    My 750HP Boat vs my buddy's legendary 500HP N/A Fox Body Vert. After this, we hit the STRIP for a few, which is ill-advised for Road Course Slicks, so don't do it. LOL! STANG

    Right now I have a 2007 V6 Mustang and I've been wanting to trade it/ sell it. I would be able to get anywhere from 6000-7000 selling it to a private buyer so with me wanting to get another mustang I've been saving up in the mean time. Plan is to spend anywhere between 8k-12k on a new mustang...

    Ok this is going to be a little winded but I want to try and give all the info I have. First, my "baby" is a 1989 LX 2.3L coupe that I have done a lot of restoration to already, both cosmetically and mechanically. I have run into a huge challenge and I am hoping that there is someone on here...

    Check out this video from a Belgian Hillclimb back in 2010.Ā  Yves Faber in a tweaked and tuned Foxbody attacks the hill with plenty of control and enviable style. It literally drifts its entire way up the damp course!

    I know there is a ton of posts about this but they are kinda messy and hard for me to find the answer I'm looking for. I want to run 17x10 wheels 5 lug with disc brakes on my rear end. Currently my axle housing is bent so I will need to get either a 8.8 from a fox or from a sn95. If I get a...

    Hello everyone, I am Cam Jan. I just recently graduated dental school and treated myself to this 1985 4 eyed notch 5.0 SSP. She's original everything with 50k miles. The paint is a little beat up and needs to be redone IMO but the interior is beyond uber clean. She was a 1 owner car that was...

    Last night i installed the energy suspension motor mounts into my 88 GT. The passenger side was simple and seats into the bracket correctly. However, the driver side doesnt seat all the way down into the bracket, even though i let the motor down off the jack, and the passenger side was Not...

    which would be better a 5.0 foxbody or 4.6 new edge here is the link for them https://www.carsforsale.com/vehicle/details/14060395 https://www.carsforsale.com/vehicle/details/11161492 which would be faster, easier to insure and maintain and easier to restore, and cooler?

    I have a 1986 ford mustang with the 3.8 v6 in it. These came stock with a 3 speed auto no overdrive with 2.73 gears, gas mileage sucks because of only 3 gears and I drive it everyday.

    Hi guys! I'm new here and new to owning a Foxbody. I am currently looking at a 1996 F150 motor and tranny. The foxbody does not have motor or trans. It originally had a stock 5.0. I know that I'll have to change the water pump , timing cover and some other stuff for it to fit. Since the 5.0 is...

    I am building a 5.0 engine over the winter with hopes to drop it into a fox over the summer. I will be grabbing a 5.0 from the junkyard after great inspection, re-ring the bottom end but leave it stock. Doing the classic h/c/i on top. Obviously I am on a budget and my goals are a street car...
