    24lb injectors are blue
    Pro-M looks right
    130amp has the signature 2 hole, so that is right also

    Looks like fun. That interior looks great, I would put that money into making it go fast and swapping out the wheels!

    Awesome thanks!

    I fixed it thanks!

    I HATE THE RED....



    Well I took her out to the track last night... Southwestern International Raceway in Tucson, AZ. It was a great night for a Test n Tune. I got 16 runs in which is amazing. Even if I was there from 5PM to 11:30PM.

    Here is my best slip.. I think I should be fast but I just couldnt get any better at all. I started in the 16s and brought her down to a consistent mid 15.

    What do you guys think? Is there something wrong with it?

    Well I just changed the oil... WIX Filter and 5W-30 Castrol Oil Non Synthetic... She is running great with just a few things to fix..

    AC doesnt work, Transmission seems to have a slight leak, not horrible, but left a small spot on my driveway... I am picking up 7 boxes of goodies on Thursday morning!


    Here she is with my Scooter DD that I use if I dont have to go over 10 miles, and my Race Car CRX that I have now sold!


    [​IMG]



    Getting that oil changed!

    While I was under there I snapped some pictures to prove the mods are real!

    I just dropped the stang off at Chuck Hawks Performance to get the AC fixed and a leak in the transmission sorted out as well as a general inspection of all components.

    Here she is waiting...

    [​IMG]

    Then I picked up a bunch of boxes... What could be in them?!!?!

    [​IMG]

    I am still working on the headliner... Who knew it would be so hard... I also ran out of black paint. Note it takes more than 4 cans of black laquer. I am betting I will be sitting around 6-6.5 total to finish it. I ordered 4 more so I will have had a total of 8. This way I have some left over for the occasional scratch in the paint...

    Here we go... I am at a standstill until I get more paint, and then my drivers door handle and lock actuator. The handle is broken and will not open the door!

    Anyway... Headliner installed with almost all of the roof pieces, some need taken back down and painted still, but not a problem.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Relaxing and enjoying the new view of the blackness!

    [​IMG]


    Door panel. Word to the wise.. They come solid and you have to do the cutting. The only part that is difficult it the door handle.. it looks horrible to me because I can see the white stuffing.. and I cut a little too far because the hole in the plastic backing is an inch bigger then needed...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    and.......... Cleaned the carpets again.... The wind keeps blowing stupid pollen things off my tree and it was ****ing me off. While vacuuming a clean spot would get little yellow/white things on it again!

    Just purchased Edelbrock High Flow Water Pump, all gaskets, 180 thermostat, Fluidyne 3 core radiator, and Flexilite Extreme Black Magic fan... 3300 CFM of breeze to keep my pony cool i hope...

    Well I got started when they all arrived! Lots of boxes!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Pulled the Box within a box out... Looking good!

    [​IMG]


    Got her all jacked up and ready!

    [​IMG]


    Pulled the fan and radiator...

    [​IMG]



    Old pump...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Engine shot where the pump goes... I see missing gasket...

    [​IMG]


    New Edelbrock high Volume Water Pump installed!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Flex i Lite Black Magic Extreme Fan Compared to old fan... Not sure what the old one was...

    [​IMG]


    Shiny Aluminun Brackets installed

    [​IMG]


    Fluidyne Radiator! Super sexy!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Fan Installed on radiator. Fantastic fit!

    [​IMG]


    Unit Installed! I have even more clearance than before! Runs super fantastic! I had a hole in my lower hose so I replaced it with a Gates Hose and it should be good now! No leaks!

    [​IMG]


    I stay at this temperature or a tad lower while beating the snot out of the car, with the AC on full blast in 90+ degree heat! I also just parked it, left it running, and idled it for 20 + minutes and it still didnt move. That fan moves a super serious amount of air...

    [​IMG]


    I even found a buddy to park next to!

    [​IMG]




    So the results are in... This setup is off the hook. I highly recommend it to everyone!

    Well.... Spoiler... I bought some boost for the stang... I wanted it to be faster!

    I have a metric crap ton of work to do on the car right now though and sadly I dont think I will have it running in time to go to the October Mustang Meet at my local drag strip [​IMG]

    Things to do:

    Remove SMOG
    Remove Pass Header
    Weld flange back on to pass header at the H pipe connection
    re install pass header
    make sure all smog deletion is A ok and car still runs
    unpack and sort boosting stuff [​IMG] Not telling yet..
    install boosting stuff...
    find a drivers seat...-sold my front seats to buy racing seats...I got the brackets and then came upon a killer deal for my boost and couldnt resist...Also bought a welder so i am limited on funds for a seat [​IMG]
    go get car tuned!!!!!!!!!!!!! another $500 i dont have yet
