    Welp, along with a long list of "wanted" mods, i get to do the "heatcore" mod. My baby gave me the "im gonna empty the radiator in your interior" warning today, so i guess its time for a new heatercore :D :banana:

    Now we are having fun!!!

    Dan...you did WAY more work than you needed to...I did mine in about 4 hours and didn't take nearly as much stuff apart as you.

    Woodster the nightmare is not just with the dash for me, it is the dog and the kids taking the tools and running off with them. I was so ****ed I took out the seats also and ended up modifying the console in the proccess.

    (This breaks my 666 post count I hope you are happy)

    Wood, after you accomplish a heater core change on an A/C equipped '87 up Fox you will be at one w/ your car like never before. And you can know for sure there is nothing you cannot do to it.

    THat's why I never changed the heater core in my TC! It's my summer car anyway, I'm now driving the tempo and it has a Sahara-like heater so it's pretty sweet.

    Well, this morning was the first day I've used it, it was about 25 outside...I had Defrost on at one notch below High and I had to turn it down because I was damn near sweating! That's the kinda heater I love :) I'm fairly sure the core on my Mustang was on the way out as the heater never really got that hot, it was usually just warm.

    I was surprised today with my heater, I never remember it working so fast! I was at my bros football game and it had to be 30 degrees, for 2 hours. I got in, cranked to full blast and was warm within minutes ... I really dont know what it was all about.
    I also love how it pulls in the (dry) winter ... much more pep!

    I may end up testing my heater this morning, I believe this area has had its first frost. I hope it works; I can't recall using it since I bought the car last winter.
