    Honestly I'd love HRE's RS103 but that's never going to happen.

    I have a JLT intake & SCTx4 tuner sitting in the garage already but I thought it would be a good idea to but 1000 or 2000 miles on the car before tuning.

    I also really want to Drag the car some with my Dad & his Supercharged 97' t-bird. The consensus seams to be that stronger axles are required for drag racing.

    This summer:
    JLT intake & tune
    DSS 800hp axles
    BMR rear cradle bushings maybe more IRS support
    drag radials on some smaller wheels

    Next year:
    20" HRE FF15 wheels & Pilot SS tires

    2018:
    Procharger

    Looks good! I'm around the Clawson/Royal Oak area a lot so I'm sure we will see each other around.

    Just did some under-hood work.

    - Removed the plastic 5.0 cover. I like the motor better without it
    - swapped in the blue Ford Racing Coil-Covers
    - UPR Catch Can (PLUG N PLAY SC Seperator + matching breather hose)

    Just installed:
    - JLT intake
    - SCTx4 tuner
    - 93 oct custom tune by Brent Hughes at DTP Racing.

    I actually had a pretty hard time with one aspect of the install. With this new intake there's an airbox/shroud and a fresh-air-inlet that connects the bumper-inlet to the shroud. I had a very difficult time getting the fresh-air-inlet mated to the bumper-inlet.

    16771464374_a343cf13d6_b.jpg

    I even needed to file some material away on the lower inside lip of the fresh-air-inlet:
    17393619591_41d13a301c_b.jpg

    I found that it was easier to install the fresh-air-inlet first (tapped into place with a light mallet) before installing the shroud . In JLT's instructions you put them in together, then slide the fresh-air-inlet forward to mate with the bumper. I could not get it to work that way.

    But it did all come together:

    Car runs great. Very strong. There are a few little "intake sounds" that are new. They are hardly noticeable though. It might be due to my louder than stock exhaust but I consider this a quiet intake. CAI's I've installed on other cars made a MUCH bigger difference to the sound of driving the car.
