Easy foxbody fixes?

What are some easy cheap foxbody mods or fixes for my 90 mustang? Really want to do something to do to it. Just don't know what to do.

Just let us know what you have in mind and how you want to use your fox. Race, cruise, or show or even play. I'm on my 5th fox build now and am almost half way there

Auto. Mostly like a street racer I have cold air intake dual exhaust and headers. But I think they are stock. I want 3.73 gears.

If keeping it auto and your street/ strip racing, for take off go with 4.10's, go 3.73 if you want to retain some top end...n don't forget after fear swap to swap the Speedo drive gear on sensor to fix the mph readout

Trickflow top end kit Cam good suspension wheels and tires put the battery in the back shed as much weight as possible and a driver mod and you will have a pretty good street car

You can't correct with the auto for that high of a ratio in cars prior to 94 unless you pull the tailshaft and swap the drive gear to a 6 or 7 tooth. Then you can go to a correct driven gear. The 23 tooth gear you'll hear about is not a correct mesh and will get eaten up in the trans. Not to mention its not correct for 3.73s or 4.10s anyway...

For a fox automatic...

-4.10s
-FULL exhaust to include headers
-CAI with TB/MAF upgrades
-Pullies
-Steeda full length subframes
-Upgrade the trans cooler to a B&M supercooler

This should give you a fun car and honestly ppl bash the autos too much. Yeah the AOD is a "slushbox" in stock form but if you build an auto properly you'll rape a 5 spd with equal mods in the 1/4 mile.

Sorry about the Speedo gear info being inaccurate for the auto, everything I have done has been manual, but the 4.10 are the way to go, and LMR has a PA trans kit for around 2500 that holds up to 450 ft lbs of torque,but I went for the Mann's world class t-5

Lol around here you could trade that Shelby for about 30-40 running or not running foxes. Than you'd be in heaven!

Yes I know nothing... Pullies are fine in a fox once you do the 3G alt which should be one of the first things you do anyway.
