Re: Bucket List When is enough

the trick with a mod list is dont get carried away... at shows all the time people will have their future plans and most are "Twin Trubo" or "Built Engine" then they know thats never going to happen due to how much it will cost... its just a dream or something FAR down the line.

Another thing is to build the car, in the right order, to get what you WANT out of it... not everyone wants a 2000 rwhp drag car, some want handling and near stock power etc etc. You dont need to build nor can you build a car that does everything great.

Re: Bucket List When is enough

I don't think I'll ever reach the "last" mod stage. I've had the car since March of 05, and I only have exhaust and a CAI, the rest is appearance stuff. Being that I'm in school and constantly have stuff to pay for doesn't allow me to mod the car as much as I want to, so I think it'll be a while before I reach that point.

A nice 250-300 rwhp out of the car would be good for me. Mods necessary to reach those numbers probably won't come until after I'm out of school.

For this summer, the last mods will probably be small interior billet accessories, maybe caliper paint.

Re: Bucket List When is enough

my future plans are not certain~ I know I want to drop the IRS and replace all bushings and such. Thats about it for suspension as I dont autox so I dont need much else than what I have (or will have with new bushings)

As far as power, a pulley/tune or I might save up for a whipple/KB if I take the stock blower off i want to swap to a better one.

Re: Bucket List When is enough

Usually the last mod is the one you do right before you get bored with the car and sell it off and start over again.

Re: Bucket List When is enough

really the last mod is the one you do before you next mod... why would you sell the car?

Re: Bucket List When is enough

My last mod will be refreshing the stock block .020 over and increasing the displacement to 302 I believe....and also a complete repaint of the car while the motor is out.

My todo list is getting shorter and shorter finally.

Re: Bucket List When is enough

why are you repainting? doesnt your car only have like 20k miles on it? or are you changing the color?

Re: Bucket List When is enough

I'm repainting it to fix the **** *** paint job that ford put on it and to cover areas ford decided to save money by not painting...and to fix the stone chips and everything. It will be staying the same color. I will probably paint my light bar to match the car when I do it as well. Seen some pics of that, and I must say it looks amazing.

When you take off your stock blower, sell it to me. I have some plans and it includes a good eaton m112.
