Yep. And that company is full of rude ******bags but im not surprised because that's exactly what I've heard. No tracking, no confirmation email, but I've certainly paid for it. I call and they told me they sent it out on Tuesday...

Like a kid in a candy store looking at the progress man.

If you fire it up tonight you should post up a video on IG at the very least.

It should be on this weekend, prob won't be able to fire it up for a week or so after that unfortunately because I am still waiting for the last guy to get his tuner un-married from his car. He is carmaxing his 12 GT and swapping motors with his room mate (his motor is built and the room mates is not, plus his has seen better days lol). They are literally putting anything better from his car on anyone else's car. So currently he has no motor in his car. Once their swap happens then I get the tuner. He also needs some of my stock parts like the heater hoses (the whipple extends the hoses so I have those and it will save me a ton of hassle), intake manifold and air box. It's a delicate swap a Rooney of parts. Hahaha.

Sounds insane lol! Any little bit helps you though. Through this process there was quite a bit of fabbing. From coolant hoses to concocting PCV piping, to hacking away to make clearance for the IC pipes. I don't know how authorized Vortech distributors/installers can get this job done in 8-10, I really don't lol. Even with a lift!

I had to get rid of those ungodly holes....I should really clear bra it.....but yeah, it came out pretty solid. Love the new lower grille. Was debating on putting the provided mesh in and decided to do it just to save the IC from debris and what have you.

Yeah I ordered some mesh to use on mine. I decided it wasn't worth the risk leaving it wide open.

Eric's 2014 Mustang GT build thread

Just finished the standard datalogging. Now I have to decide if I'm going to road tune with Lund, or dyno tune with a shop local to me/Lund. I'm thinking the former to be on the safe side...

The car is running healthy. Temps are good, A/F's are stoich, and it sounds like a damn freight train in just vacuum...lol. Can't wait to feel some boost in this thing.

Your ride looks pretty nice. If I was into the Clean not Mean look I could go for something like that. But I like my Mustangs with more of a Mean Look. My car is Silver...But all Trim Louvers, Hood Vents, Hood Scoop, Spoiler, Rocker Stripes, Badges, etc. I did all in Black.
A few more pieces to finish the cars looks & I'll be done with appearance Mods. Will be posting before & after pics by end of July.
But all in all....I like a lot of the mods you did !!!

Thanks bro. What I'm going for is an original look (which is extremely hard to do owning America's most beloved sports car), while making it my own at the same time if you will. I think I've achieved that so far, but I don't think I'm quite done yet lol. It make not look mean to some, but when I can post a video, you may change your mind after hearing it...😁

I know what you mean about making it your own. I haven't seen any like mine as of yet & I like that. I get tired of hearing people say you're using a Gt 500 this with a Roush that & a C.S. this. If I wanted my car to look like everyone else's I'd buy all the same model stuff. But I want it to be different & so far I love everything I've done. Looks better than 90% of the stangs around my part of town & I get a lot of compliments on it.

I can't get into boost until I'm allowed by Lund lol. Tomorrow I've been instructed to do a 2500-5k WOT pull in 3rd gear. Last night it was all idle and RPM holding datalogging. The car feels like it wants to take off like a space shuttle and certainly sounds like it. Very very loud whistle even in vacuum. I'll be able to tell more once I do that WOT pull.

Car drives and behaves totally normal as well. No hesitations, or anything out of the ordinary with the supercharger kit installed and the new OPG's in, which is fantastic because hopefully that means we did a helluva job lol.
