Testimonials

My FFR is the first car I have ever “worked” on. I am a NEWBI to the whole build process. But, I wanted to give a THUMBS UP to Mike Forte for helping me through this process. He has helped me get the right part and future parts in advance that I did not know I needed (till the time came I needed them). I would have search for the answer and ended up spending money (through lack of knowledge on parts) on parts I did not need. He always has an answer and solution to all my questions. In a time like now where customer service is a joke, he has always been polite and personable. Not trying to boost his ego, just trying to “Give An Atta Boy.”
“I to would like to give Mike thanks for his help and patience with my questions. Just to illustrate your point. I got a Tremec TKO-600 (with mid shift), bellhousing, clutch fork, clutch fork extension, throw out bearing, correct speedo gear for the tremec to match my tire size and rear ratio, speedo drive cable, clutch cable etc. I know the function of all these parts and what he sent to me went together and works nicely.”
“I bought a crate motor and transmission from Mike. A year later I finally hit the starter and it started. Along the way, Mike answered many questions. I would recommend Mike to everyone.”

“Stopped by the other day to pick up a 99 mustang cobra clutch and I must say Mike’s knows his shit very satisfied can’t wait to put the new set up on my cobra”
“Got my engine, tranny and an assortment of parts from Mike. He really knows and loves cars, thats the difference, this is his life so the advice comes naturally from him because he lives and breathes this stuff. (No I wasn’t paid to say this.)”
“Mike was great to work with when I was starting my build. Very helpful and saved me some frustration and even a little money!”

About the founder

Hi, I'm Mike Forte. Thank you for your interest in Forte's Parts Connection.
I've devoted my whole business career to providing high performance parts, and making custom parts so that we can assemble cars with the best quality at competitive prices. Back in 1993, I developed the original conversion of the Ford Tremec into a GM 5-speed. These have always bolted to OEM GM aluminum bellhousings without an adapter plate. With these Tremecs made to fit factory bellhousings of the Mustang Tremec product line, it was expanded to fit hundreds of thousands of classic muscle cars and hot rods. With specialty bellhousings, we have expanded to specific foreign cars, AMC, Chrysler, flathead Ford, nailhead Buick, and many others. The Early Ford and FE Tremec were also originals from myself. My latest developments are external slave clutch release conversions and cable release conversions.

I've been playing with high performance cars, boats, and motorcycles since 1970. Currently I have a retired group of race cars, a 1968 Z-28 and a 1992 Camaro tube chassis GT-1 car.

In 1994 I had the pleasure of meeting Mark Smith and then Dave Smith before FFR made their first kit. Mark visited me countless times with an ambition of building a "Cobra" kit car. Our conversations and many of my ideas spawned many inherent designs built into the FFR chassis. The FFR includes the donor idea, sheet metal firewall, and parts of the front end. Many were modeled from my GT-1 race car, which I had built between 1991-1993. In 1996, Forte's original firewall adjustable quadrant kit was designed to use a Mustang OEM clutch cable. The OEM cable was used to insure trouble free operation without the plagued cable failure of the aftermarket kit.

I hope you'll find my dedication and knowledge along with competitive prices a pleasant experience. Anytime you need to reach me, feel free to contact me at the shop at
