Hey guys/gals.....I am new here and a avid lover of stangs. I just never went hi-po with one. More show that n go. Anyway, I just bought a 85 5.0 from an old guy that has like 80k original miles for 500 bucks. It seems to be in very good running condition (completely stock). I am going thru and replacing common items like starter, battery , alternator, tune........ My question is. Is this year even worth trying to make a beast out of? I dont hear much about the carbeurated 50's these days. Should I hold out and wait to getmy hands on 88-93 50? Or can something be made of this year as well? Also where do you guys start when you hi-po your cars? I am thinking on adding headers and tricked out exhaust first (well as tricked out as I can get in Cali). Any info appreciated......and I just got my "jeg's" catalog today too.
