Opinions?

Adult driven 1988 Mustang GT: Just dialed (tuned) in by Master Ford Tech, 5.0 approx 15K on motor, Mass Air Conversion, E-303 Cam, GT-40P Heads, 1.72 Cobra Roller Rockers, Edlebrock Performer Upper Intake, 75mm Throttle Body, 24lb Injectors, MSD Distributor, Under Dive Pulleys, 3:73 Rear, 255 LPH in tank electric fuel pump, Kirban Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator, BBK 2" shorty headers, H pipe with 2" stainless steel exhaust, Borta Mufflers, High Torque mini starter, High Intensity Xenon head lamps with LED Halo, T-5 Tremec Transmission, Short Throw Shifter, Adjustable clutch, Converted to 5 Lug wheels 17x9, Converted to adjustable Ford Racing front and rear disc brakes, all new upper and lower rear control arms with 2.5 lowering springs, Poly bushings through out, new shocks, new coil over struts, Adjustable Camber, Bama Performance 4 bank chip, 4 point harness' with racing seats, Harness Bar. I have all of the OEM parts, including the seats. Plus extra parts that haven't been installed. Very reliable car, I am the 3rd owner.



This is an 88 gt I've been watching. Of course i will check the car out for leaks, rust, funny noises or grinds but as far as the setup. I know the exhaust may b a bit smaller than OEM but anything else I should look out for?

Sounds like an impressive piece. I'd want a build list/receipts of the mods.


If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough.

Lol heard that. Guy told me it needs odometer. Back tires need balancing. Door handles need replacing soon.

That's not too bad for a 27 year old car.

That's all common stuff and easy to fix.

Also I noticed two screws poking out behind my back tires ill post a pic when I get off work. Vacuum leak somewhere definitely. And sometimes when I'm in low gears and I brake I'll hear a clunk under my driver side. I'll have to lift it and look at it other than that the car has been driving great no real issues yet. Will have to get used to the EFI setup, my first fox like this my last two were carbed

Clunk might be the lower control arms, driveshaft/u joint, bushings
