Corey Smith's 88 Mustang GT

1988 Ford Mustang GT

My wife found me this mustang about 5 years ago,just after out first child was born.Bought it just as it looks on the outside for the most part,but much has changed thoughout the rest of the car since I took ownership.It was born with an automatic that was basically toast from the get go.Plans were made for a 5 speed swap (T5Z),and made about a year later,just after my second child was born.Was fun to drive but needed more,soon the 8.8 was totally rebuilt and 3.73's found there way in also.I slowly brought back the interior of the car to fully functional stock with only minor upgrades,an OEM 160 speedo,1993 mustang OEM cd player with intergrated IPOD input (which I install),and fuel pressure,boost gauges.Brakes were slightly upgraded with hawk front pads,baer drilled rotors,and maximum motorsports caliper pins.Maxiumum motorsports camber plates with 1.5" lowering springs were added to the suspension.The engine was just recently replaced with a completely rebuilt unit that took over a year to complete and install(kids),with the following mods.

Car in a blast to drive and a dyno tune is in the near future.Love watching people's head's turn when they hear the A-trim at idle.I have been told all kinds of thing,from "I think you have a bad alternator" to "sounds like a pissed off car" under there.My youngest child loves going for rides and her favorite quote is "daddy,go fast".Brings a smile to my face as much as the car does.All the work was done by my self,since I am a certified Ford technician of 15 years.
