Fury... 94 ST...
I bought her about 6 years ago, and have just recently been looking into into building her.
She's currently my DD, but a slow project on the side as well (yes, pun intended as she is an ST..)
I don't have a firm plan for her engine swap as of yet, but there has been a lot of talk of different ways I could go with her lately.
As of today, she has almost 209k 212k on her original engine/trans.. and just made it back from her first trip to the Dragon.

Like I said, it'll be a slow build, so bare with me.

Here's Fury close to the the beginning.. pretty much ALL stock

Hopefully I'll get the fogs wired and put in this week, and maybe a little more work to her.. like fixing that front crank seal leak....
Fog brackets didnt line up correctly, so I'll be selling them shortly.
Front crank seal is fixed as of a couple weeks ago

Do the timing belt while in there. I had enough tools to do it in the parking lot lol.

Well, the front crank seal was replaced today... that was a fun job... and so far no more leaking oil, so that should be taken care of :D
The transmission mount was also replaced, which has noticeably cut down the vibration Fury had before.
All in all a pretty productive day.

And a guest appearance by this (she's sitting at the shop)

Party to put her back together sometime anyone?? ----no, seriously... :D




I think the next thing on the list will be to upgrade the suspension. Any suggestions are welcome :) Not sure when this will happen, but sometime soonish I'm sure

Have a good night everyone!

so most know Fury broke down right before my trip to Chicago this weekend.... had to had her towed to the shop... the collective guess was the head gasket.......



Got the news today....

Engines gone. Completely :worried:
She had 212,7xx miles


Here's the worse news, I dont have the money to replace the engine. and I dont have the money to get another car. While it'd be good for this to happen if I had the new engine sitting here ready to go, the reality is, I just dont have one. I just put a grand down for an apartment, and the people want almost another 2 grand on August 1st.


So, for now, I am without a car.. and Fury is pretty much dead until further notice....... :sadcry:

I do have a running 7afe. The only thing you would need is to use your existing wiring as the wiring (to include grounds) is garbage. The hard/expensive part would be getting it to you. It would be coming from a stickshift car, however if you swap your existing electrical over, it should work. I'll get at ya when I get back into reality if you decide you want to work something. And hit the pops up for some $ yO.

Considering you'll be taking the train to school/any internship daily, you won't really need a temp car. The public transportation system in Chicago is a lot better than most other cities, even if most of us complain about it incessantly ;) We'll try to help you out in the meantime. I'd save the money and put it towards Fury rather than a temp car.

Well, I guess it's been a while since I've updated this.....

Fury is back on the road for about a year now. Brought her up to Chicago late last August. Despite all my plans for her, she currently has a rebuilt 7a. Which works for now, seeing as I'm driving around 100 miles a day for work.

Justin and I also spent some time last week replacing the shift gate.. as the original was shattered into the console a while back. That was much more of a bitch to replace than I thought it would be... and there doesn't seem to be any really useful how to write ups that I could find for an auto shifter with an overdrive button on the knob (<-- I should have taken pics along the way and written one myself.... but I didn't think of that until after it was done).

No huge plans for her right now, saving money for the wedding, so that kind of takes away from the car money right now.

I utilize an old Pringles can as my "Spider Removal and Relocation System." I then transport the offending eight legged trespassers to a new, more desirable habitat. Such as my back yard, which is stocked with a plentiful amount of prey for the budding predator.

I don't believe it is my place to kill one if it is of no danger to me. If one if the animals eats it, that is just nature. But I just relocate them.

Definitely not. I pulled over and stopped the car before I jumped out. Luckily Justin was w me both times, bc he had to kill it before I would get back in the car.

I utilize an old Pringles can as my "Spider Removal and Relocation System." I then transport the offending eight legged trespassers to a new, more desirable habitat. Such as my back yard, which is stocked with a plentiful amount of prey for the budding predator.

I don't believe it is my place to kill one if it is of no danger to me. If one if the animals eats it, that is just nature. But I just relocate them.

I do the same thing ha. They don't bother me, I just don't want them in my house

Eh. If they're in my house or car. I'll relocate them in a similar fashion. If they're in my shoes or jumping out from somewhere, then I murder everything in a 50 meter radius.
