0-60 in 5.4 seconds, new personal record, .1 faster than last year's best. I credit the lightweight brake rotors for the improvement.

God I love Weathertech mats in the green car. The carpet stays so nice.
Now I would like to claybar the car if I can get up the energy.

Wow can't imaging that kind of power! I'd probably kill myself or end up in jail!

Dyno at Dallas Mustang today.

Mustang GT MT6 NA with Ford Performance Pack 2, dry filter, and Ford Performance Touring cat-back, 74F and 68% Humidity. 411rwhp/388tq

Pretty happy with the results with the mild performance modifications I've made.

411 rwhp certainly doesn't suck

1) Figured out how to get the car up in the air without a real lift.

2) Realized there is is very likely a very expensive Boss R steering rack in my future. $1G I did NOT want to spend.

3) Lost a top strut nut somewhere in the shop.

GFB DV+ diverter valve installed. Not complicated, and only a little awkward to work around my Cobb CAI. I haven't wrung it out yet, just once around the block to make sure it still runs and didn't throw any codes.

Took it out on the highway to listen to the turbo. With the DV+ it doesn't make as much blow by noise when cruising at highway speeds, but I still hear the gasp when I'm shifting, especially going uphill. No dramatic changes in performance.

Finally got to do her annual blood transfusion last night. Really enjoying my new setup. Again, no spills, no mess (even did the oil filter ziploc baggie trick), music cranked up, lights on, even took a break to eat while she drained. Took her for a drive afterwards. Delish.

AMSOIL ftw!!!

First wash of the year, finally. Still not really what I'd call clean but at least she's not embarrassingly grimy.
