Once my tax return comes in, I'm sending the block out for sleeving.
That process takes 1-2 months. By the time it's back, I'll have the money for the new pistons.

Little update
These are non performance related. I tinted my windows. I have 50% on the windshield and 35% on everything else. I have a premium steering wheel (I need to get all the buttons to work at some point). I have the interior out as I'm painting it black. I purchased black cloth seats.


Now, as far as performance goes... once my tax return is in, I will purchase diamond pistons. They are $1395, for those of you that are interested. They include wrist pins, total seal rings, ceramic top coating and moly side coating. I'm dropping to 9.5:1 cr this time (yes yes, you told me so), and I'm overboring it to a 3.9 (since sleeves are next).
I guess I'll no longer be a "boss 227" lol

I am late but am surprised with the tint. 50% on windshield! Man, that's bold move. Is it legal in your state? IL doesn't allow any tint on windshield at all.

No the legal limit is 35% all the way for front doors then the back is dark as you want. I don't know Alabama law on the windshield. But the whole windshield is illegal asf. It's probably only 5 inches from the top of the car.

I also want to tint the whole windshield, not for darkness but for UV and heat blocking. But gov doesn't allow.

GT500 dash is in.
going to attempt to get the gt500 gauge cluster to work during spring break, too busy to mess with it now

going to get most of the gt500 interior in my car.
Cloth black seats going in soon.

I'm going to add sync and the premium sound system to my car, basically

I am going to hopefully install the gt500 o/a pipes tonight. should quiet down my car a lot (since the mufflers will be hooked up)

I got a ridiculous deal on all this, so i didn't really spend much money.

I did genuinely mean it as a compliment. Even though it came out as a backhanded one. You've put a lot into the car and it shows. The end result just proves a V6 Mustang is worth modifying.
