    Finally got around to picking up a 65mm EGR spacer to match the 65mm t/b. Was having a little bit of a stumbling issue...thought maybe this was it. Had also found a leak in the gasket (between intake and EGR spacer)

    Car looks good.

    I really have to get tires on my polished cobra wheels. They've been sitting in my closet for 6 years :(

    Well boys and girls, I haven't made an update in forever, and this one is a whopper. For those of you who even remember me and my ****box coupe and who have followed this thread thought I would share in a really big moment.

    So this is the way the car looked before all this:

    I realized a long time ago that you can only get so "unique" with a mustang without going way off the deep end. Though it really works a nerve when somebody else's car looks exactly like your own, it's hard to completely avoid it. :shrug:

    It's also why I looked for a 4 eye. I always liked them but it's a little more "unique" also. I really really like blue fox bodies:nice:

    Well been awhile since I've done an update. So here's a small one:

    So the SVE radiator that I put in, ended up being defective. Not once but TWICE. Both radiator's were leaking coolant where the fins are welded up against the caps.
    Thankfully LRS stepped up to the plate after some vocal displeasure, and refusing to receive yet a 3rd radiator sent me a Fluidyne radiator. No problems so far :) Well about
    the same time, my Taurus fan **** the bed, so I ordered a proflow also from LRS. Install went perfect (other than some shimming washer's to square it up)


    On to the pics:

    Which also allows you to run the stock overflow (taurus I didn't have one)

    So one of the things that I wasn't happy about, when the car went to the body shop, my door panels got this black goop **** on them.
    Well unfortunately, my car is from Canada and the door panels ( I have yet to find another set) are unique...black strip above the speaker
    grill. So they were pretty much ruined. Next best thing was a set on craigslist being sold local. Kinda like not having map pockets *rolls eyes* :p
