OK, finally got some new batteries in the camera, so took a few better shots -

Just a better shot showing the size of the heat exchanger-

The old boost gauge in the Roush pod, will be replaced very soon-

New gauges are in, DR's didn't fit quite right - 03-08-2013

Finally took delivery of the SoS dual gauge pillar and the Aeroforce Dual Interceptor gauge pack yesterday. Got everything installed, took a minute or two to get it setup correctly, but overall, I"m pretty impressed. I opted for green displays, since I keep the MyColor set to a vintage looking green color too. Also went for the black face with 5.0 logos and the polished silver rings to match the dash gauges as well. Still waiting for the boost sensor kit, should be here early next week.



As to the DR's, I finally got the fronts mounted (M&H 185/55-17's) so I decided yesterday to test fit everything. The fronts went on with no issues (didn't expect any), but the rears hit the shocks and the piece that sticks out at the top of the inner wheelwell, just above where the axle comes through (I've heard it called some sort of production line support). Not bad, all it needed was a 3/8" spacer, which I had left over from the '03 car. Problem is, with the spacers installed, the tires stick out just a little too far my tastes (Lee warned me about this, he was absolutely correct!). I had the tires unmounted this morning and sold them to a local guy with a mini tubbed Fox, and ordered a set of 295/55's to replace them. Tires should be here Monday, Jegs ended up having the best price and fastest shipping on these.

I'm taking the car back in to HPP next weekend for some more tuning, still have a small issue with the idle surging after long drives. Also looking for a few more ponies! LOL!

Excellent! Another new one on Razors. I loved them on the older S197's, but was really surprised how much I Like them on the new cars. I was afraid they'd be too retro. Now if I could just find another set of 20x10's in this color!
