    Oh; I bought a strut tower coil mounting bracket (for '86-'93 Mustangs) to use on the CV. Hopefully I can mount it off the passenger side cylinder head somehow; if not, I'm out $20

    Mounted the coil on the passenger side cylinder head using the Mustang strut tower bracket. A little jenky-looking, but it works.

    I was feeling ambitious and attempted to install the upper intake; and that's where the progress ended. The '85 TB cable I got was way too long, so I took it out and re positioned it; and it was still too long (meaning it extended well beyond the TB lever). So, I took that out, which took a long time because the replacement cable has a plastic collar; which dug into the retaining collar by the gas pedal. I put the original cable back in, but routed it differently; now it's too long (when it previously fell far short of the TB lever). I played with the cable bracket (the one that hangs off the TB) some yesterday and then other stuff became a priority. Hope to have it all sorted out this coming weekend.

    Since I couldn't find a tubing bender to fit the trans dipstick tube; I got a Lokar dipstick and installed it. Also figured out the throttle cable deal; which allowed me to install the upper intake. I have to finish plumbing the hoses that go into the intake; but that part is pretty much done.
