If you’re ever cruising around the streets of central Jersey, chances are you have probably have seen Jennifer Awad in her jet black 1990 Mustang GT. Or, perhaps, you have seen her selflessly volunteering at the Sayerville, New Jersey Fire Department (now retired).

You can never miss the distinct look of the Weld Drag Lites to the Cervini’s cowl hood and the classic mustang sound from the BBK off-road H pipe flowing through a 2 ½ inch exhaust provided by Pypes Performance Exhaust.

Under the hood, Jennifer tells us the 302 has been turned into a 347ci stroker assembly, SCAT bottom end, forged pistons, with Trick Flow Twisted Wedge aluminum heads. The top half of the engine includes a high out-put cobra intake, 42lb injectors, and the air mixture flows through an Accufab 70 mm throttle-body. All that power is transferred through a beefed up AOD transmission, a 3,200-stall speed converter and B&M shift kit.

Jen redid the entire suspension, including the torque boxes to frame connectors, to keep the street/strip reliability of the car. Upper and lower control arms from UMI Performance were added to complement the Strange Engineering shocks on all four corners. Out back is a 4:10 gears with Moser 31 spline axles.

To date, her best times have been a 12.4 at 107 mph, and that’s driving it to the track. This mother of two has big plans for “Raven,” which may include either a supercharged or turbo combination in the near future. Even so, the Raven will always remain a street driven machine!
