Just testing to see if I can get some pix from pc to fnsweet. These were taken late last august 2011.... b4 the steeda front + rear stb were installed.
Rear spoiler + gurney flap is from a 2012 GT-500.....and ditto with rear lower diffuser. Splash guards are just visible....and also from a 2012 GT-500. Front tires are 255-45-18 Nitto 555's on 9" wide bullitt rims. Rear tires are 275-40-18 Nitto 555's on 10" wide bullitt rims.
Roush side splitters. Hood scoop and front lower spoiler are from CDC. Roush street-race suspension (blue) was installed..but not visible in these pix. (Car lowered 1" front + back) Mufflers are FRPP FRS-500 stainless steel. 3.5" diam tips. A ton of other mods has been done since these pix were taken, including power slot rotor's + hps pads, SS-teflon brake lines, BMR uca-lca + relocate brackets, BMR A arm brace FRPP twin 62mm TB, auto tranny mods, triple aero force gauges, etc.
DSS DS + tunnel brace and safety loop are the next mods. DSS DS is supposed to be here late next week.
This is just your garden variety Roush M-90 blower. Visible is the FRPP chrome valve cover's. I have since added Brisk plugs + a VMP 94 octane (no ethanol) tune. Same 73mm SC pulley..and still 5 psi. A HUGE improvement over the Roush 91 octane (+ ethanol) tune. I'm at sea level..and temps are barely getting up to 61-62 deg F during the day...and 55-57F at night. Lousy summer WX so far.
Let's see if I can actually post pix. If this works, I'll try some more in a few days.
Looking good Jimbo! I like the rear diffuser. What one is it?
It's from the 2012 GT-500. Bought it new....from local Ford dealer. I chose it for a couple of reasons. (1) I knew I wouldn't have any fitment issues.
(2) I could then also get the optional pair of mating low profile splash guards. Then no damage to the rear bumper. Since the car is black and no stripes, it all sorta blends in anyway. The oem rear lower valance is...'ok'.... but looks like it's off a mazda..with a pair of mouse holes.
cool ride Jimbo - really like the look - nice to be able to put some pics now along with all the posts
BMR LCA relocate brackets going on my ride this weekend.... consider yourself sharing the blame
Tnx. It all started when I came across the other two black GT's here in town..( my 2010 and 2 x 2011's)...and all 3 of us were parked together when I came outa the local coffee shop! Told the wife that I was gonna alter the front+ back and both sides,+ hood, such that mine would be a one off deal. Then went off on a tangent, adding the roush suspension + blower, etc, etc. Here it is, 10 months later, and still modding it. I looked at the Boss front lower spoiler + splitter. It comes in 3 x versions. Foglamps, brake cooling ducts, or blocked off. None of em appealed to me, so was going to get the steeda front spoiler. The steeda spoiler slides right over top of the oem one in a few secs..and has a small splitter built into it. Everybody was out of stock at the time....so opted for the CDC version. The cdc version sits exactly 5.25" above the ground....and that's with the lowered roush suspension. It clear's everything..and required no painting for my application. Way more airflow through the front HE. Front + back end stick like glue.
I used the top holes in the BMR relocate brackets. That provides a 2" drop. I used the rectangular boxed BMR LCA's... 1.25" x 2" x yyy long with greaseable poly ends. Axle end of LCA's is 1" lower than level..at axle end. All my BMR stuff is in RED. They actually look really good when installed..... but are hard to see from behind. I'll photograph em when over at my friend's place.....who has a lift. Ever since they went on.... the car is 500% better in the rain. No more pulling to the left, it stays straight. Superb in the dry. Really well made relocate brackets...ESP with that added tongue up the back side of em.
