Fox body or?????

Should I save up and buy a 3000-4000 dollar foxbody 5.0 or put that into the 05 v6 I have now and get power that way? And if it's the v6, what mods should I do with that money?

Honestly the most important thing in a car is looks. What do u like better? Most people and I'm guessing you probably like the 05 mustang body better than an old shoebox foxbody lol. The interior also just destroys a foxbodys plastic crap. Next for power a 5.0 obviously wins and also in sound. But your 4.0 can be quick and fun to drive with only a few mods. Gears and tuner will make u feel like u have a different car. Get a 93 octane race tune from bama. It changes the shift points, highers the rev limiter, takes away the speed limiter, increases low end power. Also its good for almost 15rwhp and 15-20 rw torque. Get a CAI along with that (very cheap) its effective with a tune. Next gears and a limited slip differential. A set of 4.10 gears would just blow u away at the increase they give you. Its just a lot of fun with them. You'll need a posi (limited slip differential) to get 2 wheel traction in order to handle the gears. Otherwise you'll just spin ur 1 wheel. A tuner and cold air intake should run u about 450. Gears and a bearing kit (to install) should be about 250. A posi u gotta get lucky and find one for you 7.5inch rear end. I found mine for 81 on ebay used, brand new from auburn theyre 400 (overpriced dont buy). To install the gears and posi take them to a shop, theyll charge between 250-400. Lastly dual exhaust will give u a nice sound, look at clips for the 4.0 with exhaust online. After these mods u will have a fun sports car thatll be respectable and fun to drive. V6 or v8 a car is supposed to be fun to drive. The 4.10 gears and tune will make your car very fun to drive. Whatever money you have left invest in aesthetic mods! Stripes, wheels, grilles, chin lips etc. have fun man

5.0 is cool but if you are used to the awesome s197 interior you will think the fox interior is garbage. This happened when I bought my old camaro after having owned a 2v mustang
Don't take your digital interior for granted lol

I vote +1 on the fox either way lol
