  1. 2018 GT Daily Track Driver

    Build Date: November 12, 2023 I’ve been on the hunt for some new track wheels. The original plan was to use the OEM 19x8.5” Polished Aluminum wheels (255/40-19) for the street and LMR’s SVE 19x10” PP2 replica wheels (285/35-19) for the track. As these things go, I fell in love with the look...
  2. Help, front control arm removal!

    @BlownGP Remember this from my post above: I will note that I had to take the hex nut off the [separator] bolt to get it to fit. To keep the separator from slipping off the ball joint, I threaded the ball joint nut on backwards to allow the separator to "grab" better.
  3. Help, front control arm removal!

    Yep, that’s the one. I grabbed mine and compared the dimensions and they are the same.
  4. Help, front control arm removal!

    I like having the right tool for the job. If you lived closer I would just lend you mine!
  5. 2018 GT Daily Track Driver

    Build Date: October 28, 2023 In the previous post, when I replaced my windshield washer hose I accidentally dropped one of the hood insulation retainers down the front of the engine. In an effort to try and find it, I was underneath the car trying to see if it was resting on the under belly...
  6. Help, front control arm removal!

    Yes, that tool works perfectly for the lower control arms, including the one with the air deflector. I‘ve used it twice: first time on the initial install of the FP Lower Control arms, and then again recently to replace those (bad ball joint) with the Steeda tension link with the spherical...
  7. 2018 GT Daily Track Driver

    Build Date: October 22, 2023 In post #108 I replaced the Ford Performance hood strut fender brackets with the better fitting Redline Tuning brackets. With the Ford Hood struts I didn’t have to do anything special with the windshield washer tubing mounted to the hood. Maybe because the...
  8. Service advance track BS

    Wow, it blows my mind how such a seemingly un-related thing could adversely affect another part of the system. For me, my issue was a dirty MAF sensor. Once I hit it with some MAF sensor cleaner, my AdvanceTrac errors when away. Granted, I had the DTCs that indicated some type of MAF issue, I...
  9. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Absolutely. @RandomTask did the same thing with his cut towers and they look really great with the ring he put on. Where did you source yours?
  10. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Today I had Texas Track Works cut my strut tower opening larger, install Vorshlag camber/castor plates, and dial in -3.0 degrees of camber up front.
  11. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    I've never seen the PP1 wheels in silver... I love it!
  12. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Install was pretty easy. I previously purchased a ball joint separator when I replaced the stock GT control arms with the PP1 versions with the air deflectors, so I was glad I invested in the right tool for the job. I used a wire brush to remove the old loctite from the frame bolt and used...
  13. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Just installed them yesterday. Only difference so far is that I don’t have the “clunk“ from the bad ball joint anymore. I’ve got a date with Texas Track Works in a week and a half for them to install Vorshlag camber plates and add in some additional negative camber. I haven’t scheduled another...
  14. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    I agree, all three look great. I'm kind of partial to the Apex Anthracite wheels, but I'm trying to reserve both Apex sets for the track and stick with the SVE SP2 19x10 wheels for the street.
  15. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    After my last track day I noticed that I had a bit of a ”clunk” when hitting the brakes. Turned out to be a bad ball joint (I use ALL of the track which includes the rumble strips and curbing). So, today I replaced my front upper control arms (tension links) with a set from Steeda with the...
  16. Texas Ford OEM 19” Polished Aluminum Wheels with Continental ECS tires $200

    Now for the rock bottom low price of $200! Please pick these up and clear up some valuable garage space for me!! 😂
  17. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Yesterday I picked up 2 sets of Apex SM-10 19x11” wheels from @RandomTask (your Mach 1 is amazing sir!) and today I tried on the new shoes! Washed the car and did a quick photoshoot of the current wheels as well as the new sets 😁
  18. Ford Performance Tune for 2018+ GT

    No noticeable oil usage and I’m 100% stock on the engine tune. Regardless of what originally came with my car, I can’t ignore the fact that when I ran the 6509 heat range 6 plugs I ceased to experience the random misfire codes on my last two track days. Also, it’s interesting that the NGK 6510...
  19. Ford Performance Tune for 2018+ GT

    Because I thought that my track day random misfire codes were due to the large spark plug gaps (and not a difference in heat range) I gapped the 6509s to the minimum .049”
