Finally a break from the bad weather we've been having and I was able to spend some time on the car. Changed the oil, plugs, rear diff. fluid, and fuel filter. All the fluids looked to be in good shape but were changed for peace of mind. I wanted to do the trans fluid but didn't have the right size hex so that will have to wait, as well as the brake fluid flush/bleed & CDV delete. I wish I could've gotten to it today but the weather decided to cut me short.



Also put in the license plate delete strip from Bavarian Auto, which makes the car look so much cleaner. New headlight lens' and black grilles (still undecided on these) will be here tomorrow. I had just enough time to spray some Sonax on the rear wheels while I had them off and couldn't believe how well that stuff works!

Nice work so far. Good looking car.

I too came from an 04 mustang. Mine was supercharged. Miss the sh1t out of the HP but do so love my ZHP.

H&R sport springs this weekend!!


PS: You need a garage or a buddy with a garage so you can work in any weather...

Nice, my 5.0 was supercharged as well. I definitely miss the hp/torque, just the general pull of the car on a straight, but to me, the ZHP is money for DD duties and hopefully some track days soon. What'd your moosetang put down?

Trust me, nothing I want more than a garage right now. Fresh out of college, so the townhouse parking lot will have to cut it for now. Good luck with the springs, definitely my next mod after an intake.

Yeah the ZHP is my DD and way easier to drive everyday and still fun.

I was putting down about 350 to the pavement on a Procharger supercharger from american muscle.. Not a bad system for the 4.6.. I have a dyno chart somewhere but havent had that car in years..

Awesome car


One small thing though, your side indicators are the wrong way round.

Nice car! Nice to see you getting ahead of the maintenance immediately.

One tip for you, when working on the car keep the wheels face up. While the tire may be wider than the wheel, it isn't by much- and the face can easily become scratched on a pebble or the like on the ground.

Thanks for the tip, that actually should be common sense but I just popped the wheel off. The 135's are pretty rashed at the moment anyway, I'm planning on refurbing them whenever I get a free long weekend.

Steve, how do you like the Hotchkis sway bar? I know when I had this on my 323i, I loved it!

Ride height is perfect by the way

Thanks Charlie. Took me quite a few adjustments to get it there.

I can't compare them to anything else, but I can't think of a bad thing to say about them. Install was flawless and they perform great.
