[QUOTE='95.0 stang]I could be wrong but I think that only applies to OBDII cars, which are 96 and newer.[/QUOTE]

This is what I understand as well.

Mil eliminators arent needed on fox bodies. Period.

Congradulations on the parts you need to install. It's painful everyday to see those parts just sitting there.

I recently made a guide for installing heads and cam w/ intake swap. Check it out.

It's in adobe acrobat format.

I think that's only true for O2s which are mounted after the cats, I guess they're there solely to moniter the effectiveness of the cats.
Happy wrenching!:cool:

JB- You noted a fresh rebuild. What was put into the rebuild? I'm looking to do a head/cam upgrade this winter but can't get any feedback on what will bolt on to a stock block. Everything I've read, it tells me I have to change/notch the piston for aftermarket heads for plug clearance. Did you change your pistons? Got any recommendations?

it depends on how big of a cam you plan on using. i got the stage one cam from TFS and TFS heads and they dont require any mods. I had the rebuild done through my teacher from when i went to vocational school and he set me up with all forged internals. just go to google or something and type in something like "mustang head install" ive done this to get an exact idea of what i will be doing this way there is almost no chance of running into problems in the process, and nothing that i have come accross says anything about notching pistons. again you only need to worry about that if you are using a pretty large cam. the cam i got is not an all out racing cam, i will be using this car on the street and i want to be able to enjoy it on the street also.

Thanks for sending me in the right direction. I was reading an article in MM&FF on APR's 185cc install. Didn't note what cam they were using.
