    I would stick with the current rims and tires, there are plenty of options in fuel saver tires for that rim size.

        and yes, you would have to get mil eliminators.
        Where can we get MIL eliminators for the zetec??
        and if you have a MIL eliminator will the car pass inspection w a gutted cat and the MIL???

          that's really nice polishing .... I like the way you have flattened the bar too.

          can I ask about the step in front of the blade ... do you keep it for a reason ? ....G.

            No reason other than i wasnt sure about how to machine it down. That was all done by hand with sand paper, and finished off with a Dremel polishing pad. I've recently upgraded to an optimized Mustang 65mm throttle body.

              I'd be interested to see your handiwork and compare it to the one I bought several years ago .... ....G.
