Yes that Pinto had a big inch Clevelend with a Jericho 5 speed.
My friends (Jim and John ) currently run a SS/outlaw 5.0 Mustang there best pass is a 8.10 @170 , they used to street race until the car got into the nines.
In the early ninties I had a 85 Mustang that looked all stock except for the front runners and 9" slicks and the sump hanging out of the gas tank with 2 -8 fuel lines coming out of it. That car went 10:80's back then which was respectable but definitley couldn't hang with the big boys.
My best race that I can remember was on the old on ramp from Hall rd to I94. I was racing a tubbed blue 69 Roadrunner with a 500ci motor /w Indy heads. He actually got a car out on me (14" slicks vs 9") and then I just slipped and slided (my car usually hazed the tires thru 3rd gear) past him , Man he was pissed... he felt the same way about Mustangs as I feel about the ricers !
