go with the mods outlined in Tech Article: "Ford OD
Transmissions 101", 80mm GT 'Stang MAF and Dennis Chip - there's plenty more to do, but those mods will get you started and you
should be able to make some tire noise.

Good luck with the mods,

A Mark VIII/Mustang GT TC and 3.73 gears with a reprogrammed chip from Dennis to alter the shiftpoints would help a lot too, along with a Mustang GT MAF.

Pour a little motor oil under each tire ... that'll give ya a nice, smoky burnout. But it's not very practical.

Don't forget the under drive pulleys. Get Steeda Pulleys.

I agree with MagerThom. Do the tranny mod listed there and you will be chirping tires everytime your foot touches the gas. Also check out a chip from Dennis. After that Gears would help but they are also expensive.
