    The FMIC is done & works like a charm. As Kevin had assumed...I had a pesky leak somewhere....well, I don't anymore. The car is so much more responsive to the throttle now...no real lag per say...just unadultered raw power. I DO h/e need to cut my bumper. There's alot of IC hiding behind that bumper.
    FYI, Kevin & I had discussed fitment issues, because as we Jamaicans (esp my Father) like to say...it's a "big rass-clat horse-rearing" (another way to say it's fugging huge) chunk of metal. Well, the radiator mount at the bottom had to be moved around so that the IC could sit up high enough not to be damaged by pot holes/speed bumps, small children etc. The windshield washer container, which is usually subsituted for a smaller one & relocated was yanked & tossed by yours truly, so the pipes would fit. I don't even have 2 wipers on the car, just the driver side one. & the hell with nozzles on the hood! That's weight savings right there!
    Anyhow, now I am waiting on my brake kit to get here. Next on the list will be an EMS system. Thankfully, there are 2 tuning shops here that have dynos. I'm still thinking about the GReddy E-Manage, but if the MS system that Kev is using is better & I may go with that. H/e, the guys here don't know wtf MS is...but they are familiar with E-Manage...so...I may just go that route & get the thing tuned by a pro. After that, it's on to the body of the beast. Burnt Orange with Black Flake is on the menu for the body after reconstructive surgery for the dents, dings & misc scratches. I will also have the valve cover painted to match. I'm hoping to do the paint in the Summer time. Also, I have been hearing through the grapevines that a Turkish tuning mag wants to show the Turboyata some love. I guess a few laps in front of a crowd turned some heads. Of course stay tuned & expect shout outs to all the peeps that contributed in some manner.
    Ant...hook me up with a sticker or two...or something...support ya troops! Haha.

    I stuffed 4 monstrous tires into her last night lol. I'm running by Shadow102s shop right after work, so I figured I'd just drive her to work and then straight there afterwards. Stopped at a light, I had a dude out of the blue asking where I race, which was kinda cool. I hope to see him come out this weekend, but I doubt it.
    Size of wheels & tires...?

    Well..... after having my rear diff crap out (what'd you expect when all the rust falls off a car from New York, and then relocates to Las Vegas), I got a semi-new rear diff off a 99' (only had 25K on it) installed!
    Major improvement!!!

    Also.... getting ready to install my new Koni set-up that a friend and me put together.

    Looks like it's going to be a l-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ng weekend of soaking things with PB Blaster.:rolleyes:

    installed my Hydra ems the other day. I have the idle and most of the correction factors set, just a ton more tuning needs to be done.
    I didnt realize untill after i did the first round of auto-tuning that FM has it set to run 11:1 after 10psi of boost

    also my launch control is not working correctly

    its part of the Hydra software, it "works" well to build boost. Only problem is when I have it turned on in my map I have no way to shut it off once I start rolling and it acts as a 4000rpm rev limiter

    Angry I spent the day looking for parts

    A few weeks ago someone pulled in front of me in an intersection in Virginia Beach. I hit the brakes and swerved. We still made impact. The insurance company toteled the car. 91 BRG Special Edition. It has less than 33,000 miles. I just got it from my Aunt in NewYork a little over a year ago. It would have under 20,000 but my cousin drove it for awhile.
    I am looking for front bumper assembly, hood, radiator, pasenger side bumper, parking lights. the head lights survived, (they were open).
    I bought the car from the insurance company for salvage and found someone who restores mustangs who is willing to put it back together. I just need to find the parts.

    Oh man, I'm so sorry to hear this. Good luck with the rebuild and keep us up to date on the restoration. Kudos for undertaking this and saving her from the scrapper.
