  • I lifted the hood and smiled at the newly swapped 3L, even thought it still won't start. lmao

    • Got the emissions testing done on the turbo car this past Saturday. Car past testing and as soon as I left the CEL turned on again. Guess I should really change out that O2 Sensor for the P0171 it throws from time to time.

        • Went to drive the SVT Monday and it wouldn't start. Tried again yesterday and I didn't hear the fuel pump prime ..... have to look into it more still.

          • Haven't posted in awhile. Daily driving a 97 zetec auto, replaced the head and motor mounts and a bunch of other little doodads. About to put my modded 96 GL MTX75 back on the road. Full 98+ leather interior + faux wood installed, picked up an OEM SACHS clutch kit and Ford TOB just installed. Cleaned and painted the subframe since I had it out, new oil pan gasket painted red for giggles, new valve cover gasket, painted the valve cover black, new AC dryer canister thingy. Need to refill the MTX still, put in the axles, bolt up the front suspension and exhaust and then the intake and it'll be good as new at 250k.

                        ​I know, right? But it is totally dry. The shop did a fantastic job for $1100! Crap shops like MAACO wanted much more for way less quality.

                          • Just put an order in with rock auto for strut moog mounts/bearings. I got front links from Ford on the way ( did the rears already). researching struts but I think I'm just going to go with Bilstien B4s. stock piling for the spring. My front strut has small leak after 16+ years and a little bouncy :) . I put centric front brakes on from tire rack, they suck. I hate the feedback from them. I had Brembo blanks with hawk pads for many years but the brakes are limited now for our cars. I'm leaning towards EBC stuff this time.

                              $1100 dollars? That's amazing. Did you do the prep work yourself?

                              • No, they did all the prep - even had to take the hood down to the bare metal, but she required no body work.The shop owner told me business was slow and that he would rather break even and keep his people working. I believe the "normal" price was about $2500, so I really lucked out with the timing. Look's great, eh?
