Do to an unfortunate accident that I had in my wife's Accord The cougar will now get driven daily. I'll put the 3.0 pumpkin back in for some economy. Glad the weather has cooled off, ac no working yet. Should be fun.

The car has been fun to drive. Put about 500 miles on it already.
The 3.70 gears are too low. 13mpg. Put the 3.0 back in and a much nicer driver.
Hoping to be getting 16mpg or better.

Enjoy!!! I bet you will get more looks in the cougar than you did in the accord... I hear you about the gas mileage hopefully you don't have to drive too far...

I have 50 mile round trip mostly interstate 75.
Yes I have different speedo gears for the plug n play third member.
23 tooth for the 3.70 and 19 tooth for the 3.0.
Still would like overdrive but GearVenders $$ and Hone-O-Drive $$$.
The FMX works really well.

I do enjoy the thumbs up. Never got a single one in the Accord.
