hey all, I go by "GrumpyBadger" in most online communities. My real name is Pat. I actually don't own a Mustang and actually daily drove an 11 second 1969 El Camino for about 10 years. I'm not trolling though, I promise. I'd never admit it back then, but yeah, my car was "meh, great." She had a Dart block, 427 cubes, AFR heads, edelbrock intake and a big ol Holley and high lift Comp Cam. She made plenty of power, and once we got her to grip, she wasn't allowed to come back because she had no roll-cage. Oops. The fact is. To this day, I think my buddy's K-code 289 1966 Mustang notch was a cooler car... Yep. No she wasn't nearly as fast. But he started upgrading her with "period go-fasts" as he called them. Basically he had a lot of GT350 type parts in her suspension and drivetrain. My Uncle worked at Ford predelivery. His side of the family has worked for Ford in one way, or another, since the 1930s I think (depending on who you ask). So, deep down in side, I've bled Blue my whole life. First word I could spell was F-O-R-D from the back tailgate of his pickup. Basically, I'm not a bot. I'm here, and here for a reason. I've been trolling alot of forums having to do with the car I'm wanting to build. And I got to say, I've ended up here more often than not when it comes to technical aspects of the engines. I've also been perusing this forum looking for Sn95s that are in tough shape, and the owners wouldn't mind them going to a good home to be "resurrected" into a Cobra lol:angel: I don't need a "bucket list of magazine recommended parts" and "super high flow heads" and all that jazz. I did that with my Elky. I'm looking to build a happy 302. And by happy, 300 or so rwhp is PLENTY. I know how much that is in reality, and in a 2400 lb car, it's more than enough. Unfortunately, I'm not planning on building a Mustang, but I hope you guys will accept me here. I love Mustangs. I really do. On my bucket list is getting a 65 GT350 one day, or if I find a fastback that needs help, and isn't numbers matching, a clone isn't out of the question. But I'm building a Cobra... or a Daytona. that's got to count for something right?! however, I have a wee half-pint. She's 3.5 right now. A Cobra/Daytona only has enough room for two. If the right Mustang chooses me, preferably a Sn95 (why I'm here) and while I'm dreaming an SVT 5.8l Cobra lol or a 65-66 Fastback, yeah... I'd give her a good home. Heck that's why I registered here. Great tech on the (I guess now we'd say) "pushrod" 5.0, Sn95s to drool and admire. I'm really happy to be here.
