Seattle FSB Update...

Hi all! Sorry I have not posted for a while.

Last three years I was given a work car with gas. I drove this car almost daily saving 9.5 Bronco MPG. Earlier this year I was rotated to a new position which does not have an assigned take-home vehicle. So back to the Seattle FSB as a daily driver!

The Seattle FSB continues to drive excellent. The 408 Stroker, Level 10 E4OD, Currie F9+ and Electric Boost Brakes are still as impressive as originally when installed. In the long run, this was a great investment. On October 29, the Bronco will be a 30 year old single owner vehicle and still my primary driver.




Big news... the Seattle FSB is getting a little brother. Just ordered a 2020 Shelby GT500. Been spending a lot a time over at the Shelby Forums.




Regardless, I am not planning to sell the Seattle FSB, but keeping it as a daily driver!

Anyway, I hope all is well with my FSB friends. I still turn my head every time a Bronco drives by!

Good to know the Bronco is sound as a pound.

Is that the flat plane voodoo engine that's in the Shelby? *Borat voice* Wowowoooweeeee!

Yeah, you have to keep the Bronco; I don't see the Mustang pulling your boat. Anyway, welcome back, but you didn't have to disappear while driving the 'company' car. We still would've let you play in the FSB sandbox.

This is a 5.2L supercharged Predator Engine with a cross-plane crank V8 and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. But there is much more.

Yo Seattle,
Welcome back!
I just posted a 96 TFI wiring diagram of yours and countless pics over past few years.

Company vehicles sure can take some abuse! Best part is someone else has to maintain them.

You got it GetBent4x4!

So, the Seattle FSB has been garaged it's whole life. When the new Shelby comes, I told my wife she will have to park outside.

That went over well...

That looks like a pretty kick-ass ride but living in WA state, I'm bettin' the FSB will still be your rough day in the winter go-to. Not sure I'd even take that thing out of the garage during a rainy day and you guys have plenty of those.

Since we are talking cars; not stangs but this Hurd of challengers is awesome. Local guy owns them and this warehouse and has started a monthly muscle car meet. Lots of hot new stuff and old. The red one on the right is pushing over 1100 horse.
