MAN what a power differnce!
this car wont even rev near 4000rpm, it shifts to soon! that WOT!
ahh gotta love the non turbo turbo coupe.
seems good so far, needed a cat back system.
no problem for me, used a 2003 stang laft muffler, and bent up a 2in tial pipe.
hooked up the torque converter lock up.
it has a mustang engien and trans (2.3l:A4LD)
fornt universal jionts are shot, nice clang and vibrattion at decleration. front left sway bar end link is non exsistant. and needs a 2 wheel alignment.
rear differntial makes a nice howwwwwww. any recommendations on that? thicker gear oil?
nice to be back in a TC.

Alright, Brian is really sick. He seems ok with driving a 90hp TC. Somebody distract him at Carlisle while I swap in a turbo 2.3.

Where's your sense of adventure? The A4LD would hold up for a little while at least.
