Not everyone likes Fox Mustangs and I do understand, it seems like everyone and their brother has one and they've been done to death. It's an antiquated design from the late 70's and it has the sophistication of a stone ax. The stock suspension is terrible and the body makes all kinds of noises when you drive down the road. The stock engines are heavy, old and pretty inefficient by today's standards. So, there's that. On the other hand, for people like myself, the Fox Mustang is affordable. you can buy a running one for around a grand if you look long enough and it has an immense amount of cheap, available parts at dirt cheap prices, plus It's a fairly easy car to work on. I'm currently running 12 PSI @ 9:1 compression ratio in my car, so it will stay together for the long haul. I offset the low boost pressure with more spark timing, which makes the engine pretty responsive. I swap back and forth between transmissions, currently preferring the automatic for daily driving in traffic. The built A4LD is a pile of crap, even when properly built, so somewhere in my car's future, there's another swap coming. I have far more parts in my car than those listed and being a bottom feeder in the modified car world, I have to wait for scraps to fall before I can move forward. This year's goal is to convert to electric power steering and finish some suspension upgrades. I'm also working on a low buck SLA suspension (uses Pontiac Solstice upper control arms). Next year I would like to double the HP. I have the parts to do it, but definitely not the time ( wife and I had a baby girl this year) so I've long since learned to appreciate what I have and just roll with it. :) Thanks for checking out my car.
