Showin' my SVTF some love

After putting her through our first winter I'd figure I'd show her my appreciation

What's this?


It's NIICE!


Finished.


EDIT - Guess I should share my initial impressions of the CFM race mount. I must say, it's a big improvement over the stock mount. I don't have that back and forth motion anymore when I shift. There's a noticable difference in the amount of vibration in the car now. With the extra vibration, the car feels like the RPM's are running higher so I'm wanting to shift earlier. It's not really a big deal. Doesn't bother me, I could get used to it. My only complaint is there is quite a bit vibration getting into 1st gear. Enough that I hope it tones down after it breaks in, which I've read does quite a bit.

I'm not done. Later this week, she's gettin' a dose of this.

I just put in some mobil 1 synthetic tranny fluid and it does shift smoother! Clutch feels better as well. BTW, this isnt a mental thing because I am always paranoid something is wrong. And for once, its not.
