Hi, my names Andy and I'm a gasaholic

Greetings, gang. I am in central FL and drive daily in my '94 GT. At the moment, I may need more moral support than tech support. Between my wife's loathing for my car and the rough commutes, I am trying to keep love alive. When the time comes, I'll be all ears for nuts and bolts advice!

But enough about me. I have a Teal 94 GT with an AODE that I've been gradually modding over the last 6 years or so. For breathing, I've got a '93 Cobra intake, AFR 165 heads, 1.7 Crane rr's, Mac shorty headers, o/r H-pipe and Flowmasters. The AODE has a shift kit and just recently got a Hughes Performance 2500 tq converter. Behind that an aluminum drive shaft and 3.73 gears. I got rid of the stock "off-roadin" ride height with Eibach springs and Bilsteins.

My ball joints are completely shot, so I'm next going to get those Ford Racing lower control arms. I can't wait and really hope it puts a spring back in her step! Anybody have experience with those?

Otherwise, my leather is cracking, clearcoat is starting to peel away and my stereo doesn't always come out every speaker. However, I DID just recently score a dashboard dome clock that actually works!

welcome :thumbs2:

Hi, my name's Brian, and you'll be glad to know, you're not alone...we all love our stangs.
Looks like you have a nicely modded GT...cracked leather and a blown out speaker isn't bad for a car approaching 16 years of age

Re: Hi, my names Andy and I'm a gasaholic

Thanks for the greets

NeedSomeMods: Exterior mods...a Cervini's Cobra R hood and Halibrand Cobra III rims. I'm almost due for a second replacement of fogged-up headlights. I just posted a "Dorothy" album. I'm still kinda feeling my way around the controls of the forum. Nice that we can upload pics directly!

Brian (sonicpony03), you're right--as I typed all of the mods in one place I started to realize just how much has been done! As was all, "daaaamn...". I think part of my head is still in the "some day my car will rock" zone.

Keto77, never been to Destin but always heard great reviews. I'm guessing you're not a "beach person" if you left there for Illinois.

Re: Hi, my names Andy and I'm a gasaholic

Thx, lowflyn. I would be incurable if I had a cobalt blue 03 Cobra like yours! You even have my favorite rims on it. Dream car right there.

Re: Hi, my names Andy and I'm a gasaholic

The handling did improve with the drop fer sure--and people stopped laughing at the appearance too. I think the (decrepit) condition of my ball joints and bushings is keeping me from enjoying it fully. I'm really hoping the Cobra control arms will make a big difference. Not sure what to expect.

RWD was a big factor in my decision to get a Mustang. It's always fun when I "have to" make a U-turn just using the throttle.
