    Yeah, that's her namesake, a character from the story I'm working on

    So far, here's my little mod list:
    CFM Baffled Billet Valve Cover Breather Kit
    MMR CAI
    UPR Dual Valve Oil Catch Can
    FFTec Charge Pipes
    Synapse DV
    Steeda Throttle Body Spacer
    Boomba Intake Manifold spacer
    NGK 6510
    FFTec Street Intercooler
    Krona Catted DP
    Turbosmart Wastegate Actuator 10psi
    JDM Tuned using SCT4

    So far, stock I've done:

    (Rest of my times here: http://www.mustang6g.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32609)

    Now I'm still in the process of getting everything, thinking of going with these for my Exhaust/Catted DP next:

    http://www.makperformance.com/2015-Mustang-Ecoboost-23L-Hooker-Blackheart-Factory-Connect-Catback-ExhaustNo-Mufflers_p_461.html

    And for next summer, plan on replacing my stock Pirelli's for bigger, fatter tires (20's with or over 275 in the rear) and possibly finding a way to get a brake kit designed for a GT installed... Pipe dreams really, but hey, nothing to lose.

    Any comments or advice is really appreciated, and I forgot to mention I'm planning to go with Livernois for the tune.

    Thank's for looking, and have a great day :)

    Thanks Dave :)

    After reading the DP thread on the 2.3 section, might just get suspension bits and motor mount as I save up for the exhaust.

    Anything I should add that I haven't though of or am I good right now?

    Got all the basic bolt on's san turbo back installed this week, along with Conti ExtremeContact DSW 06's and damn is she a beast!

    Definitely making all sorts of whooshing and turbo noises, she's fun, and sadly, I made the mistake of trying to save my dad some $$$, so while the custom tunes alright, definitely getting a Cobb V3 this week, since the factory ECU not only apparently chokes the throttle past 5k, but also triggered a CEL xD

    Got a dyno printed, end results atm are 256.42whp and 292.49tq, obviously with the Cobb I can get way more, but I gotta wait for that to arrive.

    All the parts were put into the long clear space in the office, and they will be for sale shortly, bottom grill is the RTR that didn't work out due to the ACC so I might offer that at a slightly discounted rate, otherwise the car only had 8.5k miles on it before everything was removed. Since I left the office, the Office manager most likely put it in clear plastic bags and put them away neatly, I'll have pictures this week of all the parts individually.

    What else... as I said before, noticeable throttle choke past 5k, but before that, it pulls and the mods make a difference :) After I take care of the Cobb, going to save for a turbo back and then go suspension

    Thanks for taking a look and again, wanna give a shout out to Maximum PSI () for the installs and all, and who knows, maybe I've started a trend there

    She's a beast now, but feels a bit "loose" at speed, needs to be buttoned down, otherwise flawless.

    Gonna take pictures of the OEM parts, then list them for sale soon

    Rear Lower Control Arm
    Billet Vertical links
    Rear Diff Bushings
    Progressive Sport Springs
    Sway Bars and End Links (F/R for both)

    So that said, got parts for sale if anything need's PP Stuff, PM me

    Onto the car herself, definitely firmer and lower, definitely need to finish the exhaust, need to figure out what the whine is coming when I accelerate higher up (Could be tires, or driveshaft or maybe some of the parts, still solid otherwise) and definitely need to push her once it's completely dry out, she's a champ otherwise!

    Thanks Dave, Love all the Steeda goodies!

    Had the shocks readjusted since they (66 MVP) made them RaceaR firm and I drive all over with it (when I drive with her, lately she's been home chilling), now they're a lot smoother, although I doubt my parents would want to drive her anytime soon.

    Now to temporarily save up for a place to stay and stuff, then onto finishing the exhaust, adding the Turbosmart 10psi Wastegate Actuator, figuring out tires and getting a CF hood among other things, assuming I don't work on the future truck first xD
