i'm running into problems with the stang. unfortunately, it is running on 7 cylinders, and i'm a broke kid working every hour thrown at me. cars got 206,000 miles or so on it. talking about rebuilding the motor. unfortunately i can't afford to do it the way i want. so it would be just rebuilt bottom end, maybe ported stock heads, maybe stock cam, and 93 cobra intake for now. i also need to put in a new fuel pump, new power steering pump. new plugs and wires, 3.73s. find out what the loud thud i hear under my car is and fix that. i'm considering taking a car loan out and just getting a lightning. since i dont have the time to work on the stang since i'm working trying to save up enough to fix it. i posted this in talk, because i just want opinions on this. i'm scared to put together the motor and just have the stock horsepower rating, and be very pissed off with the car. i'm sure it'll have a little bit more pep then stock, but what i wanna know is it going to be like wow. noticeable? i don't wanna spend a grand or so rebuilding it and only be able to run 15s.
