Damn dude, I'm excited for you! Your car is gonna run just like the one in the video. And that 2.2 is gonna screeeaaam! Seriously though, it's fuckin' loud. :) For pure street fun your car is at the top of my list; it's so low maintenance and just straight hauls the mail. When I lose my motor I'm doing the same setup as you, simple and effective. I remeber riding in that car and that boost/torque in the low RPMs is ridiculous...then the blower screams like a cheap whore and your life is complete! :yesnod: It's gonna be sick! What a great Friday, eh? How about a :beer: for a ride? Congrats man! Oh yeah, and happy birthday!

What did the previous owner do to hurt the engine? Do you need to do some preventative repairs before you tear into it?????

Previous owner put something ridiculous like 30k miles on that setup before it finally let go. That car was/is a beast.

When is it getting tuned?

Congrats. I really considered buying this car, but decided I needed spend that money on my new Vega engine instead. The Mustang should be a beast. Be careful!

Nothing wrong, just a bunch of miles on 19psi from the 2.2 KB. The stock pistons are some what of a weak link in these cars. :) Preventative repairs already complete, good internals. :thumbsup:

Fuck!!! Not getting your car back from a shop when expected is like...worse than waking up next to a naked fat chic. You just don't even know what to do with yourself.
