Sexy picture dump time 😄

Had a photoshoot this morning and couldn't be happier with how the pics came out. I've never had a shoot done on anything I own, normally just my own potato taking pics.

In an effort to pull a little more weight from the car before the turbski's go on, I changed up my tire setup. Ended up going to Hoosier bias plys for the front, they have the widest section width of the available 18" tires. Feel a little safer, as these are 18x6 wheels. The weight difference is pretty crazy, those MT's are bricks for sure lol. Looking at roughly 15lb saving per wheel/tire, or 30lbs total off the nose.

Finally did a few minor tweaks under the hood, tired of staring at them on the shelf. Prop rod had to go, did the Redline with the carbon sleeve, and some valve covers that helped compliment the car. Pulled off the charge pipe, and reinstalled my cai while i was in there lol.

Thanks guys!

Looks awesome! It’s a shame that Ford still has a prop rod in place on the current Mustang.
Yep, can't believe they haven't put them on the mustang, or at least premium models.

God I love this car. Turbo kit on?
Soon, hoping to have it fabbed up and pipes out for coating next weekend. Still have lots of stuff to do in prep for the turbos

Wew, got the K member in, time to get busy next two weeks. Weight of just the K is 35lbs, with the added in legs, another 11lbs, or 46lbs total. Ill weigh the stock K when it comes down, but every bit of weight lost is a plus for me. I may end up keeping the stock motor mounts, just don't need any more vibration in the car then these Voodoo motors already produce.

Same here. Im sure ill have to make a few tweaks, hopefully nothing too crazy. Dion already gave me the heads up on some of the early K member fitment adjustments needed. Hoping to get the car over this weekend, and get cranking on it. Lots to do before track day.

Finally got my 2 stepidystep in, and replaced a bad lower bearing in the rear control arm.. The bearing was super tight right out of the box and never loosened up as I was hoping. BMR got me a new one right away, just finally got around to tearing the rear back apart and doing it. Also had another alignment done this morning, so should be ready to rock for tomorrow.

So a little update from the track outing today. Car ran as expected for the weather, was a little hot with some high DA, so I knew It was less than ideal out. Was hoping to knock off a low 11 on motor, just no way to do it. I ran my QTP's out back, which are 27" tall, and a little less wide then my normal slick, ran out of time to swap out yesterday. Best '60 was a 1.61, and best time 11.51. After that, track prep was going away and temps climbed. Tried bringing the two step down more, just was getting worse and worse with spinning. Overall I'm really happy car went straight, and everything held up. Now its time for boost though.

Teaser pic from earlier. Waiting for air filters to come in tomorrow, so I can be 100% sure on turbo position before welding to the mid pipe connection. i Just have to throw on the intercooler, injectors, plugs and boost controller, then tune. Gonna do a final weigh in of the car, hoping it's sitting around 3600. I decided to do the kit with the stock k member, so when I do the BMR unit I know everything will fit, and can always go back if need be.
