ok, time to start running with the big dogs. i have a potential power adder going on my car. a custom suspension racing shop told me that i could put a fuel cell in my trunk with a sumped pump. and a 99-04 gt rear axel would bolt up without too much modification. what do you guys think?

I think they are fulla**** and there are quite a few cars running very quickly with an IRS.

Regardless of whether it's needed or not, the "without too much modification" part is a crock. Mustangs can swap solid axle and IRS without much effort. The MN12 is a different animal. I'm sure it could be done, though; anything can be done with enough time and money.

#1 - It has been done quite a few times.
#2 - It requires an extensive amount of work.
#3 - Unless you're planning on running quicker than mid-10's, why?

What the heck are you doing for an engine? There are a couple full weight MN12's now that are pulling 1.5X 60' times and running well into the 10's on completely stock IRS (save for gear/diff changes). They aren't breaking shafts.

Also, for info on the solid axle swap, run a search over on sccoa.com. You'll find quite a bit of info.
