Just another 3.8 v6 owner

Just thought I'd introduce myself and my 1994 Mustang convertible
her upcoming hospital visit will include the following
  • Engine Rebuild
  • Custom Fenders
  • Custom hood
  • Floor pan repair
  • New top installation
  • Spoiler install
  • new side scoops
  • LH quarter panel extension replacement

the road to recovery will be a rough one but we're happy to be driving it.

Re: Just another 3.8 v6 owner

I see you are going to install a new top, if you are doing it your self it's better on a hot sunny day so the new top will stretch, did mine and it wasn't very hard except the tiny screws in the strip buy the windshield all but two broke off but with some drilling i got that fixed. Also make sure you do not cut to much off the pieces of top that hook on the body around the decklid the top will shrink a little, I had mine tight and it keeps on pulling loose. Also depending on if you have the money when you have the engine rebuilt buy a reman crank for a 4.2L from autozone and new pistons and have the 3.8 bored and stroked it will make a huge difference in power


Do you live in KY or TN

Re: Just another 3.8 v6 owner

i will be installing the top myself, right now i'm just trying to locate one.. I'm thinking about getting one of the easy fit tops but not sure yet. Also once I save up enough money to actually start the build I will start a build thread. I was not expecting the master kit to be so expensive for the mustang. The master kit for my van was $400 with pistons, rods and mains. the 3.8L master kit is $1091 at Autozone not really sure this build will actually get started (aside from the top) before cold weather hits.

Mustang Convertible Top/Plastic Window (1994-2004): eBay Motors (item 170535143237 end time Oct-01-10 16:17:14 PDT)

There is a link to one, not sure if its the same seller. Also I'll let you know on the motor, it might be awhile though I have to save up the money to buy the tuner I need unless I get approved for this darn credit card
