Hello, folks. I'm new to this site, but I'm hoping to learn a lot from you all. I am hoping to get my hands on a Mustang Cobra II soon. I don't know much about it, just that it's got a 302 and automatic tranny. It's blue with white stripes. What I want to do with this car is make it a real runner. I would like to rebuild the engine with high compression pistons, and a 4-barrel carb, etc. But, I don't know much about the drive train, such as what size is the differential, etc. Can the stock rearend take the added horsepower? Will the automatic need rebuilt, also? Can it take the abuse of a higher horsepower engine? What mods can I do to make it handle very well? Sorry for all the questions, but I'm very excited about this. I really don't even know what year it is yet. Thanks in advance!!!
