One of the most common complaints of Fox Body owners is the lack of factory cupholders. Yes, you can stuff your drink in between the e-brake and passenger seat, but why do that when LMR offers a solution? One of the newest products from 5.0Resto, the Fox Body Cup Holder Console Panel, combines OEM styling with modern upgrades. Mounting in the same location as your factory console panel and featuring OEM like textures, this cup holder console allows you to hold 2 drinks comfortably while giving you a nice interior upgrade.
One of the most popular modifications for the Fox Body Mustang is a 5 lug conversion. Not only do you get better wheel choices, you also get better braking options to upgrade the Fox Body's weak braking system. There are multiple kits to choose from ranging from basic 5 lug swaps to SN95 inspired setups. Whether you are piecing together a kit and just needing a few parts or wanting to get the whole kit in an all in one package, Late Model Restoration has you covered! We also have complete How To 5 Lug Swap A Fox Body guides to ensure you get it all installed correctly.
Getting into more of the performance mind set, Fox Body cams are always a popular modification with both the older crowd and the new crowd. With their low prices, the bang for the buck ratio is pretty high. Not only do you get the classic lumpy sound from a bigger camshaft, depending on the cam you get, the performance increases are great as well! While you may have to add a few parts to get certain cams to work, the overall installation is easy and of course, we have a How To Install A Fox Body camshaft article to guide you through the install.
To pair with camshafts, a good set of Fox Body heads can really increase the performance of your 5.0 motor. These cylinder heads upgrade your factory iron heads with lighter aluminum heads that are ported and polished for maximum performance. While there are plenty of aftermarket options that you can choose from below, you can also pick up a set of factory GT40 or GT40P heads. Lucky for you, we have a GT40 vs GT40P head guide to help steer you in the correct direction!
One of the most common "bigger" Fox Body mods is an aftermarket intake manifold. The factory manifold is usually restrictive and porting or swapping in a new aftermarket manifold increases horsepower and torque drastically compared to other mods. While they are usually paired with a camshaft and cylinder head combo, simply adding a performance intake can make a measurable difference. Some of the most popular intakes to look for are GT40s, Explorers, Cobra, Trickflow, & Edelbrock.
The easiest of modifications you can get for your Fox Body is a new set of wheels. Fox Body wheels come in either 4 lug or 5 lug depending on your setup. The best part is, you have a choice of a huge variety of factory style or aftermarket wheels in both configurations. Here at Late Model Restoration, you can get wheels by them selves or in an all in one wheel and tire kit that comes mounted and balanced for a quick and easy bolt on install.
One modification we can all agree on that you will most likely have to do to your Fox at least once in it's life is a new set of headlights. Headlights, no matter what car, have a tendency to fade, fog up, or oxidize. You can go with a set of direct replacement style headlights or go for a more customized look with one piece and LED headlights. Fox Body headlights are usually one of the first things people see on your car and a set of hazed lights not only look bad, they can be a hazard to night time driving. Late Model Restoration carries a wide variety of different Fox Body headlights to get your Mustang looking brand new!
Getting into the Fox Body suspension, you can opt for lowering springs but a good set of Fox Body coil overs will help dial in your suspension for the ultimate performance setup. Mustang coil overs have been used for many years in both the racing scene and show scene to increase suspension performance and get the perfect stance on Fox Body Mustangs. Paired with tubular k-members, they can help save some serious weight on the front of your car.
1986-1993 Mustang stock alternators suffer from small wiring and low output, and the power wire plug is prone to melt and even cause an underhood fire. Add under drive pulleys and running your accessories such as headlights, A/C or the heat and you'll likely see the lights dim and the battery gauge drop. Throw an electric cooling fan in to the mix and the stock alternator simply can't keep up. These 130 amp alternators fix these problems and are quick and easy to install!
If you are wanting to add a little bit of performance on a budget or clean up your engine bay a bit, a Fox Body cold air intake kit should be on your list. By replacing your restrictive factory intake tubing with smooth tubing and a high flow air filter allows air to travel more efficiently into your intake manifold for increased performance and gas mileage. Late Model Restoration offers a wide variety of options for your Fox Body Mustang.
Probably the first mod anyone ever does to a Fox Body is switching out the restrictive, quiet exhaust for an aftermarket exhaust system. The stock exhaust sounded decent for what it was, but the true muscle sounds really come out when you add new mufflers, a cat back exhaust, a new midpipe, or a set of aftermarket headers. You can mix and match these parts all day to get a new sound each time but we can all agree that Fox Body Mustangs always sound better with a new exhaust system!
If you have owned a standard transmission Fox Body for any extended period of time, chances are, you have had to replace a clutch or two. Clutches are a common wear item in any car and with racing comes increased wear and tear leading you to needing a new clutch and it's components. Late Model Restoration has everything you need to upgrade your clutch to handle all of the power you are adding to your Fox Body Mustang.
Last but not least, the Fox Body aluminum radiator. By now, most Fox Body Mustangs have seen a replacement radiator or two, depending on how many miles you drive. When it comes time to needing a new one, or you just want to upgrade to a better radiator, the SVE Aluminum Radiator is the go-to aftermarket radiator for the Fox Body Mustang. The large 3 row design and 100% aluminum construction increases cooling capacity and help reduce front end weight.
