This is what I started with. I purchased it from the first owner, Barry, who wanted to move from Mustang to motorcycle. I had worked with him for 3 years prior and occasionaly took a ride or two (secretly drooling the whole way). When I purchased it here were the mods currently installed:

Engine Mods:
  • GT-40 Upper and lower intake w/ 1′ phenolic spacer
  • BBK unequal length shorty headers
  • H-pipe (no cats)
  • 3 Core aluminum radiator
  • Edelbrock high flow water pump (no smog pump
  • Ford Motorsport 3:55 Rear gears
  • Fuel pressure regulator and 155 lph High flow fuel pump
  • K&N Air Filter
  • Underdrive pulleysExterior/Interior Mods:
  • Saleen stacked wing
  • Eibach performance springs
  • Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings (all)
  • 6-point roll cage
  • 5-point harnesses
  • Hurst shifter
  • Sub-frame connectors
  • Autometer Pro-Comp guages
  • Low profile BF Goodrich tiresAfter owning the car for a few years I later added:
  • BBK 65mm throttle body and EGR spacer
  • C&L 76mm Mass Air and intake tube
  • PA Performance 3G alternator
  • To elaborate further on my initial comments on purchasing the Mustang – I want to place all blame on Rick Abt and Barry Payton for getting me into this. Like I said before, Barry used to own the car and drive it to work everyday, consequently making me lust for one. On Fridays Rick used to drive us all to Hooters for lunch in his ’87 GT (Didnt know it was possible to get from Lee Road to the Downtown Orlando Parking garage during lunch hour traffic on I-4 in under 5 minutes; thanks for the messy drawers!) One summer I also helped Rick pull the engine and transmission out of his GT to which we later transplanted it back into his newly re-painted pearl white beauty. So when I was able to finally purchase one for myself needless to say the seed had been planted. Without those two guys I would have never made it to where I am today with my car; and I would definetly have more money, more time, and less scars!
