There you have it! I'll post more as they come around :)

Well the man upstairs (Tom) told me to post up some video's of the beast getting tuned and whatnot. Here you go! :)

tuning and "driving next to" a new mustang

some more tuning by the great master
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvZqBL6V6h4
and yet some more tuning...the best part is towards the last thirty seconds
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NvwFu3zVhY

and enough with the meh and onto the racing!

Bad auto-xing (second time out ever still came first in class)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXgcgrtqC3A

and racing at Illiana with a PARTIAL TUNE, not finished by any means (not even to the quality in the videos of the tuning prior to this), and noticed after I was done the squirmy steering was sticking rear breaks...I WILL make it again this year and I hope to win ;) I won't be on stock 16's and I won't have sticking rear breaks and I WILL have the star specs on with a better tune ;)

Nice list, subscribed.

avengerc4 12-10-2012 06:25 PM

Thanks! Kinda shocked noone commented until now. I didn't think it was THAT crappy ;)

Adding to the list of things to do...make a belly pan for the heat exchanger and radiator to hopefully make that work a little better as well. Picked up an aluminum sheet for super super cheap.

go wash that engine bay [neener]

avengerc4 12-10-2012 07:57 PM

I haven't washed the car in over a year the whole thing needs it lol

Black00ZX3 12-10-2012 08:00 PM

How much power do you expect out of the Powerworks kit?

avengerc4 12-10-2012 08:09 PM

Good question. It is fast. Not sure though I have never dyno'd it. If I threw a number out it would be a complete guess.

katiekay 12-10-2012 11:31 PM

I like it, just wish it was a lil cleaner, but function>form is better anyway, makes for a fun ride! Also glad that you didn't get an aftermarket bumper to replace the broken F2. Can't wait to see it and meet you at FF!

Rudel 12-10-2012 11:43 PM

I'm happy too see your old SVT in your car :D

avengerc4 12-11-2012 09:09 PM

It'll get cleaner don't worry :) I didn't know this was the final photo shoot ;) I literally haven't cleaned the car in a year since it hasn't move really in that time. Once it's finished up it'll look A LOT nicer :) Well...if it's painted by the show :)

Thanks Rudel :) Yet the seats and gauges...but gauges will soon be changed to something else.
