    Slowsix's project 3pointh8

    I'm currently avoiding studying, so here is a bit of a history on my turd box. I know some people may remember my build thread from the UGH days, so here is a shortened/update version of it.

    Current Mods:
    Engine/Drivetrain:
    Windstar upper intake swap w/65mm TB
    8.8 swap with 3.55 gears
    t5 5 speed swap
    Ram HDX clutch
    MGW short throw
    EGR Delete
    Ported lower intake with imrc delete
    Tma turbo hotside kit
    Turbonetics 6665 t4 turbo .81 a/r
    3" intercooler piping
    Procharger 3" race intercooler
    Division x 340 lph fuel pump
    39 lb fuel injectors


    Visual:
    03/04 Cobra Front
    20% tint
    Mach 1 Grill Delete
    6000K Hid's, 3000K fogs
    Silver fr500 wheels, 17x9 and 17x10.5 255/40/17 and 315/35/17
    sequential, smoked tail lights
    GT Sidescoops
    CDC Hood Struts
    Wingless Trunk
    Corbeau cr1 seats
    Autometer triple gauge pod with aem wideband, autometer oil pressure and boost gauges


    Suspension:
    gt take off rear sway bar
    Front Strut tower brace
    eibach prokit
    UPR tubular rear upper and lower control arms w/ poly isos
    KYB GR2 rear shocks
    MM XL Full length sub frame connectors
    Upr tubular front k member

    The car when I first bought it 4-5 years ago - 25K on the odometer


    did tint and exhaust first


    eventually got some 03/04 cobra wheels


    some longtube exhaust


    swapped to a windstar upper intake (yes, from a minivan)


    and eventually cut the springs


    cleaned up the engine bay and got a strut tower brace

    thanks. She moves okay. Bit laggy. Definitely a lot faster compared to NA though.

    Looks great! Same questions as gmkillr. You have some slicks or drag radials to have some fun at the track?

    I do not. I don't go run often enough (although I'm there pretty often) to justfify slicks. I would like to borrow a set sometime and see what she does if I get her to hook though.
    Although I may end up breaking some shit then, lol

    Nice. That car has come a long way. I ran 12.70s @116 in my brothers v6 with just 375whp and similar 60s. Your car should be solid low 12s with decent tires and better 60' times.

    I've talked to your brother quite a few times about his car. I think I bought the a pillar pod and that rear bumper off of him.
