It is too loud. I got my Mustang out of the garage finally. Boy the MAC mufflers and the 2.5" exhaust are loud. My wife thinks I just spent all this time and money to make an old loud junk. Well it stays that way until the police tell me to change it. It runs good. On a back road cruising in third gear I can punch the gas and squeal the tires. Guess I'll have to get some big tires also. ( Have big 14" off an 84 LTD ) Fun is!!!

I do have a question: I have hydraulic lifters and roller rockers. There is a little noise from the valve train. I adjusted the lash. One 60,000 shim under each. When the lifter started to go down (contact ) I added the shims so the stud could be turned 3/4 turns to get 22lbs torque. Does this sound right or are they to loose?

Also if anyone saw my seat dilemma : It is fixed,the guy thats business covered my broken frame could believe that he had done it. I think it was his worker (bottom frame was broken in 5 spots). Well he was a stand up guy and took care of recovering another frame.
