Lol that’s not it. That is Mikes dads car I kept in my garage while I borrowed his trailer.

Here’s a sneak peak. I’ll post details tomorrow. I’m fucking wrecked. Left at 2:20am and got home at 7:45pm

I am now the 3rd owner of this 1,960 mile 2020 Twister Orange cookie cutter GT. It is a premium 401a car with performance pack, A10, active exhaust, Recaro seats, and the Bang & Olufson sound system. Car has the digital instrument cluster which I love!

A little history on the car....first owner bought the car and brought it to Lebanon Ford @122 miles. Lebanon Ford then installed a Whipple stage 2 kit, id1050x injectors, MMR billet oil pump and crank gears, and the Corsa active exhaust. This owner sold the car in May of last year with about 700 miles.

Owner 2 is a total gear head. Guy has worked for ZF Group for 25+ years and his hobby is building street cars. The shop he had on his property was fricken awesome. Id say it was about 50' x 100' and had 3 lifts with an upstairs office loft. Anyways, this guy bought the car and installed a Fore fuel system, 3.15 pumpkin, TSP longtubes, and some BMR vertical links and cradle lockout. He then had Lund tune it with an nGuage. Says he had it at the track in October and it went 9.8 @ 146 on a 2nd gear leave.

My immediate plans are to lower it about an inch, and get some street wheels. I kept my old Billet Specialties drag setup so Im good there. Next winter I'll have the A10 built and turn it up a bit.

Taking up closer to 8k would probably knock another 10th or two off just from holding higher rpm through the shifts
Depends on where it’s making power. Viewing the data on a dyno will give you the information you need to determine where the powerband starts to drop off and a shift should initiate. 01bluesnake 01bluesnake

There’s a dyno sheet from Lebanon Ford I’ll take a closer look, but these Coyotes love to rev typically.
Looks sweet! What kind of Corsa is on the car? The same ear bleeding setup on your Blue one?
It’s active. In quiet mode it’s pretty silent. In race, it’s ear bleeding. So I can at least quiet this one down.

This is true but going past peak power so it drops right back into it at the shift seems to work on the 10 speeds, shifting at 7800 on a car like this the rpm probably would never drop under 6500 the whole run and just ride right in the bulk of the power the whole time, also blower coyotes just seem to keep making power the further you rev them
