another few updates i got the exhaust all fixed and today went to try a new tune but before I did I checked the coolant levels and oil, as I pulled the dipstick out I came to find the tip busted off some how? and I switched it to a regular Zetec dipstick?

so I tried used a magnet to remove it after I drained the oil and got nothing so I had to drop the pan and found it at the bottom of the crank as it was sitting right at one of the drain holes to go into the pan.

thankfully it doesnt looked like it caused any damage its not chewed up or anything..

after some running around today and changing my MAF around I finally have a good tune that works, I got to do my 4 min idle and my 1500-5500 rev's so hopefully I just needs a few smaller adjustments to be golden.



I'm still hoping for an okay to drive it to fest tomorrow if not I'll be riding with my old man down

to keep this update short and sweet, I ended up getting the green light at the last min to go ahead and make the trip to FocusFest as my main goal was to destroy the competition in the car audio area. with that being said I just edged out a guy that hit around 140 DB with one 12'' sub

I ended up taking a first place trophy home with me but to my surprise the judges also liked my car and I won some awards I never expected to even come close to getting and to this very moment I'm still in shock that I won
