Could you run a lower base pressure and use the shorter version? 70psi is the cap but can go higher if you have boost reference.

I could totally get by with the smaller ones, but I already have these and I don稚 feel like losing 100 dollars flipping them (they have been installed so not returnable).    Hopefully I値l get the changes made this week sometime and it値l all fit again.   :)

Lots of cool stuff getting done in here. I'm impressed with all the electronic work you've been doing. Making the car all very modern. Its the retro mustang Ford should have built.  ;)

Seems you have the same problem as me... More=Bigger=Better.  Well, except when it comes to women.  :D

LMAO, well I got the big ones for a good deal, so I paid the same as the small ones, and I mean, why would I -NOT- get the big ones!   LOL    Now I know.

Anyway, strut tower is redone to clear, all seems good now.  :)   I also put in my force-feedback steering computer and it seems to work nicely.   I'm going to set the assist to the "low" level I think as it's still a touch overboosted, but otherwise it's a big improvement.    It does have an issue though.   When I turn the car off the steering has a seizure and turns left.    Not sure WTF is up with that.   The old unit didn't do that.    My going theory is that these units have a "zero" or "home" point that I'm not in and it's trying to get there on shut down.    It seems to try to go to the same place every time.    It's not that hard to stop it from doing it, but it's weird and bothersome.   I emailed the vendor about it, and I'll see what they say, and perhaps I'll let it "center" itself and see if that stops the bad behavior.  If so I'll just adjust my center point on the steering to be where it wants to live.

Anywho, progress!   :)   Oh, and I bought a '69 Camaro chin spoiler.    It does not fit, but it looks good.   I think I'm going to make one out of aluminum that apes the '69 part style but fits my bumper.
