Im bored because Im in the army and they decided i have to work tomorrow at 0430 in the morning. So tonight plan was ruined and i was thinking ignition because i believe it was the 94-98 mutants that had the ignition problem like it was missing the extra spark it needed and msd made ignition coils for it that got rid of the problem. Id look forward to that ignition upgrade. I do need a bit of suspension done though cause i feel every damn bump and crack because i have stock suspension that the owner before me cut an inch off. And my rear end is way too loose.

If your engine is stock and it is not missing there is really no need to upgrade the ignition. I am running MSD coils with a KB boost-a-spark, but i am also pushing 16* of boost.

For not i would thro in some 410 and do a full poly bushing kit, including the front control arms. And upper/lower control arms if it is in the budget.

Your going to need a lot more then 410 to make an 8 sec stang.

if you do mostly city driving for you DD 410 would be the ticket all around. Gas mileage and fun.

Lol if i wanted ot an 8 second stand id put a different engine and tyranny in it all together and get myself a 03 cobra motor but Im keeping it simple for now it costs around 1200 dollars just to install the 410s i have now which i really don't want to spend on just gears for now i need a better air flow and suspension. My lousy standard cold air intake isn't doing enough i want to get the pi heads and intake manifold and a better fuel pump/rails/injection

8 second Mustang talk is just ridiculous...
Anyway, who told you it costs $1200 to install gears? That's hilarious.
4.10s are fine for daily driving, unless you're one of those idiots who thinks it'll ruin your top end and gas mileage.

The mysterious 4.10 gear ratio - people make it out to be something it isn't. I don't get it.

If you guys didn't know 16 stars is a lot of boost.

A CAI will net you next to 0 HP gain and will definitely net you 0 noticeable gain.

Do suspension first go here https://www.allfordmustangs.com/forum...al-thread.html

Actually a transmission and gear specialist told me it'll cost that much to do so how much do you think it'll cost?
