I got mine from Boffin Motorsports. His name is Len Ewell 503 624 2659. He uses a correct 427 cobra gas pedal that nobody else is offering to my knowledge. The linkage exits the footbox out the side witch is real close to the header on a 351 windsor engine but is no problem if you install carefully. Nice guy to deal with. Kit was $350 +or-. Well worth it, works great.

No, not any kits that I'm aware of. Not sure it's necessary though. The parts are all readily available and pretty simple to set up. These are the two definitive threads I found on the subject, each with other links inside:

This is what I put together. Total cost $123. Have ready to install when my engine goes in. I'll cut 1/4-28 RH threads on each end of the 1/4" steel rod once the final lengths are determined.

Just replied to Ross about this....


AND LIKE ED JUST LISTED THE PARTS AS I WAS TYPING!!!!!!

Folks, this is an easy thing to build yourself; and here's the kicker- NO TWO ARE GONNA BE THE SAME!


Make your own with some parts from McMaster Carr and your local hardware store.

Ball joint links, some stainless rod- the hardest piece to find and machine, and a bunch of 1/4- 20 nuts and bolts.

Problem with a pre-made kit is....You still will have to thread the stainless rod to length for your specific car. Tapping stainless is a BITCH, and if you can find a machine shop to thread it for you (throw em' a few $) you will be a lot less stressed! Tons of good pictures on this forum for ideas on how to!!!!

Mike Forte was suppose to be putting a kit together, I'm not sure whatever happened to his efforts though

With all the variations in how we do our gas pedals, footboxes, and so on I suspect there is no such thing as a "kit". He'd have to sell a pile of parts that we'd modify and adapt ourselves. Then 5 seconds after someone showed the kit on this site someone else would post a parts list of where to get it all for cheaper. Just guessing though.
