    Depending on the angle.

    That did occur to me though....it had to be done "by feel" so we'll just have to see what happens. I'd like to think that someone rebuilding a transmission would have done it right the first time, but it's possible it was under-torqued I guess. Hopefully it stays for awhile.

    Worked on the car for a little bit of time yesterday...thanks to Jacob, got some solid steel pucks to use for motor mounts for the time being. 3" on the driver's side and approx. 2 3/4" on the passenger side gave the headers some clearance. This also let the trans mount end up closer to center in the crossmember. I didn't see any markings on the crossmember that denoted the direction, but did notice there is a small hole on the driver's side where the wire loom attaches....so it appears to be on correctly.

    Hopefully will be able to get the motor mount done tonight and start throwing all the accessories back on soon!!!

    What are you actually going to use for motor mounts?

    If I had to guess I'd say the car is the motor mount

    I suppose I'll be doing some Turbo-Chuck style mounts. The steel for mounts would be thick enough that my old timey arc welder would work well...lol. Grab some polyurethane pucks like are normally used for lift kits...I don't know.

    Got everything buttoned up, fluids refilled and fired it up! I only ran it open-headers in the garage for a few minutes since it was almost bedtime for the kids. I'm not too happy with where the header collectors ended up, so hopefully I can make some adjustments to those tonight.

    Need to get it out and do some shakedowns....but time is running out before the midwest bash! Still need to put the SCT slot MAF in there and tweak the tune too. Anyone know how it compares to the factory Ford slot MAF? It should be a constant multiplier for kg/hr vs voltage.

    I've got Yoder covered....he ain't talking now. If he does, a hand-drawn copy of this goes to the town council.

    I took the car out driving a little more this weekend...been working on some little things here and there....vacuum leaks, reworking the MAF curve for the SCT MAF (4" tube + SCT BA5000?....why not?!) I won't lie, it's tricky working with it at the low end....Idle is around 0.6 - 0.7V and getting it to rev-down without dying was next to impossible. I wondered if letting adaptive make adjustments would help while tuning, and it does help alot. I need to work on the startup tables some....it's too rich especially when 40°F outside. Occasionally, it will still die at a stop sign, rather than idle down smoothly. I need to re-adjust the throttle body (back to what it was)....from experience, that helps the computer control the RPM more naturally, rather than a 2k rpm surge for a few seconds as you coast to a stop.

    WOT feels great, but is also too rich. I'm sure once I get the fueling straightened out everywhere, I'll be wanting to drive it all the time.

    Yesterday, Danielle and I took both of our SC's out to Palmyra...I didn't think to get a picture of both together, but I did grab an impromptu one of her:Name:  IMG_5400.JPG
