Nobody every said whether or not they added an oil filter re-locator, or not.

I'll be trying to get the dual one to fit tomorrow (if I can find a good place to mount it).

Maybe I'll be able to find a good place where air will flow over the filters so it will act a little like an oil cooler as well.

I am 100% sure the car I have now will not be blown.
I special ordered it and knew pretty much what I wanted to add to get the car I wanted.
That is not to say I won't buy another Mustang and build it with a turbo or blower.
Remember, I paid off my current car last spring.

Wow Jed. Your car was in some really good company there. I can't decide which I like better, the '69 or the '70. Which did you prefer in person?

Don't be trying to displace your bad luck on me Bill..... I'm only running 9psi now with the Saleen, and will be at about 475 rwhp.

The '69 is nice. And a better color too.

Well if no one else is gonna speak up....

Um, nope not for me. I don't yet have a reason to do so. I think Bill did something different because of the new block but I don't think he re-located it. Turbo peeps are the only ones I've heard doing so. Sorry.

I never recalled anyone here having a filter relo kit. You'll be the first!

Must have missed your question. Nope, no relocator for me.

Install was cake. Few bolts and then bleed the brakes. Couple of hours. I've been indoors all day working on some projects so I have no time behind the wheel except for the quick drive on my street to make sure the car would stop once I pressed the brakes, lol. Tomorrow I'll give them a run for their money.

But like I said, my first impression of them is fantastic. They're just much more responsive now. A lot less pedal travel. And they look awesome behind the rims. For Birthday/Christmas I'll get some C/D rotors to match the rears. Would also like to get a bracket to make the rear brakes also 13/14" whatever size I can find. So it's a little more even looking(front and rear).

69's always been my favorite of the two years.

Hey, I will never wish any of my bad mojo onto anyone! That's why I'm speaking from wisdom.

True. Only the angle of the filter location change. My setup is off a Lightning.

I think the quesiton becomes more, when will I find the Stang I want to buy? hopefully soon with the 2010's coming out, people will trade up for those, then I'll be able to find the Vista Blue, with IUP, 5sp, and 18" polished bullits

What wheels do you have now ? You're not running the AR Torq Thrusts anymore, right ?



welp... Have fun guys. After tonight I'm 'off-the-grid' until Wednesday sometime. Probably end-up being 5+ pages back. Hopefully I'll get to post some cool pics, not car related of course. Got my fingers crossed for ya Bill. Next week is the WEEK !!!! I feel it.

Both looked really clean but I think I like the 70 a little better that color combination makes me HOT! Hot!

I think the San Diego show tomorrow will have a ton of eye candy also.
