After much delay, the time has finally come to create my build thread. I bought my car back in June '17 with a little over 14K miles on it and I am the second owner; my car currently has 85,000 miles. The original owner traded it in for a Mustang GT but before doing so, he installed a AWE Track cbe and a COBB intake. Prior to having my engine built, my car made 528 whp and 433 wtq. Currently, the engine has been built and properly broken in but now my LPFP is at its limit so I have to upgrade that, once again, to a bigger pump before Ed can work on a new tune, which I will have done on a dyno first and then dial it in further on the street. Then, when that is finished, I will take it to the track to start testing it out. I want to see how far we can take my current turbo before upgrading to a bigger one. My car will eventually be a 1/4 mile track car which means I will gut her out of everything possible and throw some slicks on her. Everything will be documented in here, which is why I am starting this thread. Now for my mod list...

Here's my very first dyno run back on March 09, 2018. My car was not tuned at the time but had the following mods: CTS direct fit IC, COBB intake, MAP downpipe, and AWE track cbe.

Bought some new summer wheels this past Thursday. Picked up the Enkei RS05RR wheels in a Matte Dark Gun-Metallic color but they are currently out of stock so it will take 2 - 3 weeks for them to come in. So now my VMR wheels will be my winter wheels and the Enkei's my summer wheels.

Next will be some Belak wheels with slicks for the dragstrip.
