Default My next project

I might as well bring the news to the forums. My parents picked up a Fox back in August that they were going to try and surprise me with for Christmas. Well after I almost bought a different car they decided to tell me about it. So this gift has now turned into my new money pit. Don't be like Pedro and say I'm spoiled or any of that shit. I work, and I'm paying for everything. So piss off. Moving on.. Here's a list of mods from the CL ad:
Lowered
saleen wing
308
10:1 compression
Trick flow stage 3 cam
Ported and polished gt 40 heads and upper and lower intake
24 lb injectors with matching maf sensor
Cold air intake
Taylor made 10.4mm wires
Msd 6a ignition box
Flex fan
No ac
Offroad h pipe with flowmaster 40 series
Bbk equal length headers
Short throw shifter
Adjustable clutch cable
King cobra clutch
3:73 gears in rear
Sub frame connectors
Rear sway bar
5"monster tach
And oil pressure guage, temp guage and amp guage in center of councel
New radiator
New speed sensor
New fuel pump
New fuel guage
New fuel pressure regulator
New spark plugs
New battery

Problems:
speedometer doesnt work but i do have the cable to fix it
doors do not lock
primed in color

My plans for the car, fix all the little issues, get tags/inspection for it, and drive it until I run out of money. When winter hits I won't be driving it as much but when spring rolls around she'll hopefully be getting some kind of paint and maybe some new shoes. And the Ranger isn't going anywhere. I'm just going to have to work a little bit more now to keep up with all of my payments. I haven't even seen the car yet so here's the only two pictures I have from the CL ad:



Let me know what you guys think.

Considering this thing will need to be ran on Premium, the Ranger is still the main vehicle lol. And I've said my goodbyes to my money.

Most everybody here has said goodbye to their money when they bought a Ranger, especially those of us with 3.0 and 4.0 gas suckers.

Looks like a cool project Tyler!

IDK about your truck but mine isn't too bad on gas. I get 19-23 on the interstate depending on how I drive.

Little bit of an update:



I've been working on fixing all of the little problems. I've fixed most of the little electrical issues. All the lights work now, signals work, hazards work, and the only thing left is to get a bulb for the dome light and get the gauge cluster lights to work. Once I get a horn wired up, she'll be ready for inspection and be getting tagged.
