    Stage 2 Procharger intercooler will be here 5/6
    3.5" coupler with t-bolt clamps will be here 5/6

    Ordered the brackets for the intercooler today from Procharger - No ETA yet *edit will be here 5/7!

    Contacted Beefcake to check in on status of the parts and made the following adjustments:

    Swapped the order for Steeda drag springs to BMR drag springs which are in stock. Should be here next week.
    Swapped the order for red BMR rear shock mounts to black BMR rear shock mounts which are in stock. Should be here next week.

    Asked for a status on lead time for the BMR differential bushings, should know more next week.

    Update on parts:

    Intercooler brackets - Came in yesterday
    BMR Drag Springs - ETA 5/13
    BMR Rear Shock Mounts - ETA 5/10
    BMR Differential Bushings - ETA 5/11
    Ford Performance Toe Bushing - ETA 5/10

    It will be nice to put the car back together. It's a shame seeing the subframe and diff just sitting there.

    Opinion time. Yes, your opinion.

    If I have full replacement delrin cradle bushings and full replacement aluminum differential bushings, do I need Steeda IRS subframe support braces 555-5754 and the Steeda hardcore diff bracket 555-4050?

    Open to thoughts. I'd rather not have the unnecessary weight and would like to recoup some costs if truly no benefits.

    Heading out to Chicago to drink at the Battle of the Breweries VIP Experience this weekend. Looking forward to it. Here's some car updates.

    Swapped in the Ford Performance Toe Bushings:

    frppbushing.jpg frppbushing1.jpg frppbushing2.jpg


    The BMR rear shock mounts came but they are missing hardware :crying: Waiting on a response from BMR. Here's a pic of them mocked up:

    rear shock mount.jpg

    Update on parts:

    BMR Drag Springs - ETA 5/13
    BMR Differential Bushings - ETA 5/11 *EDIT: Delayed to 5/13
    BMR Adjustable Toe Arms - ETA 5/14
    BMR Delrin Camber Arms - ETA 5/14
    BMR Camber Lockout - ETA 5/14
    BMR SP089r Minimum Drop Front Springs - ETA Unknown (got these to be able to swap in and out as needed to set suspension without waiting)

    Asked Terry for a quote on the following:

    Procharger GT350 cold side charge pipe
    Procharger IC MAF blockoff plate and hardware
    Procharger HO to Stage 2 Conversion Kit: This would include an 8 rib 3.70 pulley to net over 800whp
    ATI Balancer

    Want to thank @Chris Barnes for doing me a solid and passing along his knowledge and being supportive. @whatsup62 also did me a solid and sent me some parts lists today. Thank you both!

    Still open to thoughts, but seriously considering selling the Steeda stuff I mentioned above. Might keep the diff bracket.

    Yeah, I talked with PBD today and they said they highly recommend it for driveability. Going to give it a go.

    Watching closely now to see how it works. I have thought this route myself. Seems it would be a clearer signal.

    You know what time it is... another update.

    BK050 and BK048 are here and installed:

    diffbushings.jpg

    diffbushingsinstall.jpg

    delrinsubframe.jpg

    I decided to put in the Steeda diff bracket:

    diffbracket1.jpg

    The BMR Springs came in today, again I got two diff front spring options to get the best setup:

    dragsprings.jpg


    Additional updates:

    BMR Adjustable Toe Arms - ETA 5/14
    BMR Delrin Camber Arms - ETA 5/14
    BMR Camber Lockout - ETA 5/14

    I haven't heard back from Beefcake on the quote I requested. Maybe within the next couple days. I did hear from BMR about my missing hardware for the rear shock mounts, they don't have any manufactured. No ETA on when that will be done. It's pretty disappointing...

    Subframe should be going back in tmrw after I drill the holes for the camber lockout kit.

    @turnswrench Sorry to backtrack on your thread but did you ever get sorted with the Boost box? I'm having the same issues you did :(

    It was fairly accurate toward the end of last season. I use it directionally, I'd say it's within a pound after adjusting the settings and working with Lund Support.

    Got the cradle torqued down back on the car, will try to wrap up the suspension tonight. Still waiting on BMR hardware for the rear shock mounts.

    Got the rear of the mustang buttoned up last night, minus shocks.

    DSS 2khp vs stock:

    dssaxlescomparison.jpg


    Got the left side buttoned up first and then test fit a wheel:

    wheeltestfit.jpg

    Final pic of the night with the rear end all wrapped up:

    Tonight I plan to re-torque the driveshaft hardware and put back on the exhaust. This weekend I'll see if I can get the wheels and tires mounted to get that part of the show complete.

    You use some Loctite on that axle nut? I just went through a loose wheel and re-torque with Loctite added. had no noise or anything was just putting on those tires from you and the whole thing wiggled. lucky I guess!!
