Just picked up a 5.0

Just sold my 1998 V6 5 speed today, and in the same 2 or so hours, Picked up this 1995 5.0 5 Speed, Glad I did.

This car runs amazing, super clean and smooth. Got a new air filter, some fresh gas, some new wipers and some other small things. Oil change and tire balance for tomorrow, anyone got any idea's on random replacement parts that I should be aware of? I don't know much about the 5.0 platform.

There are 94/95 specific things but its not too bad. I've had that year car down to nothing and back up again pretty much and its easy to work on. If I didn't have to worry so much about getting a pre-96 car smogged I might be back in one.

What I would do to that car:

-A9L swap. Pants ****tingly noticible increase in performance and this is from personal experience, not some dude who is recycling information he read somewhere on the interwebs. You need to do some-repinning, get a BAP sensor, fan controller and an ignition box, its not just a direct plug and play unless you can find a 1st generation PIH kit.

-Longtubes/mid pipe/catback

-BBK aluminum pullies

-CAI

-3.73 gears and a speedcal

That will make you a very fun bolt on driver until a time where you can put a blower on it, do a HCI or a built up stroker.

Looks very clean BTW, post up some more pics of the interior and the rest of the car. Ppl talk smack about the teal cars but they can look GREAT. A user by the name of Det-Riot on multiple forums I belong to has a Teal 94/95 with a ton of mods done to it and it is one of the sexiest cars I've ever seen. Just google "Det-Riot's Sexual Teal Whale Cannon". I'm not kidding lol.

Agreed on all suggestions except the A9L, for the hassle and troubleshooting I personally would just get a tune. Again, just my .02. The stock 94/95 computer is a very advanced computer. It's a bit rigid in stock form but very malleable with the right setup.

Good luck with it, great looking car. So so clean!

Nobody with this opinion has ever done the A9L conversion in their 94/95 car and is just recycling information. If they had they would know just how drastic a change it really is.

Again, that's why I said it was just my opinion. I'm currently working on a 95 project, not just posting about what I used to have or used to do or what I've read.

My best buddy has a 94 with the A9L swap. The gains are good. I never said they weren't. It was a PIA. I've been in and under that car more times than I can count and I don't think it's worth the hassle. So no, I'm not just recycling information.

Trying to offer up some help with my experience, that's why they are called opinions.

Regardless, the PIH vs tune debate is as old as dirt and I still maintain that anyone who has every actually done one will recommend it. And that's my opinion. Obviously when you throw a new cam or heads at it you'll need to tune it as well. If you can find a PIH harness its plug and play and takes about 20 minutes to do the swap.

At any rate, the OPs car does look really good. Again, these cars take great to mods and are easier to work on than the modulars. Best of both worlds IMO. Simplicity of the 5.0 with the updated platform and interior. Still a Fisher Price interior compared to the stuff out now but light years better than the fox lol. It has a certain charm to it.
