    This forum doesn't get a whole lot of activity. So I was going to see what everyone has been doing to their cars.

    This forum is a little quiet, but holds quite a bit of information on the 35th "Limited Edition" GT's specifically. Most tech related material is over on the 4.6 Forums.

    Mine has been parked for 10 months with either a spun bearing or bad timing tensioner. Getting ready to start putting together the lower mileage shortblock and do the 5 speed conversion. Putting in some bbk shorties while I am at it.

    Haven't gotten any recent pictures yet, but did some Intake, Exhaust, Suspension, and Body work this year. I'll see about sneaking out at lunch sometime soon if there's a decent day to snap some photos...

    Found a neat spot to snap a few quick pictures of the progress... Pay no mind to the un-tinted quarter windows, a casualty of the sail panel upgrade, they will be going in for a tan very soon!

    So is mine. I think I need to re torque the head bolts. I have put a few thousand on it since the rebuild

    It looks like your rear spoiler has been changed from the 35th model?

    I've done a few light mods to my dark horse ... hood struts, larger plenum and throttle body (along with everyone's favorite, a cold air intake)
    Eibach springs, struts and shocks, Mach 1 chin spoiler, sequential tail lites and ... big fat tires and chrome 5 spoke wheels

    the deafening roar and simulated radio listening ... exhaust upgrade number two
