My HO/T5 Conversion...
is complete. A few very minor details left, but they're not even worth mentioning.
Bottom line: it's fast. The T5 REALLY woke it up and the GT40P motor is incredibly strong. I LOVE the dual exhaust and stainless headers.
I'm picking up 3.73s and a traction lock this weekend, to rebuild the rear end a week from this coming Saturday, to help liven things up. Even on the stock 2.73s, I absolutely smoked a modified V6 Mustang ten minutes after I got it running right.
150ish miles on the motor in three days. I've been trying to come off the throttle a bit so I don't warp the new clutch, but it's not easy when it sounds SO GOOD while I'm laying into it. I'm not launching or speed shifting, so hopefully things will be okay.
