  At 16 I made myself a 5.0 promise.....

Back in the Day; the 5.0 promise
In 1998, at 16 years old, I drove a red '89 5sp 4cyl LX,  My dad would not let me have a 5.0.  I was very attached to this car, and I promised myself at 18 I would put a 5.0 in the car one day.  But, before that day could come along...I left the car behind when I moved out of state at 17 years old.
Next level fueled by success of the swap
In 2008 it became apparent the 5.0 donor engine had seen better days, still pushing 201 hp to the wheels in an auto didn't matter if it was smoking enough to fog my windows. I had a decision to make...rebuild my original 5.0 or do a crate engine....I think back to the 5.0 swap and decide that I could do this myself...and I threw all regard to actual skills out the window and hoped for the best.
"....I stripped the block ordered nothing but the best parts and put my spirit on the line for the most risky modification yet...a complete performance rebuild..."
In July of 2009 I turned the key again for the first time....and my engine roared to life.. I was estatic...now I reflect back and realize the path I've taken over the past 11 years..it took allot of emotion and devotion to my first mustang and the 5.0 promise to make me take things to the levels I have...having no regard to my skill levels when I set my goals...I'm certainly glad love is blind.                -nb 7/28/09
When love and motivation meet
Years later in 2003 I sought out another 4 cyl mustang, I found a 93 and it happened to be red.  Slowly I restored the 4 cyl and sucessfully (in a back yard garage)  swaped to a 5.0 in 2006.
I think back and I know that at the end of the day, I'm glad I lost the car at 17....because I revisited the whole 5.0 swap idea later in life when I really had the resources to pull it off...not only that, but I had more reason to go through with it (girl or not)
