Howdy all.

We just recently brought home a 80 mustang Ghia that we are about to 5.0HO swap once I finish my truck up.
I got the car as I love fox body mustangs and I wanted something that is good to daily drive for my sister yet something once in a while I could bring to the drag strip for a little fun. I don't care about wining just being able to have fun.
All I had to do to get the car was pull the original 3.3L I6 engine that I didn't want anyways.

She needs a bit of work but I should be able to get it where it needs fairly easy.

I plan to use the stock C4 but rebuild it since it is blown.


Anyways a bit about me. I am 18 and love fast cars and trucks especially when the trucks are 4x4. My personal truck is an 88 F150 4x4 302 C6 auto reg cab long bed with a ton of mods and still going on. Recently the engine threw a rod so I am working on fixing that (got a new 302 to put in but I have to work out a few quirks in it).
While my 88 is down I have a 94 Ford Explorer 4x4 4.0L A4LD auto that I drive everyday with a few mods and still slowly getting more.
When I am not working on cars and trucks I am working on motorcycles. I personally have a 73 Harley Davidson XLCH 1000 sportster with a ton of mods on it too.

I work on all 14 (now) of our vehicles and love it most of the time.

My buddy use to have a 88 Mustang 5.0L that was supercharged with a T-top and a t5 transmission. That stang was awesome!
Hope to find out more about these stangs and be able to help.

Thanks I hope it goes fairly smooth with this project.

how do you like those ported E7 heads. I have to decide if I want to spend the money to port my E7s on my F150, keep them stock, or go with GT40 (not p) heads.

I wish I could T5 swap this car but right now since my sister will be daily drving it she won't drive a stick shift.

So I guess that just means later I will have to buy a car like my buddies. LOL

Welcome! You should do a build thread if you haven't already. I'm sure a lot would like to follow your progress.

Thanks everybody.

Once I get it off the flatbed then I will start the build thread that way I have better pics. Either that or when I start getting a few more parts. Maybe I might before to get a better understanding but I don't see much of a reason.
My build will be slow as my main priority is my baby plus I am learning when it comes to stangs I am mostly an F150 guy.
