  1. Got mine about 3 weeks back......
  2. Well how fortunes change in 24 hours. I hate to say it but it looks like I will have to back out. Middle of last night house AC craps out and for those that have experienced South Florida this time of the year being without AC is not a pleasure. An unexpected financial set back but I can get over that however then the shop that is powder coating a chassis for a project car my son and I are working on calls this morning and said it will be done on Friday and he needs me to pick it up this weekend as he has no space to store it due to incoming projects next week. No flexibility. If I don't pick it up it sits outside until I do. Then the person that is suppose to cover for me next Mon and Tues called to say her spouse has to have surgery tomorrow so she's not sure she will be in to work next week..... Talk about a lousy hump day.....anyway sorry about backing out as I really could use some time away but I can't find an alternate backup for work and the chassis is just another stressor I'd rather put behind me. Have fun in the mountains...... GT
  3. So is anyone coming up from the south side through Atlanta into Boone on Saturday? Still working on clearing my schedule but if I can make it work I will head up Friday late afternoon with an overnight somewhere in North Florida and run Saturday into Boone. Looking to see if anyone running a similar route and wants to coordinate a meetup somewhere. GT
  4. Okay just checked and saw you guys got rain delayed. I guess its time to dust off the car and see about reservations and getting some time off work...... GT
  5. I would be up for a Friday afternoon departure for the Florida team. The only issue I have is that I am not sure I can make the 29th event date due to a family commitment. I am ok with the rain date.....go figure.... Still trying resolve family commitment without ending up in the dog house for life.... GT
  6. Does anyone have any insight or tips on how to de-pin the TPS connector on an 07-09 mustang gt? Doing a TVS install and need to change the connector housing for the new throttle body. I have a de-pinning tool and know the white part of the connector has to be slid forward before trying to de-pin the connector but that's about it. I can't figure how to release the connector from the housing with the tool. Any help would be be appreciated. Thxs GT
  7. Interested...just depends on date and if I can get the time off..... GT
  8. He could also just pick up a used engine and install that. There are typically 3 or 4 low mileage ones on eBay at reasonable prices. GT
  9. That is my biggest fear with Servicing the car. I actually purchased a replacement splitter a few years back as an insurance policy as my splitter had already had a small chip from road debris. I don't drive the 40th much but service always worries me. GT
  10. I am using 20 mm spacers to clear the Brembos on my car. Have had no issues. Only real pain is removing and installing the front spacers as I do track the car on occasion and run dedicated track tire setup.
  11. As a side note on the ramps, race ramps also has a ramp option for car lifts that are designed for lowered cars. They are even lighter than the aluminum ramps and work really well with lowered mustangs. As for the width, once you drive on two or three times you get the hang of it and it's amazing how easy it is to get the car centered and aligned on the first shot without a spotter. Just make sure the lift comes with wheel chocks that you can preset. That way you can stop the car in the same place every time.
  12. I have DirectLift 8 with the extended lift height as I have no ceiling height restrictions. Have had it for about 6 months and happy to date. No issues. Running on 115v. Makes life under the car so much easier. Only complaint is that I also bought the corresponding 3500 jack and i barely get enough lift of the runners for a lowered car fitted with 20 inch rims. GT
  13. The rear axle is the same. Standard GT500 rear axle. If the original cover is in place likely stock gears are still installed. GT
  14. Looks good. Not many people know what the 427 edition is and as each year passes I find myself having to explain it to more and more people. GT
  15. Car looks great but not digging the creature comforts in the shop. How about a nice couch so we can all come over and supervise.....a single chair and stool does not appear very inviting nor does it look too comfy..... GT
