  1. Psh... Lowering Springs... To each their own though. Some look good with it.
  2. I can post pics of those lines in the morning. But it sounds like that may be what they are for, because I do have the hiss under the dash while I'm driving, I'll try plugging them tomorrow and see if the hissing goes away. Thank you.
  3. Well, I think you all are right then, at first I was thinking maybe it was a unsealed gas cap light like the never cars have, but I got gas and put it up above a 1/4 tank, and the light turned off. As far as the lights go, I'm gonna replace them probably Friday when I get my next check, but I really wish I could find some non-sealed beam headlights for it, anyone know of any? (-.-) Like some adapter kits or something, cuz I'd like to get LED bulb headlights for it.
  4. Well, a week or so ago I posted asking what you guys knew about the 85' Mercury Grand Marquis 2dr, and I went ahead and went through with the deal, so I'm now the proud owner of this classic. I'll post pics after I give it a wash and wash and finish detailing the interior. But, as always with getting old, used cars, especially ones you're not experienced with, there's a learning curve. For example, I've got plenty of experience with the EFI 302 in the 90's F150's, but I don't know too much about the TBI 302 in this hog. So first question, The headlights. It has the fancy Auto Delay li
  5. Well, it was a grandparent's car before the current owner bought it just recently. The only rust is some surface rust on the passenger door, and the hood ornament is in the glove box, just needs to be put back on the hood. Still has all the exterior trim too. Heater works, A/C not sure, needs service I'm sure, A/C isn't used too often up here. Haha It needs new struts pretty bad though, drove it today and it bounces, it's an extremely smooth ride, but it bounces like a boat. It has a rebuilt AOD in it as well and it shifts well, but when you let off the gas it feels like you tapped t
  6. Anyone happen to know how much it might be worth If I buy it, clean it up outside, fix the broken glass, and bring full life back to the motor? Like how much it'd go for in excellent condition? Cuz he wants a grand now because he replaced the starter, and I already have a 91' F150, my 05' Taurus, and my gf's Mitsubishi Outlander. I wanted to fix it up and have it replace her Outlander, but she'd prefer a newer car that isn't a boat. (I love those older boats. )
  7. Hey guys, so a kid in my apartment complex is selling his 1985 Grand Marquis, for $700. It reminded me of the old 92' Town Car I had, so I'm kind've interested in it, especially for that price. Granted it definitely needs some cleaning up, but I've heard the 2 door versions were more rare because not many people wanted the 2 door version. Thoughts? http://anchorage.craigslist.org/cto/4400200075.html
  8. Congratulations on a beautiful piece of work. The feeling of firing up a rig for the first time after a build is amazing. And it looks astonishing. Good job sticking with it.
  9. I got my rig dyno'd the other day. In a 60F degree shop, with no air pushing on my front air-dam intake pipe, with 2" over sized tires, with 2 partially clogged Cats, and no 3rd Cat/ Resonator/ Muffler. My car's top run at the wheels was 140Hp @ 4,600rpm (150Hp @ 4,900rpm stock rating) 160Ft-Lbs @ 4,000rpm (180Ft-Lbs @ 4,000rpm stock rating) And I feel the information given on stock ratings, is at the Crank and not the Wheels. And a 9 year old motor, with 125,000miles, those numb

  11. That manual swap is absolutely beautiful... I wish he had a estimate on price and time that took... I'd have to drive my truck around for quite a while to do that swap, and even with the R2-5Speed in it, it's still quite a gas hog compared to the 32hwy mpgs I'm getting now. (-.-)
  12. I had no idea! I'll have to check that out, it'll definitely come in handy if it snows again this season, then next season. Like my old F150 with the R2 5-speed, I can take off in 2nd and minimize wheel slippage.
  13. So, just curious if any one has done the research on if the old MTX-IV manual transmission for the 2nd Gen SHO would possibly swap over to a 4th Gen? Or anyone know of an aftermarket manual transmission option, or even just some way to adapt the AX4N to be Tiptronic persay?
  14. Will it swap with the Vulcan Alts? Likely it won't, but if anything, do you know if the same company makes one for the Vulcan motor?
