The Formula I dumped 3k into it after the transmission and opti failed so I am probably keeping that till it dies again. I'll never get my money out of it selling it even though I am trying.

Good luck with your pony. It will bring you joy and headaches just like my turds.
I remember my LT1 days awesome! Love those fbody s

If you need to rebuild, look into LS1 or better. Can be had for 2k with trans.

I had thousands into the car. Sold it for 5k in 2006. It was a 96 z28

So far, all I've done is add an aftermarket intake, subwoofer, and a dual exhaust. My next two moves are to install race seats and remove the rear seats but I'm kind of stuck on what to do with the rearseat removal. I don't want it to look stripped so I was thinking adding carpet and a glass window maybe? Also, I've been thinking about putting a turbo on it to make it a v8 killer but I'm unsure considering the motor already has 110k. Good idea? Bad idea? Car is stick shift btw. (I sold my 10r to get it but I'll buy another really soon)
You crazy! That's all I got.

Sell it, use money to get at least 1999 GT. Mod from there. I wouldn't spend a dime on v6. Any i4 Jap will do circles around you. That dual exhaust on v6 kills power. Been through that and back on my first Camaro, which was a v6 mistake

Gluck.

My buddy had a 1999 v6 mustang we drove it around a sand pit till the engine gave up the ghost we then shot about 5,000 rounds of 5.56 into it then we stuck a wick in the gas tank. Good times.

I looked into the LS1 swap. If I had enough funds to do it right I would. For now I'm just saving my pennies to get the parts I need to do a basic LT1 rebuild on the T/A. I redid the opti, water pump, front seals, oil pan, tranny and removed the smog on the Formula and its a fun fast dependable ride now. For the most part....can't seem to get the cooling system to bleed properly and that causes some cooling issues from time to time. Otherwise its a hoot to drive!

Lots of miles. Maybe looking at a rebuild soon. Although I'd just buy a junk motor for a couple of thou and throw it in there.

I did a full swap on mine back in the day. It was originally a LT1 with Auto. I took it out, got another LT1 and put a LT4 hot cam kit before putting it back in. At the same time changed it to manual. What a project, but worked.
