Yeah, I saw it, I thought it was a big pothole, hah. Definitely much faster than 45, though I do love the big dip right in the middle of downtown.

Well I was surprised to see the condition of the belt. Even though the motor only has 65k mi or so on it the belt was in surprisingly poor shape even though everything else was in tip top shape. Tim really has the cleanest SVT I've ever seen.












Also it looks like Gates improved upon the t-belt tensioners per the box it came in lol. It looked different than all the others I've seen too.

Nice job on the T-Belt Paul.

That is definitely one nice clean engine bay and ride. Should I say show-ride. I could see that beauty winning a few awards for such cleanliness ...

It was the cleanest engine block I've EVER seen in a focus, seriously. Oh and Tim's mustang is a ridiculously fast sleeper mustang. Looks like any other mustang on the road till he lays into the go pedal. It's as fast as you would want a street car....seriously. Hell I'm still grinning just thinking about it! Had a blast today Tim thanks again for the drinks and the ride in the fun-stang.

Oh Paul ... as I stated on the text ... I wouldn't exactly call a Mustang a "Sleeper"

But it does sound pretty cool. Look forward to seeing Tim's Stang at one of the meets one day.
