    UPDATE: Better pics added.

    Picked her up yesterday. Last year for the 5.0L HO pushrod motor. 5-speed. Only 67,XXX miles on her. Super clean everywhere. Pretty much stock, except for:

    K&N Filter
    Original 2.73 gears are replaced with 3.55's
    Off Road H-Pipe (non-cat) and Flowmaster mufflers (Sounds awesome)
    After market CD player
    "Mustang" emblem in the front and "MUSTANG GT" in the rear bumper are a nice goldish tan color to match the interior.

    Nice - we had a '99 Explorer that had the pushrod 5.0 in it (I think the very same engine, but maybe tweeked for more torque and less HP), and I LOVED that vehicle and they way it took off from the line. Please do post some pics!;f

    Nice!

    The 5.0's are torquier (however you spell it) motors than the 4.6s (displacement does that). Definately a good start.

    As for the rims, I am still a sucker for anything Bullit style. They just look TOO good on stangs. Cobra R style rims look dang good too.

    hotrodtba..........NICE ride bro!! Looks clean. I love the bodies of the 94-98. You have alot to work with being a great engine of that body design.

    **** the bottle, H/C/I and a turbo kit. ;f

    Glad you like the new addition - looks good. I have a pic somewhere of a green SN95 with Saleen wheels, looks amazing. If I find it I'll post it up.

    only if he was going to get some Fikse FM/5s. turbos are ok, but above 500rwhp they are difficult to tune with the stock mustang pcms of that era. i had a TTI street kit on my 93 for 5 years. before that i had an s-trim on my 91 lx for 2 years.

    I saw the thread you posted. Yours does look a lot like mine. Any problem areas I should look out for? I am pretty new to Fords, and to Mustangs, so I don't know what little quirks or problem areas they have.

    What color is your interior?

    Those were the two options I was looking at too. I think I like the Bullit style the best. Time to go to ebay and find a nice set.

    if it starts having a random miss fire under load if its not a burned plug wire its probably the ignition module. not a lot goes wrong with those cars. they are pretty tough.

    on another note, i layed teh beat down to some squirrel in a 96-98 cobra today. he revved at me and then took off. wouldnt let me get up next to him, kept weaving in and out of cars. when i finally got up next to him by a stop light i made sure to make that ass whoopin hurt. i had 2 car lengths on him by the end of second gear. ;f

    My interior is dark grey cloth. Mine is the GTS version, which gets the econo LX interior and exterior.

    Those LT1 F-body cars are just too fast. Thats why I have no intentions of racing one any time soon. ;Q

    i wouldnt be to afraid if i were you. most of them are beat up old automatic cars that didnt make **** for power to begin with and would be lucky to get into the low 14s. i just got a good one and i maintain the snot out of it. watch out for the LS1s tho, some of them are pretty quick

    He should be afraid. I owned a 96 LT1 Civilian Caprice. It had 3.73's, intake mod and custom OBDI conversion computer. Stock automatic Mustangs were seldom a problem. It ran mid 14's. Stock with 2.93 gears it ran low 15's and even then would beat up some GT's.

    BTW, I like Mustangs. They have potential. If I can find a good one (I missed one a few weeks ago) I'll grab it in a heartbeat.

    You might look here for info.

    Good find, hotrodtba!!!!

    :cool:
