First off I've enjoyed this board quite a bit. I don't post often but have been on here since end of last year when I bought my 16 gt premium. I've had fox bodies all my life and started with a 90 gt 5.0 when I was 16 and have owned at least one 5.0 fox all my life since then. Even after breaking my back in 04 and being paralyzed from the waist down since then I haven't let it slow me down or stop me from having a fun car to play with. Finally decided to upgrade to the new body.

On to the new car. I've loved this thing so far, even when it was stock. So far I've done a Lund Flex tune, Bob's ultimate catch can, BMR drag lowering springs, Viking crusaders in the rear, redline hood struts, custom cat back of bullet race mufflers and xpipe, steeda jacking rails. BMR cradle lockout kit and DS safety loop and race star 17x9.5 and 17x4.5 are on the way.

Mostly looking for a good fun street/strip car as I only really drive it when it's nice out and I plan on going to play somewhere. Luckily I have access to a full shop at all time thanks to my cousin owning his own, and the fact that I help run it anytime I can so it makes things much easier.

Finally took the time to do my grill delete, and get with my photographer buddy.

So far I love them, plenty of adjustability, and ride quite a bit better than stock shocks. Hit up [MENTION=10926]beefcake[/MENTION] if you decide to get a set. He has helped me out with those along with other parts for the build.

Nice ride.

Auto or manual? Perhaps I missed it.

What rear tire you running?

I have been thinking about a grabbing a dragstrip setup.

Great to hear! They're definitely on the to-do list. I might have missed it, but what is your best ET to date?

I have yet to make it to the track since doing suspension, wheels and Tires. On the 20's and stock springs/shocks went 8.0 at 90 in the 1/8. Before Lund e85 flex tune went 8.2 in the 1/8th and 12.7 at 110 in the 1/4. Plan on running true street at nmra finals at and of the month so I'll have updated times soon.

I'm a little behind on posting since NMRA finals in bowling green. Ended up 3rd in the 12.0 index with an average of 12.04 getting beat out by a 12.01 and a 12.02. Below is best pass of the night, and keep in mind im tune only stock airbox intake headers and only a catback with tires and some suspension. Converter is next on the list not being able to 60' with stock one kinda blows but overall pretty happy with results. Big thanks to Lund and [MENTION=10926]beefcake[/MENTION] for parts and tune and my local shop for getting me ready in time.

Finally got some updates done. Ordered and installed shaft masters alum ds, and BMR spherical vertical links. Also picked up the below goodness for a killer deal. Still waiting on my OPG, Crank sprocket, and Circle D converter to show up before starting on getting it all installed.
