I ordered the car sight unseen and didn’t even test drive it before. I asked for white as my first pick and was only told that I would be happy by my salesman.

The first time I ever saw my car

I was always planning on building the car origanally I was looking for around 300hp I dynoed stock at 220hp240tq on a mustang. So just aftermy first oil change I installed all my bolt ons CAI, DP, Exhaust, IC, IC Pipes and a terrible PPC tune

Because I had that terrible tuner I added meth to control the knock. Also during the first winter I added a southbend Stg4 clutch, Fidenza aluminum flyfheel, ZZP mounts, ZZP stainless brake hoses, HP+ pads and 6k HIDs

Well I had my Hahn intercooler split on a weld and didn’t notice it right away so it blew up my turbo. I talked to Matt at Turbobay and got hooked up with one of the first K04rs.I had enough with the **** tune so jumped on the HPT team added the ZZP gauge pod switch to a ZZP intercooler with cast endtanks also lowered on Eibach springs

As I have terrible luck so driving a buddy home I bottomed out and took out my Intercooler and Rad. 2nd IC of the year

I’ve been told that I have an issue of not sleeping and just staying up late thinking of how to get more power from my setup and I was confused on how that 65mm wheel can’t hold boost up top. So one night I had an idea to test out a higher pressure actuator and wow it was the wake up call for that turbo!! I now was able to hold 28psi to my redline and have tested 30psi to 7k!! On pump and spraying meth I’ve seen 39lbs/min flow and I’m sure on e47 it’ll break 400hp

I’ve posted a ton in the K04r thread you can check it out here

So I raced a 5.0

And a roll vs a buddy’s fully bolted K04 car

I was really happy with how my car had been running on the bigwheel but I had been in love with the 7163 since I saw it was coming out and made the jump but I had a slight 5th gear set back again and Jon (SylverSS/SC) once again hooked me up with a LSJ LSD F35

Jonathan (Soundjunky) lent me his spare Intake manifold so I could make a mess of it! Plus some exhaust bit so I could get the coated after I ported them

I bought the turbo with the high boost actuator and it liked to run at 32psi so I switched to the medium and max was 29psi so I bought a Turbosmart dual port actuator now I’ve hit as high as 34psi and but currently am on 28psi. If you buy an EFR get one!

I'm thinking of custom making a 3+in intake with my buddy Kyle who did Jon's custom DP and getting it possible ceramic coated for heat control
