Thats def a nice mods list. Cant wait to see what else is in store...

WhiteDart April 11th, 2010 09:48 PM

Oh thats probably only about half of what all I have done. Those are just the things that stand out more.

In the last year I have been megasquirted N/A, supercharged with MS, hybrid motor with highly ported heads/ ZE cams on MS, hybrid motor stock ECU, gone back and forth on the Millie MAF about 4 times... I just cant leave it alone. :lol:

my95gtprob April 12th, 2010 04:15 AM

I wonder how long it will take me to pass you this time. Probably awhile considering this time I'm broke. :lol: :sigh:

juicedgt April 12th, 2010 03:12 PM

that was my problem jim, going with a "stock" hybrid and adding a CAI, caddi exhaust, mx6 tranny, mx3 flywheel, xtd stage 3 clutch, 2 stages of nitrous. the only thing it cost me was time, a few knuckles and about a billion dollars. thats why i gave them up. I HATE CARS. now i have a truck with a CAI, custom exhaust, tuned computer, 75mm TB and assorted go fast goodies with the ignition and electronics. Not to mention prolly cams in the near future. Im like you i can't leave anything alone, but the f150 doesn't break and it doesn't break the bank. i love having a mustang engine. everything fits lol. someone please save me from myself. how about a cosworth engine in the escort lol.

I HATE CARS. now i have a truck (with mods)...

So what your saying is, you are still doing the same thing, only now you need a step stool to work on it. :slap:




I mess with my car because I enjoy it immensely. I dont do it because I want to be the fastest thing around. If I never run at a track ever again, it wouldn't bother me a bit. I do it for my own pleasure and my need to satisfy my curiosity. Stuff like that sc14 supercharger that many people told me was a waste of time to try to use. Ask Jimmy how that turned out. :lol:
The driving force behind me boosting again? I simply HAVE to know if the MAF setup can handle it. :D

JKpgt96 April 12th, 2010 06:59 PM

Are the j30's done? Btw..I am down to only a couple vac. lines as well...its so simple now! lool

WhiteDart April 12th, 2010 08:40 PM

I have to do a few more things to the passenger side light before its done. But I have been running them flawlessly since I first installed them. Eventually i will make surrounds for them but that is waaay far down the list of things to do right now.
The really cray thing is, I have (well HAD. Millie Maf setup took care of that) no CEL. Funny thing though is, I can set up the vac system on a KL from memory so I guess its sheer lazyness that I dont have it all functional. :lol:

JKpgt96 April 12th, 2010 08:56 PM

Pics of headlights?

WhiteDart April 12th, 2010 09:05 PM

After HIDs

Cutoff

These completely close when off and have custom linkage so that the lights go up and down just like stock but are sleepy.

WhiteDart April 14th, 2010 11:11 AM

Got another goodie coming next month. :woot:

my95gtprob April 14th, 2010 11:23 AM

Jim and his drugs again. :shrug:

mx64life April 14th, 2010 10:09 PM

Goodies? I like goodies!

WhiteDart April 25th, 2010 07:43 PM

Now I have the blues....



Tokico Blues. :P

And sporting a stock-ish PCV setup with a relocated PCV valve.


I just now realized I think I have a relocating fetish. :wtf:
Things relocated:
PCV valve
Battery (fender)
HVAC controls
HVAC vacuum box
Stereo (pass. airbag)
Radiator fans
cig. outlets
cruise buttons
Diag. box
VRIS solenoids
Soon to be relocated oil filter. This should be neat because I will utilize the stock housing.

Current state of the bay as of today.

Edit:
Aaaaand, now Im debating on throwing the shaft setup back on. Hmmmm.....

juicedgt April 27th, 2010 03:32 PM

hey you need to change that alternator, it sounds horrible with that blower on. lol

phatgt4me April 27th, 2010 04:15 PM

I like those headlights. They came out great

WhiteDart April 27th, 2010 06:36 PM

Thanks. The headlights still aren't done though. Im going to build the surrounds on them eventually so you can't see the inner part.

Tomorrow, Im going to start dicking with the shaft setup again. I think I found a better way to route the big belt and bypass the AC compressor completely AND I can run the alternator in the normal fashion, which will eliminate the need for a smooth alty pully. This way if there is a problem, I can throw a stock belt on and bypass the shaft.

phatgt4me April 27th, 2010 06:56 PM

Doing it right...thats what i like to hear. I didnt feel it was necc to go through all that jazz for the quad lights..i bought Probe Addiction lights instead. Still need cash for the projectors. Anyways...keep up the good work

WhiteDart April 27th, 2010 07:25 PM

I like to be a pioneer. I love to try things no else has, thus, I have a very unique set of mods throughout the car that I don't go into much detail with on here strictly to keep them my own. One day I might sit down and spill my guts on everything that i've done but that's a looong ways away. :)

mikes93pgt April 27th, 2010 07:29 PM

i want details on the vac line delete. jealous lol

WhiteDart April 27th, 2010 07:48 PM

To be completely honest here, my stock ECU was probably just retarded. I left all the vacuum solenoids (VRIS, EGR, purge, etc) plugged into the harness. Tied open my VRIS butterflies and every vacuum line was removed from those solenoids and the vac ports on the manifold that were then un-used were capped off. My purge canister was removed. You can eliminate half the vac lines, and I can guarantee you will not off a CEL, simply by eliminating all the VRIS and purge vacuum lines. The only thing that would actually have any feeback to the ECU on whether or not the vac lines are hooked up would be the EGR system, since there is a lift sensor on the EGR itself to monitor its operation. On a 96-97, there is a "boost sensor" which detects pressure changes in the manifold from the EGR valve operation. Removing the vac lines and disabling this monitoring system may or may not set off a check engine light. Mine never did, but others will. Just the luck of the draw on that one.
I hope you didn't get lost on all that. :lol: I know its a lot if info to digest.

xrp861 April 27th, 2010 10:17 PM

i know what you are talking about from experiance on my pgt lol. i have done that with the vac lines myself. personally tho i would rather use my DE im than my milly im with the vris hooked up.

mx64life April 28th, 2010 02:41 PM

Jim wants the shaft again.....bwahahahahahaha! J/K do it!

WhiteDart May 3rd, 2010 02:20 PM

Just not a good week for the car. Passenger side fog busted (stone impact. 3rd set in two months) my amp for my subs blew, the glass face on my fuel pressure gauge on my AFPR randomly blew out, and I just noticed someone busted my passenger side window switch plate. :argh:

TNPOCmascot May 3rd, 2010 09:52 PM

that sucks
