    I went with Mcleod, the TOB went bad and put it back together and still felt so firm. So said screw Spec. So far I love the clutch now. I have pretty much gone thru car and fixed everything mechanical I could. Only other issue I see is driver side valve cover spark plug seals are seeping into plug hole so that's next, but I think it can wait till winter. Good though I am glad to have it back and wish I never sold it. how bout you?

    Good choice man, McCleod is what I was gonna put in it. Glad you're getting her straightened out. I'm trying to hold out on another car until next year, been playing with the truck. It got a new turbo a few weeks ago, screams like a banshee now! Did I see your SHO for sale on craiglist?

    Rueben, I am kicking idea around of selling SHO, I will miss it but just don't make sense to keep with as many miles I drive a year.

    I think I am going to pass on ICC. I am waiting for OEM clutch cable and new firewall adjuster. I want to make sure clutch is adjusted right so I don't have to do another clutch in a 3 years or 12K

    Are there any good spots in or near Lincoln that has long straight aways that would facilitate datalogging runs to around 130 mph?

    Welcome- what color is your car?

    This part of the forum seriously has died. Everybody is using facebook now. There is a club in Omaha called "Midwest Stangs" and they do a ton of fun stuff. I think its like 25 bucks to join the club but in my opinion its well worth it. They do poker runs, car shows, track days, ect. I need to renew my membership soon I've been putting it off until spring.

    What do you Ford guys (coyote especially) think about 402 Dyno in Omaha. Do you think they are competent tuners for the coyote platform?

    They have done a lot of the guys around here. I mean just wait and see when all the normal guys start posting in here about their crazy builds. A lot of awesome cars on here have been tuned by them.

    New here and new to the cobra scene but live in millard. Would love to get out with some others for sure so id be down. As for the black hill thats sound amazing always wanted to go, would need few weeks to request time off and make sure I could spare the gas and fun money for it.

    Why not take your car to The Shop and have Chad tune it?

    I've only been able to ask a few people, but the general consensus I got was that Chad was not to be trusted with tuning a coyote as he is more of a chevrolet guy.
