Ok

I got the oil changed first thing in the morning. 5w-20 synthetic and yes I stood right there and watched the whole process while the oil was being changed and I double checked the dip stick.

Next road trip from Charleston, SC to Columbia, SC on Saturday. The car performed great with a few chances to step on it when passing on the interstate. Leaving my veterans meeting in the afternoon, I heard that interstate I-26 was a parking lot so Raxiom GPS took me alternative back road route and that was a lot of fun.

It was so hot this weekend I just parked her in the garage without washing her.

Friday night will be the wash and prep for Cars & Coffee next weekend.

One other thing I decided was that I am going to install a CAI on the car not so much for the performance gains but for the improved look under the hood.

I installed a Roush chin splitter and upper grille. It looked weird with the stock lower grille so I took it off and ordered the lower one. The Roush stuff is really nice and looks awesome!!!

I took a beautiful drive up to NH from NY, took 91, it was beautiful. Left Friday Morning, arrived home Sunday night. Got a bad tank of 93 up there, and on the way home got a big crack in my windshield. Sold my set of Pypes AB as well, so here I come Borlas! Thankfully I have glass insurance. Oh, I also received my 93P MPT tune with race shifting! Can't wait to try it out today!

Drove it to the church on Saturday, then went to the beach with the youth group... we all took backroads. Yesterday I drove to a friend's house.

Did the cars first oil change. Used the royal purple 5w-20 that I got for $40 (Amazon) along with a free RP oil filter. Used my new harbor freight racing jack that I scored for $59 bucks with a coupon. Deals, deals, deals.

Plasti dipped the back of my mustang logo. Not sure if i like it right now as it really doenst match the color of my car.


I followed a black mustang GT. He ended up doing a 100 i was right behind him for a minute then i realized how stupid it was and slowed it down. He kept going 100


I also went a bit too crazy with it. After i washed it I took the corner too hard back end actually started fish tailing. It actually looked like one of those scenes you see in the movies. It was fun but i think i need to stop driving this car like i stole it. Lord knows what i would be doing if i actually got a GT.

I installed the GT sound tube. Pretty fun cheap mod.

Also pretty sure I slightly bent my right rear axle because I'm an *******. Not my favorite mod that I've done so far. Haha

I havent taken the tune route yet (canadian warranty, strict bastards) but from seeing numbers, hearing talk here on the forum and from friends in person, dollar for dollar a tune is the best mod you can do. Not only does it free up some extra hp but itll get rid of that god awful hesitation the motor has just before 3k rpm. Get bamas free tunes for life and dish out the extra couple bucks and get an mpt tune, you wont regret it.

Tuned guys back me up here lol
