My New 1985 Mustang Gt 5.0 (Need Help) lots of it....

Soaring:
I'm not too familiar with the '85 5.0 engine, so I'll let some of the other guys help you make a hotrod out of it.  In the meantime, google "Crate Engines" to see what one would cost you in that power range.

gears are probably the first place to start. of course heads, cam and an intake would be a good also. i would check out any junkyards in your area and look for some explorer, expedition or trucks with a 351 in them and see what you can get off them.

Soaring:
OK, Duhhhh!  Now I remember that it wasn't until 1988 that the Windsor engines got rid of the carbs.  Get some AFR 165 heads, or steal some GT 40 heads from a junk yard.  put on a Weiand intake manifold and a decent 4 barrel carb.  Follow that up with a mild cam and some decent headers.  Follow that up with 2 1/2" pipes with an X pipe and some 40 series Flowmaster mufflers.  Gears should be 355's for around town, and 410's for the strip. 

zebo87:
sounds like a great start
