    I didn't make the GGP this year.

    Oh well.

    I put new front pads and a rotor on the left front since I smoked off all the pad hot dogging it to work last week......
    It stops without any bad noise.

    Broke 190k. Getting there. Should definitely be over 200 by the end of the year. Or in another 6 months...

    Might have a lead on a 5-Speed for cheap....

    Sorry you missed it.
    A T-5 is less parasitic. I don't know if TKOs are as they have heavier parts...

    As it turns out, he's going to keep it. It's a T-5, and he was a 302, so meh.

    Nothing really to report. I keep putting gas in it and it keeps going well.
    Going to need tires shortly. I'm undecided. Do I retread the HPPs? Or do I use the 17" Mustang GT wheels? I like both. The difference in cost is minimal. They also weigh the same. However, the Mustang wheels are wider (245 vs 225) so they would not be as efficient as the HPPs.
    I guess I should take some pics and do a comparision.

    Currently at 405 miles on 3/4 tank of gas. Not too bad.

    I'm not sure.
    I really like the look of the Mustang wheels. I don't the look of the HPPs, but I think the Mustang wheels look better, especially since it's lowered.
    I'm kinda stuck. It is an efficiency build, so I should do the HPPs. But then I'm not the biggest fan of HPPs...
