  1. Would be a nice option if they did.
  2. Totally agree. That is why I went with their Phantom set up as well. Pump kept overheating and vapor locking. Drove it recently to the Hot Rod Power Tour Ssop here near me and had no issues, pump ran great and as quiet as can be. I do like have the access under the car as I did have a couple of holes to drill for the lines. Not a bad deal, just have to put something over top of it so I don't have to worry about anything riding on top of the pump set up.
  3. Would figure they do this AFTER I upgrade mine. But a nice option and glad they are listening to potential customers.

    What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    That was the same issues I was having with the NC summer heat. Would eventually vapor lock on me. Would have to wait for everything to cool down, then would run again. I upgraded to an Aeromotive In-Tank set up over the winter and so far running good. Haven't tested it it super hot weather yet, but so far done good in the 80's.

    Replacement gauge options? Stock dash

    I ended up with the Dakota Digital VHX. With the 4 pods being used, It has 6 gauges, for Oil Pressure, Water Temp, Gas and Voltage. The back light is great and no issues with visibility and they have worked great. I will see if I can get a pic soon, one thing I realized I don't have a good picture of.

    Welcome to the site and nice progress on the 69. Coupe looks badass too. That is my second favorite body style, next to the 69.

    Suspension for the every day driver

    I have heard good things about opentracker and lot of guys are very happy with their product. For any suspension questions I ALWAYS recommend people call Shaun and Street or Track. He is very knowledgeable about anything mustang suspension related and will answer all your questions. I bought my set up from him and talked with him a few times before spending any money and he was always very helpful. He gave me several options for what I wanted out of the car and for what fit my budget. I did go all out on the front setup, but absolutely love and wouldn't change a thing. My car was SCARY to drive before and would beat the crap out of me when I drove it. Much improved over what I had and car drives great. I run 17" and 18" staggered set up, and while it is not pillow soft, it rides great and doesn't beat me up any more. Good luck, there are a lot of options out there.

    Huge loss for the family

    Sorry to hear about your loss. Beautiful Pup. We lost our huskey a couple of years ago, so I know the feeling. My thoughts are with you and your family.

    Upgrading to EFI

    I did a FiTech before the Holley was available. The user groups for FiTech have some great info and are very helpful. I have had zero issues with the unit and it runs and drives really good and even continues to get better the more I drive it. I will say, don't skimp on the fuel pump and lines. I used the FiTech external pump kit and had issues in the NC summer heat with vapor lock. I just upgraded over the winter with an in-tank Aeromotive Phantom kit and it is a much better set up. I also went to the the PTFE lines which are more expensive, but long term for the car a much better option, but not needed. I ran the lines away from all heat sources to keep the fuel as cool as possible. I put the regulator in passenger fender well and deadhead the feed line to the Throttle body and so far it is running great, and can't even hear pump after the car is running. I absolutely love the the FI set up. One of my favorite upgrades and makes driving the car so much fun. Great cold starts, no issues with AC, electric fan control, great throttle response. I know a couple of people with the Holley set up that have similar experiences. I think the support for FiTech has gotten better, but certainly lacking compared to Holley. I have also seen the display for Holley and it looks much better than the FiTech unit, but both very functional. I don't think you can go wrong with either. Good luck

    What width 17" tire

    I am running a 17x8 with a 245/45. I would agree with RPM that the alignment looks to be off a bit. The 235/55 does seem a little tall, but should still fit.

    Softer ride

    I had a set of KYB's on mine and it beat me to death every time I hit the smallest bump. Much smoother with Bilstein's.

    What front suspension setup???

    I would call Shaun at Street or Track. He is very knowledgeable and can give you many options from basic upgrades to full coil over set up. He is also a no pressure type of guy and will give you the info you want to know about and let you make the decision. Even if you don't end up buying from him, I would recommend at least talking to him. After speaking with him many times before buying I chose to go the coil over set up and could not be happier. It was more than I wanted to spend, but the results have been great and i have no regrets upgrading. Car rides and handles so much better than it did.
