Well that's gonna happen regardless but it's more of which makes more sense [1st. suspension 2nd.Gears 3rd tires] or [1st tires 2nd suspension 3rd Gears] or [1st Gears 2nd tires 3rd suspension] I thought about adding a torque converter to the list but I'm not doing anything close that would make use of that yet

Each one will be done by a month at a time with bills and actually being responsible with my money so... I don't know which one I'm willing to do last. Obviously I tend to focus on mod installation I can do myself but I'm ready to go all in on gears but nobody is promising same day install.

I work 7 days a week and she is my only transportation so it's tough finding the time to schedule it and have my car back without missing work.

Well maybe this will help...
What are you plans for modding? What's the most expensive project? Do you plan on going full suspension? How aggressive are you planning on wheels and tires?
If it was me...
1. Completely full suspension upgrade
2. Wheels/tires
3. Gears
Knock out the most expensive first...

I had in mind simple suspension mods like lowering springs,upper n lower control arms, panhard bar ...

Wheels : I figure to stay stock up front w/ 15" wheels MT's or Hoosier Street Radials, new rotors , new brakes , custom paint calipers

Gears: 4.30s and torque converter

Took it on it's first ride, after installing caliper covers last Thursday...
Working so much, I come home, open the garage door, look at the car, go to bed, then go to work again... Oh, and once in a while I give the wife a kiss too!

Pulled the front end off so I could get a good look and pictures of the turbo. Looks to me like it is set up properly on the waste gate ---- so why is a 5 lb spring going to 10+?
















I even took the manual boost controller out of the system when engine #2 went in to eliminate something with that causing the overboost. Still saw it go to 7 lbs at 3,000 rpm in third gear. Figured it was just a little boost creep and the car was fine - taking it WOT in third it spiked over 10 and lost a piston.

Chromed out the tail and third brake light. Added the 67-68 style "MUSTANG" letters to the trunklid. Installed rear lowering springs and adjustable panhard bar.

I drove my recently painted baby down to Florida for vacation and got some great pics on the beach. How does she look?

Ah, super 10s, great mufflers. Interesting set up, offset/offset, it will sound great!

You know they are going to sound good when the muffler shop calls up and confirms that you want these welded on your Mustang. I told him I wouldn't hold him personal responsible for any tickets. Lol

Well considering its a 2V, it will sound good. Even if they aren't the best performance engines they always had great sound going for them. Nothing like the sound of a 2V.

They sound good. Still pretty loud when you stand on it but they do sound good when you are just cruising or at idle. I like it.

Debating on the Ford Procal tune. I'd only have a little longer than a year of the FRPP warranty left though.

I like the cdc, but I'm biased.

I keep going back and forth. You have to cut the fog light brackets for the cdc grille so my fog lights are ziptied in. #redneckengineering
