    As expected, Maximum Motorsport products always are better than whatever they replaced. I got the new cable in last night and it made a huge difference. The pedal actuation is much lighter and smoother than before. Only complaint I have is that the mounting bracket for the cable doesn't line up with the old one because of the difference in cable length. Not a major issue, I'll resolve it easily.

    Haven't driven the car yet, it is still up in the air for an oil change. Hope to have it back on the road tonight for a test drive.

    Not much to report lately. I've just been driving the car as the weather allows. So far everything seems to be ok with the engine, no weird noises and it's running the best it ever has. I'm really hoping the stuff I found in the filter was just left over from break in. I'll get some more miles on it, then drain the oil and see what it says.

    I took advantage of LMRs 4th of July sale and got a few things like door rollers and a new turn signal switch. Provided the motor is ok, I'm going to work on doing a 3G alt upgrade and electric fans. I want to get the A/C working on the car, so the fans will be part of that.

    Just need this humidity to go away so I can stand to be in the garage again lol.

    Amen to that! Monsoon season sucks because of the humidity. I've been struggling to get much done because I just get too hot. Glad to hear that everything is working well right now.

    When you do the 3g upgrade, i would make sure you use a quality wiring kit with big wires. I used the LMR 4-gauge kit with great success. I would also recommend the contour dual fan setup of the lincoln setup. contour gives you so much more room to work with under the hood.

    Definitely. I've got a swamp cooler that usually keeps the garage reasonable inside, but not right now lol. At least we have winter to look forwards to now!

    For sure on the wiring. I look forwards to getting as much of the old wiring out of the car as I can. All the old charge wires are going away and replaced with at least 4 gauge, new grounds too. Unfortunately for me, all the kits LMR makes are for 86+ cars with the battery on the driver side, so I'll have to make my own cables.

    I'll look into the contour fans, I had been planning to build my own shroud and controller, but that may be the more affordable path.
