I just stumbled across this thread today. You've done a great job so far getting this think back to where it should be. As to what you said about being a little disapppointed power wise. I get it. I read all about these Terminators before I bought mine. I also have a 68 GTO and a 69 Camaro, so I know what power should feel like. My car was bone stock when I bought it, and I too was a little let down about the power. BUT, once you start to mod, it will respond like no other Mustang you have ever owned. A nice free flowing catback, a JLT intake, upper pulley and a tune, that will bump you up an additional 75 RWHP, or possibly a little more. Then when you get used to that, get your Eaton ported or just get a twin screw, that is when you see what all the Terminator fuss is about. With regular tires, like a Nitto 555, a ported Eaton with an upper and lower pulley or a twin screw tire will smoke the tires at 60mph. It's gonna be fun watching you mod this thing, I'm excited for you! Get to it man!

Well its good to know I'm not the only one that has felt this way! I can't wait to start slapping some parts on this thing, but I have to find a decent job that will work with my school schedule. There's a lot of oil field stuff out here, but they aren't flexible. Plus I just got the GT back

This, when I got on it a little bit, I was doing about 60 and put the peddle down to pass a car, it lit the tires up so fast it scared the ever loving shit out of me. I didn't expect coming straight out of my mach and into the cobra.

mine has been a bit of a pain since i bought it also.... i made the drive home though. i woulda been pissed if that had happened to me but you got it for a price though. when i got mine home i realized the pinoin seal was toast and then not even 100 miles after fixing that my alternator went out and then the weekend i got it dyno tuned my TOB blew into pieces and recked my clutch.... ive put maybe 2500 miles on my car since i bought it at the end of june lol and in that time ive driven it back and forth from odessa to dallas twice lol

mac sounds AMAZING in person. if i switch out my borla setup itll be for mac. im kinda on the fence about borla. loud as hell and sounds super good under normal accel but im not sure i like it about 3k rpms and when im really in the throttle.
3-4k rpm is the best part i think

Thanks man!

A little update I suppose....The Prochamber is driving me insane. It rattles on shit down under the car because of the different crossmember placement. Its gotten so bad that I almost don't want to drive it. So it looks like I'll be modifying it to fit better once I can get some 2.5" pipe to work with. I also won the giveaway that VaderGT had, so I'm much closer to correcting the paint. Basically all I need now are a polisher and and the crap to go with it like pads, etc. And lastly, it looks like one of the rubber exhaust hangers finally rotted out as my pipes sit a little crooked, so I'll be replacing all those sometime soon.

That's about it for now, just got another semester of school wrapped up, finals suck. Hopefully I'll be able to make some progress on something pretty soon

Thanks blink! I'm doing my best, just wish I had more money to put into her

No updates at this point :/ I was gonna try to get a lot done over winter break from school but I went to Cali for a couple weeks and that cut into my time. Trying to decide on fender stripes....red or flat black. And also the battery light has started coming on intermittently

Another bump, I have a dilemma that I want y'all's opinions on!! My birthday is on Friday, so my mom offered to get me parts or whatever. So my question is would you rather get an mgw, jlt, or dyno tune. I have a tuner, and would probably be able to get my hands on a pulley...

If your still taking request on secondary colors, a burnt orange like the longhorns color would look sick on a black termi.

Yeah I'm still looking for ideas. I've thought about that, but I haven't been able to find paint in that color. I think it'd look amazing, especially with a little metallic in the paint
