I got my winter tires and wheels back on today. Had to buy new snow tires. But, it was time. I got four winters out of the Blizzaks.

2020 Mustang Ecoboost High Performance Package
Last winter I kept my Corsa 4s mounted and didn’t drive it when it got below 45. That’s the reason why after 18 months of ownership I have exactly 5K on the car. I have a 2019 RAV4 with Blizzaks, so snow was no issue.

This winter I wanted to enjoy the Mustang more, so I just installed Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 Plus 275/40/19. They’re a fraction wider than the Corsa 4s 265/40/19 that come with the Handling Package on the HPP. Have only 3 sunny miles on them.

My plan when the Corsa 4s are shot is to run the Continentals year round since I don’t hit the track.

Ford Performance. The ones for magneride. Drop is 0.78 ea corner. Car looked fantastic. On rough roads, crossing rr tracks, dips in the road, your lower back knew it. The magnetic fluid would get very hard so there was less give on rough pavement. I have lower back issues so the springs had to go.
Was that the kit with the sway bars and the flash for the MR ECU ?

Taking about the lowering springs.
Sorry, I didn’t know they did just a spring only option.

I was asking as I am interested in the kit they do which is springs, sway bars and a flash for the MR ECU - I’ve only read good things about that :like:

Wasn't aware of that. Not seen it here in the states. Springs only. I've seen kits with sway bars and springs. Didn't see mention of a reflash for the MR. Little late now. They are not going back on.

Finally painted my Brembo calipers ahead of the GTPP brake upgrade. Took about 5 hours from pulling the cars out of the garage to cleaning up the spray gun. Was worried I would run out of paint but the G2 kit had just enough and it did finally lay down smooth. Glad I waited for a 70* day…. Now to get everything installed!

I was tossing around the idea of this vs paying someone to powder coat or paint them vs buying ones from Ford. Are you happy with the turnout and ease?

Drove it to work to get a head start on next week's project . Doesn't look bad until you open the hood . I figured they would total it , but they didn't.

Bought my Mustang a new friend. Unfortunately they are not getting along with each other.

Haven’t washed it in two weeks! Did a wash and polish with Zaino Z5.

It poured Saturday night after I washed and polished earlier in the day. Sunday morning I dried it off. Forecast was for clear skies and no more rain. They lied. Another rain event in afternoon. More drying off! Still looks good. 68 is leaving garage next week for metal work! May be able to keep GT in for winter!

New emblems and Air filter. That front emblem is a pita.

Not if you use a trim tool and start at the top. The key is to use the replacement pony to mark the pin locations on the chrome emblem. Then use a small drill to drill out the top pin.

What caused the Raptor meltdown? What’s the repair going to cost? In order to be totaled out, the repair would have to meet or exceed 72%-75% of ACV.
