1986 Ford Mustang LX Coupe

Originally a 2.3L LX that I’ve done a 5.0L conversion to. -Koni sport Struts and shocks -MM front and rear control arms -MM C/C plates -8.8 rear axle w/Detroit TruTrac diff and 3.55 gears -Infloor Subframe connectors -DIY Torque Arm and panhard bar -Modified stock k-member (raised control arm pickups) - MM bumpsteer kit due to the above mod -5 lug Cobra Brake kit using SN95 spindles -Magnaflow 2.5” catback - WC T5 transmission It had a 351W with Weiand Stealth 4bbl but I kind of destroyed it through my stupidity. Currently running a low compression (8.4 to 1) 302 w/factory 4bbl intake, 600cfm Holley w/vacuum secondaries and factory ‘84 iron heads aka a gutless turd (it’s not that bad but there’s never enough power, right?) The plan is to repair the rust damage, build a proper replacement 351W engine for it and convert it to EFI via Megasquirt. Behold, a wimpy C/P Car!
