Installed the Ford Performance Calibration kit (M-9603-M8B) after work. Then took the car out for a 45min break in.

Install took about 1.5 hours. Felt like half of that was just the software side of it.

Car was in limp mode until I cleared the adaptive KAM, then all was good.

I can definitely feel the increased low end TQ; it's not as strong as my old E85 tune, but I wasn't expecting it to be. Still tho a big improvement over stock. And best of all the drivability is still there. No weird shifts, no parking lot speed jerking in 1st.

62k took me 10 months to get to. Of course minus 27k from it when I bought the car last year. Y'all need to drive more instead of hiding your cars. Life is short get out and drive.
Your theme song. 😄

I've been drivin' all night, my hands wet on the wheel
There's a voice in my head that drives my heel
It's my baby callin', sayin', "I need you here"
And it's a half past four and I'm shiftin' gear

No more speed, I'm almost there
Gotta keep cool, now gotta take care
Last car to pass, here I go
And the line of cars go down real slow, woah

Nice dude. I'm thinking of getting it as well. Did you get it from Levittown? Would you say it's worth it?

Ive had my Mustang for 6 months now and I cant say I've ever scraped the front end. Well we cant have that, so I installed BMR SP089 minimum drop springs on just the front of my car.

I have 305/35/20 on the rear and I'm pretty happy with the way it fills the wheel well so I decided to get rid of the nasty front wheel gap only. I'm pretty happy with the results. I must have installed everything right because I have no noise what so ever. Car rides identical to stock. I reused the crummy base struts so we'll see how long they last.
I also installed BMR's camber bolts. I have an alignment scheduled for next Friday so we'll see how those work out.
Pretty happy with the results so far for only $136. Cant beat that.

Now we'll see how long before I say f-it and get the rear springs

Got up this morning and finished ordering the Chemical Guys set up. Polisher kit, compounds, pads, OG clay bar kit, and ceramic spray kit with new towels. I figured it’s time rather than paying someone else hundreds to do this.
