Was wondering how many other people are like me with a bunch of uninstalled parts that haven't been installed for whatever reason. Looking at parts that are not replacement parts, like changing out the iac, crank sensor, water pump, etc. List what you got lying around to be installed and why it hasn't been installed.

FOR ME,
1. INSTALL MY COLD AIR DIVIDER THAT IS CUSTOM. NEED TO CUT THE OVAL HOLE NEAR FILTER INTO A LARGE 3.5 TO ALLOW ACCESS FOR METAL TUBE.
2. LARGE AIR FILTER. MAKES K&N 9" LOOK SMALL.
3. 80 C&L.
4. 85MM MP TB.
5. MP PLENUM.
6. S - MODEL SC.
7. RAISED TOP.
8. HAVE 10, 7, AND 5% OD SC PULLEYS.
9. 10% JS PULLEY.
10. ALL NEW BELTS. WAITING ON RADIATOR INSTALL.
11. 50LB INJECTORS.
12. 8.5MM WIRES AND METAL WIRE LOOMS.
13. KW DOUBLE IC.
14. 2 8" PERMA COOL FANS. NEED TO GET WIRING.
15. RACEWARE ALUM. RADIATOR. AND HAVE ALL NEW HOSES FOR INSTALL.
16. MP TENSIONER SPRINGS.
17. KOOKS MIDLEGTH HEADERS.
18. FABRICATED EXHAUST FROM HEADERS BACK.
19. 255LB FUEL PUMP.
20. RACETRONIX UPGRADED FUEL PUMP WIRING KIT.
21. ALUM. LARGER CAPACITY TRANS PAN. (JUST GOT IT)
22. CASE OF ROYAL PURPLE ATF.
23. TRANS. COOLER. NEED TO GET HOSE, CLAMPS, ETC. (JUST GOT IT)
24. DD SCT CHIP.
25. UPPER ENGINE GASKET KIT. NEED TO CHANGE OUT VALVE COVER GASKETS. DRIVERS SIDE HAS SMALL LEAK.
26. AUTOLITE 103'S.
27. 180 THERMOSTAT.
28. BATTERY RELOCATION KIT TO TRUNK.

WOW, LOOKS WORSE WHEN I WRITE THEM DOWN. MOST ITEMS ARE IN A CLOSET IN THE HOUSE THAT I DON'T LOOK AT. ALSO, ALMOST HAVE ALL PARTS NEEDED FOR MUSTANG LUG CONVERSION (SET OF BLACK SALEEN SPEEDSTARS) AND CONSIDERING GETTING IN ON THE GROUP BUY FOR THE MP 10% CRANK PULLEY. SURE I'M LEAVING SOME PARTS OUT BESIDES STUFF LIKE EXTRA A/C COMPRESSOR, ETC. ALMOST ALL MY PARTS HAVEN'T GONE ON DUE TO NOT KNOWING HOW TO INSTALL OR TO BE INSTALLED WHEN OTHER PARTS ARE INSTALLED. ALSO, HAVING TROUBLE FINDING A GOOD MECHANIC THAT KNOW'S WHAT THEY ARE DOING WITH THESE CARS.

IF IT'S A 13 SEC CAR WITH THESE PARTS INSTALLED IT'S PROLLY HIGH 13'S. BUT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO HOPEFULLY NEXT INCOME TAX GETTING SOME DD HEADS AND CAM. AFTER THAT I AM SURE I'LL BE REALLY HAPPY.

Being a yougin', I usually put all my stuff in as soon as I get it. However, I still need to find a suitable tank for my methanol kit, so that's the only thing I have laying around at the moment.

Hmmmmmm....where to start.

SC
1)357 on the stand. Thats the entire thing from carb to tailpipe. I will count that as 1. Air bags 2. 'luminum LCAs 3. Diffy 4. Hood 5 (and it has not even been cut yet). N20 6.

That is my "get by" engine until the other two are done and I can build the 3.8 the way I want.

White car
Heads and cams. Call that one...screw it. the new 'luminum engine that is lying in the corner (need a set of NPI pistons for it to start). Call that 1. Converter under the table 2. Put the 3.73s back in 3. Headers/full exhaust 4. Throttle and cruise with the modified bracket 5.

FSB
HGs 1. Rino lining 2. Sound deadner 3. SC 4. Carpet 5. Solid axle/lift 6.

Need I go on?

Show off. Well, I won't be having a whipple, but let's just say, I am getting away from S-Port that's on there now. :D
And I forgot to mention the Griffin Radiator.
If you don't mind me asking, did you do all the polishing yourself? If so, where did you get your supplies?

I have an ever-growing inventory of NOS parts that I will probably never install on a car. Well, not for a long time, anyway.

at the moment the only thing my car is waiting for install is the sct chip but it still needs to be sent out and be tuned..and the 10%jackshaft pulley.

i still need to get a MP inlet for my blower but that aint happening soon:(

if you would have asked this about 6months ago i had everything in my sig sitting waiting to go on. it would still be but i had to install my motor before winter came.

Same here. I have 2 SC's and a bunch of parts, two engine stands, spare set of wheels, and a bunch of parts in my mom's garage. She wants them out of her garage too.

I've got enough parts to build 2.5 more cars complete.

There are three that are in running condition, notwithstanding a battery and maybe a wheel change...

When I retire I will be working harder than I ever did while working.
