    I did the Dorman swap on my '08 car, but did not have it long thereafter, so I can't speak to the longevity of those parts.

    I do know that the long bolt on the t stat housing snapped off in the...

    Not sure how I ever missed this thread. I have always loved the 2 door sedan Fairmonts, but they sure are hard to find.

    Interestingly, there is a guy here in CT that has a pale yellow Futura with...

    $5K is absurd for that car. On the high end I would expect to pay 2000-2500; he is out to lunch. Honestly the body rust is enough to turn me off. I purchased a pristine (and I mean pristine) '06...

    Alot of good points here.

    I will echo the sentiments of others. I bought an '06 GM last December and the EATC defaulted to defrost within 6 months. $3 in o rings and about a half hour of my...

    One time I thought it would be a grand idea to restore a late 70s Ariens snow thrower. The old machines are "unbeatable". Procured a decent used one and went through it; the only mechanical issue...

    Gears are the biggest obstacle for you; whether you decide to supercharge or not, its the first place to start. They will make more practical use of the cars current power through torque...

    Recently replaced the brakes on the car (rotors were original), and noticed that the upper ball joint boots were ripped. They are still "tight", but UCAs, LBJs and tie rod ends are en route today. ...

    Preservation!

    Lately I have found that I am itching for another truck project. Unfortunately for me the dentsides have gone wild in price over the past 18 months. :(

    Soon though. I miss a...

    He's not active on here anymore, but mrltd's Country Squire was an autocross savage with a much milder build; actually mostly stock parts.

    Just a thought, I put a brass valve in my heater core feed hose. I left it closed most of the time unless I knew I needed heat/ defrost. I spent a lot of time at or near the 6250 limiter without an...

    Magnaflow 2.5" offset on my 4.6 with no downstream cats. It is a custom bent 2.5" cat back with a crossover.

    That sucks the tranny is noisy. T5s are a fairly simple beast in my experience, and no doubt in your wheelhouse.

    Sounds to me like its not a 9"; its an 8.8 with 9" ends on it. Eliminates the need for c clips, and uses press on axle bearings.
