Re: What Did You Do To Your Sixxer Today?

Thanks for the lead! I am looking to do that first and then start looking into getting a new top. Mine is white with white seats. It was already tearing when I got it now little water getting in so that will be next after alternator. Then rear rotors!

Thanks! Good to hear. Yeah I am going to slowly replace older worn parts with nicer, chromed parts for when the hood is up at these local shows.

Give me some bigs and littles, a strong rear end with 4.10-4.30s and drag suspension and you can look into the high 12s. Oh and clutch and flywheel upgrades.

It was in a article I read someone also posted it in here.
Hell I don't care what you do with it.. Bring it back with a blown motor please..

Today I cleaned my Stang, installed the American Muscle 8in antenna replacing the stock one and just did general polish and maintenance on it! Installed Batman mirrored tag for fun and just waiting on the flow to buy my chromed alternator! That's about it at least for today!

Any CAI intake that sits in the fender well is gonna produce the same gains as any other one. The ones that ride in the engine bay are prone to heat soak produce less power
