Foxfive's 1992 GT Street/Strip Build
I am trying to figure out this whole Photobucket thing. So here we go. I have owned my 1992 GT for about two years. I originally wanted a notchback but I was able to get a clean two owner GT. I traded a 79 Camaro I had for it straight up. The GT is from West Virginia 87k at the time, and I was impressed with how clean it was. The paint has some imperfections(bad prep job) but the car is STRAIGHT with no dings, dents, or body work. Each panel still has the VIN sticker on it, white stamp is still on the valve covers, and the rear end axle still had the original paper sticker on it. My brother is a professional custom painter and body man so I knew what to look for. The only mods it had were a CAI, Subframe connectors, Pulleys, and a Flowmaster catback exhaust. All the cats were in place, all the smog, ac etc. Since I have owned the car I did stainless shorty headers, BBK catless hpipe, ac delete(ford racing), MSD ignition parts, throttlebody spacer(I know some say they suck, but I did notice some better response), Hurst short throw, aluminum radiator, hp waterpump, and thermostat, 17x9 2003 Cobras and tires. I took the car to the track in July, first time dragging, and it ran a best of 14.7 at 95. This was with a 2.3 60 and a lot of trouble hooking up. I was also running stock 2.73's/street tires. Anyway I'm hooked on the racing and the car. So here we go. I'm currently in the process of putting in Wild Rides Battle Boxes, and UPR upper/lower control arms. I am going to have my mechanic put in 3.55's which I recently purchased, as well as Moser axles. This is all in preparation to run slicks at the track next year. I'm looking to be in the 13's next year, hopefully this will help.
I will post photos and explainations as this build progesses. Thanks for looking.
