    The coupe is officially out of the storage unit for good! Time to do a little work. IMG_20210406_175753734.jpg

    Is that hood cutout stock? Or was it added to accommodate an intake or something? I haven't seen an air cleaner like that, even on a 2.3T.

    Also I wish I knew why all these other four eyes look good, but I look at mine and it looks terrible. Part of it might be being a notch.

    Yes it is cut out stock. This is also the stock engine, stock air cleaner, engine is a stock 2.3T.
    And it is a notch to. Can't imagine your 4-eye not looking good as a notch.

    I'll be damned. I've seen the old carbed NA 2.3s with the air cleaner there, but I always thought the early carbed 2.3Ts had the intake and filters near the passenger front corner like the EFI ones. I never knew the early ones had the turbo on the cold side. That's crazy.

    Drove it a little today. Re-gapped the plugs, did the yearly oil change and replaced the o2 sensors. IMG_20210409_174911641.jpg

    Post some pics. My first car was an '86 5.0 coupe back in 1989, one of the ones I wish I still had.

    Looks really nice, Brady. Why isn't it stored at your new shop?

    I drove mine both Saturday and Sunday. Perfect weather and she’s running great. I love this car. Next Sunday is supposed to be great weather too, I can’t wait to drive her again.

    Looks like she is sleeping in style!
    Be glad you had your floor done when you did, the price has really gone up.

    Feels great having them in a nicer place. And very little too no dust on them! Having them at my garage or storage unit would accumulate a coat of dust.

    Damn wasn't aware that prices went up. But not surprised as everything else is.

    I am looking forward to being in your shoes. My building is dried in and waiting on the floor. Can't wait.

    Scott that's awesome, your shop is massive compared to mine.

    I look forward to seeing pictures of it once the floor is done.

    Daily broke so I promoted the notch to daily. The notch has since gotten a boost leak and looks like it blew out the compressor seal on the turbo. I think it managed to foul a couple plugs from the sound/feel of it. No idea where to get a seal kit for an HE200.

    Prior to that I got a good chunk of the exhaust fabricated on the four door fox. Anyone else struggle with the passenger side exhaust pipe and starter? Seems like if the starter is in you can't really get the nut on the stud for the exhaust flange, and if the exhaust is on it's a nightmare to get the top starter bolt in and started. Anyone else run into that? It's an 84 GT engine, stock manifolds, C5 transmission, stock starter.
