    Default The Glitter Bomb

    Should probably make a thread for this now since it's going to get interesting.

    Picked up this 86 Mustang GT 5spd about 3 weeks ago. Plan is to spray it this summer and turbo it for next summer. Yes I am aware of the shortcomings of the 302 and the T5 that's bolted to it.

    Did I mention it's sparkly as fuck? Someone, at some point, bombed the whole thing with a shit ton of rainbow flake clear. Like masked the windows and sprayed the body, the trim, the wiper arms, everything. It's been like this at least 10 years since that's how long the previous owner had it. No plans to change that.







    The first two weeks I spent making it less terrible. Here's what I've done so far:
    New water pump so you don't have to fill it with 8L of water every time to drive it. It PISSED water.
    New door handles so you can get into it without having to pop the hatch and pull a string attached to the inside handle.
    Adjusted throttle cable so it has 100% throttle with the pedal down instead of 30%. Actually kinda quick now.
    Set ignition timing, it was missing a couple degrees of advance. Bit more power.
    AC Delete and Airpump delete because they were whiny and annoying me. Compressor wasn't hooked up anyway.
    Welded in H pipe because I hate the sound of "true duals".
    Put on some less shitty tires. Still pretty shitty, but not potentially explode on highway shitty.
    Replace brake master cylinder, because brakes are good.
    Replaced plugs with one step colder in preparation for nitrous.

    This week I did about half of the nitrous install. Made a tube, installed a fogger in it, installed solenoids. I made a plastic plate with a conspicuous red button for spraying, wired into the fog light switch under the dash for arming.




    Taking it to a no prep strip next weekend. My guess is [email protected] aspirated and [email protected] with a 100 shot. If the tires weren't so shit it'd be easy 13s on spray. We'll see.

    Holy shit, with a list like that, you must have gotten this for practically free!

    5L mustangs, even glittered to fuck and having lots of issues, are worth their weight in gold. Really, anything rwd with a v8 nowadays is worth cash, and this car looks quite rust free.

    This is an exciting project, I'll be following along. Sentry always does fun things with his rides

    LOL the paint on this thing is totally epic! You need some rear window louvers to really set it off.

    That paint sure is thparkly!!

    Do you want to borrow some worn 275 Radial Pros? They should fit the car without issue on a 10 hole wheel. I also have a couple of 10 holes you can borrow. They currently have junk tires on them but Iím sure you can do a quick tire swap at work...if not, I could mount/balance them at my neighbors shop.

    Then you could throw all of the nitrous at it right off the line.

    Man, if he opened up the rings, I'd donate a couplr pails of leaded 116 to see how much nitrous a stock 5l can handle

    We have regularly put a 150 shot to stock 302s without any issues...window switch usually set for 3000-5000 or so. As long as you’re not greedy with timing and run good fuel, should be all good!

    Yeah Ive got jets up to 125, probably just gonna run 100 because I haven't yet encountered a car that won't take that. Also from 2000 rpm because I like to party.

    Also thanks for the offer on the 10 holes, one of my fetishes is fat tires on 10 holes, but I won't get serious about traction til it's boosted.

    But dammit, you’ll be able to dump the clutch with a shot on sticky tires!! With exhaust, gears, other minor mods along with the 150 shot, we had Foxes running 11.50s. You can’t pass that up!!

    Good call on the air pump delete. Should save a few pounds there. I had a 5.0 where the thermoactor pipe or whatever it was called that delivered the air to the back of the heads rotted out and was leaking exhaust into the cabin. Fun times!

    I'm keeping an eye on this, as I have an EFI 302 and T5 sitting around to go into a project, along with an 8.8 posi.

    May I suggest:
    https://forums.beyond.ca/threads/407...nge-Ford-Pinto

    So I had the nitrous all installed last night, opened the bottle and PSSHHT, my old ass line blew.


    Took it to work tonight and made a new line that's honestly way too nice for this car.


    Was able to retain my lovely red shag.


    It motors pretty good, feels like it'll do 100mph in the 1/4 or damn near.

    Hahah excellent, I like the round headlights better anyway, they're what I picture in my head when I think Pinto.

    Butt dyno calibration check:
    [email protected], guessed the exact ET but actually a little faster than I thought it would be. Can I bench race or what?
