she wasn't for sale. but someone saw videos of her on youtube and sent me a message asking what i wanted for her. i was interested in seeing where the conversation would go so i named a price. and this is where the conversation went...
is your fox body running a little warm (timmy?? lol)cliff notes: underdrive pulleys and black magic fans are poo poo.

i used to have a difficult time driving my car to work. i drive 30 miles one way (about an hour) and during the warmer months, which here in florida accounts for about 10 out of the 12 months, my car would run very warm.

without the a/c on she would run about 190-200. with the a/c on... well, i'd have to shut the a/c off when she hit 215 or so. that was usually about half way home. that sucks.

so our first purchase was a high flow water pump. didn't help.

our next purchase was an upgraded flex-a-lite black magic fan... the black magic extreme. didn't work.

i was left sweating in my car and scratching my head. i was not happy.

so we decided to go back to square one. i have underdrive pulleys on my car. we designed the turbo kit with them on. john decided to put the stock pulleys back on the car to speed the water pump back up. well we couldn't get the stock crank pulley back on because of the down tube, so we settled for just putting the stock water pump pulley back on.

then john did a test on the black magic extreme fan. he took the radiator and fan assembly out and put it to the paper test. we were actually disappointed to see how weak the pull of this fan was; how close the paper had to be before the fan would suck it up. and the pull was almost non-existent on the outer edges of the radiator.

john got an idea about dual fans. so we bought regular old summit brand dual 11" fans and installed them. we did the paper test with these fans as well and they pulled the paper in from farther away and the pull was almost as strong around the edges of the radiator.

the results? the other day i drove her to work and the weather ended up being 96 for the high and on the way home in late afternoon traffic with my a/c on she got up to 188 degrees at the hottest.

now thats what i'm talkin about!

a special holiday message to my gotstang familyHi all -

I wanted to send out some sort of holiday greeting to my friends and fellow stangers, but it is so difficult in today’s world to know exactly what to say without offending someone. So I met with my attorney, and on his advice (and after $299 in attorney’s fees) I wish to say the following:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2008, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great (not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country or is the only “AMERICA” in the western hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, or sexual preference of the wishees.

By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms: This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.

No trees were harmed in the posting of this message, however, a significant number of electrons were inconvenienced.

i love it!!! ]]>HerNastyNotchhttp://www.gotstang.com2007-11-07T22:22:29Z2007-11-07T22:22:29Z seen inside a cylinder?? ]]>HerNastyNotchhttp://www.gotstang.com2007-10-10T23:38:40Z2007-10-10T23:38:40Z
