    by now nobody's reading this anyway. yeah, still at the truck shop. the capri pretty much sucks.. aside from the gt40p heads with trick flow springs, edelbrock intake and carb, 87 shortblock, b303 cam, long tubes, off road h-pipe and holley mufflers with cutouts..subframe connectors.. I did put an 8.8 in it with 373 ford motorsport gears, and put new clutches in the rear last year, along with a pmgr starter and a bigger battery, so you know, there's that going for it. I just like people thinking its slow and stock..

    just bought it some more crap, (its secret) and I'm thinking hard about a tremec 3550 for it. It'd be nice to drive it hard without walking home after.
    . it does sound nice, but it needs lots..

    Always liked the Capris, is this one a bubble window? Sounds like it should be decent.

    The exhaust.. I put long tubes on it. 2 inch primaries. Not sure even what brand they were, but they are way too big. Rub on everything, and melt what they don't. who even made these damn things, I often find myself asking. Even the flaming river steering shaft doesn't clear.. so that's the next thing, shorty headers and a transmission that'll hold. if I can swing the trans, its going racing. the SROD trans that it came with wont take it. was designed for a lot less..

    I've got a honda in my sights... Poor bastard. I even offered to pay his track fee into eddyville. and yeah, its got the stupid back window.

    just crammed a holley street avenger on it, and some kyb shocks. If I find myself bored this week, southside machine traction bars are going under it.. Work has me worn the hell out. I should've ditched the edelbrock years ago. The holley made a dramatic difference. Probably frag her transmission if I am not careful.
