    Navy Blue Metallic
    98 T/A w/a little mods...

    +1 on the "idiot"...I mean ..."Shift" light

    And that is one green looking car. I dub the "Miny Hulk"

    And that is one project Mustang that I wouldn't mind losing to in a race.


    Are you going to lose the back seats and put in a roll cage?

    Sweet project. As FBJ stated, most of us here love projects. And in the end, it only matters if you're happy with it.
    trust me thats coming out as soon as I get to it. i need to also install the 98-02 dash cluster and what not, but it looks like it fits in there like a glove. or get a custom pannel made for the speedo to fit in there as well. but my main focus is getting the drivetrain in there.

    These are excellent platforms to build on. You'll have a fun car when it's finished.
    oh yes, the pics do it no justice at all, the green in real life is much more rich in color, if that makes any sense. but its been a cali car its entire life, no rust what so ever, the underbody is just as clean. i have ben look around for along time for the perfect donor fox, and this popped up, a little pricey, but most of the work that i would not be able to do by myself was already done so i cant complain at all

    what's your plans? street, track only, both?


    Some nice 18x 12's in the back and 17x9's in the front will give it a nice stance angle and a mean ass look.

    hoping to pick up a 01-02 ls1 so ill have the ls6 intake, heads maybe down the road, but im thinking cam and pulley only right now, im sure that power alone in such a light weight car will be enough.

    but as far as my cam goes, im thinking ms3 or torquer 2. it will already have a full exhaust, gear, and at least a 3600 stall, and all suspension mods. so it should get up and move just fine

    oh yea, the more i look at it and research this swap... its as if ford knew that the fox body would eventually take the ls1 powerplant and just the combination of the 2 is impressive. a car that already handles like a go-cart, with the hp, tq, and powerband of an ls based motor, like a living wet dream

    I don't think a cam only ls1 is going to run 10's...even with the weight difference. I guess it's possible with a high enough stall.

    OP - What is the weight difference between your car and a f-body?

    i was going to guess around this as well, thanks. I highly doubt ill be in the 10s as a cam only car, but im def going to build it up suspension wise to handle what im going to throw at it and then some. its gonna be able to turn, corner and grip like a dream
