Hiatus

Post by 306Fox on Sat May 24, 2014 2:27 am

Just got back from hiatus. Mixture of being too busy, and my car not running right kept me from staying active.

Just went to a local meet with some friends, and ran into Nicholas. He talked me into coming back over to become active again to go on some cruises and meets with you guys/gals.

I picked up another Fox while on my year long hiatus (notchback), and have some big plans for it down the road (408/T56). Until then, my hatch is running perfect for cruises!

Worthless thread without some pictures to see the projects!

Newbie thread is here: http://www.mdpatriotstangs.com/t4775-new-guy

Since then it's gone through some pretty big changes. New cam, New Intake, Suspension stuff, a lot of electrical diagnosing, and some body work/trim.

Replacing intake -- The GT40 lower wasn't drilled and tapped for an ACT sensor. I received the cobra intake from my buddy who sold me the notch. Decided since I was just going with a whole new build on the notch so I put the cobra upper/lower into the hatch. Fixed all no-start and misfire issues while I had everything out.

Some pics:











Here's the hatch now as it sits in front of my house:



Looking forward to some cruises real soon to meet up with everyone, and sorry for taking so long to get back! Razz

Nice rides and NICE garage.  What I'd give for that kind of space!

I was going to go with a C4 or rebuilt AOD, but some friends convinced me to stay with a stick. Only solid option for the horsepower range that I'm looking for is a T56. Definitely heard some great things about that trans though!

Thanks! The garage is actually an old chicken barn that me and my uncle turned into a shop. I'd say the biggest PITA about a shop that big is it's VERY easy to just throw stuff to the side and forget about it (which means a ton of clutter). Took us three days to clear that spot for my notchback to sit. I have a build thread on mustangforums to keep track of my progress of the build(s): Notch Build

Lots of plans for the future with my cars, only issue is money lol
