My wife just recently bought a 95 Ford Mustang GT 5.0L

Here are few mods:

Cervinis "Stalker" ram air hood
Chrome Cobra R wheels,
Nitto tires,
Trick Flow R-series upper and lower intake,
Ford GT40 iron heads
Ford Racing B-303 Cam
BBK ceramic coated shorty headers.
Off road x-pipe
Flowmaster mufflers
Ford Racing 3.73 Gear

Other than the weird paint job, its pretty nice. I have to replace the head gasket. Once done will post more pics and vids.

The one and only thing I don't like about those body style is the headlights are taller than the corner lens. Just something about it has always bothered me. I do how ever like the SVT cobras in that body style. Good find none the less.

My wife loves the paint some odd reason. I think its the green in the paint. Her favorite color. The paint detail is immaculate

No videos. Its INOP right now.

Would love to do that. But its the wifes car so Im not touching it. (Like that will happen[shhh]). BTW, 5 speed. We both dont believe in Auto, No offense to anyone!!! She learned to drive standard in my focus.

I HATE the headlights on this gen mustang. I had a 95 about 5 years ago and I had the 351W in it but those headlights just dont go well. The Cobra wheels are my Fav!



As for plans for the car so far:
Fix motor.
Tune up (check plugs, wires for continuity, air filter, fuel filter, etc... to see what else it needs)
Debadge everything.
Suspension work
Depending on how she runs few performance parts.


Will add more pictures by the end of the day.

Guy my wife bought the car from has a
02 Ford Lighting for sale making 674hp/777tq. http://www.lightningrodder.com/forum/showthread.php?t=72256

Last guy who owned it before the guy im buying it from (current seller owned it for 2 weeks and dont want to turn wrenches) ran 125 shot on her and blew the head gasket. He was running mid-hi 12s in the 1/4. I got to talking to the current owner and stated previous owner was running factory tune on it and this is why it blew. I've looked at it today and I will have to say this is a very EASY fixer upper. He has all receipts supporting all the mods.

My buddy has 96 cobra vorteched t-trim 91 oct tune stage 3 heads and 4:11 gears. This car scared the shit out of me when I drove it. His daily setup was around 485whp at 10psi. I wanted to buy it off him when he got a bottom end knock but I think ill kill my self in it so it sits in his garage just waiting to be brought back to life. The fr 500 wheels look better for ur paint scheme tho. 17x9 front and 1 inch lip 17x10 rear with a 2 inch lip my buddy has them and they sit flush and clear his brembos up front

Well, more update:

- Got vehicle in my garage, Took us about 2.5 hours to get it. Thats with 40 Min drive.
- Rear end has some type of "street link" setup. Will take pics.
- Just ordered my Upper/Lower intake gasket. NOBODY carry on hand.
- Start working on it tomorrow morning when the wife leaves!
- Purchased all gaskets/seals (intake/exhaust gasket for head, intake seal, fuel gasket/o ring, etc.)

-Will need to purchase new mufflers tho. Will be running Straight X-pipe till my wife gets cash to buy two new mufflers. Thinking maybe Bassani mufflers... or the typical Flowmaster. What would you recommend?

-Stay tuned. Will take pics of process.

Nice mustang. Is the inside as loud as the outside?
If your talking audio, HELL no. Has an Ancient CD player and Im sure the speakers are factor. My wife wants to go with a decent system setup. We're both going to go for components all around (already has 4 ch amp), Alpine CDE-121, and one small 12" woofer.

My buddy running 3 inch flowmaster super 44's. Sound great!
I've listen to a lot of youtube video's, IMO i want her to go with a Deep throaty tone and I know bassani has some SICK setups for these GTs. I've had flowmasters 30 series on my last 95 that had a 351w in it and sound good. Right now it has BBK x pipe and flowmaster mufflers. DONT know what model tho.

Gettiing coffee made then start working on it. A lot of pics soon
