Be very jealous of the whopping 285 and 297 of mine with a CAI/Tune and 4.10s...
or not. I actually didn't notice that before, your right at the 11/11.5AFR mark WOT. Mine briefly dipped to 13, but was 13.5 the rest of the way. Time to go fiddle with the SCT tune options again.

OP:

Here's how I had it. If you have any questions about her I'd be happy to answer. I sold it around April '09 probably to your seller. I miss it and looks great. Sold it to buy a ring....

Ah well, just bought an '03 Termi Vert yesterday ; )

That's it! Where'd the chin spoiler go? I didn't get it. Btw, did you put 4.10 gears in it because I just found out I had them! Also, did you have water leak issues? I had to take the fender off to reseal it and now the leak is back under heavy heavy rain. Did you take the top off the car or was that the previous owner? I need to have the rear glass resealed because it is coming off. I hope you're ok with the changes I made to the grille. Do you have any pictures of it brand new with no mods? I am making an album for it.

Today I got the Mac longtubes and ProChamber installed. CHE K-member brace with torque limiters and a tune from the iTSX.

JCON, I have a number of pics. Shoot me an email so i don't have to load all of them on here. lmtdex@yahoo.com

It looks great! It's yours now and your own thing. I installed the: bullitt grille, wheels, eibach springs, tinted tails, chin spoiler, and side scoops. The chin spoiler was on it when I sold it but my buyer said he didn't like it and was going to take it off.

As far as I knew they were factory gears. The original owner was a single mom just outside of Buffalo, NY and she didn't do a thing to it, completely stock. I bought it with 17k on it and sadly sold it with only like 19k (had to sell at the time).

I never took the top off and it didn't leak either. But, it wasn't my daily driver and it RARELY saw rain.

Good luck with future mods. I miss that thing and especially the wheels (RT Tire in North Lima, OH). I'd say I'd buy them back but 20's don't really look good on the "new edge" bodies...

How many miles are on it now?

I just went over 45k, I bought it with 38k. The gear install date written on the diff cover seems to be right after you sold it (2010 if I remember). I knew it had been lowered! but I couldn't tell by the springs. What drop is on it? I would like to move to smaller (and lighter) wheels but have to sell these first.

Not yet trying to figure out when I'll have time and the shop has time. They're an hour away from me. Also trying to work out a deal for 4 pulls in sets of two so I can pull twice then install mY intake and do two more pulls (instead of 3 pulls a set at $75 and having to pay $150 for 6 pulls)

Intake installed. Noticeable difference in pull. Install took the entire afternoon. I did solder instead of crimping though and I used a ton of heat shrink. it was in the 90's today and at idle I was running 112* intake temp with an 82* ambient this evening. Went out for a quick run and intake dropped down to 80* with the same 82* ambient temps. I am pleased. Looks awesome as well.

What did you have to solder to install the intake?
