Hello there, I thought I would join the forum to ask some questions. Alright here goes.
I want to set up a mustang for road racing, but I don't know where to start. I will be graduating this year and will be purchasing a mustang as a project car. I dont know what year, but im only looking for a car in the 500 dollar range. I also want to use the 5.0. Can you make the old fox body mustangs handle good? Also, would 4.10 gears be good for say, 120 mph? Which transmisson should I look for, deffiniatly manual. Is there any difference between the early fox bodys, and the older. For example, can I use the same suspension parts on a 79 as i would use on a 89?
If you guys could, would you give me some websites for the following info, so I can look and decide what suspension parts I want to buy.
Springs, struts, sways all that stuff
Brakes, maybe rear disc conversions
Bushings and stuff
And anything else you guys would think is a good idea to make it handle better.
Thanks alot for any information you guys can give me. Also I would like to only spend 5-6k on this project, is that reasonable? I want a good suspension, mild 5.0 (300hp), and am not going to waste any money on appearance. Again, thanks alot.
