Oh okay cool

Updates:
Ordering Hawk PC pads, and DBA T2 street series rotors from Americanmuscle.

Also trying to find the best stainless steel brakelines possible, I'm still looking into that.

Trying to find any solid gains information on the MSD coil pack.

Ordered an HID get from DDM a couple weeks ago, but had to send it back because of a bad ballast. Im hoping to have the replacements back soon.

So far the only ones im seeing are the J&M SS lines on american muscle. Im willing to pay more to find the best I can buy, but I dont seem to have many options.

I just ordered the MSD coil pack anyway. Its only 100 bucks so I'll just try it and see what happens. It should be here Saturday, I hope. If not ill get it in Monday and let you guys know what I think.

I keep track of my fuel economy, and have for a while so I should be able to see any mileage changes easily. We shall see. I dont expect a whole lot of anything out of it, but my curiosity has gotten the better of me.

Im also looking at fuel pump options. Since I'm replacing everything on the car, I cant forget that.

I found a BBK fuel pump on late model I think it was, anyone use that one?

I dont think I ever posted pics of the stereo stuff. I have a Rockford Fosgate P400.4 four channel powering two Rockford Fosgate Prime 6X8's in the rear deck, and two Rockford Fosgat Power Series 6X8's up front. I'll have to get pics of the front when I take the door panels off again.

Forgot to mention. Ordered the stainless steel radiator cover from American Muscle. Should help the engine bay look a little nicer. Also going to get the billet accessory caps from AM as well.

Does anyone know where I can get some nice stainless braided radiator hoses for the 3.8? I've looked all over the place and am coming up with nothing.

Well my initial impressions are good. There is a noticeable increase in throttle response. Other than that I don't want to say anything for sure until I can verify any perceived gains are not just in my head.

Brand new Motorcraft pack vs MSD pack? At this point the MSD is already worth the measly $100 asking price from American Muscle. Keep in mind this is how I feel after just buying the Motorcraft a couple weeks ago for 115 from Ford. So really I'm into the coil pack for $215, and am happy so far. I'll update more as I can drive it more, and see what happens with my fuel economy as well.

My srt4 had 10% on the sides and back. It was miserable to drive at night.

I've decided to go with 20%. Dark enough to help with the SC heat, but not too dark. I have nothing to hide, and I like being able to see out of my car.

Yeah I hate driving his cars. Not because they suck but just because of the tint lol but I just roll the windows down at night cause it usually feels nice.. Lol I love driving his m45s that thing is quick!

Will do. Buy them from Late Model Restoration. I normally use American Muscle exclusively. But they are 10 bucks cheaper on LMR. That and LMR jas croftgate stuff. I wanted to pit the quick n slick against my megs ultimate wax and detail spray.

Here are some pics with the Meguires stuff.

Got a present when I got home today. My red fender stripes, Ford Racing shift knob, and Bullitt style pedals and Croftgate Quick N Slick came in.

Very happy with the shift knob, it looks great.

In the end, I'm happy with the pedals. Although they were a pain in the *** to get on,

I tested the Croftgate stuff and was disappointed to find out that it is the same thing as all the other much cheaper detail sprays. Will not purchase anymore of their products. Mequire's does just as well, if not better for less than a third of the cost of the Quick N Slick. $7.00 vs $28.00. I'm going to give the Quick N Slick to my buddy and keeping using the stuff I have.

I was just fed up after dealing with the pedals and lame experience with the Croftgate and ended up throwing the stripes in the trash after trying a few times to get them to lay down right.

I will get pictures of the pedals and shift knob posted tomorrow as it is dark now.
