  1. I have the full Pypes X-pipe system with Street Pros on mine (non-staggered shocks), and it's awesome. Here's a link to a thread with some pics of the underside of my car with the Hooker Headers, AOD, and Pypes installation. https://7173mustangs.com/forums/topic/36463-exhaust-header-help-please/?tab=comments#comment-373381 http://www.mister4x4.net/cars/Mach_1/Frankenstang_20180928.mp4?_=1 Hope this helps!
  2. Finally got a chance to finish up my wife's new computer. Back in June, she mentioned that Blizzard would be releasing a new expansion pack for World of Warcraft, and that her machine might not be able to run it very well without struggling, so I pretty much blew her stimulus check on a new machine (some assembly required, of course). I decided to make it WoW-themed and hopefully, a little over the top. Fractal Design makes awesome computer cases, and I’m hoping they’ll like it enough for their case mod gallery when I’m done. Here’s the gear: Fractal Design Focus mid-tower ca
  3. The first big regretful mistake: I'd bought my first 4x4, an '85 Nissan 720 and absolutely loved it - lifted it, big tires, added all of the cool 'monster truck' accessories from the '80s-'90s, and wheeled the crap out of it. About 3 1/2 years into it, the truck was coughing and puking when you first fire it up and let out the clutch in the morning, but would smooth out and run fine after awhile and not while it was warm during the day. After changing out plugs, wires, cap & rotor and timing the sucker, the problem persisted. Then I threw in some Split Fires, new coils, an
  4. My Mom's been in and out of the hospital since 22 Sep for Parkinson's and old-age related degradation. She's currently in a rehab center looking to move to the other end of the building to the permanent 'nursing home' wing. Every weekend since has been all about getting her stuff squared away (bank account, bills, insurance, and literal things in her apartment). Sucks getting old.
  5. LOL!! Can't really argue with that! You know, interestingly enough, her V6-powered RS actually would have about the same HP as that 'Vette.
  6. I have a polar opposite story - a few weeks ago on the way to Cars & Coffee, I had a 2003 'Vette pull up next to me at a light, and blipped his throttle to get my attention, I looked over and blipped back in reply. We both had our windows down, I gave him a thumbs-up and hollered, "I suppose you want to give it a go?" And the guy blew me away. He literally said, "No way, Man. I want to see more of that cool car than just the taillights." He followed me to the Cars & Coffee and we hung out for about a half hour before he had to take off to run errands. Made my day!
  7. Confucious also say, "Man who fart in church, sit in his own pew."
  8. Oh. Mah. Gawd. I think I need a towel. One of my favorite movies and TV shows growing up. Blue Thunder's movie still holds up fairly well, although Airwolf's lost its teeth. Put aside the cheesy acting, plot, and dialogue, and I still love watching those birds fly. Both are definitely on the list as part of my quest to reclaim/rebuild all of the model kits I had as a kid.
  9. Yeah, I remember re-watching some of the shows/movies I thought were SO cool when I was a kid thinking, "Wow - did THAT suck" (Airwolf, for one). For the record - I was a fan of the Ferrari Daytona LONG before Miami Vice came out. I ain't gonna lie, though - I'd be perfectly happy with an LS-powered kit car version on a C3 chassis... even if it was black. ;)
  10. I have too many to be specific. But, I suppose if I had to choose just one: 1971 Ferrari 365 Daytona GTS Spyder Then again, this would be pretty awesome: Coyote X (McLaren Marauder kit car from the TV Show Hardcastle & McCormick) I'm going to stop right here... I could go on for days.
  11. I was recently promoted into my boss's job after he retired in June... and I honestly have no idea what he actually did the past 7 years besides watch TV and grouch at us. My inbox blows up daily, and the phone's always ringing with people asking me various things, and I've found plenty of things that need improvement along with getting some of our personnel transitions finalized. We figured I'm so busy these days because I'm more approachable and some of those folks calling me now might've been happy to see him go. Whatever the case, I've been too busy to slip into the fourms while at work
  12. I have a similar set-up, except with a Duraspark ignition and Accel SuperCoil - runs awesome and looks great! The factory-style distributor even allows factory Ram Air fitment without modification like the other aftermarket (larger) HEI style distributors.
