is complete. A few very minor details left, but they're not even worth mentioning.

Bottom line: it's fast. The T5 REALLY woke it up and the GT40P motor is incredibly strong. I LOVE the dual exhaust and stainless headers.

I'm picking up 3.73s and a traction lock this weekend, to rebuild the rear end a week from this coming Saturday, to help liven things up. Even on the stock 2.73s, I absolutely smoked a modified V6 Mustang ten minutes after I got it running right.

150ish miles on the motor in three days. I've been trying to come off the throttle a bit so I don't warp the new clutch, but it's not easy when it sounds SO GOOD while I'm laying into it. I'm not launching or speed shifting, so hopefully things will be okay.

Still trying to diagnose a power loss at 4,000 RPMs in first gear, but it's running really strong (and loud, thanks to the damn speed bump that snapped a catalytic converter open). Here are a few pictures, since I forgot to post them already.















Well... what do you think?

It's part of a CAI kit I bought on eBay for a Fox Mustang. I swapped the intake filter for a huge K&N design. Don't know how to get the filter- a buddy who runs a Mustang shop donated it to the cause.

It's actually a warm air intake, though, since it's drawing engine air.

i made the same thing for my car.. pvc and a k&n cone filter if anyone wants to know specific details or pictures on how to do it hit me up with a pm.. not as pretty as the metal tube but it functions just the same, you can hear the k&n snort from the throttle body evertime you rev it and it sounds entirely different when you hit the gas.. only real cost is the k&N filter which is fairly pricy but hey its cheaper than the kit you would buy online.
