Well, black friday just raped my funds.

QA1 CF driveshaft

Pretty much built a Steeda Stop The Hop kit, somewhere in between their ultimate kit and their entusuast kit. No camber arms, those things are pricey...

Ugh, lol

May I ask politely, if it is costing this much to get it to your level of satisfaction; were there any other higher upfront cost cars that you were considering that would have been closer to meeting your expectations? And what were they?
Or do you just love the modification journey, as long and expensive as it may be?

"This much" isn't much. Shiz, i put way more into the ST. Which was a lesser platform.

I buy platforms that I can mod, then I tweak cars to my liking. I don't leave vehicles stock.

Very hard to beat the S550 mustang platform, and huge aftermarket.

So no, nothing really competes this platform for my wants. Additionally, I build my cars, I dont just buy them.

Switched from 5w-20 to 5w-30.

Also had an alarming perceived oil consumption. Ate like 2.5-3 quarts in 6k miles. Apparently, thats kinda normal. It's a 10quart fill with filter.

So now I am going to keep a log, cold checks, and watch the level.

The ronin valve could have kept some oil back, maybe I drained a bit more out the first time, and then 10 quarts left it a bit low.

I did a bit of reading, theres variables, but consumption happens. lol

I wanted a third key, so I bought a gt350 key, lol. BNIB OEM. Programmed it with the ford 3 fob method, worked! Just have to get my buddy to cut the hard key. Good to go.

Both, lmao.

Some eat more than others.

Hopefully the heavier oil cuts consumption a smidge.

I'll document it and hopefully it doesnt get worse.
