Submission for #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER: ‘The Carbs Only Theme’
My 1966 Mustang with a handful of swaps. Starting with the motor, a 1994 5.0L HO, I stripped off the stock fuel injection for a Holley 4-Barrel. Long tube headers and two-chamber Flowmaster mufflers provide a bit more power and a primal soundtrack. I also pulled the C4 3-speed automatic in favor of a rebuilt T-5 5-speed from a Foxbody. The 8" open rear axle was changed out for a narrowed late model 8.8" with 3.73s and LSD, while disc brakes replaced the drums on all four corners. Racing buckets and retractable 4 point harnesses keep you in place while 4 6x9s and 2 12" subs supply some beats to accompany the V8. Pushing 300 crank horsepower and weighing in at under 2500 lbs this nearly 50 year old car was daily driven for 2 years.
However, I recently purchased another daily so I could tear into this thing again, looking for more power and tunability from a unique late model EFI setup and upgraded heads.
