    OMG, this thread is the bomb! I can't believe I never read it... till now. That is amazing what you did. When I seen the rust on the first page, I almost s***. How the hell did you even drive it with that big ass hole in the floor? Lol.. man, thank god I don't live in Michigan any more. Road salt really eats everything alive. Suddenly, that rust hole in my trunk don't seem so bad ... lol

    But now, you go and turned that thing from POS rustbucket into prized work of art! WOW.. is all I can say. I would not of had the motivation to do all the work you did. I can't imagine how much you spent on all those parts, seats etc. Very nice job... and NICE paint. I love that color. Kudos to your gf helping out. Where can I find a chick that likes stangs.. and ALSO likes working on them? :drool:

    Thought we were gonna fire her last night til the wiring gremlins decided to fork around, my worst nightmare. Got an awesome tranny on the way too.

    Close but this will take a while to sort out, I'm afraid.

    O.K.

    Thanks, yea the gf:rlaugh: being into the whole thing is a plus, this is actually her car.


    O.k. the good news is we are off jackstands, bad news is the wiring issue. The camera screwed up so I have no pics of the stance, but it is everything I dreamed and more, totally slammed. try for some stance pics tommorow, for now here ya go.

    There are no vents. I have the same Boss hood. It actually has an opening at the back. From their ad:

    "Boss hoods maximize airflow and structural strength by moving the rear portion of the framework 1"away from the firewall. This allows airflow across the entire rear section of the cowl for maximum cooling. Race testing has proven that this design will keep your inlet temp within 5 degrees of the ambient air temperature. This gives you a denser air charge for more power!"

    I think it was a crack on it being a 4 eye, not a 87-93 car. S&B no likie the 4 eye.

    Been so busy dealing with issues, haven't had time for this. Turns out my XPI timing lock box was faulty, took out all the senders, the TFI and the stator,not fun. The stock computer does not like the 60# injectors, as it puts the car into a flooded condition on start-up. The only person willing to help me with a start-up chip was JLP, and it worked to start the car but then the air/fuel went to crap on idle, without the chip the air/fuel is perfect but the car is very difficult to start in the flooded condition, so we are still dealing with that. He is going to change somthing. Might have to resort to a PMS or somthing similar. Did drive the thing in and out of the garage to test the tranny, the exhaust sounds amazing. Here are a few shots from outside in natural light, and of the tranny, got new front tires and the stance is amazing, will get some shots of it soon.
    Thanks everyone for following along through this whole thing.

    I love what you did with the ignition, how it comes out of the strut tower. Simply amazing man. To have a car look half as good as that would be a treat. :)
