I tried posting this, and after 45 mins of work on my phone it decided to refresh the page and I lost it all. I'm surprised my phone is still intact. Anyway.
As (very few) of you know, I got a 1991 Ford Mustang from my uncle for basically free. It's an Automatic AOD transmission with a 5.0HO and a black paint job with Titanium grey interior.
So what's the point of this thread? Well, I'm bored, at work and pulling a 24 hour day so I needed something to keep me awake. I will be keeping this thread updated with progress and pics.
Now to the main point. What is my long term goal with this car? Well, I'm hoping to build a street cruiser/sleeper. Shooting for 375-400HP at the wheels, while keeping the body/interior looking completely stock. When people look at this car, I want them to think "What a piece of trash ahahaha" and laugh at me, right until I leave them in a cloud of smoke and peel out.
And onto the gritty details.
Stuff that will be done eventually.
Replace windshield (giant crack).
Steering wheel. (extremely worn).
Rims are bent. (curb strikes).
Brakes are severely worn.
Low braking power, I think this is related to worn brakes but not sure.
Smog pump seized.
Entire interior replaced (except seats).
New doors (one is bent from a robbery, other is just FUBAR).
Drop down dome light causes fuse to instantly pop.
Both headlights and tail lights need to be replaced.
A/C needs recharged (R-12).
Replace master cylinder.
Things done thus far:
Cleaned interior of makup/dirt. Must have gotten 10LBS of makeup off the steering wheel, climate control, door, etc etc.
Power steering pump was making a god awful noise when turning, and the fluid was as thick as mud and black as used oil, so I changed that and it's still making noise, but sounds much better.
Spark plug change.
Replaced headlight/DRL switch, was stuck in the 'on' position.
Cap and rotor change.
MAF sensor cleaning.
Throttle body cleaning (was super bad).
New air filter.
Replaced hatch. Was rusted through at the bottom of the windshield between the windshield and wing. It's red now.
Passenger side exhaust replaced. Had a hole from hitting a speed bump way too hard.
Rear brakes adjusted.
Replaced broken tail light. Was backed into a pole (not me). Caused no damage to bumper.
Immediate mods/repairs that I'll be doing in the next 2 months.
4.10 rear end.
KYB shocks in the rear and springs in the rear and front.
Front struts (unsure what I'm going to go with).
70MM throttle body.
CAI/K&N air filter.
Injectors cleaned (I seriously think one is running lean) by mrinjector.us
Electric fan conversion.
Rear control arms.
New 4-lug pony rims.
Power steering pump.
AOD 'hold' Valve body for better AOD trans/launch control.
New speedometer cable.
Stuff that I'll be doing that doesn't cost alot of money in the next few weeks.
Remove interior and give it a good scrubbing to try and save the carpet.
Install and paint new doors. They are currently white.
Install new door panels along with the doors.
Clean up the engine bay.
Change brakes (already have them).
Future mods that I will get done (probably 1-2 years out):
Vortech intercoolerless supercharger.
42LB injectors (might only go 36 we will see).
MSD ignition box.
On the fly Boost controller/timing retard advance/rev limiter box.
Rebuilt AOD transmission.
Transmission temperature/A,F ratio/Boost/Oil temp gauges.
Now for a few pics. I'll take some better ones tomorrow/Sunday.
