Just thought I would start a thread to find if anyone had installed any NEW Go-Fast, or any Mod's for that matter. (Future or past)

PIC's would be nice to share if Available!

I'll start, but I have no pic's yet, :rolleyes:

1. Changed all my pulley's on my tensioner's to Anodized RED one's From Heartland Fab. out of Mo.

2. Bought as of now, 2 Radiator Hose clamps (upper only, so far) in RED from PI-thon. Dresses the hose up very nice..... no more worm clamps. Ugly!!!

3. SOLD my A/C Delete Pulley & Bracket and went to a shorter Dayco Belt. Cleans up Engine Compartment nicely.

4. Got rid of that ugly fadded factory Washer Fluid Res. and put in the one from the late models in the front bumper area. More room in Engine Compartment as will. Purchased from Junkyard!!

5. Modified the Stainless Radiator Dress Up panel that I had to make #4. excessable. Purchased 2 years ago from Magnum Powers.

6. Come Spring of 06, having my SC totally repainted, all dent, rust removed, etc... To be done by a guy recommended to me, name is Rick Moulton I think?? Anyways he paints out of his Nice hugh Garage for a living. He specializes in Black Paint jobs too :D

7. After SC is painted, then I'm purchasing NEW Chrome inserts from SS Inserts to fill in my 'THUNDERBIRD SC' lettering in Rear Bumper Cover. Nice Look with the Black Paint, I think!

8. If I have any more $... hehe! I'm wanting to go with bigger Front barkes from KVR. They will be the late model 11.57" ones, will be cross drilled/slotted.

9. Hopefully the SCT Chip, and have it tuned to finish it off for next years Mod's.

I'll probably stop there for next year.... wanting to find a cheap Ford Explorer from 90-93 or a Bronco II from 88-89, either has be be a 4WD, (A most) Auto if possible.

So Who is next??????????

Sounds like you'll be busy, Jeff.

Unherd doesn't know it yet, but he is getting the at least the j-mod soon. :D

I am having dirtyd0g help me install PI cams this coming weekend. Perhaps I'll even snag a PI intake before then.

After that, I'd like to install Magnaflows to give the Vic a little bit of rumble.

My real goal is then having a custom converter installed and having the SCT chip re-burned and dyno-tuned. We'll see if time and funds allow for such things.

You wanna bet that I don't know? He he. If it's any mod that'll be next for me, it's that one.

This is gonna sound like a newb question, but what's the purpose of having the car dyno-tuned if you're gonna have a chip burned? I would've figured that the chip would already do all the tweaking to the engine. :confused:

Excellent. :D

I could be wrong, but I believe they'll use the dyno to gather all the info needed ( ie: shiftpoints) to reburn the chip and really "fine-tune" everything. Plus, I am curious to know what the Vic is now putting down in power.

We'll have to meet up after this Saturday and see if you notice any difference w/my Vic.

Nothing lately. Getting ready to install 4.10 gears and maybe try a little weight reduction. Any tips?
