    An update on my diamond cut stock Mustang wheels (2016), done last October. The dreaded white worm has gone into over-drive on all the wheels in the last 2 months so I decided to call it a day and sell them – I got £400 from WeBuyAnyAlloys. I knew the risks, but didn’t think it would get so bad so quickly, with the wheels just 2 months out of their short 6 month warranty (either a coincidence or the big-wigs at The Wheel Specialists know exactly what they’re doing!). I might have got more for them if I had sold privately, but I’m not so sure given their current condition (ironically, if they were just polished and not diamond cut, I could have had them cheaply touched up where damaged rather than needing to complete re-cut or re-spray them). So, diamond cut - never again! But the good news is that I’ve got them replaced with new Bola B18s in bronze. Off to Germany tomorrow for the big Mustang meet - so long as the heat doesn't kill me en route!

    I fitted the exhaust last week and cut the standard diffuser to suit as i couldn't decide what aftermarket diffuser to fit.

    Any more details on the exhaust? How big a job is this? I’m assuming this is a lot cheaper than buying the full Ford Performance active exhaust?

    I think both back boxes were about a grand with VAT from Ford. They were supposed to be about £400 each but the drivers side one has a new part number and higher price and just under £600. The control kit was £157 from ebay. Item number 401678848988. Roush Valance was just under 400 from Nemesis UK.

    The Ebay motors didn't line up with the ford valve so i just tack welded the spring in place as there isn't any room to get a tool into make new groves. Took a few mins a side and it was all working. The ford motors wont work with the ebay kit so they are spare parts.

    The exhausts fit perfect and there is just 1 cut for each side to do and the mounting brackets all line up so mods needed.

    I didn't do it to save money i just wanted an exhaust that was factory quiet for the family stuff and motorway trips but was loud when i wanted it to be.

    Looking around the Roush active exhaust with valance is going to be about 3K so this is about half the price.

    Nothing too exciting, but I gave the interior a full treating with some gtechniq products and also dressed the engine bay whilst it was still clean.

    Got my scoops back from the painters. £228 incl VAT in the end. 20 mins to fit,and job done!

    MMD V-Series Side Scoops - without inserts (as they've been out of stock for ages... waiting for them to come back in)
    MD Concepts GT350 Style front fenders scoops (bought these on a whim as wasn't sold on their look. Still not sure, but will keep them on and see how i feel about them in a few weeks.

    Spent the day doing the oil pump gears. Not too bad of a job. Took just over 7 hours.

    Was going to take loads of pics but just forgot.

    Wire wrapped around the pickup pipe bolts means you can undo them with out dropping them in the sump. B262E2E6-BBF5-4F15-ABEC-B79E746F1820.jpeg 26702BCD-457A-402A-A04C-B8C8B04C48FD.jpeg

    They look great, I would say that as I’ve got the same side scoops too. To forewarn you’ll need to remove them to fit the inserts, you won’t be able to fit them whilst they are on the car.

    Throttle body swap again today. I had 90mm BBK a few weeks back but it was faulty so sent back.

    Spoke with Palm Beach about the GT350 TB with it only being £150 new and was told they had no issue with tuning it.

    Today it arrived and was fitted in 20mins. Uploaded the new tune and took it for a drive. 3331BC4D-D56D-4328-B827-F2EC3E4DD4BB.jpeg

    Had my Pilot Sport 4s tyres fitted yesterday after nearly 16k on the the PZeros.

    Just been out for an early morning spin round my own little Nurburgring of A/B roads. Everything was better cornering, braking, acceleration. All very cool and I'm so much happier now.

    Going to have alignment done this morning.
    Oil and filter change next Thursday

    Trying not to push the button on new lowering springs as I'm moving to Scotland in 7 weeks so I need the money but it's so hard not too. If you read this DO NOT try and convince me to do it, I won't listen to you, honestly I won't. You should not do that, it would be unfair. Don't do it. :devil::clap::like::devil:
