    Yeah, it's pretty, but not really feeling the carb > FI swap, nor the 40$ RCI seats..

    I like the old wheels, better.

    So what's he think it'll run? I'd guess a mid-low 13 in cool air.

    well the previous owner on the old set up was running low 12's and he didnt know how to drive at all... or properly spray.. so we're definitely hoping for the same if not better. (we can has driver mod?)

    I wouldn't be too surprised to see a high 11 second pass on a cool day. Certainly not in Oviedo in July, but nevertheless...the car looks like it's built to do it. As for the FI to Carb mod, I'm gonna give that a big It's tried and tested, can actually get decent fuel economy nowadays, and is pretty easy to tweak when something isn't running properly.

    The old wheels are ugly. The weld's dress it up a little bit...A nice set of wheels would really wake the car up IMHO.

    You are missing the monster tach visible from the outside on the dash.

    When I was the new motor setup I was hoping for something 351+. IMHO a fox mustang should be supercharged or have a large motor in it. Putting n20 in a 302 based motor will be a quick ride but is honestly not my cup of tea.

    With traction I'll say high 11's if someone can drive. If not the car will easily pull mid to low 12's all day.

    Not my choice in setup...but I do love me a good looking Notch car.
