Well, my winter plans are complete. The only thing left to do is see what the results of the upgrades are.

In a nut shell the upgrades were:

  • DSS Level 5 half-shafts
  • DLF bushings and Mark VIII rear LCAs
  • Rear coil spring drag bags
  • A 10% Overdrive Harmonic balancer
  • E85 conversion including a larger fuel pump and injectors
  • New tunes for E85 and Gas

Hoping to get the 91 Cougar up and running with the 427 over the winter. Also come spring, the SC will get a Mustang bolt pattern conversion, 18x9 Saleen wheels, 93+ front spindles, and Cobra brakes front and rear.

Mickey Mouse mods.

I'm thinking of changing the intake elbow.
Blower motor (sounds like chirping crickets)
I'd like to get my cruise control working again.
Consolidate my twin 10" subwoofers into a single 12" setup.
Maybe save up for a set of cams?

That's about it. lol

I'd like to finish the interior on my 89 S/C , figure out how to get the sequential blinkers to flash slower, and do the brake upgrade.

I picked up a 92 sport with a 351w, I need to paint, finish up the wiring so the guages work, and rebuild the carb.

Rebuild the engine in my 94 S/C 5 speed, (North Carolina car)

Replace the engine in my friend Randal's anny

and last but not least take my Robert Yates thunderbird to North Carolina to try to get documention if it is a Davey Allison car

Thats all

I have high hopes for what I will get done this winter but really I just want all of the maintenance up to date and to get the rear end ready for launching at the strip. If I can manage that without being sidetracked then I'll be happy.

  • Pull the 2nd dead 3.8 due to HGs :rolleyes:
  • Pull the carpet out and pressure wash
  • Install new p/s rack while engine is out
  • Pressure wash engine bay
  • Install 4.2/M5R2 with necessary mods
  • Mount BFG 255/50s

Not so much a 'spring list', more of a 'I better make it to the Shootout next year' list. :tongue:
