1988 Mustang LX 5.0 HO manual coupe all stock original w/ exception of K&N air filter, Magnaflow dual exhaust and a red paint job from the original burgundy red.
Currently looking for a good battery I am thinking of optima 75/35? but need to know if I have to upgrade any wiring etc? or if there is a better model or battery out there?.

The red top Optima are not all they are cracked up to be.  You pay a lot of money for a name.   I have been running with Interstate batteries for many years now and have received great service from them.  I think I have had the Interstate in my 65 for around 15 years now, and it is still strong.  Whenever I store the car for more than a month, I use a small trickle charger to keep the battery fresh.  Whenever the battery reaches optimum charge, the charger shuts off.  They are expensive, but welll worth the money in battery savings.

He told me he was done havong fun and he held it for me! it almost sold but he told the guy he was waiting for my responce I had a cheaque ready that night.
I will check out the interstate batteries though thanks for the help folks!,
I love the ricer jokes that stang owners make up, I do plane on buying myself a "IMPORT KILLER" decal for the back and maybe a licence plate cover that reads my car is made with wrenches not chop sticks HA HA.
