    yeah- don't know what I am going to do yet. I have only 60k on the car and I may do some update mods and refresh the engine bay while I contemplate a motor...

    where do you people meet up at...? whenever I come to town in my mustang it was like I would drive all over town and hardly see a one....

    I hear ya. Seems like the cruising seen has been over-run by ricers and poser ricers lol. I have heard on QCAAF.com that some muscle car guys meet up at Hobby Lobby in Davenport but have never drove over there to check it out. I remember the good ol' days about 5 years ago when the Avenue in Moline was full of nothing but Stangs, and Camaros. Now the cops patrol way to much and pull anyone over who looks like they are cruising.

    I have never used the dyno at Stealy's just order some edelbrock shocks through there for my Explorer. Great customer service. I have heard good things about the dyno on QCAAF.com though.

    What about the dyno on the way to Cordova on the right side of the road heading north from 80? Has anyone been there? Does anyone know what type of dyno it is or whether it is a load bearing or not?

    Well I have never heard anything bad about that Dyno. The best site to check on that would be QCAAF.com. I believe that there is a thread on that site about the dyno's in the Quad Cities.

    Welcome to the site man. First thing I would do since it is a 95GT I would replace the computer so that you can actually mod that thing. I have been told by some of my friends who are mechanics is that the computer really restricts any major mods to the SN95 5.0's. Since you are new in the area and looking for other stangers another great site to go to is QCAAF.com. They meet in different areas every weekend and is a great way to meet new people. By the way my name is Kurt.

    I'll be at cordova sept 1st also for the midnight portion. I won't have my Mustang there, but I'll still be racing. Keep an eye out for a maroon Omni, you'll find me, or a good friend of mine with an 89 GT Blue/Silver.

    On another note, I trapped 103mph with the old 4 banger this weekend. I'm going to try to pickup another 3-5 mph over the next week.

    Damn congratulations I am still sitting on the same modded stang that I have had for the last 2 years. Still waiting for my friends to get around to helping me install the new intake then the new exhaust. Right now I am too scared to tear it apart since my dd is a pos Tempo lol. Got a baby due any day now also so can't really afford to tear it apart like I would like.
