Default Incoming mod......BOOOOOOOST!

As a treat to myself for making it 40 years on this Earth, I had decided to finally get some forced induction onto the 2015 Mustang.

I dropped off a check at the shop and the blower should arrive in less than a week. Barth Tuning is running a special this month for free installation and tuning. I was very happy with my last set-up through the former Modular Powerhouse shop, so I decided that's the place I'd be working with on getting this car set-up. Bought not built racing!!

This is what I got:



This is the reason that I'm now wheel and tire shopping. I need to get a new combo by the time this blower gets installed. The stock 255's will not be up to the challenge.

377rwhp vs 630rwhp rwhp?!? How much different could it be!?? I remember when 377rwhp felt lightning fast. These days, it feels quite pedestrian.

I will definitely be building up to full throttle. I've never driven anything faster than my last car.

I rode in @UWISHU1's over the weekend and I was surprised how balanced it was under full throttle. I mean it spun but it was straight as an arrow. Very composed.

The video looks like it was self induced spin city.

I hope that's the case because it looked like he had some stickier tires and a bigger wheel. This video is why I was nervous about going with the standard pulley size, I thought that might be a bit much on the street since this guy is all over the place.

I'll be 40 in August. I can still pass for early 30's, but I think my days of being mistaken for my 20's are over.

Congrats on the boost, I know it's apples to oranges since yours is a manual but the tires I have on the back of mine hook pretty well from a 40 roll I get just barley a blip on the 2-3 shift of spin if it's 50-60* out and that's keeping the tires at 35psi on the street to try and lengthen the life of them a bit
