Going fast isn’t hard to do with the right power adder and a newer Coyote. With boost, or nitrous, or both, these suckers can haul ass and that means SFI rated bellhousings are a necessity for serious racers. Not only are they required at certain performance levels, but also smart if you want to keep your car and yourself safe should something fail. There is not doubt that the factory stuff was never designed to live under drag racing stresses so McLeod’s spun aluminum SFI unit is the way to go. And did we mention it also has titanium in it?
Everyone loves titanium.
Here is all the info from the folks at McLeod:
McLeod Racing expands their aluminum bellhousing products to include the Ford 5.0L Coyote Drag Racing applications. The bellhousing is SFI approved and is equipped an inner TMS Titanium liner.
This bellhousing comes equipped with an inspection window, which is removable with six grade 8 bolts. This eliminates the need to remove the bellhousing to adjust the clutch. Using the spun aluminum process, McLeod is able to produce an extremely accurate bellhousing that is lightweight and compact in size. The backplate is then made from CNC machined 6061 T6 aluminum.
“The added part number to our bellhousing selection makes the product line more accessible for more people,” says Bob Scheid, Dir. Of Business Development. “We want to provide great products for all cars and applications.”
The bellhousing only weighs 14 lbs. to ensure that no extra weight is added to the car. For added protection, McLeod added a TMS Titanium inner liner. The unit is built with a narrow body that can hold both small and large ring gears, but leaves plenty of tunnel room for tight builds.
