    1995 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 with a 5 Speed

    So far-

    CAI
    Cheap Glass Pack mufflers
    Adjustable Clutch Cable
    MSD Cap/Rotor Etc.

    And routine maintenance etc.


    I Love the car, But the passenger Cat is leaking, the front one. Not a big issue I know, But when money is tight and you do not have a place to work on the car, or the proper tools, it becomes a problem. lol

    But I am just taking it day by day.

    Anyone got any cheap tips/tricks to get some power out of this old girl?
    I Set my timing to 12* and I run 89 gas with no pinging, anything higher and I am worried about it so I just keep it there.

    Here are some pic's of her how she sits today. The gas cap and hash marks are plasti dip so I can remove them when I get bored with them. Lol

    Clean Teal Gt.
    As far as pwr. your basically stuck till you can afford to put some gears in it. (no pwr increase but it will accelerate a lot faster).
    Then dependine on $$$, Budget wise Exploder GT40 heads and intake and a steeda 19 or Trick flow stage 1 cam. If you win the lottery then full alumnium TF top end.

    Yeah, that's on a list of to-do's for today. lol

    Going to do that, and remove spare tire/tool's etc.

    Lighter = Free = Cheap Speed :D

    That's a clean car you got! Go with a set of gears my man! But just like CC said, no more hp, but will definitely wake the car up.

    Is jumping from 3.27's to 3.55's worth it? I do a bunch of Highway driving. I don't think the gain of it would be worth it, and 4.10 would kill my gas. lol
    Buddy has a set of 4.30's sitting in his old 94, but it's not running anymore.

    Got my timing at 12, running 89 Gas with no pinging.

    And is a swap from 3.27's to 3.73's worth it? I mean, I am calculating Mileage and gas into that, not just speed benefit.

    And yeah I realize, any power I add = less gas MPG, but I'd rather be able to cruise lower RPM's for freeway driving.

    I haven't ever noticed a difference in mpg. Has always gotten 18mpg @ 80mph. Maybe if I drove it like an old lady, but thats what the fusion is for.....lol
