I understand the fear the tuners have, I'm using mine strictly to drop intake Temps, I didn't get a new tune for the meth.  my knock sensors adds timing if my fuel is good or intake Temps are low.   If the meth kit fails the tune will just adjust to normal.

Probably the last few Mods for a while. I threw on the 3.85 pulley(24psi) and regulating it with the boost controller / wastegate.  Still working on my boost settings but so far low boost 10% Duty cycle is 4.8lbs, 75% Duty cycle gives me 8psi,    boost hits pretty hard and fast now. Also got the watts link on, definitely one of the best Mods I've done to the car. Rides like a totally different car. And last I finally broke down and get my 3.31 gears installed. Driving manners greatly improved with the gears, 1st gear is usable again and I'm averaging 17mpg.

Watts link is great on winding roads and hooking up the extra power but hell on bad road.  I still enjoy it.

Been wanting 2013-14 Mustang tail lights for a while but couldn't justify spending 800-1600 on them.  Found a pair on ebay from a crashed vehicle, both lense had cracks but were easy to repair with epoxy,  their definitely not show car quality and you can definitely see some of the repairs up close but I'm overall pleased with them, especially being a fraction of the price. Once I added the trim pieces it should hide all of the repairs except 2

Tail lights turn out great with the bezels,  also found a steal on ebay for some weld rts wheels so I decided to pick them up.

Finally decided to pull the trigger on some different seats, the motors in my stock ones had all stopped except for the forward and backward motion. saved 45-50 pounds by switching to these.

Small update, I picked up some low mileage 1000cc injectors and some new fuel rails in preparation for the switch to e85 once I get to Ohio. Mustang madness might be my last outing with the car gonna have to ship it here soon.

Also added a new 1 liter catch can. This one got rid of all the oil vapor/smoke I was seeing with the other
