    Could it not be a flaky MAP sensor? I could see a flaky map sensor not reading properly if exposed to large fluctuations in vacuum when cold. It would be odd, but we are dealing with old designed...

    Been there, done that. You can buy that elbow and a nylon to nylon compression fitting at most parts stores, prolly run you $20. Alternatively, get as much of the nylon line off a junkyard car as you...

    Yep. That thing needs a set of plugs bad. As far as wires, whenever you buy them, get a set for a '96-'98 Mustang GT, NOT for a '97 CV/GMQ. Trust me. The Mustang wires are slightly shorter than OE...

    Meh. I like the Continental ornament a little better. Coincidentally(well maybe not), it looks a lot like the Aero ornament. I was toying with the idea of changing mine out for one off a early FWD...

    You only have 1 side of the exhaust hooked up still, right? I had an idle surge in both my '97 and '98 when the flange between the cat and H-pipe broke on only one side. I just assume its due to the...

    Parts stores usually carry both the coated steel and the NiCopp. I have a bit of both on my Town Car. Like the OP in this thread, once I fixed one line, another popped, and I later discovered the...

    ^^Sure you could. Since the seat covers aren't exactly tight, you shouldn't have any problem adding a bit of extra foam to them. I'd also consider adding a strip of foam where the side bolsters would...

    If you have that splitter block, then you do not have ABS. On an ABS car the 2 lines from the master run straight into the ABS block, it then splits it into the 3 or 4 lines that feed the rest of the...

    Yeah, the side hop from a solid axle vehicle will be reduced by firming up the rear suspension, and knowing you the shocks in that truck are from 1985.

    I think if I had an early box, one of the 1st things I'd end up doing is retrofitting a more modern fuse box. I'm partial to the battery junction box in a Aero Town Car (different than a CV/GMQ), it...
