    OLD MEMBER - New Account - Advice needed!!

    The GT Turbo is a typical Ohio car, so I had no reservations about resto-modding it. The '88 T-Coupe, again it is not pristine and museums already have showpieces. Among the other non-MKVIII projects I have are a 1965 Dodge Coronet 500 convertible, originally a 318/auto car but dad and I...

    OLD MEMBER - New Account - Advice needed!!

    My '88 TC was a 'free' car; a friend bought it for the wheels/brakes/rear diff/hood/instrument cluster. He is installing all of that (ok, I will be installing all of it for him) into an original 12,000-mile '88 Tbird V8. He told me I could have the rest of the car for the labor. It was a...

    Good choice on keeping it. I decided to keep my '97 after bouncing it off a guardrail (on the Florida Turnpike between St.Cloud and Kissimmee). The 4V has a lot of potential, and with the mods you already have, keeping that car would be your best bet. P.S: I also had an '86 Mustang GT T-top...

    Spare tire for hub swapped Mark 8

    Any 1994+ Mustang or Crown Vic will work. Question is; are you running Cobra 13" front rotors? If so, Cobra spare OR the later CVPI 17" spare. I got mine (17" spares) from a few 2004 Crown Vic Police Interceptors sitting in my local yard (I also got the driveshaft and had it shortened to fit my...

    Custom air struts

    Already been down this road, hang on to your wallet. None of the airbag manufacturers are cheap, especially when it comes to making something for a slip-over type set-up.

    Windshield cowl plastic screws - what is best to use?

    I usually hit up the salvage yards (whenever a MKVIII enters) and pull this type of hardware (among other pieces). If you MUST be original, this is the only way to go. You MAY (note the word may in caps) be able to use the MN12 'Bird/Cat stuff as well.

    Engine upgrades 1st gen

    NO need to do any head work for a slightly-more-than-stock build. The B-head will outflow your intentions in stock form. As was mentioned, your intentions for the car should dictate how you build it up.

    white face gauges

    I know I am necromancing a long-dead thread, but it is better than starting a new one (since there may be info contained in the thread others can use). I just received the White Face Gauge kit for the 97-98 cluster from Temple Performance and could NOT be any happier! The overlay is just like...

    SC inlet tubing

    You won't gain anything by going 4" from the filter to the 3.75" inlet. If you have 'packaging' constraints to worry about, stay with 3.75" from filter to inlet.

    For Sale hid bulbs markup 97

    Does your headlight low-beam HID bulb have a flat plug or a round plug? From talking to Jay after the above situation started, I learned that 96 through Mid-97 HID bulbs are the flat-plug style and Late-97 through 98 HID bulbs are the round-plug style. Find out which you have first and then look...

    About to sell this pos

    As for the operating-temp stumble, I would agree with the group here as to it being either a fouled COP or one that is failing internally. As electrical components heat up (from working), they change resistance and output. The coils are noted for failing at higher mileages and at operating temp...
