    Hey guys,

    I've been doing some work here and there on my notch. I recently bought it this May. I've heard plenty of talk about the TFI module going bad on these cars all the time, so I figured I'd install the MRM mk3 TFI module relocation kit.

    It's recommended to buy a new TFI module when doing this upgrade. Well I bought a new one from Autonation Ford. I guess even new ones can be defective. After installing the kit, the car would start right up, run for a couple minutes then shut off. Sometimes it would start, then die right away. So I ended up installing the one that's been on the car.

    Autonation is sending me another one, I'll likely test it, make sure it works, then throw it in the glove box.

    Been doing a lot of other routine maintenance stuff. I'd like to eventually go through all the battery cables and grounds. The battery is mounted in the trunk. Lately it seems to crank very slowly. So I upgraded to a redtop optima battery with 800 CCA. The one previously in the car only had 580 CCA.

    I'd eventually like to install the little mtx 8" tube subwoofer I bought.

    I haven't driven the car that far yet, I want to make sure I can trust it and not get stranded. I'd like to eventually get it on a dyno and have the tune all checked out.


    Things I've done so far:

    TFI module relocation kit
    New redtop battery
    Plugs, wires, distributor cap
    Fuel filter
    Fuel pressure regulator
    IRS rear sway bar end links
    Front tie rods
    New driveshaft u joints
    New harmonic balancer
    Valve cover gaskets with arp studs
    New CD player
    Center console with cup holders
    85 style tail lights


    Couple other miscellaneous stuff. But I'll keep this thread going with any and all other upgrades I do.

    Man that color is gorgeous!

    And ya, thick film ignition. What a disaster. Wise move keeping a spare. I think you can get motorcraft from Napa and such.

    Thanks man! I didn't know Napa has them. Autonation should be sending my replacement soon. Nice thing is they are only about 1 1/2 hours away from me. :)
