me and my brother picked up this stang in august '07, she ran good and the body was good but needed a paintjob. she got a 5.0 HO and 5spd. the hatch was missing a spoiler and had some bondo and we wanted a bondo free car, so we picked up a clean hatch with a good spoiler, no bondo, and already tinted glass. the only thing we had to do was give her an exhaust (duals with cherry bomb turbos, sounds mean) and brakes and a coat of paint.
here she is the night we brought her home. she handled the 45min drive perfect.



here she is at our cabin after we done the exhaust and brakes



we added 19lb(i think..) injectors and another lower intake, my brother brought it home from work today and i just never asked much about it



after the paint job and fog lights



and on the inside i put in a hurst shifter knob and a ebay steering wheel




then the motor blew a head gasket and we found another one for $100 so we put that one in her, used her for a couple nights and that one took a shit. i think it got a couple bad lifters, and it got no oil pressure and knocks. so we got someone building up the original motor in it. over christmas we will probably have it in. then in june when i get my permit im gonna get her registered/insured.

after i get the other motor in i plan on a K&N intake and some decent rims, nothing to bling, probably just some brushed aluminum 16s or 17s. and a set of new headlights/clear corners and maybe an HID kit

they arent blacked out thats just covers,, but i dont think i like hte look of the covers, too tacky. and the headlights are pretty dull so i think a set of new clear ones with clear corners would look deadly

Looking good! Lots of others here with Mustangs, lots of good sites for them also. Car should have come stock with 19 lb injectors.

Yes, you can tell if they are 19lb. by the color. 19's are orange, 24's are blue. Being speed density though, it may not run too hot on anything but 19lb injectors.

It is a sweet project though. I'll be watching to see how it comes along! Oh, and I keep my factory steering wheel on for the cruise control.
