Hello again!!!

Hey everyone! Technically not a "newb" but, I suppose I probably am as the last time I was active on here was 11+ years ago. It has unfortunately been that long since i've had/driven a tbird, and that is about to change, today! Picking up a 94SC auto over in kansas. I'll post pics that the seller included, and will update with more once I have her at the house. She will have to be towed on a trailer as the rear end needs rebuilt, but shes getting 373's and a trac-loc next week!

Current owner has rebuilt the motor, rebuilt the tranny, re-upolstered all seats with SCP leather package, sound deadened the interior, new suspension, and new paint in 2013.

Current/upcoming mods: 10% supercharger pully is already installed, I have on order from SCP
- 3.5" intake with box
- 76mm maf housing and larger idle air control valve
- 75mm throttle body
- Single tune chip

future mods - once i have her driving, first thing will be exhaust, then just enjoy her for a while. Ultimate plan is to get to 300rwhp and leave it at that, but we all know how that goes.

well, without further ado, here are the pics:

Thanks Joe!!

I can't wait to pick her up. Won't be able to drive it much for the next week until the guy rebuilds the rear end but should be driveable enough to drive around the block. Wondering what I will be reading at the dyno once all the mods and the new SCP chip are put on. If the numbers from SCP's website are correct, in theory, i'll be making 290hp at the motor. we shall see!

well picked her up! Few things that need fixed but overall im super happy. First thing outside of the rear end is the power steering pump is leaking pretty bad, so that will have to be fixed. Breaks are needing to be bled BAD, and it needs a tune up. but all easy enough things i can do over a weekend.

The steering pump we have is a little different; there's a solenoid for the EVO steering that you need to ensure is there on the new one, or swap it over to the new one.

The lines are available from RockAuto; I bought ACDelco lines, and they've been on for several years now.

I'd go thru the brakes carefully; the system should be gravity bled, and all the fluid replaced.

If it has ABS, be really careful about the reservoir, and don't let it get empty while you're bleeding it; search, there's a procedure for bleeding them properly, and in what sequence.

The lines that go to the calipers are getting old, and I've had one fail, as has someone else recently; I'd inspect all 4, and make sure there are no distortions or cracks.

RA has those cheap as well. (<20, last I bought any)

If it needs new brakes, consider the PBR brake upgrade; it's not a lot more expensive, and improves braking a lot.

You'll want that for the 3.73's, being able to stop can be important, lol.

I'm not sure it has the EVO valve in it; that looks just like where the EVO screws in.

The evo unscrews, and can be swapped to a pump that doesn't include it; just make sure it has the hole.

I know 03 gran marquis pumps don't have the hole.
