totaly stock they run fine, but once you start doing ANY kind of mods it is gonna get hurt.... even if you try and use a programmer... if you are going to do anything to it... go buy the ARP head bolts and replace them all.... then you are good... for the most part...LOL

Think honorably and speak honestly. What you put forth is a true reflection of you.

Owned a 90, 94, 99, and 01. Finally had to choose between mustangs and R1s when I got married. Might get another someday, I like how much more ponies they're making now than back then. I think my 90 and 94 (both 5.0s) only made like 215 hp. 01 was by far my favorite. Black with tan leather, 5 speed, Steeda cat back and shifter, K&N cold air, Mach 460 stereo.

put a 6 litre in those and a turbo and those suckers MOVE. Two of my friends with them are running 8.9 and 9.0 in them. Damn fast cars when you chuck a real motor in them

I had an aod in mine originally. Over drive went out on it @90k, rebuilt it with a few goodies, and blew it again only a few thousand miles later when the plastic bushing broke for the kick down cable. $0.07 part took care of the whole trans I've bought a TKO600 since then
