What do you guys think??

i have a 1995 v6 mustang which i have been working on lately. Someone has offered me a 2.3l 1993 mustang lx hatchback, which is black and the body is nearly flawless and in great shape. they are asking $800. I was thinking about taking it and making payments on it and having it as a project car. Maybe drop a 5.0 in there, all that jazz. thing is all the money paying this thing off will probably draw away from the time i spend on my v6. what u guys think i should do? you guys think its a good deal?

VROOOOOOOMMM!!!

As far as I can see that's a damn good deal.

By the butt dyno, my 2.3L felt quicker than the last 3.8L car I drove. Both were automatic 'verts. I'm probably the only person who thinks this, but I think the 2.3 car has more potential. Especially if you do a turbo swap.

Function > Form, always

my 2.3 vert turbo is quick as hell and fast and emabarasses alot of V8's but i do think the 2.3's tend to be quicker because they are lighter than the 3.8, but do the 5.0 if you want, most popular swap in the world but the 2.3's are making serious power
