        5 1989 GT - Jp85gt

        Strong little starter

        For the money there really isn’t a better starter on the market. This one is very light and easy to install. Has more than enough torque to spin a 11-1 motor with no problems. I have a few of these starters and use them on all of my builds with no problems to speak of

        5 1990 GT - RonG

        Quality Starter

        Replaced the original starter after 29 years. Overall, this was a very simple installation and I am pleased with the results. I would recommend this starter.

        5 1988 GT - NicholasB

        A Great Upgrade

        This starter is lighter and more compact than the OEM starter. It is also looks nice. It is easy to install and wire. I would have preferred the Zinc finish as pictured. It would match my Zinc finish Canton pan. The silver polished finish looks nice too. It is worth the money. This is not on a Mustang. It is on a Mustang donor Cobra Replica.
