Not necessarily, I think it worked just like the R and Q codes on the
'stangs ... where the R code was the "ram air" version that did have a
shaker scoop, or at least a functional scoop and the Q codes may have had a
scoop, but it was non-functional ...

This was an AACA (Antique Automobile Club of America) meet, national meet
actually, so everything there was original down to the bolt color and type
... this guy was also the original owner. He had ordered it as a "sleeper"
that is why it has the "poverty" hubcaps and is not very flashy ... its also
Black Jade if you can't quite make out the color :)

A very beautiful car in real life, the pics just don't do the color or the
car justice ...

The last address I had for him was :

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://users.erols.com/wrljet/engines/

but now that's down as well, all that's there is the mustang club homepage,
and even his regular homepage is gone (www.wrljet.com) ... uh oh, that was a
great source, if anyone finds it, lemme know ...

Bummer, that's a changeover year, so I can't say for sure ... the 'stangs
I'm pretty sure did, but that's the HO motor and not sure if the others had
changed yet or not ...

You can bump the timing on it,just like any other motor, only instead of
pulling the vacuum advance you just pull a "spout" connector ... some decent
headers and a much larger exhaust than what the Ranger had stock will help
it breathe. A nice cam would wake it up pretty well too ..

The big difference is the Cam, this also affects the firing order, so if you
change besure and switch the rest out too ... there was a discussion on one
of the Mustang boards about this a while back, I'll see if I can dig up all
the differences they came up with ...


"If you want to turn it into an HO, you need to change the upper intake, tb,
and egr spacer, the cam, and computer. "

Ok, sorry for the ot, but this is my brother, i could not retype the email
that my dad sent, so i am just copying it:


How the Navy Killed my 17 year old son!

so friday morning, i send my 17 year old son, off with the navy recruiter,
to take him to indianapolis, for processing into the navy...
so, they drop him off at a hotel at about 5pm, UNSUPERVISED,,,, remember,
he's only 17, a minor,,,
and he goes swimming, and drowns....

so, i go througjh a bunch of phone calls,,,
and get ahold of the Casualty Assistance Officer in Connecticut,

and they tell me SORRY.
Sorry? That'S IT!!!!
they are not even going to send out a Chaplain to help me cry
this is just not right.
what do i do?
this is just not right.
