    About $3900 including the cost for the car. This doesn't include items I've sold quite a few things, which have brought the cost down to about $3300 (such as blown engine/trans that came with it and extra parts here and there)
    I'll post the entire list of purchased items after the car is done

    You can wire in a subwoofer into the Mach 460 to make it the equivalent of a Mach 1000, which is basically a Mach 460 with a subwoofer offered in the New Edge 'Stangs. Take a look at MustangWorld:

    Mustangworld Subwoofer install to Mach460

    I haven't done this myself, but the tech articles I have read from there have all been accurate.

    speaking of driving a stang, I hung out with an old friend last night and he let me drive his 98 mustang. First time I've even rode in a mustang, and he let me drive it :)

    a lot faster? wow, mine's been over a year now lol
    and my started died on me (went cheap with ebay starter) so I need to fix that, pretty sure the leak is still there, but it doesn't really show unless the system is pressurized
    you have a thread on your build?

    No I dont. Wish I had done one......but yea, yours is a lot faster than mine. I have a lot of cosmetic work to do on mine thats is taking a ton of time. Besides, like I said, this is kind of a back burner build. Just working on mine when I am not to busy with other things

    I ordered the end lines which attach the fuel rail to the chassis' fuel lines, they're like $50 on ebay or such for used ones. But I've also heard issues of random fires being caused from these lines, but I couldn't find another way to do it :-/

    I have heard the same from several people. My engine still had the lines that you are talking about on it from the '94 gt that it came out of. When I pun the engine in, the lines were a little to short and were bent weird so they wouldnt connect. I ended up installing the Aeromotive fuel sysyem on mine. I just don't know why the stock gt lines would'nt work???
