New 1990 gt

Hey guys. I just bought me my first real mustang. I say first "real" one cause I've owned 2 others a 85 with a 4 banger that never ran and a 93 contverable 4 banger that I bought for my baby sis when she got her drivers license. This one is the first one that's all mine a 1990 GT hatchback 5 speed. All stock except guy I bought it from put a chip in it unknown. And a pulley kit with flowmaster exhaust. Plans so far. Holly systemax 2 upper and lower. AFR 185 heads 80 MAF. 65mm TB 30lb injectors E303 cam. 150 shot NOS. And subframe connectors. Thinking 5 lug conversation. How do the 4 lug hold up? 3:73 gears. Don't know if stock rear has locker or not. Any other ideas for suspension. Lol I did hear with the mods I'm making my stock T5 WILL NOT hold up. Any comments or suggestions is appreciated. Thanx guys

Lol the t5 will hold long enough to buy a new one! Jkjk it'll hold a while if you treat it right but would be good to upgrade that too.. TKO 500 or even a 600.

Get this I just moved here a couple months ago and was driving down the road and I looked over and seen the car on side a barn under a cover so I stopped and asked the guy about it he said been sitting for 3 years since he bought his saleen. He runs it every couple of weeks just to make sure it runs. I bought it for a couple hundred bucks. Couldn't beat it. And I've been looking for a mustang to replace my 77 comet. This is perfect. Interior is in great shape except for front seats

Think link bar on the sway bar snapped on the 1mile drive home..and tires were dry rotted...other then that I spent the next three months replacing all the small stuff and putting it back together..oil,coolant,gass,batt, alt,fuel filter, air filter ect..I had to get a new hood because the old one had a dent from a tree branch..it had no door locks or handles,the windows were down (switches were bad) no rear bumper cover,no seat belts,one headlight...there was alot more just cant think of them now!..

I wish i had a pic when i first got it!...this pic was probably to weeks after i got it!..

No, but I was wondering how long before someone came up with this just last week! Where did you see them? And do you know the brand name?
