First was an intake, then catless h-pipe, then cam, headwork, headers, nitrous, then a charger. Then I ditched the charger, EFI, and 5 speed for the setup now.
The first pic is pre-paint (obviously). Second is after spraying the Ford Sonic Blue.

Also, I forgot to mention before that the front spindles, brakes, and rotors are off of a 2003 Mach 1. I had the Mach 1 rearend in the car previously, but put it in a buddy's 2004 Cobra. The current rearend is originally out of an 88 GT that I bought as a parts car.
Love the 'stang! Amazing...

If you enjoy the most boring thing ever speed related, you are going to have a blast even trying lawn mower racing

Including what I paid for the car originally, I've probably got about $10K in my Stang, and more to go. The Lightning has about $9K in it without the cost of the truck.
