Soon. I have so much going on this weekend that's going to get in my way. The shop where I am doing the work, the owner is a buddy and occasionally he'll pick up the ball and run with it, depending on what he has going on. I am hoping he'll get some stuff done without me, but I can't count on it.

The good thing here is, it’s still winter, so you have plenty of time to get everything done without having to rush.

True, but I daily drive my car unless there is actual snow on the ground. It has been down since June 2nd, and my (very unrealistic) goal was to have the car back up and running in 2 weeks, certainly by the end of June...LOL. It's killing me slowly inside.

I can relate to that. I had a similar experience when rebuilding my MT82-D4. It took way longer than I had expected.

Defo a long slow burner, but the first piece of my front end project is done.

I didn't like the finish and logo on the big mouth, so it got some sanding work and it's just come back from fresh paint ( @compprep ) :

Old finish on top, fresh paint on the bottom (same area) :

Next bit, but technically I can't start on this until the 25th as its a Christmas present from Mum & Dad (I will take another photo if they wrap it :giggle:) ...

  • Strip the powder coat.
  • Towing eye mount.
  • Active cruise radar mount.
  • Threaded holes for loom mounts.
  • Maybe, a hidden grill badge mount ...
  • Fresh powder.

Then the front can come off so those parts can go in, along with the Ford Performance lower Bullitt grill, and hopefully the PP2 splitter (although I think I can add the PP2 splitter later / without removing the front end ?) :like:

WD :like:

I'm pumped to hear the sound difference. If you're talking about the pipe not the hood
yes was talking about the h-pipe lol, I have active on mine so can keep it quiet when I want to or track when I want to hear it

Replaced my transmission fluid with BG Synchroshift 2. Definitely noticeable shifting improvement. That clunk going for Neutral to 1st is gone, not nearly as notchey either. I'll have to wait for a cold start after work tonight and see the difference.

A little better when cold. Still a little notchey, but better over the stock fluid.

No resonator but xpipe. No more borla atak3 axle back but pipes going up to try reduce drag and protect the new diffuser.
Car got picked up to go fix my transmission. Fingers crossed ☺
That is obscene

Resonator going back after it.

Really. Too loud. But. Also that is probably the best power the car can make FBO.

Well just for Buttonwillow.
(Need to buy a new one cause i can hear things rolling inside mine. I believe some of the muffling stuff broke)
