    Finally got some work done on the car.

    VMP Gen II, VMP TB, ID1000s, and VMP BAP all installed and ready to hit the Dyno at Dean's Performance.


    Strange Adjustable's front and rear along with BMR Performance springs now installed. No more nosebleeds!


    Then I decided that I didn't like stripes anymore... (Here's where all the GT500 purists scream in agony)


    The end result. The car still needs a good polishing / blending to get rid of the marks left by the stripes, but you get the idea.

    Now that the stripes are gone, some wheels are in order...


    Got the bump stops swapped out for some shaved ones and then put all the wheels on. Shout out to @Tight Lines for these awesome True Forged wheels. I can't get enough of them and couldn't be happier with the way they turned out on the car.




    Managed to get a coat of Croftgate on it as well.

    And of course, the obligatory dyno video and graph... The car made 653 / 640, but it had some bad gas in it, which you can see by the odd curve. This was also the second pull. I'll be going back for another pull soon once everything is cleared up.

    Thanks guys.

    The funniest part is that I put on all those performance parts and made 100 more horsepower at the back wheels with a new suspension to back it up, but I'm way more excited about the wheels.

    I was way more excited too when I put the wheels on. I agree with Ryan, they look great on your car. I am glad they went to a good home and somebody that likes them as much as I did.
