Same. If I had any sort of beater my car would already be on the market.

That's what I plan to do eventually, anyway.

I keep getting to the point of where I serious think about returning my car to stock and selling it. Then I wash it, give it a coat of wax and tire/trim dressing and my mind changes. I still want a truck bad.

Ordered a torq 10fx along with some lake country yellow/orange/white pads and HD Speed. I cant decide if I should order some menzerna 2500 and m105/m205 as backups or not..... Shit's expensive lol

Well started out on this forum with a 2001 v6, then got a 1989 5.0.....









And now I own a Coyote 2011, premium, mt82, 400a, security package, factory hids, 3.73s, brembos, Steeda cai, Borla S type axle back, lowered a little bit (not sure on what yet), and came with a sct x3. Only has 50k miles on her (50,5xx). Wasn't sure what tunes were already on the x3 but know they were from at least 3 years ago so I ordered a tune from Lund and waiting for it.

I'm having one hell of a time getting this damn car lined out. Seems like a new issue every day.

I'd skip M105/205. I don't like it. I've used HD Cut and HD Polish in their place and will never use anything else. It's amazing, very little effort and minimal dusting.

Let me know how you like Speed. I've been wanting to try it but haven't ever gotten around to buying any.

Will do. I'm wanting to get a backup but not sure what I should get. I've heard great things about HD adapt but it's hard to find. I won't start working on stuff until the week of may 7th. Finals will be in full force from now till then.

I used M105 on a 99 Cobra, with an orange pad, and it worked really well. Finished it with HD Adapt. Sad, they quit making adapt. I absolutely love that product.

Here's a 50/50 with ONE pass of M105 and an orange pad on that Cobra.

EVENTUALLY, but I'm sure everyone says that. I wouldn't consider it a mod but deleted the resonators yesterday. Gave me the exact sound I was looking for waiting on my Lund tune still to see what kind of difference there is from the unknown tune that was already on it from like 3-4 years ago. But it'll make me feel a lot better knowing it was tuned by someone good. What do you guys think I should do next? I don't want anything too crazy for a little while. But oh man are Yotes fun as hell to drive.

*EDIT* I did order one of those all in one gauges too from AM as well as the Roush vent pod, I forgot the name already oops. But I'm a nerd for wanting to know afr and things like that. Can't hurt anything.

offroad midpipe, rear suspension (lcas, lca relos, uca+mount, phb+brace), and mgw shifter. Those are all game changers.

Thanks, I'll most likely start with suspension. So far it only has lowering springs lol. It does have a Barton short throw already though.

105/205 works good I just hate how much it dusts. To me it dusts to the point you basically have to wash the car again instead of just a quick alcohol wipe down as it gets in every crack and crevice. HD Cut works just as well but dusts 1/5 as much IMO.

I've actually got a large box of detailing stuff I'd let go very cheap.

A bottle of 105 and 205 is in it. I'll try to remember to get a list this week and let yall know first.

I will always say that, when these cars have bolt ons, go with Lund. My car ran HARD for what it was. intake/x pipe/Lund and I was doing 94-96 in the 1/8th... If you want to do some cheap mods that make a hell of a difference, do as Pauly said.

-Offroad X
-Lund tune
-LCA's
-LCA relocation brackets
-UCA

BMR all the way on the suspension goodies too; they're on their A game. I can say that with those mods I listed above, I went from losing to my friends bolt on 2000 Cobra R by about 5 lengths to me winning by 1-1.5. With literally an offroad x and a Lund base tune.

---------- Post added at 06:04 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:03 PM ----------

Pauly; my car has been giving me fits since I got it back. Vacuum leak I can't find, throwing missfire codes, now Chris thinks it's making more boost than my Leash is saying because it is moving a lot of air. Wish I woulda sold this thing when I had the chance lol

Thanks for the suggestions too, I'll for sure go with BMR. Offroad X can be an issue with where I live, so I'm hesitant on it. I am waiting on my Lund tune though, ordered it last week, hopefully I'll have it this week. Installed the Aeroforce gauge and Roush vent pod today during my lunch break, mainly for the afr. Idle it fluctuates from 13.8-14.2 wot is a steady 11.8. Pretty sure those aren't ideal numbers, and I know the Lund tune will sort all of that out. On a side note, I can't get enough of listening to my Borla S type axleback with resonator deletes lol. Sounds perfect to me.
