Hello from SoCal!

New member obviously, just got handed the keys to my first Mustang. Long story short, it was my mother-in-laws and I have wanted this car for over 20 years. She finally bought a new 2016 GT and walked up and handed me keys and said the car was mine!! Hope to learn a lot from here, the car is all stock except for the drivers seat that was replaced because it broke. So any "easy" cool "bolt on's" for a new guy with no experience would be greatly appreciated. Click image for larger version

Hey that's awesome dude!

I would probably start with a good solid cleaning and maybe a different set of wheels with a better offset. My biggest complaint with a mustang is when I see these "upgraded" wheels that have a terrible offset and make the car look skinny.

You could prob snag a set used on craigs then flip the ones you have there.

Then maybe look into some lowering springs and maybe think about maintenance and tune up stuff.

Look forward to seeing your progress.

Congrats! Welcome to the forum. Head to the 79-95 section for some good help on what some good bolt-ons are. What are your plans for the car?

Plans are to get it running with out having idle or restart issues. After that is taken care of then the fun will begin. I just want to be able to stop at a light and have people look and give that thumbs up because the car looks and sounds great.

Is it running rough at idle? Sounds like a solid goal. I'm looking forward to seeing it progress.

I will search the tech area and look for some answers as I am sure it has been asked a thousand times already. Yes, it does idle rough when just sitting at a stop but it also will stall out and not restart for what seems like twenty minutes or so and while driving the rpms will shoot up between swifts and that is embarrassing lol. So once those are addressed and fixed I will move on to the fun stuff and start my modding *insert giant smiley face*

Sounds like a solid tune up (plugs, wires, cap & rotor, throttle body cleaning) might be a good place to start. Then possibly the IAC (idle air control). But do yourself a favor if you do start looking at the IAC, pull up some YouTube vids on how to test it first then if you replace it get the actual ford part. The autozone replacements have a tendency to suck
