    • I rigged up a new PCV system. I cut the PCV intake tube to give me more room to put a 90 degree outlet for my new catch can setup. This way I can run a catch can of a different type and baffling, plus I can get to it far easier than when it was mounted below the throttle linkage.

      ​I also put a few more degrees of timing in the tune at higher RPM which resulted in even more tire spin... I will put new front tires on it next week, these only have 10,000 miles on them and they are completely worn out for some reason... ( I know the reason... )

      Hopefully next week I will have the new throttle body from Pole, looking forward to seeing how it affects torque.

      ​I put over 1000 miles on it in less than 3 weeks, a record for me. It will hit 76,000 miles on the odometer tomorrow. Love this car... Nearly 14,000 miles on the new fully built engine and turbo setup.

      • Changed the brake fluid and coolant in my '95 Mystique this morning, then sold it for $2k to my girlfriend's father. I was its only owner since new. Since his daughter has power of attorney for medical decisions, maybe I can get it back in the will. Could I then still claim to be the original owner if I sell it again? Time to change my sig.

            • That time of the year to start preparing for the warmer, non-salty months! Bought the cheapest pair of shoes I could find for the pig, and I'm going to proactively drop in a new fuel pump. Never been done before on this car.

                • Got the new tires mounted yesterday, but I haven't had a chance to test them. Lots of snow and salt here. :(

                  • Finally! Knauberized (removed the door dingers) on the passenger side for the SVT, (will do drivers side soon). It has been something I wanted to do since owning my first Contour SE in 2003, but never did. I love the look!

                      • Did the oil change Pennzoil ultra plat and motorcraft filter . Took her out for a little over an hour and all was good ( thumbs up ) .
