Yeah, that shift is gonna take some practice at the track. I get nervous as it is, let alone, trying to remember to shift. It'll come though. Thanks for the encouragement. Hope to have more vids after my day at CCD on the 13th.

I was told he has a shift kit in it already. I don't know the brand though. Apparently, the previous owner who had the motor and tranny rebuilt about 36 k ago, installed a shift kit. I have on my list of goodies to get, a converter and trans cooler. That will prob happen next year.

Right now, need to get my subframe connectors welded in AND get my pullies.

I'm glad Transgo worked for you, but you have to be very careful with them. Unfortunately their tolerances on quality control aren't as close as they should be, and this has caused failures. Clearly you got one of the good ones. Several of my friends and customers have not... :(

Sweet car, Brenda! Reminds me of when I first got my '98 and it was stuck right around the same ET for a little while until I hit it with the next round of mods...

What's that car weigh? I'm thinking maybe it's time for some weight reduction/suspension mods since I don't see them on the list. That combo never hurts ET on a Mustang...

Well, went racing today and achieved my goal for 08. I set out to get into the 13's by the end of 08. Starting from 15's to my best run of today as 13.873 @ 101.04. What a great day!

Image

2nd best

Image

And yes, it was FREEZING at Cecil today! Shewey!!! I'll get some vids up sometime this week. Amazing that pullies and removing the smog and ac can make that much of a difference. Previous best was 14.2.
