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.

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!

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..
