I found wheels I really like.... I found a grabber blue with the same brushed titanium finish for color reference. but different rohana wheels here are some photos of my car before/after.

What do you guys think? I would get the same size so they fit where I am at now, not tucked in like the mustang s550 that has it. They are Rf2 rohana brushed titanium-- also do you think my chrome window trim might clash with the brushed titanium wheels?
I don't think they looks nice with grabber blue. Looks like the wheels are doing their best to outshine an already very bright and shiny car. Those wheels look better with darker car colours IMO.

Installed the FP oil separator and ordered a syringe from ebay (https://www.ebay.com/itm/293669766778) to drain it, based on post by bjstang (https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/threads/draining-the-fr-oil-air-separator.79694/post-1796846). A bit unsure if it's necessary or not, but most seem to agree it at least can't hurt and since I'm semi-regularly tracking the car too now, I thought it's probably worth it as I plan to keep the car for a long, long, time.


Also installed redline hood struts. Wondered a bit if I would need to actively push the hood down to close it with the struts now, but no. Apart from pulling it down a little bit from the top to start the descent when I want to close it, it feels as before. Also like before, I drop it from about 20-25cm height to let it slam down and close by itself.

The struts are less in the way than the OEM prop, look better, and also save me from burning my fingers on the OEM hood prop if I need to open the hood shortly after driving. A bit annoyed that Ford could not include this when my 20 year old Audi A3 does though.

Tried to remove the sound tube and failed. Started back at the nut on the firewall and could not get my hand in there with the flex head wrench. Might try again in the future from below. Don't want to just rip it out.

Washed it yesterday. Man it was filthy after an afternoon at the track. Nice and clean and tucked in until next weekend.

Removed the sound tube today. Much cleaner look and seemed quieter on a drive after (what I was looking for). Used a racheting 10mm wrench and patience to get the nut off from engine compartment.

according to the calibration tune instruction i got. Ford instructs to take the sound tube off that you remove the front drivers side tire and then take the screws out of the liner on the passenger compartment side and the nut for the sound tube is right there behind it. or like i did I just yanked it off. the piece slips right off the nut and didnt even break.

Here are the instructions... page 5 and 6 to take sound tube off oem way.

I appreciate all input. its a large $ I am guessing 1400-1600 bucks. so I like to hear opinions on why and why not. I am taking this into consideration. but man I think they are pretty as of right now
