The only stuff left is to do a valve-cover breather, move the oil cooler, then change some gauges in this car. The car is done and I enjoy driving it more than working on it. Now that the brakes are sorted (and switching back to cheap NAPA rotors) so I only have to change the pads, rotors, fluids, and tires.

BS ... every person I've known who's said this sold the car within two years and found themselves knee deep in another project.

Hopefully you're the exception.

Some people like working on cars. I prefer driving them and spending money on other stuff. The idea of doing this on another car, again, makes me sick.

Car is looking very good, fast too!
Any chance you could post up the spec of the engine? Also what bhp are you running?

~1.9l
8.6:1 compression
99 head

I'm running less than 240whp on a Mustang (pulled 3* for OK fuel), it's fast enough. Another 2-3psi will put it at 265whp on a Mustang.

fancy. Is that 10 or 12 AN? Moroso can?

I need to come up with something for my car - I've been slacking on something that's pretty damn simple.

Your catch can awesomeness is canceled out though by the fact that you haven't ditched all your ac crap - I seez tubes sticking out of your firewall.

-10 considering the size of the ports/baffles. The can is Jeg's house brand and $60 with the mount. I plan to pull the dash and remove lots of things after spending so much money on my teeth and a TV so i can't go to the track...time to make a harness and buy bulkheads.
