Ohh baby! Thats a lot of goodies you got there! Im jelly, lol. Be careful with the timing/timing belt. Do you know when it was last changed? I would recomend replacing it along with the tensioner pully (get the kit) just to be safe. You wouldnt want to have to rebuild your engine too after slapin on all those shiney new parts! Any plans on going FI? That would be the cherry on top... Welcome to FF!

Timing belt was done at 81k along with tensioner and pully, car is now at 102k. No need to replace it all right now. Ive done timing before one a VCT zetec, it's just a huge pain.

Devan, where are you tracking? Gratten or Gingerman? I am part of a group called AutoInterests, and we are hosting an even at Gingerman memorial day weekend. www.AutoInterests.com

gingerman is closer by distance. I haven't tracked the car at all yet. I would like too before I do the huge suspension overhaul.

Do you have any times for the event? dates are cool, but id like to be able to get an idea of home much track time Ill be able to get.

you get roughly 5-6 20 min sessions each day with us. We also have full driver training for novice. You gen an instructor with you in the morning. and once you are ready can go out on your own. We like to keep it nice and safe. Have to be trackside roughly by 8. I start my tech inspection pretty early when I can. and I tech through the driver meeting also.
