    90 GT/Cobra build (Project About Damn Time)

    Well since I'm actually making progress with the build on the car I figured I'd start a build thread.. Have had this car for a little over 9 years and figured its now or never so I said lets get started... Here is a little info on the car:

    1990 Mustang GT (bought from a friend in 05' as a roller)
    Put in a 95 5.0 shortblock
    Ported some E7's and had a valve job and better springs put on
    Ported upper/lower intake
    E cam
    Knock off CAI
    Long tube headers with offroad H pipe
    5 spd with 3.73's


    Plans have changed throughout the years with different ideas but finally made a decision on what I wanna do... First off is a 5 lug swap with all new suspension, then a better trans, and a turbo...

    Will try to upload pics if I can figure out this stupid thing...

    Well here is a start... Lol Just sat the rear spoiler on to see what it would look like... Ended up getting a black GT hatch from Rick a few years ago so I wouldn't have to fill all the extra holes..

    Yanked out the rearend and took it to Neighbors for a full rebuild/31 spline 5 lug swap, 3.31's, welded axle tubes, bottom brace, and a LPW girdle..

    Picked up a M-2300-K 11" rear disc brake kit from a guy who put them on and wrecked his car shortly after

    Also while I had the rear out I installed/welded upper and lower torque box reinforcements..

    Been a while since I posted an update haven't had a whole lot of time to work on the car with deer season but have been accumulating parts.. Want to try and get the car running and driving before TX2K to cruise out there is alot of work to be done in order for that to happen...Today is starting off with another garage clean up so I can get around without tripping over everything and then start working on pulling the motor/trans to install a forged piston shortblock, swap over stock heads since i don't want to ruin the Z304 heads when motor goes, put on new FRPP billet flywheel and Ram HD clutch and tremec 3550 and do a little engine bay cleanup while motor is out...

    Also dropped off turbine housing wednesday to Scott to get coated before turbo install..

    is that a 93 cobra booster?
    If so, I strongly suggest that you spray a few coats of paint before installing. Mine is already rusted looking and it pisses me the F off every time I pop the hood. LOL
    If you need a hand with anything let me know, I like to drink other's beer.

    Thanks for the offer!! I forgot i have a 95 booster thats already painted since Im running cobra brakes...Just got the oil pan and timing cover off the shortblock I got from ya.. gonna put on a new oil pump and ARP oil pump shaft and a pan already tapped for turbo drain, and tryin to decide if I wanna put on a main girdle and change rod bolts since I have some ARP sitting on the shelf or just run it the way it is since it's a stock block..
