Inspiration

I ran across this the other day and thought it was one of the nicer Fox Mustang builds I've seen. There are several articles on the car.

Hey Mike, he's not the only one doing this. I will post some links to some other projects tonight.

Read a great article in HotRod recently on that first one. Haven't heard any Ugly Horse updates since this spring.

Last I heard from the ugly horse is that he is looking into how to get an aftermarket computer system built... Hope he gets it figured out.

Real cars don't spin the front tires... THEY LIFT THEM!!!

Project Ugly Horse Part XI.V: I’m putting a Miata transmission in my Mustang - Road & Track.

It's an immense amount of work to pull something like this off, even if you do have some resources available to you. Odd that he chose not to use the stock ECU for this project. Maybe R/T will do a road test of the Ugly horse when it's done.

I had mentioned in my earlier post, that I had come across other ECO-boost Mustang swaps. i should have bookmarked those, cause I have tried to find those again, but have come up short. One is an SN95 and the other an SVO?
