thank you sir. some people dont care for it until they see it in person. it does help with air flow and really helps keep the engine temps low. plus its pretty light weight.

ok so she was tuned yesterday.....slightly. on a dyno dynamics dyno (which i guess reads very low compared to a mustang dyno) she put down about 225-230whp, on 91 pump, 19lbs of boost, on misfiring spark plugs. the spark plugs were so fouled this guy just couldn't get it to hook up and at aroun 5000rpms the car would just stutter. he did however fix it so that when i get new spark plugs, they wont burn out so quickly so ill get another tune in january. we didn't even turn the meth kit on.

i am disapointed as i was shooting for aroun 280-300whp, however, the car pulls way better than it ever did, even on 100 octane, and the stutter i felt before aka misfire is practically gone. i would imagine with the new spark plugs, 3inch dp, and intro of meth we'll be rollin alot better. stay tuned (no pun intended)

on the dyno i was on yesterday, add %15 of 230 and thats what i'd hit on a mustang dyno, supposedly.

the swap came with ngk iridiums but the tuner said he liked copper plugs so i'll go check those out today. he said i'll notice an immediate difference when i switch the plugs.
