    Ok the track and car show season is winding down and it's time to start thinking about mods for next season. What do you have planned for this winter? New wheels and tires, engine, suspension, stereo upgrade?

    JRi Coil overs. MM is carrying them now. Hope we can put together a group buy from Filip. Also thinking full cage but budget may dictate
    Will be doing gut out for weight.

    Main items are cage and halo seat. Addressing a few other small items, too.

    Ford racing tow hooks if I can figure out how to weld them in. They didn't come with any instructions on where to cut the bumper beam and weld.

    They would look good together, but the MCRT has history and was used on the 1969 Boss program cars. I have a 12, so it should look nice with the C stripe.

    Do you sell BMO graphics?

    Just curious why you don't relocate the battery to the trunk? With your interior out that shouldn't be difficult.

    We did that (relocation) in our LeMons car and we have added about 30 lbs overall weight of heavy-gauge wire to accomplish that.
    Going to lightweight battery in the stock location drops 30 lbs overall, and saves me the purchase of the wire (about $75), and a battery relocation kit ($200-600 depending on source).

    I like this strategy and you may recall the first time we met we were told it wasn't worth the effort to relocate it to the trunk. ;)

    Yet I've still considered doing it several times... ;D The BFR kit makes it very easy to do.

    I've considered relocating the battery too but for the price, hassle, and extra weight I think I'll just add a lightweight battery in the stock location once mine goes bad :p

    Have a collection of upgrades in the Basement:

    Kooks Long Tube headers (1 7/8") plus Off Road H Pipe
    Solid Engine Mounts
    Stainless Clutch line

    Plan on ordering the Cortex Watts link - will talk to them and Rehagen re weld v's bolt in
    Will likely upgrade the Engine Harness -- threw a couple of camshaft position sensor codes during idle at my last track day, but no limp mode yet or codes during hot laps.
