Saddest thing is- Most people have SOMEWHAT a sense of humor, and at the end of the day I was JK, but obviously Johnny doesn't play well with others.

This one is on me for making the thread go haywire lmao Sorry peeps

I didn't know some of the seniors here act like a jerk LoL! Oh by the way about the animation? atleast i know how to make it? not like you man? a damn fckn senior who act like a jerk? Are you jealous to my ST or what?"


I did my best to refrain from responding, but how can I not with the amount of grammatical & punctuation errors, while proceeding to literally say "so idk you're a dumb? Or really a dumb"

No friend- I believe you may need to attend Elementary School again to brush up on some things.

Back to the thread/build- I like it ��
Well this got you a temp ban.

Just leave the poor guy alone. There's plenty of other threads on here.

I just did what you did, post recognition. You should have edited yours though.

Now back to the build thread.

You gotta throw some tire grease on there to make the wheels really pop!!
I usually do but I've been lax on the cleaning. Also, the weather has been **** here lately.

Just a quick little update. I'll be getting the last of the insurance settlement from my accident in a few weeks. I'm thinking of picking up the following. Opinions?

JST Access Port
https://jst-performance.com/collections/custom-tuning/products/cobb-ford-accessport-v3-w-protune?variant=37478124999
JST is a popular tuner that many people recommend, buying a new AP plus the unlimited tune is a good way to go if you plan on revising/modifying throughout your ownership of the car. I've seen unmarried AP's for sale starting around $400 so you could save some money going that route, but for ease of mind/simplicity/timing buying the package with JST is not a bad idea.
I've been tuned by Mountune (previously) and Tune+ (currently). Both tuners have been great. Mountune is definitely a little more conservative and I REALLY love the tune I have from Adam at Tune+. I need better grippies to really put down the power I'm getting.

Yeah, purchasing a used AP scares me a little. I'd rather buy the JST new with the unlimited tuning as I add more parts.

Added 15% tint to the sides & hatch windows and rain guards to the windows. Ordering the CP-E exhaust and a JST access port next week. I hear they're going to have big Father's Day sales.

JST for the WIN

I ordered a Cobb access port from JST on Monday afternoon and had it on Tuesday. The rest of my order from JST is due Friday. I installed the program on my Surface and updated the firmware on the access port.

then, I uploaded the Cobb Stage One 93 map to the car and took it for a quick ride on my lunch break. I am amazed at the difference in the vehicle. It's like driving a completely different car. The front wheels broke loose all thru 1st gear and part of 2nd.
I saved the base map, filled out my form, and sent everything off to Brian @ JST. I had my custom base map back in under an hour. I am truly stunned at how the car acts now. I'm going to try and get the data logging done on Thursday night.

On a side note, the CP-E Austenite exhaust gets ordered on Sunday. I'm getting it with the black tips.

Special Update

No mods but a special update for me. The car is officially paid off. Took 9 months and an insurance settlement but it's all mine now.

Exhaust!

The CP-E Austenite exhaust was ordered on 6/7 and received on 6/21. There was some delay as the black tips were still being manufactured. CP-E was kind enough to ship my order with the Titan tips then ship the black tips once they were done.

What could be in the box?

Oh snap!

The bolts to the down pipe were rusted on so I had to cut them off with a die grinder. Yay for air tools!

Getting this out is not easy when you don't have access to a lift.

Exhaust! Part 2

The new setup

Couldn't put the tips on as they sent me two different size clamps.

No tips

Quick Rear shot

I know it's not everyone's taste but I like supporting the companies of performance parts I use on my ST. I'm also a Scifi geek. Here's a quick shot of my hatch window. More on the way. Oh, and there's my Instagram tag. Give me a follow. Thanks!
