Best I can say is to keep doing what you can to the car, hit up mid level companies through their websites (car audio, etc.) and see what happens from there. What have you done so far?

I have sent a bunch of emails with a pic of my car. I have one body shop that said bogey would do it possibly I got to go see the owner on Sunday at car show we are in. He is going to paint for me if put his company's name on my car.

That's a damn good start, just keep building on that and sending emails until your car is done. Make sure to mention in your email who you have on board already to show that theres interest in being a part of what you're doing. Best of luck.

Cold air intake that drops into the fender, 373gears, under pulleys, and was told it has a small street cam but not sure. It has alittle lope to it but cant tell if its because of the pulleys. I have gt40 intake upper and lower manifold not on it yet. I want to put a turbo on it thats my next big purchase for it but that will be awhile.

Cool, dumps are a good idea on the exhaust. I'm pushing a '94 GT, only actual mods so far are an off road H and 2 chamber muffs. MSD cap/coil if thats considered.Other than that I killed the spoiler and painted it.Not sure where I want to go with it but im down to 2 options:

1. Buy another dd, 347 and swap the auto for a T5 or
2. Keep it as is and buy another Mustang with manual trans already.throw money at it instead with no surprises.

I want to start running at the track and my deadline is October.

Lol my brother had a fox like that, wasn't crazy loud but he'd set off plenty of car alarms in parking garages. That's what got me into Mustangs.

I'll be going over the engine, trans and suspension to be ready to go so thats where my question comes up. My 94 needs everything so I figure why not just make it track worthy and buy a 4 or V6 dd. Only issue is the AODE. It's gotta go if thats the case and a T5 rebuild is cheaper than a manual swap. 4R70W's are good but I want that missing HP.

You can buy a good used v6 thats a 5sp off craigslist. I think and this is personal opinion but as a dd the auto would do just fine as longs you dont run the dog **** out of it. My x and a v6 auto it had close to 300k on it and drove like a dream
