    2003 Termi, Got it this weekend, great deal too for a 1 owner car. This older dude bought it back in Nov 02 with 26 miles on it and passed away last November. His wife sold it to me this weekend because she needed money. The car is mostly stock except for a K&N intake, Spec stage 3 clutch, MM firewall clutch cable adjuster, MM quadrant and drilled/slotted rotors. Haven't had a chance to wash it all up yet, gonna get it smogged first, but I'm pretty happy with it right now! Getting the exhaust done this week, replacing some IRS bushings, short shifter, lowering it and getting a style bar. Then I'll move on to some HP mods. It's also getting a fresh black paint job to take care of the paint chips on the hood and the clear coat damage from the California sun.

    Thanks! So far, it's a blast to drive. It has a couple issues, nothing big. It needs the IRS carrier bushings - they should be here tomorrow. I also have a misfiring #6 coil. Interesting find last night - I was replacing the spark plugs and the driver's side had all new plugs and the passenger side had never been opened. The #6 coil wasn't a motorcraft coil either. The number 8 plug was also hand tight, I literally unscrewed it without a ratchet. I replaced the #6 coil, but the problem came back. The replacement also happened to not be a motorcraft coil, it was a leftover from my Mark viii engine. I'm going to slap in a motorcraft coil and see if that fixes the problem, but it's only at idle. Can't feel it while accelerating or cruising, but it's enough that it is throwing a code for it.

    Thanks brother! Just got the exhaust done today, sounds amazing! Still getting an intermittent miss on number #6 cylinder though. Playing with plug gaps is killing it, but not fixing it. I don't think it likes these TR6 plugs at all. It ran fine on the old plugs and they were wore out.
