My father has recently turned over a 1992 Mustang LX to me. He tried to turn it into some sort of a respectable tuner but ended up putting a stupid looking body kit and doing some minor modifications. As far as I know he has only installed the body kit, ford racing headers, and a magnaflow cat back exhaust system. The car rides slow and hesitates alot when I accelerate. As a new-comer to the mustang tuner world I need somebody to tell me what to do to make this thing fast and to maximize the true potential of this car. My biggest problem is that I don't know what the next step to take is.

A simple tune up and adjust the timimg and check the TPS for starters. It all depends on age and if the car has been sitting also.

Haha thanx man, that's probably a good idea, i think while i'm having the bumpers replaced i'm gonna have them take a look at the engine to see exactly what's wrong with it right now before I can move forward into some good mods, to be honest i'm really not sure if anything else is wrong, ive only driven it a couple of times so i'm brand new to the car

Start with the basic tune up, it most likely needs one and if it's set a while, you might need to flush the cooling and fuel systems.

well since you say headerS i am assuming its the V8 mustang so you got a good mustang thank your father, then see what you are working with, tune it up, change all fluids, clean it up and then make a list of what it has and needs as well as what you would like it to have and then go from there. (these are the steps I take with an used car I get) this way you know what you have
