I have a Build thread over at supraforums, but thaught I would post it up here as well.
Hello guys. As I don't post many build threads I will start off with my apologies as to the poor quality of this build thread. So please bear with me :gapteeth:
History: After the years of owning supra's (mk2,mk3 and mk4) and modifying them to various HP levels then getting into drag racing with my old mid 9 second Sc300. I decided to change it up a bit and put the beloved 2jz into a Mustang. Since my days in the military, I have always loved the fox body and the coupe in particular. I picked up a 1989 Coupe about 8 hours away from my home and after purchasing, drove it all the way back home. The v8 was underpowered but got surprisingly good gas mileage (28mpg) on the highway.
The car was pretty much stock apart from a pair of flowmaster mufflers and a 5 lug conversion. After daily driving the car for a few months one day after work a piece of metal decided to lodge itself in the oil pump causing the distributor oil pump drive shaft to twist and snap. Once I seen that there was no oil pressure, I decided to drive it into my work and put a manual gauge on it to verify there was indeed no oil pressure. Sure enough there was none.
Without hesitation and desire to fix the old tired 5.0, 4 hours later the motor and trans were out. Car sat in front of my home for almost 2 years as I had no time to work on it as I was building/tuning other friends cars. Fast forward to 3 months or so ago, I finally blocked out 2 months in my schedule to work on my own stuff.
Anyhow onto the pictures. Here she is sitting in front of my home.
New heater core and firewall holes filled in where a/c comes through and a few small other holes. All prepped for paint.
