    O2's can be a pain depending on where the bung is and how much room you have. Everything from spinning them counter-clockwise till they "drop-in" to the thread to winding up the wiring so that it would unwind as I thread it making for less resistance has helped me in the past. I love being able to put them on the pipe or header collector before install but that isn't always an option and you often have to be persistent and have patience. Keep at it. Matt

    Good stuff man, bet it sounds amazing! Matt
  3. What are your ET goals this ear?

    Yeah ill be doing baselines on the Bias Plys for a little while and then Ill likely do a JLT, tune, throttle body and MIGHT skip the pulley route and go straight for a take off 13-14 blower. Full bolt-on/pulley/tune 2010-12's are in the upper 500whp-600whp range at best with the factory Eaton blower being the holdup. Swap to a 13-14 TVS blower and injectors and your looking at 100+whp gain and the throttle body, intake etc will work nicely with it. If I can swap pulleys for dirt cheap then I would likely do it just to see what it picks up at the track but if not Ill skip it. Matt

    You should kill mid 10's without even trying!!! Im gonna shoot for dialing in the driver mod on the GT500 and initially see what it takes to break into the 7's and then see if the Shelby, bone stock power wise, has enough to break the 7.52 PB I had in the GT with full boltons, exhaust, 18 manifold and E85 tune. Honestly, if the track is there, the air is cool enough and my driving can catch up quick Id say it should run that or damned close as it sits on the Mickeys. After that...I will do like always and throw some parts and a tune at it and watch it get quicker and quicker. Would like to see 6's maybe this year but that might be a little too ambitious. Depends on how much $$$ I decide to throw at it. Matt

    Not anytime soon. Its $$$ and I still like being the master of my own fate The 6R80 cars are unbelievable tho...shows the true potential these cars have. Even relatively stock cars are going WAY faster than they should for the mods done. For now Im enjoying shifting day to day and Ive noticed the warmer it is out the better. Only track time will tell tho. Nice thing is, I may have to wait a bit for the intercooler coolant to chill out a bit between runs but not to let the trans cool! Matt

    I'll likely not make enough power or want to be competitive enough (or want to spend enough $$$$) to want to do that. Damned if 6r80 swapped gt500's aren't picking up unbelievable gains at the track but I still like rowing my own for the time being! Matt

    The other nearly identical house we tried to buy had a pit in the garage. I was all about it for oil changes and such but it was in a bad spot and a pain in the ass to open up and get into and required opening the garage door to get into which I wasn't keen on. I'm with you, would love a basement or even just a small room dug under the house somewhere easy to get to quickly. Matt

    Good to hear. Ha nice, I would love a basement (unfinished or not). Shoot...I negotiated on the new house to have the previous ownered remove this giant storm shelter that was very inconveniently taking up an odd space in the garage and not two days into moving in a REALLY bad storm rolled through and as we huddled in the tiny cramped hall closet thats mostly taken up by the HVAC ducting I kicked myself for it.

    Thats the part that Ide be looking at veeeeeeeeeeeeeeery closely lol Matt
  14. Random thought thread

    Ive always wanted one and woulda likely looked at a couple had I not got the GT500. Ive heard they are super tough and can take a beating BUT with the bigger blower and the miles you might want to check it over with a fine tooth comb just to be for sure. If properly maintained the miles wouldnt scare me otherwise! Crazy. Never a good thing, hoping for the best for those involved. Matt

    The ST and GT both failed WITH rear 02's but they werent readied in the tune. For the ST I had the tune changed and a CEL popped up. A 90* spark plug defouler on the rear O2 fixed that. On the GT I just had Lund send me a tune with them readied and it passed no problem. Matt
