About me and my passion for cars

Ever since I was a kid putting posters of exotic cars on my wall I have had interest. I really didn't get into knowing cars until I was 17 when I saw a friend of the family's IROC. When I was 19 I had a coworker who had a foxbody mustang. Talking to him is when I started to learn more about cars. Since then I have had a 86 Blazer, 86 Camry, 92 mustang lx convertible 5.0, 95 mustang cobra that had aluminum heads, procharger and a lot of other goodies. After getting married I got a 02 silverado and a 94 Ford Probe(POS). Right now I am currently building a car that was put together piece by piece. It is a 1989 mustang lx with a 87' t-bird turbocoupe engine. It has a Holset HY35, front mount intercooler, t5 transmission, 65mm throttle body and other misc parts. It is my version of a SVO mustang on steroids. Her name is Thunderstang. I am currently in the process of getting a moates chip burned for 55 lb/hr injectors. This way I can bump the boost to ~ 23psi. I would really like to get a ported head and a nice roller cam by Boport and MS2 from wilson racing but unfortunately I don't have that kind of money. Maybe when tax season comes around I'll get myself a late Christmas present.

After driving the project car to work every day for the past couple years I decided to try it at the dragway. I ran a 13.94 at 103.76 mph. I was spinning real bad and it got worse as the night got colder. I guess it wasn't bad for the first time. Now I have to work on the traction issues. I feel this car is capable of high 12's with a 8.8 rear and some good tires.

I definately need an 8.8 rear and some better tires if I want to get a better time than 13.9 @t 103.76. I couldn't hook until 3rd gear!

Update on the never-ending project

So finally the engine is 97% where I'd like it to be and it ran but there's still a lot to do. The local high school car show is only a few weeks away but it isn't looking good for my car. I still have to get carpet and brakes. I still have to replace the...

Almost ready to run

Over the past year I've been debating what I was going to do with my car. It's not my daily driver so I figured I'd mod it and enter it in a local car show. I don't expect to place but at least it would be unique to say the least. I finally got the Holset...
