The car is in relatively rough shape and I've yet to be able to actually drive it other than moving it from here to there and have already gotten a ticket in it for failure to register while moving it. Luckily I got the car for free and only had to pay a fine of a couple hundred dollars against the title cuz the person hadn't titled the car. When the car was given to me they said it just needed a new fuel tank (which they had and it just needed to be put on) and a fuel pump and filter. I later came to find out that the brake master cylinder was out and in the process of buying one got ripped off $170 by an a-hole on the Fox T-bird / Cougar Forum luckily there was another guy on there who was an honest man that had one. After buying that I took it to the shop that I had done some business with and found out that it also needed rotors, pads, and calipers. So I'm in the process of gathering the parts I need to fix the brakes but have also been stock piling performance parts and contemplating performance upgrades.

Future Plans:
So far I've bought a new fuel rail, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, 5.0 throttle body, the kit to mount the throttle body, bigger injectors, a used low millage turbo, a new clutch, and parts for a custom cold air intake. Future plans are to get the brakes fixed, keep doing my research, clean up the engine, fix some other minor problems with the car, and put on all my performance parts.
