Default 89 gt mustang

Hi i`m new here and thinking about getting a 5.0 i want a fox body 87 to 93 i know of a 89 gt for sale just wondering if this is a good year or should i find a newer year i`m on a tight budget so this 89 is a little cheaper say then a 92 or 93 i want to add some bolt ons and have fun with it.

pics and description would be helpful as mentioned

some say that the '89 5.0s are "ideal year" because they are Mass Air and dont have the airbag....

pesonally, I prefer my airbag, but some people like tilt wheel better...

89 notch 5speed will be one of the lightest and fastest out of the foxs, thats not factoring in the cobra's in 93.

i like em, i have one

post some pics and description of your possible ride

I have not bought the car yet but it is a hatch and it is all stock what would be some good and more budget minded bolt on`s that would help with proformance its also a 5 speed.

...Start with a good tune up (with fuel filter), bump the timing, Intake & TB, 3.73 gears and Exhaust!

do the above, and as for intake, remove air silencer, if it is still there, and put in a K&N drop in Filter... cheap CAI....


and when you do a tune up, replace with more performance style parts,

get a crane or MSD ignition coil, whichever you prefer, I picked Crane

8mm wires

hawk brake pads, powerslot rotors..

stuff that is better than stock, but wont kill your budget

and replace your fuel filter... its a nasty job, even after you depressurize the fuel system, but it is night and day... the car will thank you
