  1. ::welcome:: from San Antonio! This site saved me a fortune in time, frustration, and money! I can't wait to see the finished product! Cheers!
  2. I'm running iTunes with no issues. Didn't have to do anything to make it run. Maybe not the latest version? JHawk
  3. I converted a few weeks ago to 10 and had a few issues that required going into the registry to solve. But once I fixed those it seems pretty user friendly and easy to navigate. Of course, I'm always an early adopter :D
  4. I think you're right the 1406 seems to make sense. As fate would have it (in a good way for once) my carb is actually starting to respond correctly so I may hold off on it. We'll see because I'm itching to pull the trigger. Thanks for the tip, I'm sure this will come in handy when I get there.
  5. Thanks guys! And I think you're right kid... I've been doing some research and I think these are all the parts required and this is the best set up for me: - Edelbrock 2750 intake - http://www.jegs.com/i/Edelbrock/350/2750/10002/-1 - Intake gasket kit - http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS-Performance-Products/555/210205/10002/-1 - Edlebrock 1411 750cfm carburetor - http://www.jegs.com/i/Edelbrock/350/1411/10002/-1 This brings up a few questions though. - Is this all I need to complete the conversion? - Will this make my set up taller? I have zero additional clearance room (se
  6. Ok I need a little help here. I need to replace my carbonator. As most of you know I don't have a real high performance engine so I'm just looking for a good replacement. What would you guys recommend? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  7. That really does suck. We have a really big show and shine event every Friday night here in San Antonio as well. Up to 200 cars coming and going. I've seen a few idiot that feel they have to rev their motors and jump on it when parking or pulling out. No wrecks so far but I'm sure it will happen.
  8. Love this thread and agree with most of the comments. The body lines are what set these cars apart in my opinion. These cars have amazing body lines. It's amazing how many compliments I get and so many do a double take recognizing its a Mustang. It's crazy how many people say things like "wow, I'm not a Ford guy (or I never liked Mustangs) but I never realized how nice these 'verts are". I go to a local show and shine pretty often where there are typically ~200 cars on a good Friday night and been told many times that it's the nicest car in the show and they can't believe they are saying t
  9. :+1: If (and a big IF) they actually produce 7173s I think it would ultimately drive up both the interest and value of our cars.
  10. Nik, I'm not sure but I think you asked how to find the centers of the three gauges so that you can start your layout. The problem in this type of measurement is that you find it difficult to measure to the center when the center of what you're measuring doesn't provide an accurate point to measure from. Assuming, in this case, the three openings are all the same size, it would be best to measure from AN EDGE of one opening to AN EDGE of the next opening. (left to left or right to right) This spacing (edge to edge) is equal to the center to center spacing and gives a sharp edge to meas
  11. I just started with a slightly oversized piece and started in the center and measured outward. I just trimmed it up afterwards. JHawk
