i'm running into problems with the stang. unfortunately, it is running on 7 cylinders, and i'm a broke kid working every hour thrown at me. cars got 206,000 miles or so on it. talking about rebuilding the motor. unfortunately i can't afford to do it the way i want. so it would be just rebuilt bottom end, maybe ported stock heads, maybe stock cam, and 93 cobra intake for now. i also need to put in a new fuel pump, new power steering pump. new plugs and wires, 3.73s. find out what the loud thud i hear under my car is and fix that. i'm considering taking a car loan out and just getting a lightning. since i dont have the time to work on the stang since i'm working trying to save up enough to fix it. i posted this in talk, because i just want opinions on this. i'm scared to put together the motor and just have the stock horsepower rating, and be very ****ed off with the car. i'm sure it'll have a little bit more pep then stock, but what i wanna know is it going to be like wow. noticeable? i don't wanna spend a grand or so rebuilding it and only be able to run 15s.
