Hey Stoenr- Another old friend..... 2400 must be some kind of record. I can remember some of your step by step guides for mods. I think one of them was the short throw shifter. Sometimes my memory is in a fog, if you know what I mean:yelpleased:
I'll look closer at the coolant. Why would it be low with only about 7k on the car? Could there be a problem?

I doubt theres a problem, just figured when changing those hoses you had to lose some.

When I changed the hose from the overflow to radiator I lost a bit.
Only because I removed the old hose, went back into shop to measure origional against the replacement I got sidetracked, came out to car and had a big puddle under the car, ooops! No biggie, we stock every antifreeze thats out there, topped er off with valvoline/zerex GO5.



Edit, I see you didnt change any hoses. Not sure. most cars just dont lose antifreeze for no reason. Maybe yours wasnt as full from factory as Ive seen others

I have a question. (nice eagle cover, by the way!)

I have a Steeda strut tower brace and I'm wondering if the plenum cover will fit under it. Anyone have a similar setup?

I just got mine from Kevin from Brad's site today and installed it in about 5 minutes. All the studs were in the package along with some extra goodies. The cover looks great and I couldn't be happier.

A few elder neighbors watched as I installed the cover and thought I was crazy when I showed them what I was doing. After I was done they ALL commented on how much it dressed up the engine. Priceless!
