I have a 87 GT with 373 gears, BBK equal length shorties, h pipe, no cats, flowmasters, holley 255 gph fuel pump, edelbrock performer intake. I am putting a mass air coversion into the caroff another mustang, not the kit. I also purchaseda set of GT 40 P heads.My questions are..... What shouldI do to the heads to maximize performance?What throttle body shouldI use (mm?)? What brand.....should I stay edelbrock? I need to purchase a cold air fender mount, what mm mass air should I purchase? Will my BBK equal length shoties work on these heads? What cam should I run? I am keeping the car naturally aspirated and a stock bottom end with 100k miles. Should I leave the 19lbs injectors alone? Thanks for any feedback

Hello everyone. I have a quick question. I have a 2002 Mustang. I think my starter went out. All it does is click,but the car won't start. I am about to put in a new starter. However, is there a way I can find out if I need to replace the starter or the selonoid?

I ordered the same borla exhaust too, and love the way it sounds it also looks very nice. I have people asking me all the time what kind of exhaust it is because it sounds so good. I got mine from borla parts here, borla 11761 and was pleased with the price a delivery time. You should also check craigslist sometimes you can find a used set.
