More get up and Go

Well I picked up an 8.8 for the mustang. Got it from a buddy of mine
for FREE. This free stuff is working out GREAT!

The notch has 2.73's in it right now, which is great for mileage. I just got 23.95 going from My house up to Ft Worth and back. Which is pretty good. But unfortunatley, it's not great for the power department.

I've gotta go through it. Going to change wheel bearings, control arm bushings. I've got new brakes to put on it. Fill her up with some royal purple, and bolt her up.

LOL no I have 2.73's in the car right now. This new diff that I got has 3.55's. That's why I'm swapping out the whole diff.
