Top 5 Fox Body Restoration Kits You Need Before Spring

Fox Body MustangReady For Spring Tune-up

With Spring on its way and hundreds of new Fox Body products in out lineup we thought it would be a great time to roll out a lineup of new kits conveniently packaged together to meet all of your project and restoration needs. These kits will save you time and some cash by purchasing as a package and are filled with OEM quality parts built to exact factory specifications. Here’s our top 5 1979-1993 Mustang combo kits you’ll want to pick up before Springtime.

#5 – Mishimoto Performance Radiator and Silicone Hose Kit (5.0L, Manual & Automatic Transmissions)Foxbody Mustang Radiator & Cooling Restoration Kit

A lot of 5.0 Foxbody Mustangs run into cooling issues from time to time and anyone who’s been stuck in rush hour traffic with an overheating car knows how much this can suck. We packaged two of the most popular cooling items together and gave everyone a one-stop option for fixing any Foxbody overheating issues. After installing this cooling kit you will no longer have to worry about racing around road courses, track days and gridlocked traffic in the dead of summer. Mishimoto radiators are backed by an industry leading “No Questions Asked” lifetime limited warranty. They’ll even replace radiators damaged in a car accident, a product endorsing move seldom seen in the automotive industry these days.

If you’re unsure whether it’s the radiator or piping causing these cooling issues you can go off the old test: If the needle hits red while driving or cruising around it’s more likely a radiator problem – if cooling issues are only at idle you might want to check the fan first. Also, it’s always a good idea to replace the thermostat in your Foxbody when changing cooling hoses and your radiator.

Mishimoto Cooling Kit includes:

  • (1) Aluminum Radiator
  • (1) Radiator Cap
  • (1) Magnetic Drain Plug
  • (2) Large radiator hoses
  • (4) Small radiator hoses
