Those are the preferred for a dd,and a much more ”practical” boosted setup if tuned properly the can be just as reliable as any n/a car..

Re: drifting??

I accidently drifted a few times, does that count?

In my 86, getting sideways is easy, very difficult to keep it straight though.


I just realized something! Maybe it IS a drift car and has been all along and I just didn't know it?

Well get yourself a meter and start tracing. That's what you have Haynes/chilton, google, and mustang evolution for.
