Many years and still racing in IT but very interested in building a new car for F Production. I will be using a 1992 Ford Mustang with the 2.3 motor. My question is and yes I have looked in my GCR is it mandatory to run a Fuel Cell and what about the fire system? Thanks in advance and looking forward to running in F production.

Fire system is mandatory, and, since the stock fuel tank is not within the wheelbase and between the frame rails (it's behind the axle), a fuel cell is required as well. I had a friend build a hot street 2.3 many years back - it was surprisingly quick!

Can the fuel cell be the one made to fit in the spare well be used along with a metal cover over it? Fire system with 3 nozzles minimum?

Yes, as long as there is a physical barrier covering it.

I started to build one several years ago but ran out of time. I have a stripped out body and some very good pieces and parts (head,trans,brakes, suspension) I will give you if you will come get it. Keep in mind that this is a limited prep car so readily available chassis, suspension, and engine parts are not allowed. The chassis I am offering is a fox body convertible that offers better balance, lower cg and much lower cd as it can be run without top or windshield. I am in NC, let me know if you are interested. As you likely already know, there are lots of 2.3 motor builders that have been building circle track racing motors for a long time.

One other question I have is, can the factory brake master cylinder be used or do I have to install a dual master cylinder setup?

You can definitely use the factory system, but you may find it is not up to the task. On my 2nd gen RX7 I use the factory master with a prop valve to adjust rear bias and it works perfectly.

Yes was definitely going the route of a prop valve, thank you
