Default Here is my street toy, just off the dyno.

Its a Ford A4 349 Stroker, Eagle 5.315" rods, Ross Custom pistons, Novi 2000, Victor 5.0, AFR 205, 80lb/hr, Aeromotive sumped tank & A-1000 fuel system, Probe SMR, Custom Cam, LS1 coils, PA K-member, Tremec TKO, Mac Long tubes and cat back, Turbo Coupe rear disks out back Lincoln brakes up front. With an AEM standalone.

Still needs some street tuning because it kept spinning tires on the dyno. And my tiny 1 5/8 primaries on the headers put up a wall at 6800rpm. Going to go Turbo some day so I don't plan on addressing the short cummings of the exhaust system. Cant wait for it to stop raining so I can drive it on the street!

Nothing like a supercharged 5.0 as a daily. Two thumbs up.

IMO that paint is perfect for that vintage Mustang. I want some vids when the sun comes out.

My street toy would break the dyno and makes 800 torques. Mainly it would break it because it weighs 7500lbs, but whatever.

I have always had a thing for those cars and this one seems really well thought out. Kudos.

Funny, but I've been in that garage when it was so packed full of **** you couldn't walk through it to get into the house. And by ****, I mean everything that's now under the hood.

I remembered the mustang days. Nothing like a car standing on the bumper, and the track 'disappearing'. It takes a while to get use to. Crowd digs it though.

Lol, almost makes me miss my 2 Fox Mustangs. I had a primer black 1985 GT that years later would have been called "murdered out." Wasn't by design though, it was because cheap. 5.0 and a big *** Holley carburetor was really fun.

I've always had a soft spot for fox bodies. Reminds me of the good ol days in Richmond.
