  • It seems to be running good, but every once in a while it seems to miss but clears itself up. I ordered a code reader so I can see what's going on because I have never checked any of the codes since the swap.
    Also something wierd, when I start the car I hear my fuel tank pop(think like oil canning) and I drive the car and shut it of and the fuel tank will again pop again once or twice. Kind of like a pop can. Hard to explain. But I believe it's pressurized. I need to double check because we bypassed the charcoal canister system for the evap system. And also need to check the vent tube in the tank to see what's going on. I am going to take it around the block with the cap off and see if that helps.


    Man time flys.

      • That a good looking little man! I am going to do a body swap soon I have a 87 coupe that was a four cylinder then switched to a carb v8. Now its a roller I want to put everything from my 89 in it. Any susgestions? Tips? Lessons learned.

        • If you can have them side by side. My donor car or cars were not close. Manuals. Get the good ford manuals. I have the 88 and I believe 89 I can scan and mail you. Take pictures take notes whatever you can to make it easier on yourself. All in all it's pretty straight forward. Get rid of the 4 cyl wiring and replace with the v8 wiring. In your case you shouldn't have any cutting. Good luck and post your progress.

          • Oh yea. You can't enjoy the car while its collecting dust. Meaning get out there and work on it until it's done. They are more enjoyable if you can drive them.

            • If you plugged the line that went to the charcoal canister, you no longer have a vent. Unplug it and see what happens.

              • They both have a thick layer of dust on them so I know all about not enjoying them. I am dragging out my shop improvement projects so they can be side by side kind of. There is a load bearing wall between them but they will be in the same building. I hope to work on it Saturday.

                • Its Been quite awhile since I have updated but not much has changed. Basically been driving the car and enjoying it. Dad and I followed along on drag week a couple days without problems and had a blast.

                  ​Making plans for 2016: So far the plan is to follow the Rocky Mountain Race Week and visit with my sister out in Denver.
                  So its time for some upgrades. I purchased some new composite brake pads to see if that will help. Also plan freshening up the interior a little before the trip. Also I bought some wheels that I have wanted for a while. For $100 I couldn't pass them up.

                  A lot of little things that I want to do before July and so little time.

                  • Are those the +05 bullit wheels? Those look really good on a Fox, especially a 4 eye.

                    I was parked a spot or two over from your car at Gateway on Friday of Drag Week. I was wondering why it looked familiar.

                    • Good looking 4-eye with TT to boot. I can never find anything at a REASONABLE price. Around here everyone wants your first born plus cash for a trashed roller. Congrats on a great find.

                        I have a couple trashed rollers that will be for sell soon, no TT though.

                          Around me people are asking on average $2500 for a roller with no interior no glass mismatched wheels no dog house and severely "vented" quarters. It just boggles my mind how people think a run of the mill fox literally needing everything, if not a trip to the scrap yard, will sell for anything close to that price. Most are not even salvageable as they look like they have sat outside as parts cars for most of their life.

                              I thought I would list mine for a $1000 once I get all the parts I want off. I would say mine are a little better than what you are seeing. You can some times find ragged out runners around here for 2500.

                              Dan, you should get the stang out and take it to Mustang Week track night at Darlington, might sale.
