we'll hang on to our NX EXPRESS sponsor'd products, as we like that pretty painted tank in the Hatch of 1FUN TOY

Here's some recent pic's Joe has forwarded along.....with some points Joe's made of their prep services for our project

notice the screw in frost plugs which strengthen the block
and are a lot safer

Wanted to say 'thanks' to Mike Linley from Latemodel Restoration Supply for providing some trick 'clear' taillight housings which we'll custom spray with some purple pearl clearcoat... They should turn out pretty 'slick'. We'll throw some pics up of the end result later in the project build

For now.. make sure to check out this link provided, as we're LATEMODEL RESTORATIONS wholesale distributor here in Canada!.


These taillights can be had for only $209 by contacting us at sales@2koolperformance.ca

Again.. thanks Mike

We want to thank Joe, Jeremy and Mark from UPR Products for their support of 1FUN TOY and 'Project MILD 2 WILD'. We met both Mark and Jeremy last year at the Ohio 'Fun Ford Weekend' event and they were just 'super' with us in seeing our project car first hand. Jeremy will be sending us up a complete suspension kit, including their 'Pro Series' K-Member and 'Pro Series' Rear kit. This is a MONSTER help for us in our quest for some 'scary' 1/4 mile times next season.

You can see their great products here http://www.uprproducts.com/ and keep an eye on our 2KOOL 'Online SPECIALS' page here:http://www.2koolperformance.ca/specials/index.htm As well, we'll be working closely with UPR in the future to bring you wicked specials on their quality products! cool.gif

Thanks again Jeremy You_Rock_Emoticon.gif

HOLLEY sends MONSTER Headers! cool.gif

Anything that says "HOOKER" gets our attention! and putting that name in 1FUN TOY simply had to be done! :P yes, that's going to get me in trouble tease.gif
With 20+ lbs of Boost and Nitrous on tap, we'll have a whole lotta air come'n into our new engine and it looking for an easy way OUT. Thanks to Matt Held at HOLLEY, that won't be a problem anymore! Matt supplied us with their wicked new super trick 'take apart n' put together' 1 3/4" Ceramic Coated headers, which look like every exhaust installers dream! Separated between each tube at the flange and having all tubes join in two's down into the piping, you can pretty much make an octapus out of these puppies! Our engine guru Joe D'Sousa should welcome these bad boys BIG TIME!

Make sure to check out the link provided, as we provide the HOLLEY lineup of performance products here through 2KOOL PERFORMANCE.
