Thanks Tony, but there's no way I can run the car on a stock tune

It's the newest combo between the smallest pulley and new throttle body, not sure exactly.
If I knew, it'd be fixed by now

Took a drive today and took some pics. Can't believe she's almost 6 years old. She was detailed with M205 on a gray pad, then Blackfire sealant, topped with M305 glaze.

Been a loooooong time since I whipped the Nikon out.

I finally finished the Cobb online training course to get full access to my tuner. Now I can go into the files and change all the numbers in the program. So far, all I've done is update my tire circumferences, and I figured out what I need to change when I swap out the gears in the rear end. Those are pretty simple changes. I have no intention of going in and messing with any of the numbers for ignition or fuel; I trust the engineers who wrote the programs are way better at making the engine run right than I am.

Waaaaaayyyy different engines. The Trinity being the better of the 2, (in my opinion), although the Coyote is no slouch!

I guess what I'm getting at is that Pete or Josh is more than likely going to write you a new tune for your car. "Most" tuners turn off the 02 sensors when tuning, but I am 100% certain that VMP does not for this specific reason for emissions. Which makes sense why we're seeing a lot of people wit the same issues with the 02 sensors not being ready and what not all of a sudden.
A forum member that bought a 2010 Roush Hammer, (gorgeous and fast car and also RARE!) from a guy in Florida where they don't have emissions testing, also has the same problem. I'm almost certain that his tune will be rewritten as well. He's actually bringing his car to Pete sometime soon on a trailer. He lives in Rhode Island.
Good luck bro!

Ok - bad pic alert! I have some iPhone pics I took this weekend. I went to the farmer's market downtown with the wifey and kids. There was a car show nearby, so I drove Marilyn, while the wife drove Portia with the kiddos. Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you... that is my wife's Prius behind me. A mustang and prius, the ultimate polar opposites

But at least they're completely buffed and swirl free - 6 and 5 years old respectively.



Then I did a Target errand... and I wanted to show you guys where I parked.



If you squint enough, or use a binocular, this is what she looks like up close!!!

Well boys and girls,..........I just "acquired" about a GORGEOUS, low mileage, super clean, Ruby Red with white stripes GT500.
It's stupid gorgeous and has only 3,700 miles. (Not sure about the Carfax or 1 owner part yet. I sent in an email about 1o minuted ago with a bunch of questions. They are closed on Sundays and Mondays.)
Right now, it's just an "inquiry". So we shall see what happens.
Everything happens for a reason, so if it works out, GREAT. If not, I still have a killer car and it wasn't meant to be.

3700 miles? It's worn out. Can you get a high mileage discount?

I'm surprised Tony's even considering it. His standards have plummeted.

LMFAO


Yeah,...only 3,700 miles. Super clean. It is 100% stock.
I would be the 3rd owner. (The second owner bought it from them and drove it 100 hundred miles and traded it in. I'm not so sure I want to be a 3rd buyer, even if the car is pretty gorgeous. lol)
We'll see what they say about the price. I'm working that angle first. Then, I have to see how much they give me for my car. Have them write me the check for the full amount, minus 10K which I would use as the down payment. Use the rest of the check to pay off the truck and put a good amount of money in the checking account to make double payments.
That's the ONLY way this would work. I don't want to be car rich and wallet poor.

^ Tony - my advice, pay off your truck first. For that matter, don't get another car until you save enough to pay that off in cash too. Loans are never good. If you're getting a loan, you're not ready to buy a car And if you must do it, why not just put the money from the Roush right into the principal of the Shelby? Then on top of that, make double payments? The interest you gain in checking has got to be lower than interest of the Shelby, right?
