Drove the car at lunch today and smelled gas. Looks to be leaking. Not sure if it is the filler neck or the grommet in the tank. Just going to replace everything as soon as this tank is empty.

I feel the same way. Can't wait for warmer weather. I am really wanting to row gears with the Bullitt. And I have been collecting tons of parts for the 95 GT, but can't do anything with them.

Yes I would open up the upper intake to make room for the 65mm TB.

Aluminum heads are not in my budget. That is why I was looking into the Explorer GT40s.
