Well sold off my eb last night only took 2 days to sell once i listed it haha, so that was good!

Now got me a 1996 EF2 xr8 302w 5speed manual

195k's on the clock looks to be pretty well looked after

Standard motor apart from my msd rotor/dizzy cap and coil i put on Also have extractors with full custom exhaust running duel exhausts 1 resonator on either side then both exhausts join up just behind the diff into a single pipe.

17" mags with 235/45 tyres allround.

Pics to come hopefully today if i have nice weather

Only problem i have notice with it is when its cold once u get to like 3-3.5k rpm mostly in 1st/2nd it surges / feels like no power "normal driving" haha but once its all warmd up after awhile of driving its fine?

It did it before all my msd gear went on so i know its not that sparkplugs are new it looks like and gap at 1.4mm

Going to run some injector cleaner thru the car today, and will look at getting new fuel filter and leads.
And see how i go, but apart from that very fun car to drive and sounds bloody awesome.

changed fuel filter, put injector cleaner thru the car and new set of leads still got abit of a surge happening more so when cold. So ill get a new set of sparkplugs could have a faulty one in there breaking down under load.

have you tried cleaning the MAF? -

Look around - theres threads on it (mostly on mustang forums..). DONT use brake or carby cleaner - they are a little too agressive.
Use MAF Cleaner, or a good non-lubricating electronics cleaner
