Even 5.0 enthusiasts I remember telling me the 3.4 just makes such a cool sound that you don't hear in other cars.  I loved getting ask "what kinda exhaust do you have?"

"catalytic converters and a resonator - factory OEM".

Nick,

Did you hear my 94 Lightning when you were up here? 5.8 GT 40 motor.

4 catalytic converters and two short turn outs just behind the door. That's all. It can get, errr, a little rowdy.

Finally got those windows darkened up.  35% all the way around.   I'll have to get a picture of it in the sun to get the full effect.  

First let me apologize for the trickery and deceit that has taken place, but I'm sure Brian will agree it was fun to fool with everyone.   After a quick flight down to South Carolina and a 15 hour,

The SHO is currently immobilized. No brake lights and stuck in park. New brake light switch is on the way.


Thankfully it decided to give out at home so its in the garage.

I had that issue with my car. Did you get the upgraded part or an exact replacement?

I ordered MC part SW2258 from RockAuto for $12.

Ok. The picture on RockAuto shows the upgraded part. I payed $40 something for mine but that was at the Ford service counter. They sold me the entire BOO switch replacement kit. It took another year before I got totally fed up and installed it. :lol:

So late Friday night I decided I would replace the brake light switch, as I began to take it apart I found that one of the wires to the connector had broken apart and was no longer connected. So on Saturday morning I ran to the dealership and lucky for me they had the new pigtail harness in stock.

The repair job went pretty well considering I was wiring and soldering in a very confined area, got it all put back together this afternoon and the SHO is now mobile. New connector and a new brake light switch.

Broken wire.

All wired and installed. The kit even included heat shrink for the repair.

As many of you may know I parted ways with the 1997 SHO yesterday. The new owners took it back home to Richfield WI, a northern suburb of Waukesha and Milwaukee. It was a great car and I'm sure they will enjoy it for many years. Its already registered and bearing Wisconsin Collector license plates.

The stars aligned and she's back.

Its back on the road! Had a few bumps to get it there but with patience and some expert advice and help from Eric the car is up and running great. Full tune up and intake cleaning, new coolant hoses and complete flush and refill with MC gold or G05, new PS reservoir, new water pump, and new IMRC box. Some slight modifications to the emissions system too...Purrs like a kitten.

Fixed the leaking transmission pan gasket.

New pan with drain plug, gasket, filter and 6 fresh quarts of Mercon V. Hopefully that keeps the trans happy.

SHO got the leaky crank seal replaced and a new belt. Hopefully that solves the oil leaking issue.
