Knowing BH it probably has "I'm not" a.... Sticker on it :lol: :lol:

In other news - Not quite today, but Sunday. I set a new Personal Best for removing the bumper on the car.... 13minutes flat.

I also removed my old splitter with the lacquer damage and fitted a new one. I've also removed my headlights and Fortis drove from London up to mine to collect them and convert them from a test batch, to a full final customer set.

Done a shedload since my last post on here:

Painted someones engine covers ruby red and black
got a new order for engine covers in red, black and chrome... so going to work on them tonight

on my car:
Added intercooler
boost leaked my IC charge pipes
Fixed that
Boost leaked it again
fixed that again
now all good

Added downpipe and WGA (With higher pressure spring) - about 10psi vs 4/5psi with 3mm of preload.

Downpipe was a pig, didn't fit the car, the cat rubbed the steering column, MIJ in Walsall fixed this by realigning it and cutting pipes and shiz.

Now datalogging the new tune on it. to refine it.

Added black metal mustang valve caps.

Going to update sync to v 3.10 from 3,08 soon as well.

Here's some pics of my work (and some spiel to go with them)

Okay here's the downpipe as promised, and WGA and my valve caps.

Downpipe before, cat rubbing against the steering column
Image

Cat and flex pipe after modding to fit:
Image

Welded new bend
Image

Moved the hangar over majorly, welded to the mount point, as i didn't want to fuck the oem fitment too much lol.
Image

Cat and steering column, a lot of space now (the cat sits above and about 13mm to the LEFT OF THE STEERING COL NOW)
Image

Wastegate installed
Image


Valve caps
Image


Thanks again Pumabuild & MustangMustHaves & MIJ performance!

INTERCOOLER

Image

Comparing new vs stock shit
Image


TINTED HEADLIGHTS:
Image

New tune+ tune (well this is the IC version, it's now got a WGA/IC/DP version)
Image

Comparing CAT vs Ambient temp: 17.89 ambient vs 57.1 charge temp. Difference of about 40 celcius. (STOCK IC)

Image

ETS ic:
Ambient temp - 11c vs Charge temp 18.9c. Difference of 8c

Also added indicator fins

Dyno'd... Set the turbo alight...

call me TurGLOW powered.

Image

Now the info on dyno:
Info

Dyno: Maha 2 Dyno, 4wd, running obviously on the rear rollers, two contact points.
Day: Dyno Day with overclockers UK, was third car to run.
Mods to engine: Denso itv22 plugs, ETS intercooler, Air Raid Intake Tube, Velossa Tech Ram Air Intake, K&N Panel filter, Tune+ Wastegate Actuator, Cobb Downpipe with High Flow cat (re-engineered to fit a RHD), Magnaflow Competition Cat Back, @Tune+ Tuned (Revised and set in stone)
Mods to mechanical shiz: Pedders XA Coilovers, Steeda Billet IRS inserts and poly inserts, Michelin Pilot Super Sport rear wheels, Rotiform R122 SPF Alloys (Lighter than stock), Mishimoto catch can. (PCV still in, not gutted, no check valve)
Fuel: Tesco Momentum 99 (Filled up to full tank before)
Tyre pressures; 32 on rears.

Figures info:
1) Ignore the wheel horse power, it's way off, the maha dyno doesn't calculate wheel accurately, if you want that I'm gonna have to sit on a hub dyno. as the wheels have 2 contacts point side it's got more resistance.
2) Engine horse power is correct, it's logged V8s at list BHP (410-415 on 5 different V8s). EB lands around 270-280 on clock. so i'm +80/90ish.
3) I don't have a pre mod comparison because I'm stupid, but i'll find an unmodded EB and ask if they can run it to get a brief comparison, last time I went I'd already done a few mods so wouldn't have been fair.
4) It sat at 100mph to warm upm then failed 4 dyno runs due to the car shutting off, as ESC wasn't off, figures on graph are after the third run. Car peaked each run over 170mph
5) yes my turbo and downpipe went red hot
