Well just to update, I've been spending a few hours here and there on taking the mystique apart and i'm slowly making progress. The engine should be ready to be pulled in a week or so as long as there are no setbacks!
Well now that I bought a cougar for a daily driver I can finally get to work on the Mystique. I am going to pull EVERYTHING electrical and not reuse anything. That way there is no chance of the problem carrying over to the new setup. I'll probably be pulling the 2.5 next month some time after finals week. The build will be N/A and I'm looking for around 230whp. Should be a fun ride when she's finished!
Well first I want to thank the shop that looked at my car. They didn't charge me a dime and even towed my car home for free, so I went over and gave them 30 bucks to buy everyone lunch. When I got home to find my car sitting in my driveway I said "what the hell" and turned the ignition. Of course the car fires right up and ran for over an hour straight without stalling one. I tugged at every wire I could find and nothing cause the car to die, so I no longer am concerned about a possible shor
Where to start, where to start...
I've owned my Mystique for a little over one and a half years now and I really can't complain too much about my experience. I'll admit, I hated it for a while when I first got it, mostly because I had to teach myself to drive a stick. Slowly as time went on, it grew on me and now here I am today, getting ready to bring her home from a shop so I can fix her. Yes you read that right!
Anyway on to the mods. The first mod I did was the open K&N filter.
