87-93 Mustang - Easy to find parts for, best stock suspension, and a strong but lightweight uni-body design.

Junkyard. (not kidding) Late 90s Explorer heads are the same GT40 heads from the 93 Cobra, just go rip them off a 5.0L explorer at the junkyard. Check around the for sale sections of mustangforums, corral, foxbodyforums, moddedmustangs, etc... As far as companies, I deal with JPC Racing and Speed Unlimited quite a bit for engine and transmission work. As far as my nitrous goes, I'm using Steve Johnson's induction solutions (incase you decide to juice it, I recommend their fogger kit).

I've seen a gutted fox with completely stock motor go 12s. As for the SN95, slower than my Focus on street tires. The 94+ bodies are heavy pigs. Mid-13s at best probably with a really good driver.

^^^Hands down the most informative site on drag racing though I will warn you, they like to rip apart newbs. There's a certain... eh... welcoming or indoctrination over there.

Good luck.
Russia... is... awesome!
