In any case, I bought this car when I was 15. It was white and blue back then, with a 2.8L V6 and a 4 speed on the floor. it only had 105hp but i loved it.
Over the years there were plenty of mods. First the exhaust, then a V8, suspension, transmissions, and countless sets of wheels and tires. I even did the bodywork and repainted the car myself:
Anyway, the V8 was doing well and all, but I was always looking for more. After dumping coolant all over the parking lot at an all mustang car show, I decided it was time to freshen her up. I figured while tinkering I'd also switch over to EFI (electronic fuel injection) for better power, driveability, reliability and general awesomeness. I mean thats kind of how I roll. I started buying EFI parts and tinkering away
That was two years ago. College, moves and life got in my way. I didn't have time to drive home to my parents to work on my old car anymore. I hated that.
Last winterI decided to get some help. Since I couldn't work on it while living 35 miles from home and going to school full time, I sent it to a very trusted shop. These guys had worked on the car in the past and even fixed it for free when the car broke down on the way to a car show that the owner was attending. The car has been at that shop for a few months now, and it's nearing completion!
In addition to a sweet as all sin fuel injected V8, they replaced the old 1986 motor (which had an inferior head design, and had pistons that didn't allow for much modification) with a 1992 5.0 with a scant 6,000 miles! In addition to this sweet as all sin powerplant, I've now got bigger brakes, front and rear, a 5 lug conversion, new wheels, tires, a working power steering system and more. A stock 5.0 Mustang (from where the EFI is sourced from) made about 225hp and 300lb-ft of torque. Coupled with the suspension rebuild I did last summer, and the fact that this thing should be under 3,000lbs mean this baby is going to fly. And the best part? This motherfucker of a car is going to pass smog, so fuck off hippies! Anywho, the car shouldn't be much longer, so enjoy these pics!
