96-04 Winter Projects

Hey guys and gals, seeing as how I posted in the wrong section to someone else's winter project section, I figured we could start our own here.

well lets hear what we have waiting for next spring!

heres what the stallion is getting in my garage now that the Bike is totaled.

ok with the bike being gone, and whatnot now, the funds have shifted a little. First winter where the car can be worked on pretty aggressively. And seeing as How I am moving to FL in a couple months, and I am going to finally put the car into some shows, might as well have her ready to go am I right? lol

Exterior
-Roush Front Bumper
-My Own Fiberglass Side Skirts
-My Own Fiberglass Rear Lip (exhaust cutout delete setup)
-Flat Black Stripes with Anodized blue trim (in progress)
-Anodized Blue Extended Lugs
-Anodized Blue Painted Caliper Covers
-Blue Side Mirror Overlay Tint (think beemers)
-True Blue Headlights
-True Blue Foglights
-Smoked Foglights
-True Blue Reverse Lights

Wheels And Tires
-Wedssport 18x8 SA55M Black/Blue Fronts
-Wedssport 18x10 SA55M Black/Blue Rears
-Nitto NT555R rubber

Interior
-Striping To Mock the Exterior
-Blue Backlit Guages
-Blue Neons

Performance
-On3Performance Turbo kit
-373 Gears
-Rear Diff Rebuild Kit
-Jegs Install Kit
-75mm TB/Plenum
-JLT Intake

Engine Dress Up
-Stainless Steel Lines
-Anodized Blue Accents Everywhere

I might have forgotten a few things, but the rough budget is about 7 grand in the long run. cant wait to have her all finished up hopefully before the move down to FL so I wont have to take an unfinished car down with me!

I was checking out that on3performance kit myself. I know it's probably not the best quality but truthfully I only get to drive my car maybe twice a month in the summer so I wouldn't be putting the same amount of miles on it most people would.

well lets hear what we have waiting for next spring!
I have a relatively stock 96 GT.
First thing first. I am doing a pi swap. If I can get ahold of some cams before hand that would be great. But I plan on doing a mild port and polish on the heads. Have them hottanked and remaned. Hopefully before they got on I can get a decent set of shorty headers.

I also have a frpp aluminum drive shaft waiting.

I have a upr off road x pipe to put on as well.

A set of eibach proline springs and not sure on the shocks and struts yet.

Possibley a 3.73 in the rear.

And after that I will def need a custom tune.

If all goes well she will be getting a fresh coat of paint as well.

Re: 96-04 Winter Projects

I just completed a full exhaust set up with long tubes, prochamber and flow 40's (sounds sick!)

Now i am piecing together a Vortech Kit to go with the V1 T-trim head unit i bought. I already have aftercooler, heat exchanger, all piping, 39# injectors, coolant tank and pump. Just looking for a few more odds and ends and then on she goes!! looking for 400 at the wheels!

The guy who tunes mustangs here is a good friend of the gentleman who makes/sells these kits. He said its good for having something different, but make sure you buy all of the recommended upgrades or your gonna be shooting yourself in the foot. I have much higher goals for a motor for this car, but I cant be upset with the numbers this kit will put down for the money. I mean, 440hp on a stock gt motor? all I am wanting is a 500hp DD is that too much to ask for

This winter I want to add a cobra dual pump tank and larger lines. I already have the cobra tank and 2 Ford GT super car pumps with Kenne Bell Boost a pump. I also want to add Goodridge stainless steel brake line. Next year a 98 cobra teksid block which I already have. I am no beginning to source my forged internals so I can have Pro line race engines assemble everything. Here is my current mod list. Todd

I went with LT's bc they are worth up to 50 HP when i put the charger on and i have plans on down the road to build a forged short block with TFS heads and a set of blower cams. Plus i got them "used" for a great deal. The guy couldnt get them installed and they sat in his garage for a year. So i got a set of $600 Hedman LT's for $200, couldn't pass that up
