If the engine don't shake it, it ain't a shaker.
It is just another goofy non-functional hood scoop.

All in all, I think it turned out pretty cool.
Wow! Nice job grasshopper! Your's turned out better than mine. What size is the finished image?

I need to take more photos and add them to my library and maybe try the PC version of the software.

On K&N, are you saying that all 05's can have the CAI and be legal (in CA)? If so, that's wierd. I assumed that the CARB number gets issued to the product (and its applicable years'), not year to year.
when I bought my K&N CAI it stated in the documentation that it was illegal in California , so I contacted K&N very HELPFUL they looked it up and because I was CANADIAN and its in my car registard in BC, Canada that I could in fact drive it there ( cool ).

I'm going to assume your being sarcastic. I actually got rid of my "future mod" section in an effort to shorten my sig. There are still a few things I want to do like gears, MWAG battery cover,rocker panel stripes, decklid mat. There's an even larger list of maybe's; shocks/struts,lca's,adj. panhard,swaybar delete, SHR louvers and heck maybe a torque converter and some line locks.

Thanks!

Your Laser story was very well written, thank you for sharing that harrowing experience with us.

And, if anyone's still up in the air over what radar detector to get, Escort gets a +2 recommendation from both Tom and I.

Metallic Silver
Dark Charcoal
Dark Red (Something closer to "redfire" not "torchred". Sorry Bill)
Matte Black

I vote Matte Black or Dark Charcoal. See any Black GT/CS striping and that's the color I personally like; very subtle, but visible.

On that riveted hood scoop... although very creative, I must shoot it down.
However, anyone planning on entering the upcoming Fabulous Fords carshow at Knotts and planning this hood scoop mod, I wholeheartedly encourage you to go through with it.

6000x4500 pixels. 20.6mb.
That image I posted was something like my 5th attempt. Earlier ones looked like poop, but after monkeying with some of the settings, this last one turned out fairly decent.
btw- rendering only took a few minutes.

I agree that matte black would look good but then I wouldn't be able to wax it, right?

No plans on making a track monster. The possible mods I threw out were just that possible mods.

Hah, if only you knew how much money I don't have. I talk about about new mods all the time but the reality is I usually end up not getting them. A majority of the time I'm just throwing out ideas and seeing what kind of feedback I get before deciding to go through with the mod. If not for Bill and Kevin I'd have alot less mods right now. I would be willing to bet I've saved at least $1,000 thanks to there help with installing my mods. So to answer you question I'm Richie Rich I've just been lucky to get good prices on my mods plus not having to pay shops install fees.

If Matte Black, probably not. I'd ask Rob at BSM to be sure.

Not considering the NOS? Not even a mild 75hp shot?

Ah, where your sense of adventure, Leo? I had a 100hp shot set-up in my 85GT. When you hit the button, it's like another 8 cylinders came out from nowhere! Truely amazing...

However, after going through several bottles (over 15+ refills), my rings and valve guides were shot at 80+k miles.

Sorry, no phone number for him. He's usually pretty godd at returnng e-mails.

Well guys have have a huge dilema in which I have $250 burning a hole in my pocket. The problem is I can't decide on what to get.

Stripes-After reading posts in the other thread I'm not to sure about these.

Decklid mat from granddesignmat- Still waiting untill they can offer the pony logo again.

GMS Swaybar delete-$80=11lbs is it worth it???

LCA's/LCA relocation brackets-Do I really need them?

Adj Panhard- Can't just in my head $140 to center rear that's only have by 1/4 (Don't qoute me on that I don't remember the exact offset).

SHR louvers- Still waiting on pics.

MGW Seat lever buckles- Who the heck's going to see them??

SHR cupholder bezel- Not sure I'll like it.

MWAG battery cover-not out yet.

Suggestions or comments on the above?????

***ooops forgot this one***
New P.I.E. Ipod adapter- Not out yet.
