I've actually had a few people ask me that question. Funny thing is, I had an 88 Escort GT I had bought new...same color even! This is my first mustang. So it has been a learning process for me. I have always been a VW guy. Both aircooled and watercooled. I've goofed around with some turbo cars in the past. Aside from a Charger SRT8 I had, this is my first real dive into the V8 world. I like it some of this is out of order so bear with me. When I bought it, it was a stock blocked 302 with alum heads, shorties, catted, and basic bolt ons. Stock rear gear, terrible ebay race seats that were on their last leg, and was in need of some basic TLC. Ran well and shifted well. Body was zero rust and car had 54,000 documented miles. Factory V8 car, no cruise, no AC, roll up windows, T5, and manual locks. Rear gear was a 3.08. Soon, I added a 3.73 rear gear and really liked the added oomph. Not much after that, I added a Zex wet kit, 125shot, bottle warmer, MSD6AL2 programmable, bottle heater, and a remote bottle opener. Went through a serviced the transmission with Royal Purple, flushed the radiator, and replaced all the bushings with poly (minus the steering rack bushings) Replaced the rear upper control arms with a nice set of Steedas and replaced the lower ones with J&M non adjustable. Installed a set of Eibach sway bars, converted the rear drums to disk, wilwood proportioning valve and braided lines. Drove that around for a while and had a blast. I really loved the scoot the car had esp on the bottle. I later found a nice set of stock front seats out of a very low milage car and swapped out those. I found a place in NY that sells refurbished OEM wheels and snatched those up as well. They look amazing (for 10 holes) Over the winter I decided to supercharge it. After some thought, I decided that maybe I'd just go with more displacement. So against all good judgement I ordered a Ford racing Boss 363 stroker. Naturally, I needed supporting equipment. Edelbrock EFI intake (extrude honed by previous owner) BBK 80mm tb Anderson Power pipe 90mm maf 42lb injectors zero balance flywheel BBK shorties Custom H pipe American Thunder cat back (not pictured) SVE twin fan set up SVE programmable fan control SVE alum radiator silicon hoses Found a brand new AL driveshaft bought off a friend and re-hooked the nitrous. Though I haven't sprayed it yet. I am really happy with the motor in the car. It runs great and pulls very hard. So, that's the abbreviated tale of my 88 LX. I think it will stay this way until things start to break. I've never run it down the track or had it dynoed, but I plan on doing both of those things this year. It's just a very fun street car.
