Couldnt take it for a ride today but when the snow melts I will be able to. So far as of right now this is the stuff I noticed.. Few tiny rot s...

I hopefully will be able to look at it today. I don't know if it's actually the pump or rack. But yeah that's a good point. I've never rebuilt any of that stuff but it would be worth a shot.

Re: t-5 swap shopping list???

This, FWIW, is the route I've been taking. The crossmember came from galaxie1 and is a top-notch part at a good price.

Hi, Don't forget a shifter and the euro shifter surround trim piece. The stock shifter surround trim piece isn't far enough forward and the shifter hits.

How does the seat of the pants meter feel with that i/c installed? I got one to put on myself. How did you attach the i/c to the turbo outlet? I'm curious because I gotta do that myself Also got any better pictures of how you did the scoop? I like it and I think I'll steal it haha its def worth it....
