I apologize to my fellow MFer's for it not being completed already.I have no idea how to get it moving along.I have told him several times that I need it done.I see plenty of vehicles coming and going but mine just sits there.I already gave him a sizeable deposit,so I really don't want to give him any more money before he starts it.If you guys think it will help I could possibly give him a few hundred more on Thur.I AM SO READY FOR SOME 4V POWER

John hopefully he reall gets it started ASAP because if a easter egg pops up and it sets back the timeline the car might be tore down for all-ford. I think we covered all the issues liek throttle cable, IMRCs , etc etc. But you never know what suprises can come up. Tell him you really need it done asap or its going up to the Ubershark Tree of Shade Garage up in the W-B.

I am headed over there tmw.Gonna try and get some answers if he's there.He told me he wasn't going to be there a couple days this week for whatever reason.His two full time mech's will be there so I'll talk to one of them if I need to.At this point it's starting to turn into a fiasco.I have no idea what else to do at this point.Will have an update either good news or bad news tmw.Will tell them again I need it done before all Ford.

I very rarley take my car to an actually garage or a friends (usually for welding), but every time I do it ends up taking 4x longer than it was originally supposed to its like a curse.

Dude that sucks! I personally would just go somewhere else. Hes not taking it seriously, and who knows how long itll take him to do the swap since its been 4 weeks and he hasnt even started on it. To bad you dont live in cali. I know a guy thatll do it for $450 in about 2 days.
