Finally back on the road

Hey guys, it's been about 2 years since I've been on here with all the problems I had with my 88 not running right. I don't know if anyone remembers but I had to replace the head gaskets and did a smog delete at the same time. After all of yalls help I finally got it running but not good. I took about a year and a half off of it to work on other stuff (95 Mustang GT). I am proud to say that I finally figured out why it didn't run right, wrong firing order. Fixed the firing order and set the time and it fired right up and now runs very good. So even though its been awhile, thanks again for all of yalls help.

Re: Finally back on the road

lol... so you must have been using the 5.0L H.O. firing order instead of the standard lopo order

Re: Finally back on the road

Not quite sure what I did to be honest. I'll just be glad to get it back from the exaust shop and start driving it again. It's getting new down pipes right now but when I have the money saved up I plan to do a full custom exhaust with flowmaster 40 series, under drive pulleys, custom hood and air intake. I think that will do me until I get the Mustang done.
