Below is what I own, my ride, and soon to be My Pride!:

1996 GL-Sport, New-sed 2.0ltr (64k on boneyard motor), 5-speed. Mods:

1) Fidanza flywheel 2) Dmitri's SVT E0 alloy wheels and 205/55R-15 Dunlop SPs 3) Tru-bendz custom 2.5in Magnaflow exhaust on, it sounds throaty 4) Slotted and drilled front rotors, Hawk pads 5) K&N drop-in air filter 6) STILL BOXED: BernardoB's CTA intake..., soon to replace #5 7) STILL BOXED: HectikHector's Diablo chip (might need a Diablo Power Programmer?). 8) STILL BOXED: 65mm throttle body, upgrade T/B for Mustang 4.6L

Next phase (to be purchased within 6 months):

FRPP 9mm spark plug wires, Bosch 4+ (quad electrode) plugs Steel-braided brake-lines Buttonpuncher's front strut brace Rear sway-bar (either BAT or Addco) Spring/struts (will the $700 Koni kit for 98-00s fit my 96???)


BAT "Big rotor kit" for the fronts, rear drums have never faded... U/D crank pulley (which one: FRPP, Esslinger, or MAC???) FRPP ZX3 Aluminum intake manifold FRPP ZX3 Cylinder head FRPP Stage 1 camshafts
