What do I need for the Exploder/GT PI Swap?

I just got a 97 Fuel rail. Did I need to pull anything else off that car?

And the other day I was stupid. I thought you had bought the 97 motor to get parts off of. You car IS a 97. Ha. Mine is a 95 so I assumed yours was too.

95 SC 5-speed The Toy in Storage now.
95 SC Auto Newest storage queen.
91 Festiva 1.3L baby 5 speed
03 Crown Vic Sport 4.6... driver
10 Flex Brick Twin Turbos

No idea. I don't know what my '97 has that your '95 doesn't. If you search the engine forum, someone put together a pretty comprehensive list of what you need.

It's only funny until someone gets hurt.

Yep. It just took a couple of tries to get it right. I'm debating on bringing the 'Bird or the Cutlass on Friday. Either way, I'm racing.

As much as I like the Cutlass I would rather see the Bird run down the track. What tires do you have for the Bird? Have you done the hub swap, if so I would let you use my slicks to make a pass or two.

No hub swap. I run 245/45 Kumhos.

If Chris doesn't race his car he could bring his Nitto's for you to use.

Thanks for the offer, and for offering Chris' stuff.

I prefer to run at the track in the same configuration I use on the street. I'll bring my air tank and play with pressures a little bit. My real problem is just experience. I've never drag raced a stick shift. Seat time is what I need.

They're predicting rain tonight and in the morning. That could easily evolve into tomorrow morning and evening. Cross your fingers.
