She died while crossing some 2' deep water.  Was about a 50' spot covering the trail.

I'm still finding stuff and going through all the paperwork, but here is a short list:

 

BBK longtubes

BBK O/R X-pipe

Flowmaster catback

Boss 302 Intake

JLT "cold air"

BBK throttle body

C&L mass air meter

Throttle sensitivity adjuster

Eibach Pro suspension kit.  This includes springs/dampers/ and bushings at all four corners plus larger front and rear sway bars.

BMR upper control arm mount, upper control arm, and lower control arms.

BMR panhard bar

JLT catch can

4:10 ring/pinion

SCT livewire tuning by Brenspeed

Several other things I've not yet found. 

 

Luckily, all this has been professionally installed and tuned by a well-known Mustang speed shop which is actually only a one hour drive. 

I missed this list!

 

Sounds amazing.  What do you think it has for power and would you build it this way or would you have gone a different route?

Judging by my other "high power" cars I've had, I'm estimating 400 at the wheels.   The gears may be attributing to that though.  I actually want a higher gear.  I'm cruising around town at 40 in 5th gear a little above 2K.   I think I'm going to change the clutch too, even though it's brand new.  It grabs INSTANTLY and it's a total jerk.  Literally.  It jerks the fuck out of you and it's nearly impossible to slip.  IT's an Exedy "stage 2", whatever that means, but it's too aggressive and unfortunately non-adjustable. 

If I had purchased it stock, I would have started with the exhaust, then brakes, lighter wheels with sticky sticky tires, suspension and THEN I would have thrown some power at it.  As it sits right now, my first concern is audio, even thought that's pretty much pointless.  It's obscenely loud, but cruising and road noise is fairly tame actually.  Going to drop the Evils in the doors, play with some of the tweets I have, so glass the Gcon in the corner.

 If I still have it next year, I'll get some new shoes and rubber.

They had my water bottle and my rain jacket.  I unnecessarily had them loan me gas too.

He could have forgone the fuel and just hitched a ride. . . . .  Or a tow strap.

Trying to decide on carrying a spare gas tank or just getting a big one.  The latter probably makes more sense, but is $250.

So?  You won't save any money.  

You've got to buy the fuel cans, mount them, keep them filled with new fuel, buy them again when you forget them in the garage or loose them on the trail.  Or  you could just mount the bigger tank and be done with it.

I really dislike my new car.  I just can't get past the color, and the gears, and the 13mpg. . . .   Mileage may be partly operator error though.  Actually really miss driving the 'Bird.

Fucking pigeons bombed both of them today.  Feel like shit.   I love that car and it's just sitting in my driveway.  Not even a proper garage.

Hey I'm always looking for ways to sell decals, signs, banners, or photo services. I sold 10 6" decals last week when a kid outside of class was talking about wanting a logo for his jetski. Quick 120 bucks.
