Sold the truck to help pay $1.5M in medical bills! Now I have a F150 6cyl that is slower and gets worse mileage

Being that I own an 88 Mustang GT and have done a few mods like 351 windsor bored and stroked to 398 cubic inches, a T56 6 speed, 8.8 rear end with 9'' housing ends. 5 lug brakes with disc brakes all around. I laid down 449 horses to the wheel and 424 ft lbs of torque. I can tell you some local places for me but not for you but there is some national sites that are great also. I also just picked up a 1991 LX notch a few weeks ago.

My sign on name is either skip or skip nay on each site.

www.hardcore50.com
great for motor stuff/chassis/drag racing and other stuff name skip nay I think

BMC - Bad Mustangs Club
good with just about anything (also a moderator there) name skip

SuperStallions Of The Net
good all around name skip nay

Pennsylvania's Premiere Mustang Site
good around (also a moderator) name skip

The Turbo Forums.com
Turbos' for just about everything!!!


Got any more questions just ask.

Those cars are so popular all you do is search 5.0 and hundreds will come up. I also own a 86 with a few mods ther is some good books to read as well. There is alot of aftermarket available I think it is the biggest aftermarket market for any car. The mustang is very versitile. the first mod would be a cage or at least frame conetors for any type of racing you plan to do they flex enough to crack the wind shield.
