I read in here that the car is based on the fox body chassis. So does that mean that mustang springs, big brakes, wheels, etc will fit?
Is there somewhere I can find out the specifics of the rear end is it an 8.8 or 7.5? how many axle splines etc.
Can The TBI be converted to 89-up mustang MAF MPFI? How much splicing is required or would it be just an engine harness?
Thanks in advance to my questioins.
It is a Fox chassis, so most items will bolt up, not sure about how much room there is for wheels. You can convert it to EFI, not sure what you need to do exactly, try finding a wrecked Mustang to swap over the components, like the computer, the engine wiring, and everything else related. According to AllData, it's a 7.5 Diff. Could be Traction-Lok though. If there's still an ID tag, on the lower L. hand corner is the ratio. Regular diff would be displayed like this: 3.08. Traction-Lok will look like this: 3L08.
