So not the best time to test but we ran 5 or 6 times each with trax control on/off, manual shift, left in auto and those times reflect the best of each.

If I'm not mistaken, cold weather is the best time to test as long as you warm up your tires. Colder air is denser which means more air in the intake, larger explosion.

What are the benefits of using 93 octane over 87?

Anyone know how to replace the bulbs in the convertible rear view mirror? I was looking at changing them to LED since one is already blown. Any idea what bulbs or how to do it?

And also, would I be able to swap and get the Mach 1 heads and intake etc for the PI swap since its 4v? I think I could make great power that way.

You need a lot of other small parts besides the heads and intake and cams. Easier to just buy a complete 4v motor and swap it.

Yeah, after researching I would actually lose power if I put on all the parts needed for the swap. I'll just build on the current motor.

So, I bought a new key fob remote to program to the car. It arrived today, and I was quite excited to program it. Stupidly I hadn't checked to make sure that the connector that I would need was in the car. So, now I have a remote and nothing to program it to. I thought for sure that my car had it since it has leather and the premium audio system. But, it was not so. So, anybody know how to make a non keyless entry car have keyless entry? I would assume that it would just be something that wires in to the door locks, trunk, and horn. But I could be wrong. So, is there a way to get it?

Gratz on your 96 GT if you do not want to swap the console just for a drink holder check this out Mustang Plug And Chug Cup Holder Black (87-97), it fits into the ashtray and converts it into a 2 cup holder and it looks good too.
