WD40,

This is off topic, but wanted to ask.

Are there good places to go flat-out in your SVT in Montana???

Have you???

Yep.

Have you???
Well, um, on the grounds that I may incriminate myself, I'm "taking the fifth" on this one.

Frankly, I'm not a straight line "balls to the wall" guy.
While it's most exhilarating, (oops, I think that's an admission),
I get a lot bigger grin when taking a 35-45mph turn at 85.

BTW, Wyoming has some pretty nice roads too.

Hey to all,

Thanks WD40 Just got done putting the Steeda/Ford short shifter in the car and it is awesome. I also put the factory ford bike rack on while I was at it.

I got all of my stuff at BAT in Florida.

Thanks Super

Just added the STS this weekend. Pics and postings here were very helpful, the instructions in the box leave out a couple steps or tips. (like removing the shift knob. One picture it's there then next it's gone...)

Don't I wish.
You're just going to have to wait until at least my 3yr/36,000 is up.
I highly doubt I'll be able to hold out till 5yr/100,000 before there's some type of FI under the hood.

Got the SVTF STS installed. Thank you for the info WD40. Fortunately I found the complete console removed fairly easy. The instruction that come with the box was definitely missing a few steps.

I love the STS but abit hard now. Hopefully it will get loosen up.
