  1. Your numbers aren't bad from what I've seen/read before, but I'd bet there's more on the table with a cam. You're making tons of torque below 2500rpm which is dang good! Depending on the heads and CR, your torque curve is extremely flat-- indicating it could probably handle a cam with more duration to breathe better up top and get more power yet still be very streetable. Need to know CR/clearances Notice how around 4200-5000rpm the HP curve has already flattened a bunch. I'd bet some tweaks could net you 20hp or more between that range in the powerband--which is alot!
  2. Ill have one available later this year if you haven't found one already. I'll give it to you for free, but it won't be removed from my car for a while. Still have some shuffling around of the car before transmission is removed... Also will have a good working FMX for free. Does it leak? Of course!! That's why it's always had fresh fluid in it and probably why it still works so well
  3. I have to say, those are awesome wheels! Match the color scheme of your car perfectly.
  4. 3 pedal: ok no rush. I am interested in all the parts to be clear (run, booster, boot, boot trim, 69 DS regulator)
  5. RPM right =correct. Sorry for confusion. I can PayPal you as well.
  6. Could you take pictures of the booster?PM me your PayPal afterwards. Thanks
  7. This is the right one. My originals also have this stamping for drivers side.
  8. RPM Yes it does suit my fancy! 3 pedal I also need: DS regulator Bendix Brake booster Window crank knob & hardware front (1) 164T manual block plate Shifter hole trim (manual no center console) Toploader DS yoke 28 spline sbf Light blue armrests (non deluxe door panels)
  9. West Coast Cougar has originals for $35 shipped. Wanted to see if anyone had some they just wanted to get rid of. Thanks though.
  10. I am looking for one window guide rod for drivers side window. They are the same front to back, but not passenger to drivers side.
  11. Right now I have fiero seats installed. I made simple brackets to move the seats rearward 2-2.5" (can't remember right now) with mustang sliders. I did this because I'm 6'5. I know that's how far I moved them back because I specifically measured from the front of the back rests (NOT the mounting holes). No the rear seats will not fit a human now. The seats are actually really comfy and I haven't even redone mine. I also had blown out original seats before, but my fiero setup is definitely lower than before by about 1/2" to 3/4", but this actually made the steering wheel too long a reach even for me. Luckily I had an aftermarket wheel and bought a quick release (added ~2") Despite all this, when I get around to it I will be making/modding brackets to put Corbeau gtsii seats in. I got them brand new for a steal, they have way higher side bolsters, adjustable lumbar, and have a higher back/neck rest which I like. As they come, the Corbeaus sit higher than the fiero seats (unsure how much). Corbeau can lower the seat bottoms one inch by cutting the seat foam. The price is reasonable actually, but after shipping cost I may have that done locally. Lastly, I would have bought those Sparcos in the pics above, but I was concerned they wouldn't be tall enough for my giraffe neck.
  12. EDIT: Apology, I misunderstood the initial question. I did what I said, but not to the front of radiator support. I was thinking 'mounted directly to radiator support', as-in using the ears on the radiator to mount directly to support. Didn't read 'in front of' --apologies
  13. Yes, I actually finished that recently. I ordered a 3 core aluminum champion radiator with wider brackets than they sell to mount to radiator support. I am running the contour electric fan setup, 351w. In between shroud and water pump snout is about 1/2"-3/4".
  14. Maybe common wasn't correct, but desirable=$. I checked out Perogie, definitely bookmarking all possibilities. I've had decent luck finding parts on eBay in the past, and part of me is hoping a decent rebuildable booster will pop up. I went ahead and ordered a booster bracket. Right now I'm leaning towards Cardone #54-73202 which looks correct, and are very reasonably priced even if it only lasted me 5 years. I do question the finish on it though.
  15. I know of them, everyone likes their service. My problem is that questionable cores (rust/pitting/missing parts) are being sold for hundreds of dollars and it's a gamble. I am not against an original at all, but I have a problem shelling that kind of money out. I haven't been able to find a reasonably priced core or original, because everyone seems to know they aren't that common.
