  1. Thanks so much guys. It's been a great car but she's now in Ohio with a new owner. Ice cold morning but clear and the pickup was smooth. THe new owner was cool we hung out for a couple of hours before he hit the road.
  2. Thanks! it should have a k24 or bigger but no it's a 19t. thanks Jesus! much appreciated.
  3. If I get a chance I may try to take it back out for one more run
  4. It's raining! She's all back together and ready to repel water like a boss We went back to the dyno about 2-3 weeks ago. This is a 2WD dyno jet dynometer. 266 whp and 318 wtq. It's almost always disapointing taking cars to the dyno Compared to last year on the AWD mustang Dyno which came in at 252 and 300. The dyno jet is almost exactly 6 percent higher than the mustang. The tune has been refined but I believe it's essentially putting down the same amount of power so you can see how different dyno's can look based on this. Unfortunately I don't have temp and even more importantly humidity data from the mustang Thanks, we are making a jig for that bracket because theres' been quite a few people expressing interest yep. No spacers on front I believe 25mm on the back. All the liners are cut and fenders rolled. It does touch sometimes in the back over bumps
  5. Last few days have been doing a fall cleanup Redying the trim, doing touch up, clay-bar polish and wax! before: during: after.. coming soon. hopefully
  6. Sorry it's been so long without updates. Been driving the car on and off but she's more of a garage queen than anything. Occasionally she does gets package delivery duty being a wagon and all I have to keep her feeling useful :) To catch up a little several months ago got the final version of the drop in intercooler finished and installed. gave here a little cleaning and brought her down to the Euromeet 2016. I still have to get my photos posted up sorry folks! life is challenging with 4 kids and 5 businesses...I know you don't feel sorry for me but it is what it is Don't have pictures but I ran into some misfires recently with the car and after fiddling around with the injectors realized the connectors were causing problems. Got brand new connectors from Dave Barton and totally rewired the injectors with new parts. That made a world of difference but still wasn't 100 sure about them so I sent them out for testing at ARD and ordered all new orings cushions etc from FCP. Meanwhile I decided this would be a good time to strip and repaint the head and some other nasty looking parts. Just putting all this back together now actually. The injectors cam back with a clean bill of health so we replaced all the orings and reinstalled everything with the new paint finished. Also I've been chasing a CEL for idle since last summer. I don't really want to go into all the details of what we have tested, replaced etc to find the issue but but we'd done pretty everything possible ... twice to trace it up to this point. On top of that here really is no idle problem which is what makes the code really annoying. I got to thinking about the injector harnesses causing so much trouble and decided to order new 3 pin EFI connectors from Dave also and we just finished wiring those in. I'm crossing fingers the code will be gone because if this doesn't work, I don't know what will. Aaaand I just realized I never posted up those pics of the battery bracket. Sorry folks.
  7. You're a maniac! looks great though. We are all looking forward to watching your progress.
  8. sure sorry about that. It's a custom welded bracket. I just took some pics of the car and I'll get them uploaded after this weekend is over.
  9. Thanks guys!! Car is runninng great with the exception of an idle issue P0505 that I think we've narrowed down to the throttle shaft seal which is the only remaining leak that we can find. It's so nice to have everything working and looking good. It's very enjoyable to have the car running and looking the way I want it too. It's been a long time in the making. We had a day with no other work so Pete claybared, polished and waxed her. She's not perfect by any means but really nice for a 20 year old car and it's amazing how single stage paint can polish up! Got some heavy wax on the roof! I got the new core that I've been waiting for in for the prototype Drop in intercooler and we got some rough looking but functional endtanks built along with laying out the inlet outlet locations and the bracket/spacer locations. The core is 22x16x2 and is beast. We got it pressure tested and installed a couple weeks ago. Since then I've been able to get a bunch of tests run between the GPI Drop in intercooler and this new prototype. It's amazing how much more effective this one is. I can't wait to get this finished. Aaron at Beust tuning has been working hard getting tune revisions made and helping me trouble shoot stupid problems. Definitely going above and beyond to help and to really dial in the tune. After the new intercooler installation he was able to add boost and add timing in the top end and the car really pulls hard. Harder than I think it ever has in the past and very smooth. I took the car out for a 3rd gear log that aaron asked for and I was able to log Pre and post intercooler temps as well. At the top of 3rd gear WOT at 95 mph IAT's were 49 degrees on a 35 degree day. So after pull to 95 mph IAT's were 14 degrees above ambient. More information on that to come! So after the final tune revisions and some last minute wastegate adjustments I decided to get the car out to my friends out at STM in Rochester for a run on their Mustang dyno. I was not excited with the chart but still the car pulls harder than ever in every gear so numbers aside the car runs amazing and I'm very happy with that. I'd like to see what the numbers would look like on a Dynojet and there's actually one nearby so I may take it over there to get a graph on that machine too. It was a beautiful day once I got there but it rained the whole trip (2 hours each way). She put down 252 whp and 300 wtq on the mustang. Oh well I was hoping for 300/350 maybe that's a pipe dream. I don't see how this setup could be any more dialed in than it is. the good news is that with the 02 motor this car could make some real nice power even just with a bolt on hybrid billet wheel K24 and a retune. I think she could bump up 50-75 at the wheels with that one change at this point. Sooo tempting.

