Some ceramic coated goodies curstosy of LoKo coatings, always do a phenomenal job. The rest of the system will go out to them once the car is done with the track day Sat. I ended up ordering the Kooks X pipe system, gonna chop off the ends and weld to meet the turbos.

Intercooler is finally up, and yes there is a leak from a trans cooler line. Pried on a line a little too hard when I was mounted the turbos and got a dreaded drip. Where the line is formed from the factory, got a hair line crack, just thin metal at that spot. Welded the fitting up, and put some silicone which I let cure over night. Ordering a new set of trans lines, but this is hopefully a fix do I can tune today and run at the track safely tomorrow. The intercooler is spec'd by me and built by Bell intercoolers.

That’s awesome work man! I appreciate you taking us through the process. Share the dyno results when you’re done tuning.

Look fuggin' great! Do you have a decent amount of room to get the hot side of the kit to the IC? Looks like the cold side should be pretty short and sweet.

OK so this car is sick AF and you picked the best color ford haz ever made. But I have to ask, if you were planning to build a straightline car, why pay a $20k premium over a GT for a car that's designed for a road course? Am I only using this school of thought because I'm a cheap ass? I couldn't imagine paying big $$ for track suspension, brakes etc then removing all those parts make a drag setup work.

Like I said I love the car, just curious more than anything

He's a business owner, so advertising and building credibility. People see cool stuff like this and want the same.

So, got some good news and some bad news. Good news,, got the engine diaper on, hell of a tight fit for sure, but works. Got the lower aero all together and turbos tuck up great. The bad, had it on the dyno tuning on low boost and was running out of fuel. After a lot of hours, pulled the fuel hat and there is a sticky residue in the tank and on the pump assembly. Going to clean it all out and change the fuel filter, but might have to change the pumps if that has clogged them up. It could be the top end cylinder lube I add with the barrel E85, either way have to get it all cleaned out, and go back on the dyno. It is a no go for the track outing today, bummer.

Drew, are you on the Instagram?
I am not, only on FB.
Hot side routing looks super simple!
it's not bad, but as simple as it looks, fab and welding is still killer on time. Ive done a few of these setups now, so kinda got them down to a science and know all the parts I need..
Hi drew. Long time no talk. Sick car man. Can I have the first available lane in Mexico? 😁

it’s Chad aka “qwik01cobra”
Whats up! Definitely long time since I seen you. Thanks and yes, once its dialed in, will be out doing some "cruises" lol
