It was at a shop I deal with. It met a curb and they attempted to fix it. They couldn't figure out the problem. Luckily I am both a great parts guy and a good enough mechanic!! I figured out what it had, and what it needed to be fixed. It is driveable now and I am slowly going through everything once the weather gets warm enough to endure a few hours outside. Plus I need to move the SHO out of the garage, but it's just too icy for my to want to do that to it.

Thats a cool hood! I think it would be awesome to somehow integrate this into that hood! Functional flaps in the scoop would be badass!

Currently the hood wouldn't direct air to the correct spot even if it was open. It's made for an SVT/Zetec. Having the Duratec I might actually gut the inside of the hood to make it cool the exhaust.

Yea. It's auto for now. It will be swapped out eventually. For now tho I tossed on a big cooler with Mobil1 trans fluid.

Ran my first track event in it last Monday. Did pretty well, but it was only 45* so the rear tires couldnt warm up enough to get grip.
