One car I regret selling was a 2004 Terminator. I remember buying it one week, then doing an upper and lower pulley swap with tune for less than $1,200 the next week. Those cars were rated 390/390 I believe and that is what mine put down stock.

45 minutes later, I left the shop (Modular Madness) with something like 550/570. Over 500lbs of TQ at 2K rpm....those little Eatons were stout for what they were. The next thing was blower porting...then I said screw it and swapped on a Kenne Bell.

Me too, I appreciate many brands. I bought a new 88 Mustang GT and did the usual Edelbrock heads, cobra roller rockers, SVO headers, GT40 Intake, gears...... route and it ran very well. Never did get around to a SC for it though. Terminators were bad ass then, finally the newer ones followed the independent suspension of the T cars. Those engines were really something also.
I took a little break from perf work when had we had 2 kids and a new house. Have the Corvette now but still love hot Mustangs. Seriously Thinking about about adding a CJ 69 Mach 1 to my garage.

Nice......Out of every "Muscle car" I have ever owned, the Mustang has always had the best sound. I'm on my 5th+ Corvette, but still think the Mustang sounds better no matter what exhaust you ended up putting on it.
