I'd say that's a bit more than mildly modified - sounds like a beast.Originally Posted by MCaesar
I once read an editorial that called them this generation's '57 Chevy.
"Walkin' the thin white line on this smiling road. 40 days, I've been all alone. Draggin' my heart all across this world. I got 100 miles to go before I get back to see my girl. Aint got nothing, I got nothing to lose. I keep walking away these blues. The cup is broken, but it's half full. I got 100 miles to go before I get back to see my girl."

I disagree. That's mildly modified. It's a pretty fair number of things, but other than the heads he didn't do anything internal to the motor. I guess it's all relative, but here's a partial list of stuff done to my '91 lx:
302 removed, 393 stroker installed
victor jr heads, ported to stage 2 (whatever that is) by bennett racing
victor jr intake
holley hp 1000 carburetor
some kind of long tube headers, they were on it when I got it
cheap promotive converter
4.10's in factory 8.8 rear end
strange aftermarket axles
ALL aftermarket suspension, including:
granatelli tubular front crossmember
granatelli tubular front control arms
granatelli caster/camber kit
90/10 front struts
front drag springs
wolfe racecraft rear upper and lower control arms
drag springs in back
drag shocks in back
8 pt rollcage welded in
subframe connectors welded in
dumbass pin on fiberglass hood
power brakes eliminated
power steering eliminated
edelbrock plate nitrous kit, jetted for 200 hp
12 gallon fuel cell with 2 #8 lines exiting
2 #8 lines and 2 holley blue pumps, one feeding carb and one feeding nitrous kit
That's pretty heavily modified, though not to the max. The firewall is in the stock location, and the car is not even minitubbed.
I run it on 10.5 inch slicks, and it cuts pretty good short times. As a matter of fact, just this last Friday, it set a new best short time-1.36. This is a footbrake car-no transbrake or linelock. I just leave on the bottle.

'73 dodge challenger, 340 car with a 318 currently
'67 4 door valiant, building a 517 stroker for it
'70 4 door valiant, /6, runs very well, ugly as hell
'91 mustang, has run a 9.76 and is street driven
'71 chrysler newport, 4 door 360 car, runs great
'78 d100 truck, /6, weak as hell and indestructible
'86 ramcharger 2wd, set up for big block, need to put one in
'75 dart sport, wrecked in front (bought for parts)
I agree with v8440
I was one of the first to go with the JBA headers/SVO exhaust/flowmaster muffler combos on the island. But later, mostly after I got out of the game, guys started taking it to another level.
There used to be this company in Texas called Car Tech. They built a turbo package for the Mustang that had a top speed of 177 to 185 mph....in a Mustang! JBA came out with their "Dominator" package. Everyone jumped into the game.
YEs, the 87-93 Mustang was exactly like the 57 CHevy. It was cheap and easy to make go fast.
But the brakes were absolutely pathetic. My 95 Impala SS could brake circles around it even with the family on board. It was almost criminal how fast you could make those cars go with drum brakes!

Speaking of JBA, that's where my Magnum is at right now. They're doing R&D with my car for a header and cat back system.

This is a pass from a few hours ago in the mustang.
