dyno'd at 360bhp. Delivers power from 1.5k all the way until about 6k where it falls off (tiny turbo problems), that's through 1st to 4th, 5th and 6th are practically overgears with the tune. Mind you 5th will pull to about 160mph, it'll then climb to 170.

Thank you :D. It's got 400lb ft of torque too makes it a punch in the gut when boning the car. I could probably get it on a happy dyno and have it read 390-410 just for bragging rights, but i'm a tad autistic with 'facts' and making sure things are right so 360 is the official number it's got. ;)!

Drove it to work and back like I do every work day. Tis a car, its for using.

Still hoping it will sell (5 weeks on the market) before Christmas so I can move on but I fear that is unlikely.

Driving a Mustang just can't compete with flying and certainly not with aerobatics. I just don't enjoy driving as much as I used to, when I first started driving I started going to work early so I could avoid the traffic and have a bit of fun. Now if I actually manage to get up to the speed limit on a dry clear sunny day it's cause for celebration.

I am getting weary of paying 3x as much as every one else to sit in the same traffic. My car rarely ventures above 60mph these days because other than the odd dual carriageway stretch I often find myself stuck behind one of the dreaded 45mph brigade, the constant stream of traffic preventing an overtake. I suppose I could go out on a weekend and drive it for the sheer hell of it but I'd rather spend that money on Avgas if I am honest.

Picked the daily Banger up from the paint shop after having the bumper done.

Painter a lot better than the photographer.
