Drifting

So I'm into something new... Drifting. I plan to head cam and intake swap my car which I'm in the process off right now. And turbo my car after I go to school and become a welder. I wanna come with an under the hood design like a color scheme. Black and chrome would be too plain right? Or just right.
I plan to paint the car satin black still.
I want a saleen body kit with the saleen heat extracted hood. And wing.
Saleen wheels 17x9 front and 18x10 rear.

My suspension is all changed.

How much pounds of boost can I go on forged internals?

I don't have an answer to your question. But drifting is an amazing sport!

I do know your rear gear is a crucial part of drifting. 3.73's or better will get you siding pretty effortlessly. Unless you wanna weld the gears you have. But I wouldn't recommend that.

Check out my thread, yesterday was my first time drifting at an actual event.

Id put less time in power and more in suspension... one of my favorite drift cars has a whopping 80 hp and would leave you in the dust op...and as said a steep gear is a must

+1 my S13 has a 100% stock Ka24e sohc. I believe it rakes in a whopping 90rwhp! But a full adjustable suspension, subframe connectors and welded gears (this is not a street car) because welded gears are terrible and dangerous to use on the highway. I do plant to swap in a Q45 rear diff. But I'm taking care of some rust issues around the firewall and underbody.

I've been told that mustangs are horrible to drift in because of the weight, but I know nothing if drifting since I don't plan on trying it out on my stang. Too much money for new tires

The weight is just fine...only around 3200 lbs for a v6...like we said it comes down to a stiff suspension and the rear end

Might just be my suspension that is out of whack but I feel like my car won't handle tight turns too well. Whenever I get on one of those turns in the highway I feel like my car could tip over if I go any faster or tighter. I even have wider tires and rims on my rear, shouldn't that help with stability?

You know I wasted all this time being the fastest and still like always someone always faster well going fast has gotten real boring.

Till...

I met up with some guys and girls last night I'm talking Tokyo drift type people. Man great inspiration I wanna do it. And keep a low profile to my family and show them my new passion. Last night helped me realize what I wanna do in my spare time. I wore an American muscle shirt and they were like your not one of those straight line drivers are you? Asked me if I drift, and I could t even say a word! These guys had Honda 2000s, a skyline, 240sx nissans, nissan zs, rx8, rx7s, maxed out all cars. And the Asian guy was like the big guy he owned the shop. And his shop is a building away from my gfs where I now work machine shop. Last night was awesome.

You think the 03-04 cobra rear end would be handy?

I have steeda ball joints, steeda bump steer kit that I never I stalled yet, h&r springs, tokico blue shocks and struts I plan to do more but is this a good set up I can do some pretty fast curves without little effort of feeling like the car is going to flip over in fact the car feels as if it shows better handling a million times better than before

A panhard bar or better would be a watts link, would really help the suspension. A torque arm would also make your mustang much more graceful but are more pricey. I'm not sure if these will stiffen the car to much as I'm more into mountain runs and road racing. This video shows how good these cars can handle when set up properly http://youtu.be/AzpDOFOvdek

I wouldn't worry about looks if your looking into drifting. Your bound to smack something here or there if your wanting to learn (and get good). Just get suspension parts and forgot about paint for now.

You need to stiffen your ride up big time...strut tower brace...rear shock tower brace...full length sub frame connectors...thats a start. Your tires are fine for learning. Take your time you're getting really gung ho so far and you havent even really drifted yet lol. You need a practice lot

I know I can do this it's like I've been inspired. I'm an art kind of person. 8 years of talented art, 4 years of guitar, two years of band, and played a lot of keyboard. I work at a machine shop. I will take up welding. I have a passion for cars. And it's all I know now. Plus I also love mma and shooting guns. I love out doors.
When it comes to drifting its amazing and even tho I am good at controlling my car in hydro plane'n I had some real close calls I'm ready to learn how to drift after all I consider it an art

The more you post lime that the less serious you sound lol...but back to topic prwctice. Just because you can slide in a wet environment which by the way is simple...doesnt mean its easy on dry...so like i said take your time...try it out before spending a lot of cash on something you may find you dislike afterall

A hydraulic rear hand brake would help you break traction since you can't clutch kick.

If you've got $1500 to invest into parts and labor, sure lol but I'd worry about suspension first off.
