Good evening Fellow TC owners and enthusiasts. This morning I made the trip from MA to NJ to pick up my new 87 TC. 15 hours later in back and ready to get working. This is my 6th TBird and 4th TC. Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. Some minor repairs needed under the hood; small oil leak either from bad filter or double gasket, oddball header is either cracked or severely leaking due to poor installation, and the clutch needs to be assessed) the body and interior is immaculate IMO. I’ll be searching the forum for countless days and asking for answers I can’t remember from 17 years ago. So great to be back in the TC club

Great to see you joined the forum and great looking car.

If the aftermarket manifold is cracked, you may either want to consider another E6 manifold, Gnari manifold, or the new Boport header ($$). I am one of the ones that replied to your FB post, the one from Connecticut. Hopefully I will get to see the car in person some day.

absolutely in the spring after a few hours under the hood.. its been awhile since I was in the TC game so these new vendors are popping up all over. I've heard some good reviews on the boport stuff.
