Re: Lone wolf

Re: Lone wolf

Well now you aren't alone Alex. The GTA is back on the road. And I forgot just how much FUN it is to ring that tach all the way to 7000rpm.

No videos, but I really do need to take a video of it rowing through the gears.

But here's a picture sitting next to the Focus.

Re: Lone wolf

No sir, no AC in it. Which is probably 75% of the equation. I like my Air Conditioned cabin.

LT1's are particularly painful to put A/C in. LS1's are easier.

I have looked into, and am considering moving to the Corvette accessory brackets which will let me run AC. The brackets are cheap. But then I have to change the various things over. Probably cost close to $750 to do it all.
