Midwest TMS'ers General Communication Thread

Just thought I'd start a thread for all of us Midwest TMS'ers to have a general conversation spot. Those of you that came to our TMS meet & greet, and those of you that didn't, speak up and let's talk!

Let's hear about updates to your car, future mods, events for next year, club outings, latest gossip, love affairs/addictions with Mustangs, etc. etc. etc.

Cool, Great idea! Heres where I'm at! 7 weeks into a set of roush rear window louver's ordered pre painted got'em 4 weeks ago they looked like they had been cleared in a sand storm... thats a exaggeration but not acceptable! returned them to be cleared again, supposed to be here this week!... Ordered CDC chin spoiler from some cats in Atlanta I've ordered some things from these guys they do good work!! Got my second set of UD pulleys, sold the first set then changed my mind and decided to install some... but I think doing this on a Auto is going to suck! Is there a thread somewhere on keeping the crank from turning.. Also got a set delete plates to install after the UD pulleys.........

Tom,
Thanks for the thread! Good idea
Great numbers @ Brenspeed's by the way!
STD,
I just put my U/D pullies on this past weekend. Get a impact wrench! You'll probably not get the harmonic balancer bolt off w/o it. I browsed through TacoBills write up prior, it was a great help. Also, find,borrow or beg a harmonic balancer puller. That was the hardest part of my install. I used a 3 jaw puller from work, but not the best solution.
I noticed a difference after installing, nothing big, but could tell the engine revs quicker.
Delete plates will probably be my next mod, I'm gonna wait & see how Scott's install goes.
Are you putting on the rear or side window louvers?

Hi Buddy! (Scottie)

There is an access window on the drivers side of the bellhousing you need to remove and you can put a 14 mm wrench (I think) on one the the flexplate bolts that will jam up against the bellhousing when you rotate the crank. I used a boxend wrench( with a zig-zag in it) when I did it. You cannot get the harmonic balancer bolt off without locking up the flexplate. Get a cheater pipe also you skinny hippy! Your going to need it. P.S. Go to Autozone and rent the puller kit they have. That is what I did! The right tools make it easy.
Scott



Thanks Tom!!!!!!!!

Grew up in alittle town called Remington about 35 miles northwest of Lafayette just off I-65. My wife is from Lafayette and we moved to Kalifornia in 1975 before most of you puppies were born. Love the Hoosiers and when I get back to Indiana sometime in the future I'm going to look up Tom and make him take me for a ride in his bad**s Mustang!

Larry,
I didn't plan to install the delete plates until the Thankgiving weekend. I have the plates in the trunk of the car but I do not have a tune updated for them yet. I left my tuner at Brenspeeds with Brent to update my tune but I told him not to ship my tuner back until Nov. 5th. Karen and I are going on a mini vacation stating tomorrow night thru the weekend so I didn't want my tuner laying outside for 4 or 5 days. I may just have your delete plates real soon. I got an email from Brenspeed last night that may delete plates shipped yesterday. Whoops!!! While the email says it is a set of delete plates I wonder if it is really my tuner. Hope it gets here before we leave.
Scott

Scott,
Hope you & Karen have a nice time.Enjoy
So was the opinion on the delete plates that you won't loose any low-end with them? Let me know if you do in fact recieve delete plates, we'll work something out with Brent.
