Vortec4v I bought this car with the intentions of having fun with it like most plan to do when they buy a mustang. I was coming from a 700 hp terminator to this stock non pi 200 hp mustang so it was a hard transition for me lol! So originally i was planning to drag race this sn95 then i got into auto-x to try something different and it turned out i had way more fun than i did drag racing so i decided this car would be a grip car instead of straight line. Started modding it with budget used parts at the time. Got my 4v swap for a good deal as well and iwas tearing it up at the local auto-x events.Then I then discovered drifting. The way the cars slide, smoking tires, high rpms, tandeming with eachother so close, the smell of exhaust and fuel and did i mention tire smoke? lol! It was drifting and that was the goal, i dropped everything for drifting at that point and that has been the direction of this car. The suspension has been upgraded to more serious heavy duty high performance stuff for this type of driving and i have some stuff that is different from the normal mustangs out there from thecustom front suspension for more steering angle to the rear mounted radiator in the trunk to the custom tubular front and rear end bash bar setups to the hydraulic handbrake. This car has been my biggest project and even though its not the 700 hp terminator i once had i have to admit even pushing at 500 hp this car is way more fun and has been my favorite mustang of the 12 that i have owned.

I've had the car for about 5 years and has become a great hobby for my future wife and myself. We built the motor together in the garage we are getting married in, and surprisingly it is still running!!
