    In my opinion, go ahead and do it. My car has aluminum heads, B-303 cam, off-road X pipe, flowmasters, panhard bar, subframe connectors, torque arm and a few other mods. Aside from the subframe connectors everything is bolt on and I have every original part except the factory air box (still looking for one). It's fantastic and I wouldn't change a thing. I track it and take it to shows. When the weather is good I take it to work once in a while or I'll take one of my kids to sports practice or a game. It feels and sounds like the race car that it is. I bought it this way and was glad to find it. It has approx 24,000 miles and still looks and smells new. I could put it back to original any time but it's too much fun the way it is. Sometimes I think about buying a wrapper car to go along with this one, but then I ask my self what I would do with it.

    I agree^

    Love your R Brian! Sounds awesome with the heads/cam set up. Are you attending the big cars and coffee on April 4th?

    Hi Tom,
    Good to hear from you. We will be in Florida for Easter, sorry I'm going to miss it. Congrats to your parents on the Mustang GT, I'm sure they're enjoying it. Hope to see you soon.

    Yes these cars are a hoot!

    1st mod suggestion, loose the front plate, even though its cool being an SVT tribute.

    My plan is to keep it the way it is other than try to put the fuel cell back.

    I love drag racing so for me probably not. But I wanted something different.
    Also I’ve only driven it about 30 miles.
    I just wanted a unique Mustang (5spd) to cruise and this car is just that.
