      Cool, thanks for the tip! I will need to do this when I get my AMSOIL transmission fluid in a few weeks.

      Also.. was delving into my old posts and emails and such... For anyone who happens to read this and plans to delete their EGR and are in process of looking for an EGR block off plate... our 5.0 v8s (at least my year 2000) uses the EGR plates that work with the 4.6L v8 in the Mustang GT's of 1996-2004, such as this plate: Mustang 4.6L Billet EGR Block Off delete ford gt crownvic 96-04 w/Gasket 969096G | eBay, and not the EGR block off plate from the 94-95 Mustang GT 5.0L. Our EGR has the single center hole and not the dual holes like the 94-95 Mustang for some reason as it seems most of our stuff is similar to the 94-95 Mustang on most everything else lol :D

      I meant to mention I recently saw a cooking syringe kit in the food area of walmart and wish I'd thrown it in the cart.

      Not a ton going on past few weeks... Picked up transmission filter and transmission fluid... Hope to do the fluid change when I get some nice weather and time off :D Also have oil and oil filter and when I do that replace the oil sender sensor thing if I can figure out where it is, haha. Also need to install driver side window regulator.

      I've also been stocking up on stuff for the WRX, lol. Picked up some AMSOIL 75w90 sd gear lube and hope to change out the transmission/front diff (shared) and rear diff soon as well.

      Added a Cobb big sf intake and a Cobb Accessport v3 and am running an off the shelf tune for now. Picked up a pile of parts for the WRX already and have a baseline e-tune from one of the top WRX tuners alrdy ready to go for when I get everything installed :D

      Just installed a Boomba short throw shifter (talk about a pain in the ass process haha), Perrin shift stop, and a 650g weighted shift knob. Shifts are 100x better, insane difference.

      It's been quiet over the past few months (well.. since I got my WRX, lol). Have been mostly working on the WRX lately... have the car up on jack stands over the past week doing a good amount of stuff to it and back driving my Explorer in the meantime.. Forgot how nice the Explorer drives after all the work I did with it (thank you everyone for all the help)... Also reminded me of the few things I still need to do with the Explorer, lol.

      Once I finish with current mods on my WRX it's back to working on the Explorer...

      > Replace transmission fluid (have the fluid and filter in my garage)
      > Change oil and the sender thing
      > Replace driver side window motor (have in garage)
      > Replace windshield (ugh lol)
      > Replace plastic piece under windshield (looks ugly without one lol)
      > Touch up paint in a few spots
      > Fix fender clear coat
      > New tune
      > CLEAN IT lol

      I've been busy with the WRX and recently just installed an Invidia catless J-pipe, Invidia r400 exhaust, Perrin turbo oil sump, type n transmission mount, whiteline positive shift kit, Perrin turbo inlet w/nozzle, Grimmspeed 3 port ebcs, and boomba full recirc bypass valve... have in garage to install once weather allows... soku rear diff mount bushing inserts, soku rear sub-frame crossmember bushing lock down spacers, p& lower tgv deletes, p&l lower tgv housings, Perrin pitch stop mount and brace, IAG EGR delete, and then flash my e-tune and datalog/dial in the tune... Not to much to go lol :D It's been fun working on a newer car... LESS RUST! Lol.

      Also changed out the shift knob and got the windows tinted (ceramic ctx15 all the way around).. also pulled the emblems off and replaced the side emblem with a matte black one and the rear stuff all off but put just a matte black wrx emblem :D

      A few photos..
