    Hello, I just picked up a 1994 mustang gt. This is the first mustang Ive owned and I havent worked on any in the past. I thought it would be a good idea to tear it down to a long block and get some fresh seals and paint on the parts... Ill post pics in a few.... Looking forward to learning alot about the 5.0 motor and mustangs in general.

    Spotless T/A... that Hurst/C&C hatch is a real collectors item. I think thats the only one I've actually seen mounted on a car in the past 20 years. Looks like you had a blower on in that first pic - what buildup do you have now?

    Welcome to the forums. By the scenery in your pics I'm guessing - Burr Ridge or Hinsdale?

    I was running a paxton sn92, but pulled it off. tuneability was a pain and it really had to work hard to feed 385 cubes. Im now n/a which is good for reliability. I should be able to push 420-450hp for the next 100k or so,,,,, which would be equal to 142 years since I put less than 1k miles on it in the last year since its been running.:D. Im actually from the south side, located by Midway.
