    well, the mustang has been sold and i'm now in the stages of packing up to get ready for the move to VA next tuesday.. but i got a few things...

    2002 F150 FX4 4x4 Supercrew.. that was stock,but that didn't last long.

    The day afterwards, it got a Flowbastard catback, 33" BFG all terrains, K&N cold air intake, window tint (which isn't dark enough), F150 lightning tail lights, Billet alum. grill, slotted front rotors, baja style front bumper. And a Fabtech 6" Suspension lift.

    yea its a 5.4 and i've been thinking of doing a lightning blower upgrade to it, but theres alot of stuff to buy for that swap... but if i can kind a complete intake and blower assembly its a possibility.

    i'll get better pics later

    Its on ebay or was, everything from the heads up (not the heads) injectors,rail,both intakes, and blower. The only thing not there was the pulleys to tension it.

    Yea i sold the one in my Sig.

    I miss it.. but i'm glad its gone. It was fun for the first month or two, but when it came down to keeping the thing running right all the time, it was more of a headache than anything. For a daily driver it was just to much....

    But the guys who bought it have big plans for it. Built 8.8 or 9", AODE w/ transbrake and Stall and a T76GTQ turbo upgrade, and plans to run it in NMRA drag radial class (i believe). So the car is gone, but not out of sight :)

    Here's the main reason for selling the car:

    1. I have a $1200 A MONTH school loan to pay
    2. I had $4k in debt for credit cards and other little crap.
    3. I was moving and needed something to move with (and have moved every year for the past 3 years).
    4. The car was more of a headache than it was fun. and it still had "issues" that i just didn't have the time nor the money to put into it to make it absolute PERFECT (such as fixing an oil leak, and a $800 dyno tune bill).

    So.. I sold the car.

    PAID CASH for my truck
    Paid off $4k in debt
    have a way of moving stuff..
    Got to keep my airplane
    no longer have the headache of keeping the car running
    AND had $2500 CASH left over.

    It was a damn good deal.. and i'm now only 2 bills in debt besides the typical stuff.

    Good choice man, i know how you feel about your mustang... my cousin had a single turbo Supra and every 2 to 3 days he'd come to my house and pop his hood open to check for problems cuz his car kept getting messed up from everyday beating.. he sold it and now he's happier than ever O0

    Nice truck bro, i see the mod bug bit you a little early too :pimp:

    Keep us updated :pimp2:

    ya know, i never thought of putting a L blower on the thing. But if i could get everything to do it (including a computer from a L) i for say.. $1200 or less, i'd do it in a heartbeat!

    I got some $$$ for the car.. but i got good deals on everything i got for the truck :)


    DFG..

    Actually, i'm waiting on a deal for a 67 Fastback for $1000 to go thru.. if i get that car, its going to my buddies shop to sit until i get the cash to do a retromod conversion.

    I've already got the details on what i'm going to do to it.

    Air ride suspension front and rear suspension w/ a custom 4 link setup (which will be my own design) 19's out back and 18's out front. 5.4liter DOHC twin turbo setup thru a T56 trans and a 9" rear end.

    I'm going to do some custom body styling out of fiberglass taking the best of all the stuff i've seen that i like plus a lil bit of my own. It's going to have all the essentials of a "nice" daily driver, like power windows, locks, AC, heat, power brakes, front and rear disc brakes, etc.

    All in all, its going to be a LONG and hard process, but thats if i get the car to begin with, which needs alot of TLC and metal work.
