haha, alright.

I wish I could do that with Hawk pads lol

ANYWAYS, as it stands, I need the following to finish the car:
1) Tune from TopSpeed (owe them like $100-150 more for it, need to call and find exact amount)
2) New intake charge pipe connecting to TopSpeed IM
3) 75 or 80mm 5.0 Mustang throttle body
4) Assemble all calipers. Install all brakes + Bleed and add brake fluid.
5) Buy new radiator + fan
5) Pay for and install chromoly upper radiator support from Dom he's making me
6) Install new -an water pump + all -an cooling lines plus two new fittings I'll need
7) Buy 2 to 4 90* -16 an fittings
8) Install AEM TruBoost gauge
9) Install vacuum lines (Anyone have a write-up on how they should go or anything?)

I think that about covers it...still a decent amount to do I suppose.

So just a little update on what is gonna happen with this...

Spoke with TopSpeed this week and they are making me:
- lower radiator support
- upper radiator support
- racing radiator, modified for -an lines
- aluminum thermostat housing with all -an line connections
- new intake charge pipe to use the TopSpeed manifold I have

I then just need a 70mm 5.0 mustang TB and to their remote tune.

Things are getting close!
