1992 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 (Wild Strawberry/Titanium)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Vortech V-1 Supercharged big bore 347 stroker. (It has a .040 over bore bring the final CID to an actual 349) It has Edelbrock Victor Jr. Series Upper/Lower Intake, Heads and water pump. JE forged Pistons, Eagle rods and crank, and a custom grinded Crower Cam with .575 lift. It has a full vortech Fuel system, with two Vortech T-Rex fuel pumps in the back bumper, Vortech F/P regulator and fuel rails, pushing 42lb/hr injectors. It is cooled by a fluidyne radiator, and cranks from an optima battery. Out the back are BBK shorty headers, followed by a flow master off road H-Pipe and finally flow master 40 series mufflers.
Interior
The interior is mostly original, all super clean. Recently I installed a 6 point roll bar, so out came the back seat. The rear seat delete is in progress so at the moment its not too pretty back there.

It has an auto meter tach w/ shift light, and auto meter wide band, fuel press, water temp, oil pressure, and boost gauges. It has SJH 5 point harnesses on the roll bar as well.
Exterior
It is somewhat of a Saleen clone with a Saleen spoiler and other body kit pieces. It sits on 17" ROH wheels with 275/45/R17 Nitto NT555R drag radials on the back and 245/45/R17 Nittos on the front. The bottom of the car was repainted from the original grey to Titanium
Audio
A Sony deck, kenwood speakers through out powered by a kenwood amp that sits under the driver's seat. In the back it has two Kicker 12" subwoofers in a custom molded box, powered by a Rockford Fosgate Amp.
Suspension
It has bbk springs throughout, BBK caster/camber plates up front, Upper/Lower torque box reinforcements, tubular upper/lower control arms, and Competition engineering 3-way adjustable rear drag shocks. There are 3.73s in the rear end and drilled rotors up front surrounding a 5 lug conversion.
Wheel and Tire
The transmission is an astro performance A-5, basically a bulletproof T-5, with some better gear ratios. On top of it sits a hurst short throw shifter, along with a lakewood SFI bell housing and driveshaft loop behind. Coupled with all of this is a ford racing billet steel SFI flywheel and a center force Dual friction clutch w/ Steeda clutch cable.
