Ford Thunderbird 5.8/351 exhaust

Just finished up 351 swap earlier in the week, converted to MAF and she runs pretty sweet...I still have a lot of work ahead to optimize the combination...very nice drivability so far.

1983 T Bird-351 cid, Crane Cam, Ford motorsport headers with glasspacks
5.8, 351, AOD, 3:73 posi rear end. Motorsport radiator and Exhaust dumps, quad shock rear end. This was my daughters first time with the camcorder so I guess I am lucky that the car is it in. The car seems to be really loud in the video but there is an echo between the two buildings,

1988 ford thunderbird
My father's hotrods are 60s muscle cars, but I look at it as this was when he was in school. Well in 1988 I was 12 and this was a hot car on the Nascar track being a fan of course. And lets not forget 2 more things yesteryears cars were way over budget and how many more Mustang do you want to look at. This is my 4th bird I had an 87sport, 92sport, 88turbo, and this being my final one a sport coupe w/ a turbo coupe nose on it the plastic surgery has just begun. The car drives great and I am in no rush to get it done speaking of its 2012 and most those pics are 5-8 years ago. By the time my son can drive the car will be 35 years old that's equivalent to me driving to H.S in a 55 Chevy. But there's no way he will be driving it at that age at least w/out me. The car has many other mods done to it. There is plenty of 83-88 Cougar and Thunderbird enthusiast at foxtbirdcougarforums.com
