Have you changed cams at all or are you still running the magic stick?

That doesn't look safe.Both cables go through the firewall in a grommet. I am getting manual brakes and all will be behind it. So where is the fire hazard as no wires come within 6 inches of the headers?

x2 needs to be worked on next.All fuel line is steel and 180 psi fuel injected line. I just said update and not finished. So why critique something you know nothing about unless you have done such work?

Sorry, but I hate shit like this. Butt connectors, giant wads of wiring going to a small isolator, wiring not loomed or secure. It doesn't take much effort or $$. If its that bad under the hood, I don't want to think of the stuff going on under the dash.

that lower wire is for the temp sending unit that does not work. The upper right is the original Ford wiring, fusible links, dumbass.

Because I keep my wires cleaned up.try taking a motor from a bmw and sticking in a mercedes and then getting it to run using the existing factory wiring. I said this was an update and is not representitive of the finished product. And I'm sure you keep your wiring nice and clean. This car is 19 years old. I am sure the fags could do a better job.

you can have them.

I'll have to get a chance to come out and get them. Or maybe have jeff pick them up since he works up by me. What about the door molding? I could use those too. What are you goig to use to get the double stick off? Ive heard those 3m rubber wheels work good to get extra off.

Just kidding- i had some kid with a Civic and underglo ask me the same thing when i popped the Fury's hood-

He thought it was pretty funny until I said I'd still race him even though I lost second gear earlier that night.

Ive used them in the past, they work AWESOME at removing double stick tape and adhesive. The one I used was when I removed the door molding from my '03 Silverado.
