Could you please show me how you mounted the battery like that?

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.

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.

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

Very nice. Are those rsf5's? What size spacers your running? 

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

Not extremely happy about the dyno results considering the condition of the car and the modification list. However, I did make some adjustments to the boost and ignition shortly after the dyno session that would I think would have netted an additional ~10WHP and 10WTQ.

If I get a chance I may try to take it back out for one more run
