I was going to, but leave it to the Army to screw up your paycheck.
My funding for that was supposed to be 2-3 weeks after separation.
I called, they said it had to get sent to the BIG pay office...so now more like May or June.
So my budget got slashed by 24k
So I figured may as well play with my 4.6 for a while, beat the everliving crap out of it, and then do my 5.4 swap
At least that gives me time to plan a better build.
I was just going to drop an ebay motor in.
But now I'll look deeper into it, maybe actually get a fresh 5.4 and fresh tranny.
Along with suspension, and other things, the only real old thing in the car will be the body and wiring.
I'd be more inclined to spend money over there, but the administration seems very reluctant to help. I have an old account from about 6 years ago and I never posted anything. It was locked after some upgrade that they did. Now, every time that I try and post anything, I get an error message. I've contacted them numerous times and nobody ever responds. Oh well... I'll just spend my money here and on SVTP. *shudder*
I've looked around here, not bashing, but not much that applies to my build.
I did get my intake from here, so I keep an eye out.
SVT has some good stuff too.
I really can't help but want to buy the COP kit. 200 shipped with brand new Motorcraft coils...hard to not just drop the dough.
I looked under my hood yesterday and thought how cluttered those Packs make things...
But that's not something anywhere near high on my list.
Bought my PI heads
almost bought shorties, but with the price on a used set of longtubes...very tempted.
Some misc interior things...
It's hard to not throw down for the 2.1 kenne bell
I had to close it. lol
found 4k in stuff I wanted
funny I know that feeling. I am registered there but never really been big on the site. Back in January I had finally figured out what supercharger I wanted to go with and it was just a matter of finding one for the price I wanted. I remember hearing that the site was good for parts/superchargers so I decided to take a look and to my amazement the exact same kit I wanted was posted for sale only a few days earlier. Dude bought it and wrecked the car prior to installing it. The only thing he had taken out to look at was the supercharger itself, everything else was still in the packages. Even came with the power pipe and I got it for $1500 less then I could find it new anywhere else.....
That is one thing I like about an old car though. Car parts are a lot more fun to buy them taking that cash and making a car payment.....
when I found my huffer kit, it was almost like god put it in my lap. It was funny as I was working on the car and my neighbor came up to check the progress and say hello. The same day I found the kit there he asked me what I was going to do under the hood and I said I really wanted a blower but couldn't find one for the price I wanted. two weeks later he stopped by to check the progress and I had to thank him as it was that conversation that made me think about it and go check.....
god I think if I heard the hiss of a cassette tape today it would drive me nuts no matter dolby b/c/what ever.... As much as I love warrant/winger and the other hair/metal bands I just don't think I could enjoy them on tape.
When I pulled my tape deck out for the last time I took the face off and used it as a dumby face to cover my alpine when I am in a bad neighborhood. Pop off the alpine face and stick the stock face in front of it and BAM no reason to break into my car for a tape deck.
Haha, yeah, nowhere near as crisp as a CD, of which I bought some cool blanks that look like old vinyl records.
But it's nice to be in a throwback.
That box holds many memories. Including an old pencil that 99% of people who see it don't get why there is a pencil in the cassette box.
As for Corral, I almost bought some suspension today, but ran off and bought a pistol instead smh lol
