    In January I pulled the motor out of my car to change the clutch, install headers, perform maintenance and just to earn the basic experience (I learned a lot).
    -Went with the ford racing clutch/pressure plate kit (slightly stronger then OEM, but basically OEM)
    -JBA ceramic shorty headers + took the time to weld up my Xpipe
    -Theromstat, motor mounts, serpentine belt, heater hoses, radiator hoses, O2 sensors, EGR tube, replaced a leaking powersteering pressure hose, p.steering fluid flush, coolant flush, oil change, engine detailed.
    -Noticed there was a hairline crack right under the theromstat housing (crappy plastic intake)
    -Replaced the intake manifold with OEM half aluminum intake, and upgraded to a 78mm BBK throttle body (while I was in there) and ordered an SCT tuner.

    Long Story Short: After being off the road for 5 + months I just finished up putting the air filter on at about 5pm today and got to go for a ride :) What a ride it was. Heres a few pics, and a picture of how she sits right now.

    definitely lol. I want to save up all the money first and do it the right way. Buy everything at once + install everything at once.
