    So I finally decided to stop being lazy and compile all my stuff into one thread.






    This is what my car looked like when I bought it. This was the moment I handed over the cash.

    Damn that ride is low! I like it! One of the nicest Mach1's I've seen. Really like the Raptor shift light being above the gauges...have a write up of how you did it? I think there's one in Tech and How To but the light is mounted behind the a/c vent.

    I really just followed the instructions and plugged everything in where it said to plug it in. lol

    only difference is I started by deciding on a location, I liked that spot because I'm OCD and I could have it off center.. I pulled the bezel off, dropped the cord down behind the gauge, put the bezel back in place, I used velro, but now it's bolted in. then I used a coat hanger to pull the other end of the cable through my dash. Did you know there is like an arm sized hole that runs through your dash from footwell to footwell? then I pulled the passanger carpet up (easy when he kick panel is out already) and layed the wire along the edges to it didnt show through the carpet.

    So how is that irs catback holding up? I'm thinking about doing that on my gt but with spintech pro shoot out mufflers. Just a bit worried about the axle hitting it when I'm driving.

    Nice build!!

    I just got the same clutch. How do you like it?

    I also have the same mac long tubes, how bad was the clutch install and did the LT get in the way a lot?

    It sits about three or four inches below the axle, I love it.

    I like it, very smooth, bites really well. just make sure you use an OEM TOB and pilot bearing.. I used ford racing and regret it.

    getting the tranny out wasn't to bad, just takes alot of wiggling and twisting and it slips out. for some reason it literally goes right back in, but getting it out takes an act of god.. I dunno.



    It's a blast! I love being able to spin in every gear.

    I deployed a few days after I made this thread, and I'm still in country for another couple months.
