You have seen me write about plenty of LMR.com Mustang project cars through the years. This time around, I wanted to cover my own project car for you guys to follow. I want to welcome you all to my personal Triple Black Fox Body Mustang project. No crazy names or any of that silly stuff. Just a grass roots Fox Body Restoration project. I plan to have plenty of how to guides and I’m sure I can talk Landan into doing a few videos to help you with your own resto project.
Here is a little background on the car. It is a 1990 Mustang GT Convertible. Yes, this was a Craigslist find. We found this poor Fox Body Mustang sitting out in a field in Central Texas. After some money was exchanged, she was quickly brought back to LMR headquarters for some TLC.

Below you will find a full video series about using these major components to build you own SVE power plant in your Fox Body Mustang. Be sure to stick around as we show you what accessories, ignition and exhaust we go with on this project. Once it is all together, you can rest assured we will be sure to get you some solid dyno numbers.
SVE Longblock Build Building an engine is often thought to be, an “Act of Congress” to any of us that have never really put our minds together to build one. Fortunately for all of you, we decided to throw one of our 5.0Resto Economy Short Blocks on an engine stand and get to work. Several of us shot ideas back and f... more
