    what up ya'all? It was a painful 6 years without a Mustang! I recently picked up a 95 Cobra/GT clone, basically a hodpodge of parts...
    My last Mustang was a '89 GT 5sp w/mild P combo, it ran a best of 13.4 @ 103mph at my local strip. My '95 will be a similar beast, with a Explorer 5.0 swap coming soon. I'm glad to be here and hope I can get more info/help/feedback than some of the other sites I've been on...cough corral cough.

    can't post pics as attachment, so no, Not Yet...

    It is a '95 ex V6, 5.0 swap. stock AODE, & 7.5 rear...:embarrassed: Bullitt green, GT rear bumper & 16" 5 spoke GT wheels, Leather w/Mach 460.

    Plans so far are; Explorer 5.0 swap, gears 4.10+ & 8.8 swap, poss 5-speed swap or built Auto w/trans brake. I got it cheap! Will be a strip/street car yes strip/street, I'm literally 2 turns & under 10 miles from my local strip:headbang:

    When I got it I immediately tore down the motor, (got a little too excited after not having a mustang for 6 years)...lol.
    I was surprised & kinda pissed to find a non-roller bottom end, had all stock EFI stuff & ECU(W4H0) it idled great- even had a bit of a lope to it, Ran like crap though!

    EDIT: It actually is a roller block (drilled) just no spider,dogbones, roller lifters or cam. I'm going to decode the casting #'s once I get the Exp. 5.0 & this block is out... I'm guessing it is a 90's truck block. has E7 boat anchors.
