LouBomb not really a pic worthy update-

but started the tuning process again after fixing a few things..

car is running again :D

havent really done any WOT pulls in it because we are still in the beginning stages and i have a dreaded 4k rev limit lol (tuner says i have to behave)

but so far car feels really good.. i drove it to work, which is a short drive but still.. i couldnt even pull it out the driveway a couple weeks ago lol

hopefully i can start closing out the tune and work on cleaning it and bodywork along with suspension..

LouBomb Now im going with Jim/Chaz style of manifold. should be interesting once i get it.

and yeah i contemplated going with the mustang tb, but i already had a fc one so i said it. lol

thielt1 Interesting, most people now do away with them or get the mustang throttle bodies because of those issues. I love seeing some of these parts from the beginning!

LouBomb I never had it installed, but the location was done this way by FC back when..

From what I was researching, no one really had any issues with it once the tune was done.