  10. Thanks! Oh cool i didnt' know that. well I knew babyclaude and Ricky went to school together but not you as well.
  11. been too busy having babies to post recently but much progress has been made! Sunroof-Fixed. Headliner-fixed Dash-installed and lots of bits and pieces cleaned up. AC FIXED. AC got the complete overhaul and finally works! all new o rings, evaporator etc has been done. It's very satisfying to get that fixed finally. yecchh! Added MAP/IAT sensors for intercooler datalogging work. (In the process of building a new high density drop in intercooler) These two sensors are feeding to an arduino nano board that spits out the data for me. The raw data is converted it into PSI and degrees F in an excell spreadsheet. Comparative real world testing setup courtesy of Ricky W. who has since moved out of town and is dearly missed! More info on that data later! We totally tore apart the instrument cluster 3 times trying to find a combination of parts that work. Finally got it all back together with everything working correctly. we tried mix and matching some parts that weren't compatible apparently and the speedo didn't work so it took some trial an error testing. BTW what's up with the moose' on the back of the board?? I'll get some good pictures here soon, that's about it for now. Peter's Buell
  12. cleaning up wiring. We pulled out all the wiring for the old zeitronix datalogger, gizmo EBC, and innovate datalogger. so much less wiring now! It's real Nice to have the datalogging built in to the ECU. It's unbelievable how much stuff needs to be removed to get the evaporator core out WOW what a pia.
  13. Just be gentle with it. if you're changing shades just make sure you remove the glass to get it out. Someone told me I should "shoehorn it in" which is what we did and we most likely broke the cables while screwing around with it. Clean the rails with a vacuum and compressed air, lubricate the tracks with some white lithium grease and you should be ok.
  14. sunroof woes. original one broken. Replace with sunroof from 2000 XC70 works but then breaks after we install the shade.. Install third sunroof - very carefully!! clean lubricate install new shade and it works!! hooray. I will smash you! installed! but guess what... the shifter cables are broken all of a sudden. Can a guy get a break?? New cables going in while the dash is on it's way out and now we're moving all the gauges to the a pillar and cleaning up the wiring while we wait for the evaporator to show up. next week I think this will be done
  15. Thanks for the advice! yep that's the box
  16. Oh yeah of course, I have a black dash console etc that's going in soon then I'll get some proper pics. Probably will get to dash and evaporator next week then hopefully I'll be done with the interior. I ordered 3 yards of charcoal headliner material and when it came in I just brought it down to them to glue on. It's been raining for 2 days now and I'm out of garage space! It was $200 for the farbic and the installation of the fabric haha cool I'll have to check out your thread
  17. It makes an inccredible difference. I've gone a little overboard perhaps and probably have 1.5 boxes of dynamat in my car but for me it's worth it. More progress on the interior. I had the headliner done in a charcoal that's about the same as the door panels. The 2000 trim is darker so it should look good. I wanted it to be a little different. Check out the old VS new liner pics! Tomorrow I'm hoping to figure out what's wrong with the sunroof. It only vents now and won't go back.. before it was working fine
  18. Hey Hussein it was great to see you again. Sorry about your car!! I will get some for you! Meanwhile just got the rest of the interior parts in. Waiting for the headliner material to arrive later this week.
  19. Thanks yeah The dash and door panels are on a greyhound now. I should have this together in a couple weeks. Have to fix the AC while I'm at it and relocate the gauges up into the a pillar pod
  20. It's very light IDK maybe 5# ? doesn't seem to weigh anything. making great progress.. door panels and dash are next. 2000 interior in a 95, updated 3rd brake light and super clean boot! new 2000 load bars Bad news! Finished putting the new headliner in and all the cloth fell down so now we're cleaning up the old one. I'm getting some charcoal headliner material from Welco and we're going to put this back in with the new material. Have to pull out all the work that was just done : ( Should have done it the first time round Old parts and donor car my big helper doing inventory with me
  21. trying to make some progress on the interior now. Waiting on door panels and dash but found a MY 2000 donor car for all the trim.
  22. Loading up a new tune from Beust tuning! I'm so impressed with Aarons' setup. Its' more involved than anything that I've seen before but that is a good thing because the level of quality that you get is very high. Once he's finished dialing it in I plan to bring it to the dyno to see what we see!
