Smile Greetings

Hi, my name is michael neal. I am a certified auto mechanic, been in the field for 14 years. I own a 98 mustang gt, lots of fun but a bit under powered, the only mod it had is a cold air intake. I have plans to do an exhaust system and to lower it. Its atlantic blue and very clean even underneath. have had the mustang for two years, I even race it at the local SCCA out at rout 66 raceway in joliet Il. been doing pretty good but have one big problem, it pushes pretty hard. will upload pictures of the mustang as soon as i figure out how. nice talking to you all, hope to hear from you.

Re: Greetings

What do you mean pushes pretty hard? Alignment wise?

Welcome if its Bright Atlantic Blue (not the darker one) then its a rare color, always liked that color.

Get some pics up! As I am sure you are aware there are tons of aftermarket for the 3.8L, a built 4.2 stroked engine using F150 internals with ported intakes/heads and a custom cam can get you nearly 250rwhp which isnt to bad for an OHV v6 motor.

Re: Greetings

not sure about the color, how would i find out if it is the bright atlantic blue , it just says atlantic blue on the dealer sticker, no were on the car, have looked.
for the question of pushing. yes it's alignment, doesn't do well in sharp cornering, wants to keep going forward. i will say the auto trans i have (stock) i pretty bullit proof, it gets a hard work out when racing, also just learning how to drift with it using the e-brake and gas which lightens up on the pushing some. i do have some pictures of the stang but the wife says i need a cable between the camra and computer. so it's best buy i go. like i said the only mod i have is a cold air intake. also just so you guys know, i'm a chevy convert to ford. this is my first mustang let alone a ford. i lost faith in chevy. so i'm on a small learning curve when it comes to a mustang. my wife has a 2005 ford taurus.

Angry Re: Greetings

well guys my pony is down, coming back from best buy getting that cable had to avoid some moron coming into my lane, ended up in a road construction site, don't worry no body damage but hit something pretty hard left rear .noticed thet the left rear was lower then the right side. had it towed home. just came in after inspecting it. well all i got to say is i guess i'm doing shocks, struts and springs first before i do the exhaust. left rear spring is broken and shock blewout. some people just don't know how to drive, the F%#ker didn't even stop just kept going. well looks like i have some work to do.
