    Well I sold my 97 last weekend..... wasnt really looking to sell it but was given an offer I couldnt refuse. No less than 2 hours after selling it I went into a panic attack since it was the first time in the past 10 years that I have not owned a mustang. I imediately went and got a Auto/RV Magazine and searched frantically for a new Stang. While its not an SN, I went back to my roots and got myself a Foxbody. Its a 1990 GT 25th Anniversary. Mods include the following:

    Exterior:
    4" Design Concepts Cowl Hood
    LX Tail Lights

    Engine:
    Trick Flow Street Intake
    3/8" Phenolic Intake Spacer
    75mm BBK Throttle Body
    75mm BBK EGR Spacer
    76mm C&L Mass Air Meter
    BBK Cold Air Kit
    Jacobs Ignition Box
    Jacobs Ignition Coil
    Accel Distribuitor Cap and Rotor Button
    Accel 8mm Spark Plug Wires
    BBK 1 5/8" Shorty Headers
    Mystery Brand Off Road H Pipe
    40 Series Flowmaster Catback
    Smog Pump Eliminated
    A/C Eliminated
    Myster Brand Crank Underdrive Pulley

    Transmission:
    Hurst Short Throw Shifter
    Ram Heavy Duty Clutch

    Rear Differential:
    FRPP 3.73:1 Ring and Pinion

    Since last week I have already purchased quite a few items for the car. Now I just have to find the time to put them on:

    Saleen Wing
    Maxspeed Lowering Springs
    Trick Flow Stage 1 Cam (.499/.510 lift, 221°/225° duration @50, 112° lobe seperation)
    FRPP Hydraulic Roller Lifters
    FRPP Pushrods
    FRPP Timing Set
    Aeromotive Fuel Rails (Already had from a previous Build)
    Aeromotive Remote Mount Fuel Pressure Reguolator (Already had from a previous Build)

    I still have quite a few things yet to get before I am temporarily satisfied with the car, but I can see a 5 lug conversion with Bullitt or Cobra Brakes and a set of Satin 03 Cobra Rims in my future. :dancing6:

    Sorry for the crappy pics, but I cant seem to find my Camera so I just used my phone.

    yea I like the new stang alot. It has some issues that need to be addressed, but its 17 years old... so thats to be expected. I gave my shot with the 97 and only managed a [email protected] with the car still being NPI. While I learned alot about the modular engine, I feel much better about going back to what I know. Supposively the new stang runs 13.7 on street tires, but I have yet to take it to the track to verify that. If that is the case, then with the new parts, drag radials and some good tuning I am expecting a low 13 out of it.
