I thought you might like to see this stock Coyote with the R2300 SC video by Justin Starkey (VMP). He’s still a member here, but he hasn’t posted for a long time.
The original thread - Rebecca runs 10.000 @ 138 in Roushcharged 2011 5.0L

We were out at the track a few weeks ago with the 2011 5.0L automatic, dialing in some new suspension parts, everything came together and Rebecca ran a 10.000 at over 138 MPH. The 60’ time was a 1.436. She had many other 10.0x passes.

Video:

Since the last outing, we installed a PST carbon fiber driveshaft. This dropped the weight about 7lbs over the one piece steel PST shaft. This is on top of almost 20lbs we lost getting rid of the stock shaft.

We had also just installed a set of Afco double adjustable shocks in an attempt to get control of the rear end, they helped immensely.

The car 60 fts really well for just having J&M LCAs, relocation brackets, stock torque converter, and stock t-lok. We haven’t even messed with the UCA yet.

You can see how violent the launches are from this shot, the body twists all up, the low end of the TVS and the stock converter make for a very hard hitting combo.

We drove the car to and from the track, the M&Hs were down to the cord, so we will be looking for new tires soon.

The car has been getting progressively quicker, but we’ve just been doing little things here and there. The engine, trans, and torque converter are still totally stock. We have a 72mm pulley on the blower, through the stock airbox it makes 11-12psi, we’re pushing the stock fuel system pretty hard so we only run it with 110 or 112 race gas in this trim. If it had an upgraded fuel system I would not be afraid of pump gas though. Tune tweaks, suspension tweaks, good cool air this time of year in FL, etc, have all resulted in a well dialed in combo.

Yup....familiar with this car and couple. Even more hardcore since this time, that's for sure.

I didn't go for the CAI. This kit came with the airbox lid approach. I deal with a lot of wet weather and winter driving here so, I prefer an airbox. Oddly, the kit did come with the foam isolators, despite that. The airbox is View attachment 305122 just out of shot but, you get the idea.
Why only the passenger side catch can? I was told I would need the drivers side as well :unsure:

You don't need two cans. The passenger side is the pressure side of the PCV system so that's where you need the can, if you think you do.

BTW, my Roush is still kicking ass at 8 pounds. The weird light TB whistling that happened when new stopped after some break in. You can see 4000 lb fatty mcfatty Gunny Highway's performance in my sig. I am about to take this thing on a 5000-ish kilometer road trip to Vegas and Disneyland at the holiday. No worries about doing that at all, other than hoping it doesn't snow in the passes on the way down or up :O. I put some MMR relo brackets and better MMR poly lowers out back to give me some traction help.

No problem, that's how powered PCV systems have worked since 1965, a power side and an atmo side, using engine manifold vacuum.
