right now its pretty much a stock 95 xlt 2.3l 4cyl 5 speed. i have a flowmaster exhaust system and a custom made "by me" open air intake other than that its just stock for now. i want to do some little upgrades for now to the horsepower but not sure what all i can do without spending hella money.

How did you like the Acuras? I'm planning on get a 2007-08 TL Type S for my wife. They're getting hard to find. I've owned an AMC Spirit (not sure of the year) for about three days before my buddy wrapped the piece of s*** around a pole...thanks Arn! :) Then...an '81 Chevy Monte Carlo, '87 Pontiac Firebird, '78 Ford F150 4x4 Lariat short bed (loved that truck), '80 Mercury Monarch, '92 Pontiac Grand Am, '68 Olds Cutlass, '95 Ford Windstar, '95 Ford Taurus. Now I have an '01 Chevy Impala, '97 Honda Accord Sedan, 2000 Honda Accord Coupe, 2006 Ford Ranger XL 3.0 2wd, AND 2008 Ford Mustang GT (my baby!!). I guess that's what this post is for? Ha!

lol, damn if u still had all those cars u could start up ur own dealership lol. i loved my teggys their easy to fix and upgrade and not to mention cheaper than most. and since there is so damn many of them finding parts is easy. i was about to buy a 94 acura vigor with stock turbo before i came across my ranger. the tl is the new version of the vigor and the legend. they are quick and have the luxery add ons to go with it which makes it a great car not to mention they look f#%king damn good when fixed up.....

Yeah right! I have 5 cars and only a 1 car garage right now. The Mustang keeps that full. I only drive it on nice days. Black was a bad choice because it's so damn hard to keep clean! But when it is clean no other color beats it. My friends and family bust my ***** and tell me I need to get fleet insurance and open a dealership.

Rofl! Sounds like my house lol. My dad ACTUALLY bought an empty lot around the corner from the house so we had a place to put the extra vehicles and trailers.
My brother has a secret storage area in our garage where he puts his Lightning. Its a 3 car garage to look at, but theres a door you wouldnt see unles you were looking for it making it a 4 car garage lol. Kinda hard to explain
