    History:

    I bought this car bone stock back in May of 2011 during my junior year of high school. 3 years later I have transformed it into one of the biggest neck-breaking mustangs on the face of the earth. It was built in the deepest, darkest parts of hell and has been placed on this earth for the sole purpose of defying everything mustang owners have ever worked towards. Its nonfunctional, slammed, cambered, hardparked, and as loud as a drag car. It's everything you've ever hated and more.

    Well it's hard to make this brief, but basically I like to build things out of spare parts and I found a wrecked 95 Cobra R that someone modified and I took the best of that car and put into a Regular 95 Cobra that had a S-trim and added A/C, now the cobra is getting edelbrock victor jr heads and victor jr intake.

    The car stared as a pretty clean v6 and after driving it for about a year I just could not leave it alone anymore. I got a few bolt ons for it which includes cold air, short throw shifter and an SCT tuner. Shortly after I started doing the small stuff, I put some 3,73's in the rear which woke it up but still was far from done. I pieced together a turbo kit and eventually I was driving a turbo'd v6. That was fun and surprised some stock-ish v8 cars. Again, I needed more. I found a nice sized cam and ported the heads. This definitely changed the way this car performed. This setup was really fun, but unfortunately only lasted a few weeks. A valve dropped and poked a hole in a piston which caused the rod to snap in half. I bought a junkyard split port motor and threw that in there. By this time I was getting frustrated with the split port motor just not running right and out of anger I jumped on craigslist, and ended up driving a beat up 98 gt home for a thousand bucks. Swapped in the motor and trans from that car, sold the wheels and the frame for a thousand bucks so I came out decent on that deal. This is where I got the itch for the v8. While this was a decent running v8 car, I was collecting parts for 2v that could handle some boost. The only different thing is that this built v8 gets its fuel through a carb. Along the way I shaved the engine bay, and did a few appearance things.

    It went from a stock v6 to its current state: Aluminum block bored .020 over, cast crank, forged rods and pistons, pi heads I ported myself, mmr stage 2 turbo cams, Eddelbrock Vic Jr intake, Holley 6777 carb, MSD 6011 ignition, braided steel fuel lines going into a sumped tank. I have a 3.5 inch cowl hood to cover all this stuff up. I have a D&D tubular k-member and a-arms with coil overs.

    My cars journey started out with a 1967 Fastback in poor condition. I thought about some different ways to go, but i ended up with the SN95 way. Took the complete drive train and chassies from an 1995 Mustang GT Convertible. The 95 stang was in poor condition, sun bleached, ripped up top, cracked bumpers and so on. So i decided to give it new life in the shape of an 67 Eleanor. I've put about 2500 hours of work into the car as we speak, and i think that i might have another 100 before im all done. The car was almost done this summer, but i blew my engine (spun a rod bearing). So a new engine is being built as we speak - 347 stroker, Trick-Flow top end (heads, intake, camshaft), BBK headers, x-pipe, 75mm TB, pmas MAF, 80lb siemens deka injectors and some other goodies. The transmission is an AODE, prepped with a Trans-go HD2 shift kit, and a 3200 stall torque converter. The rear end is upgraded with 4.10 gears, new bearings and carbon fiber plates.
    Brakes are original, but with slotted and drilled rotors.

    Backround on my car isn't complicated... Bought it from Palm Springs, CA and drove it back to NY where I live.. it was 100% bone stock and now it has a full bolt ons with a 70mm On3 performance turbo kit. 60 pound injectors, GT40X aluminum heads with GT40 Upper and Lower, 1.6 RRs 18" XXR 521 rims with Goodyear Eagle F1 tires 245/45/18 and 285/40/18
    10 pounds of boost puts down 540rwhp
