General Information

Mustang LX 2.3L
I am in the progress of making changes. I bought the Mustang for $1300 in Sept 09. The exterior is in decent shape, no rust and graphics that in my opinion need changed. I am estimating the mileage to be in the neighbor hood of 152,000 miles on a 2.3L 4cyl EFI. I have tossed around the idea of upgrading the engine, but have decided to keep the 4cyl in it. I am currently getting 29+ miles per gallon and to increase the horsepower is not a priority at this time. So, I plan on purchasing a new 2.3L crate engine and start to replace the exterior engine components and accessories, to include, a new automatic transmission. I would however like to increase the horsepower on that by adding cold air induction, and small fuel efficient upgrades.

The exterior, I would like to replace the hood with a fiberglass dual induction 1 1/2 to 2 in lift with a 7-8in opening. The rear trunk lid has a rack on it, so I will replace the lid with a fiberglass one as well. Possibly, place a ground effects kit with fog lamps to change the look, but remain functional. Also, repaint the vehicle between two or three colors, black with silver racing stripes; silver with black racing stripes; or plain black.

The interior will need a color change, black is my choice with brushed aliminum accents and new gauges. I would also like to change the seats to a new sports bucket.

The rims, upgrade them to 17X8 4 lug. Tint the windows, and upgrade the stereo/navigation system.

A long wish list, but in time this daily driver will have a reliable and comfortable vehicle.
