Default What Ive been doing since Ive sold the bonneville...

Seens the local mustang forum has way too much drama right now I thought Id come back here and post a bit, much more relaxed atmosphere. Anyways since the bonneville has sold Ive also sold my Impala and picked up a mustang in april. I purchased a house, built a big garage/shop, and now Im in the process of building my Mustang.

I now own a 92 Mustang GT Convertible, its pretty much stock right now besides bolt ons, I didnt want to sink too much cash into a car to replace it with something better anyways. The better has now started... I just got my shortblock back and the specs are below. The heads should be finished soon and shipped to me.

Now for the good stuff, now that my garage is finished (well pretty much) Im going to operate on the mustang over winter. The short and gritty of it all, 351W + T76 Q Trim. Ed Curtis and Steve Urist told me with the combination Im running with a moderate 18lbs of boost I should make ~800RWHP.. So look forward to more details down the road. No one in the local mustang club knows anything, and because of how some things are Id rather not let anyone know.

FMS M-6010-A351 Sportsman 351W block (bored .020)
FMS M-6303-G351 Forged Steel Crankshaft (cleveland main journals 2.749", chevy 2.10" rod journals. 3.5" stroke)
