Rounded up some stuff to keep me busy this weekend...

Thanks to all the good info on this board about coolant, I was able to source out some CAT ELC. So, I picked up four Gal of the concentrate and one gal of the diluted from the local dealer. I just wished I learned about this stuff before paying the dealership to flush my system just to refill with the Motorcraft garbage


Learned about the fuel pressure regulator revision/mod from the good posts here as well. I am running a innovative street tune, and I figured this mod would be some cheap insurance to make sure the fuel system is where it should be.


I didn't do my homework on the front grille swap. I thought it was as simple as just swapping mine for this one. Now, I have to figure out if I really want to spend the money on doing it the right way; getting the bumper, brackets, and headlights... or getting a grille that is cut on the bottom.

I cant tell what kind of Cat ELC that is, but that doesnt look like what i use. The gallon on the left looks like a 50/50 mix.

yeah, thats the rite stuff. Same part # as what i got anyway. The yellow label vs. white label must be a new style label or something.
