    Agreed. I was not thrilled about the carb setup. I am probably going to go this way for an efi

    Those Cobras are nice! Personally I like the Type 65 Coupe, but either are badass.

    Yeah I am scared of the 302. I could not imagine having a 427
    Manual everything as well

    302 should be more than enough to have fun with! Will make some nice noises while doing it too

    Very easy motor to get 300whp out of for not much money

    Someday I'll have a fox body. Whenever I get serious about it something always pops up like a wedding or a house :mad:

    My cousin had a Jimmy with a 383 stroker that was extremely boisterous. Doesn't need to be huge to make a lot of noise.

    You dug that grave with your silly "planning for the future"

    And 300hp in a 2200 pd car is junk. Your like a 14 sec car.

    I'd go big block all day. Next whip will be a little coupe with a big block. If it can't lift wheels it ain't worth it.





    I'm kidding. It'll be fun with a decent 302. The 48 spun tires just fine with one. Plus your out there for fun.

    most of us fox body mustang folk easily ran 13/14s with minor bolt ons. and thats in a 3200lb car. He'll have plenty of hp and torque to have fun on the street. He's not building a drag car.

    It is embarrassing how slow I drive. Again, it will just be my nice weather cruiser and give me something to tinker with.
    I also might wrap it myself. I have a thing for dark grey and flat black strips.

    To be fair when you have a cool vehicle you have to drive slow. It's heat bag. You will walk on it from time to time but driving slow is pretty normal.

    Also add 15 min to any stop you make and never be in a rush. Everyone will want to talk to you all the time

    Don't do it yourself. Ask pimpkins how well wrapping his mini is going

    That's a job for professionals.

    Is it that hard? I have been watching a ton of videos and they make it seem so easy.

    I feel like I am neurotic enough to be able to pull it off. I love the idea of being able to change colors of the car on my own in my garage over the winters

    wrapping a car would be fucking torture.

    That's a curvy car, it's going to be a bitch to line up but it would be something cool to do over the winter

    Plastidip isn't a half bad idea either
