So, im watching some TV this morning, and all of a sudden i get a call from my dad as he is standing outside. I go outside and there they are! They drove all the way from Myrtle Beach South Carolina to Navarre, FL. It was awesome to see them! But, they came bearing gifts! The missing half to my roll cage (front half with door bars etc etc) was in the back seat wedged into the convertible mustang. To say i was a happy man is an understatement.
In addition, i pulled the steering rack, took it apart, and removed the internal seals doing a proper depower of the rack. Now i can have space for the exhaust piping and be good to go! Also waiting for a fuel pressure regulator, and calibration kit for my edelbrock carb. once that gets here, i can get back on they dyno and put down some numbers!
