Yeah, so I am obviously new, thought i would introduce myself.

Names Keith and I am from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Just recently got an '89 SC in trade for my lifted bronco... List of stuff it came with and stuff I purchased for it already below...

no pics yet.... but it's black with maroon interior

its an '89 Thunderbird SC (power everything, adjustable ride control, sunroof etc...)
3.8L supercharged V6
5-speed trans
Spec stage 3+ clutch
short throw shifter
20K on re-built (not stock ) motor (by some big place in Moline, IL)
square port M90 (from the 94-95 SC's)
Walbro 255
Venom 42#ers
BBK 75MM T.B.
C&L 76mm MAF
Hypertech ship
custom shorty headers
dual intercooler (two stock ones welded together, quite common)
custom "high rise" outlet plenum (about 3" taller than stock)
10% S.C. pulley
5% Jackshaft pulley
couple sets of rims

Stuff I have ordered:
8" 1550CFM fan (for the intercooler)
3.27 gears (its a 5-speed)
SCP Rear Torsional Load Brace
SCP Lower Engine Cradle Brace Kit
Cold Air Intake

other:
2.5" dual exhaust off the headers

If you want the 3.27 gears NOW, I have a set sitting in my garage pulled out of a Super Coupe. ( I went to 3.55s )

If you want them, drop me a note or get my phone numbers from Mike Albee.

I'll do that... If you are on wilson, I am probably only a couple miles from you. I'm on 5th ave by Taylor (the school)


Completely off subject, did you have a younger (18-22~) female relative in the army in late jan. early feb.? I got a medical discharge and while in teh discharge bay met a girl with the last name Albee, she is from Davenport IIRC but has family in C.R. and some other places in Iowa. I think her mom just recently had some type of major surgery (well in early feb.)

There are some Albee's in Dav. The father is a professor in Moline. I have a Neice that was in Resurves about two years ago but got a medical discharge shortly after basic due to a back problem ...
