    Bought my second 5.9 in December. This car is my Eleanor. After totaling the one I drove as a kid every time I get near one it disappears before I can get my hands on it. Finally landed one that needs a lot of love but may just work(knock on wood). So here goes;

    Bought bone stock except maybe shift kit???? Carfax shows two rebuilds in 2 years. It just shoves(not slams) through the shifts. Friend of mine owns a local tranny shop and really thinks thats the case.

    Hughes plenum repair
    Accel coil
    Taylor 8.8 wires
    K&N drop-in
    GMB performance water pump
    180* thermostat
    high speed fan wired to perma-on
    driver side vent anchor dremeled for cooling(worked ALOT more than I expected doing just the one. Other side has tons of electronics under it.)

    2" BB
    245/70/16 Duro Envoys
    random thicker sway bar links from local shop
    Rancho 5000's
    Rancho SS

    Side cladding delete and tab shave(waiting for paint)

    Pioneer head unit
    Alpine Type R's all the way around
    Superfat guy got in a wreck rocking driver seat mod

    Iron ram heads
    Full kolak exhaust
    SCT tune
    Still deciding between AEM Brute force vs K&N CAI
