From dusty barn find to daily driver, it seems our cars are never really done. This is the place to share your progress on your project car. We will celebrate your victories and commiserate over your tragedies. But most of all this is a great place to learn!

Hmmm, I like that e-brake relocation. Might have to steal that one.

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

Todd he did the 8.8 explorer upgrade and shortened the the right side tube That's popular. With a lot of guys doing it this area. I like the way he did the emergency brake upgrade and may borrow it also

2NDXRND wrote:Screamin' ? How's the project moving along? I'm morbidly curious..... I see a T5. I see long tube headers. What is the plan for the clutch set up? I ask because I used a clutch cable set up. There was NO JOY with the long tube headers I had. (2 pair, neither would work with the cable set up) I had to use Hedmann shorty headers. Thought I'd throw out a warning if you are going down the clutch cable road.
Love the X-pipe. Is that a Pypes set up?
The entire exhaust is the Magnaflow Stainless steel system marketed for the Mustang (15816). The headers are Hedman Elite Ceramic coated 88308 I believe. They clear my Borgeson power steering box well and the Mustang Steve cluch cable assembly simply needed a 1" bracket fabbed up to move the cable away from one of the tubes. Everything fits like a glove.
