Update!

It's been about a year or so since I last logged on here.
and alot has changed.. Im only 17 so I do what i can with little money :]

1997 Ext cab 2wd 5spd Black
mods to date:

Exterior:
20% window tint
window visors
removed factory purple pinstripe
painted all trim black
Superwhite aftermarket fog lights (BRIGHT!)
new goodyear GT tires

Interior:
Explorer guage cluster w/ tach (miles matched to origional) :]
blue led guage lights
blue led dash lights
pioneer premire series deck w/ ipod hookup
kenwood 10 inch sub w/200 watt amp
& not to forget the "black ice" air freshner :]

Engine:
Custom Side pipes
2 1/4" pipe to flowmaster 40 series dual exit just before passenger
side rear tire
Black tips to match body
K&N air filter

I might be forgetting a few things. overall Im happy with what I've done so far. Im forced into driving this because my parents wont let me have a car.. so im kind of debating what more money I put into it.

my thoughts are dropping in a 3.8 sc motor (found one dirt cheap!)
but dont know much about ford swaps. any comments thoughts or advice is appriciated!





Will post up more pics later, and a video if you want to hear the exhaust

Man I miss Everett, WA. I lived in Lake Stevens for all my life and just moved to San Diego. I think a 3.8 SC motor would be really sick. Maybe someone here could help you with that
