Previous/Original owner information?

I was wondering if there was a way to find out contact info for a previous or original owner. I bought the GT from a college kid that didn't even service it while he owned it for 11 months. Now I'm familiar with most MODs but some I don't know (yet) other than visual. Everyday I'm finding new stuff out. The kid says the guy who had it was ramblin on about what he has done to it but it was gibberish to him. I don't even know the brand of springs on her I just know its a 1.5 drop. I'm assuming it has a shorter antenna, another thing I'm not sure about. Gears, don't know the first thing how to tell. I'm use to FWD boosted cars with little torque compared to the GT. My buddy back home with the 04 Termi told me how to check by counting repetitions of the DS with a full repetition of the tire. I dont know it it was tuned or what. It would just make it so much easier to have a full detailed list of what was done. Maybe let someone a lot more familiar with the car drive it? Ive been in fast cars before but behind the wheel of my GT, its crazy powerful. I've gotten into it twice since I bought her last week and I mean WOW!

Any Ideas?

Yeah Ive had two mustangs like this. First car (96 gt) had a few grand in recipts for mod work but little or no details. My current mach 1 had the engine replaced under warranty due to a spun bearing and the build sheet is full of ****. I know it got the mach 1 bottom end but there are notes for head, intake, and cam work. The heads and intake were sent to a local performance shop but no details on what was done. Its really frustrating. When the car had no boltons it made 309rwhp 321rwtq but I don't know what's going on inside the engine but def something.

Re: Previous/Original owner information?

I just wish I could track the owner down and a tleast get an idea of what she's got. When this snow lets up Im going to get down and dirty and try and inspect every aspect to see anything other than stock.

Re: Previous/Original owner information?

I'm the same way on my suspension... I know my car has been dropped two inches, but I don't even know which springs... I know I have 3.73 gears, but I'm not sure about anything else... Obviously a CAI but I would guess I have had some TB work aswell...?

I guess theres no true way into finding out without tearing the whole car down.

I got lucky, I bought mine from a used car dealer and went to car show every weekend after, the last owner (who traded for a old SN95 Cobra with 36K miles) showed up one day and told me about the car lol.
