Who knows, it could end up as a turbo 2.3. Definitely won't be a stock 2.3.

----------

Anyway, I bought a silver cluster from Chris and a silver Explorer HVAC panel from Morgan yesterday. I get to meet Chris tomorrow as he drives his new truck from Minnesota to Virginia and he's bringing the cluster.

Haha yeah that would help me out!

My buddy Roger is giving me two Flowmaster 40s that come off of his Mustang. Only going to use one, but I'll have the other sitting around. I bought a 2" to 2.5" pipe expander for the new muffler.

Hung out with Chris and went to a shitty Denny's at a truck stop lol. Did my first burnout in the new truck. The glob made me do it.

Got some parts to throw on soon. Picked up the Flowmasters from Roger and the cluster will go in soon.

Literally haven't done a thing to the new truck yet. I fixed the speedometer issue and got another center cap so I have all four now. The mud flaps are still on the truck though. Planning on painting the stock wheels gloss black and leaving the caps chrome. That'll probably happen next weekend. Also going to get some drop springs and an axle flip kit and cut a coil out of the springs and cheat a 3/4 drop until I get beams. Once I have beams, I'll sit 6/4 and I'll order a bolt in notch and get really low out back.

that's what I did with my rims. Our trucks are the same year and color, so I think that would look sick on yours.

The chrome actually looks good on your truck, but Imo on most other colors the chrome just looks bad
