So i have been a member to the site for awhile, but its been nearly 9 years since i last visited and forgot the password to my previous username (Thomas_W), so here i am with a ingenious new username. Lol The last stang was a 96GTS that was fully built, single turbo and a blast. I never got any videos or dyno numbera with thay car before a new job forced its sale. The new owner reported back some dissappointing news a few months later. When it was being converted to fast XFi, the timing map was messed up and effectively ruined the long block. So it was undergoing some crazy mods (i need to touch base and see if it was ever finished). Fast forward to now and i found a local project car that was pretty far along (at first glance) and is proving to be just like a red head. so i have nicknamed it "red headed 3v swap" bc its current nicknames aren't appropriate in public. Lol so... The mod list as it sits: 2008 4.6 3v swap 03/04 cobra TB Lightning MAF CLT inlet elbow Steeda charge motion delete plates MMR coolant crossover delete MMR inline thermostat housing 160* thermostate SVE aluminum radiator Ford racing blue valve covers Ford racing shorty headers O/R X pipe SLP loudmouth catback aluminum clutch quadrant spec stage 1 clutch MSD 2 step launch control Aluminum driveshaft 4:10 gears Yukon locker Summit Upper/Lower rear control arms Strange 10way shocks/struts strange rear coilovers 4bolt C/C plates Eibach pro front springs Trunk mount Battery relocation Optima yellow top 03/04 cobra front bumper 4" Cowl hood 17x9 and 17x10.5 Fr500 rims nitto drag radials Aem wideband O2 sensor hid headlight bulbs diablosport predator Cobra front brakes 8.8 Diff cover/brace pretty decent list of mods for a $4,000 car. BUT theres a bunch of little stuff that is wrong that just shows the car was neglected and abused, so here is that list: multiple interior parts dont match or are broken parking brake mount ponts were ripped out of the floor ( WTH?) Lots of wiring needs cleaned up front bumper is held on with 4 screws headlights old and ratty dented roof panel (crappy hood) poorly repaired fiberglass hood (i may fix if.. Not sure yet) dented right rear quarter hood needs painted worn seats leaking radiator bad power steering pump needs a dyno tune no functional seat belts so that is where the car is, definitely a long way to go to get it how i want it, so this will be a slow going process, broken up in stages, as follows: First stage: install seat belts (ordered) mount front bumper: (a previous owner cut all the tabs for the fender mounts off, so in prep for a later mod (and to save $280) i'll be attaching the bumper with dzus quick release fasteners) repair and repaint hood repair body panels replace radiator replace power steering pump fix some interior parts adjust driver/passenger window stops cleanup engine bay wiring cleanup interior wiring build a new CAI replace (trade) the catback for something less obnoxiously loud This stage will basically get the car to a point where i can drive it. Second stage: This is to prep the car for the third stage, which will be pretty fun battle boxes through the floor subframe connectors steeds 4bolt C/C plates front coilovers Rear Upper/Lower control arms Tubular K member and A arms Corbeau A4 seats 6point roll bar (maybe) sumped gas tank return style fuel system 31spline axles C clip eliminators welded axle tubes 31spline locker or spool Third stage: Twin turbo setup (probably CGfab headers with everything else DIY) built short block (unless i decide to do a 4v swap, then it'l be a long block) Anyways, that is the plan. Im mostly waiting on parts to show up so i can get rolling. It'll still be slow going as ive got alot of side jobs going on right now.
