I bought this car in October as a regular 4 cylinder Automatic LX Hatch. Swapped in a 5.0 this year and converted it to manual. My cars name comes from my favorite character of my favorite tv show, and has been the name of every black car I've had.
She was bought for 800 bucks with 136,000 miles on her. The 5.0 engine that was swapped out of a 1990 GT has 84,000 miles. Engine and tranny cost was 800 bucks and the rear cost around 300 bucks. Nothing was bought new. Meant to be more of a "Go" than "Show" Kind of Car.
LX Trim - 2.3 liter 4 cylinder shared with Ford Escort
Dyno-ed at 66hp, 90lb ft. 0-60 in 19 sec. 1/4 mile 20.340 at 64.1 mph
5.0 Trim - 5.0 liter V8. Swap was taken out of a 1990 Mustang GT.
Estimated 230hp, 300lb ft. 0-60 in 6.4 sec.
Gears are 3.73 on a 9in posi rear out of the same vehicle.
Being the LX Hatch is the second lightest Mustang at around 2700 pounds, I'm looking for 13's with the power I'm putting down now
Came with and still has:
That little map light thing still works too. Only Fox I've been in that still has one in working order
5.0 motor swap
