I loved riding around in my couger on the street with nothing but a four barrel, headers, and an rv cam, and I thought it was fast. So did the cops who wrote me all those tickets. Don't all y'all remember what happened in the early 90's. These kids were getting a hold of the 87 and up GT mustangs and with a little work were waxing our muscle car butts. Heck these new stangs run 8 flat or better in the 1/8 bone stock. That is why we stroke and poke the C. These old heavy cars need all the help they can get. As for putting it to the ground, just takes a little bit more cash and that same money will make it safer to drive also. Places like Agent 47 sell or will build you what ever you want if it's road corse you like. If you like to follow leave it stock but if you want to lead these days you better get with the program.
