I got free delivery yesterday. Think I'm gonna leave them black for now, but I like the green rings too.

Ran club comp up st rocks and valleys this weekend, rig did great minus the fact it ran like crap the whole time....

Gonna swap in a stock 5.8 and a whole new harness hopefully in the next couple of weeks. I'm done messing with the mustang motor for now.

I just want a rig that will work when I want it to.

Yup, me too. It has been slowly getting worse and worse. I think there are multiple things going on and after last weekend I've had it.

Yea your motor issues are totally ruining the ability of your rig right now......I can't wait to see how well it works when you have a motor that is willing to do what you ask of it.

If it was a Ford, sure. I like how my 5.4 runs, if they were smaller I'd put one of those in.

I felt bad, those drivability issues were present the entire time. While I joke that the only way I can keep up with kyle is because of his running issues and say he can't fix it, I hope he does. I could tell you were getting pretty discouraged the whole time.

Drop that 351 one in it, leave it stock and run it.

I say put a 4BT cummins in it. Then it could be your daily driver..

NOT...

Throw a stock 100,000, mile 5.8 in it and beat the snot out of it.
