Sounds great so far! :D
Actually those injectors failed shortly after I installed them. One of the came apart internally and I was running mega lean on the cylinder I had my wideband in with the MS. At WOT it would be at 20:1 or so, and the other 3 had to be at like 8:1 as I kept adding fuel. No biggie, they worked for a few days so not your fault.

Picked up a new set of Cobra Mustang injectors from buddy at ford dealer to replace them last year. Ended up running 14.1's @ 98-99 mph on e85 with street tires and full interior last year. Crane 18's, stock trans and clutch. No-90 intake, stock mtx tb.

Got some new stuff installed this year, actually more like 2-3 weeks ago. Here's current setup:

Current mod list (since it's probably hard to follow what's in the car, and what's going in it later):

Engine:

2.4L DOHC. Bone stock bottom end. 4k or so on it (was a new mopar short block)
Unorthodox race UDP (tiny, no ps groove)
AFX header
2.5" dynomax exhaust with a cutout at end of header
Stock head, milled .040". Crower springs, Crower stage 4 cams, AEM 3-bolt cam gears with JeffB#2's spacers (haven't adjusted them yet).
AMM long runner intake with seperate water neck. Nothing special about intake I don't think. Not ported or anything.
60mm Jeep throttle body. I made a block off plate for IAC and used a bunch of RTV to seal it to the surface. It ain't pretty but it's not permanent

Drivetrain:
Trans (this will be before race on Sunday, currently stock high mileage clutch that slips with slicks and unknown mileage 3.94 with .81 5th)
Brand new 3.94 for Stratus
Quaiffe
2.7L clutch
stock axles (never broke one yet!)
Slicks
Eibach sportlines on KYB GR2's (4k or so on struts, went in right after engine)
Prothane control arm bushings
Sway bars, have no clue what car they were on, I've got a pile of them

Megasquirt 2, Innovate LC1 wideband with gauge (just chilling in heater vent for now )
30# injectors (thanks nosdneon)
Walbro 255 lph pump

Also rocking 01 R/T seats. Damn are they comfortable. If I didn't have them, I'd put in a set of SRT seats

Otherwise that's about it.

Best time 2 weekends ago was:

60' 1.815
330 5.452
1/8 8.506 @ 80.45
1000 11.147
1/4 13.379 @ 101.07

The slicks polished the bottom of my spring perches so I'll be fixing that today. I brought a set of '04 knuckles to local machine shop and had the tops narrowed for 1st gen struts. New 04 wheel bearings, 98 Taurus wheel studs (almost identical to Neons except 9.5 mm longer), and spacers should do the trick. I'll also be able to install my PT axles. I broke my first axle ever on a launch last time, sheared it right off.

PT axles are installed with 2004 knuckles with milled down strut mount. Longer wheel studs for 1998 Taurus installed so I can run spacers with the slicks. Needs alignment and one more trip to track to see what I can do on stock bottom end and full interior.
