*** PLEASE RATE MY CAR IF YOU LIKE IT! ***
The base car was a 1999 35th Anniversary Edition Mustang GT and was purchased in late 2001. The car has been modified slowly over the years to the point it is today. It's been through a lot of changes over the years. I previously had a Saleen Roots blower on the stock motor, then switched to a stock PTK Street Dominator turbo kit running 7 psi of boost. When I put the new motor in, new piping was fabricated to convert the turbo setup from draw-through to blow-through and the boost was increased to 16 psi.
In 2006, the car dyno'ed 538 rwhp and 621 rwtq using the stock plastic intake. The intake in the motor pic is with the prototype Purple Racing intake, but was never used due to a coolant leak. Since then, a Reichard Racing intake was put on, but is in the process of being tuned and dynoed. Hopefully there will be some good gains over the stock plastic intake.. especially in a turbo application.
All wrench work was done by Rev'N High Automotive in Pickering, Ontario Canada. These guys are one of the best, honest and most knowledgable shops in the province.
Airbrushing was done by Connery's Custom Paint in Scarborough, Ontario. John and Dave Connery are great guys and incredible artists.
July 28th, 2010 - HID LIGHTS
Just got my XenonDepot Bi-Xenon 8000k Xtreme HID kit and installed it yesterday. There is a huge difference compared to halogen bulbs. Pics to come.
April 15th, 2010 - JVC EL KAMELEON EXAD AVX-77 MEDIA PLAYER
Replaced my good old JVC KD-ADV6160 DVD/CD/MP3 Head Unit that has served me well with a new JVC El Kameleon EXAD AVX-77 media player that has a 5.4" wide proximity touch screen, bluetooth, and USB playback. This is probably one of the best decks I've ever used!
October 2nd, 2009 - ALUMINUM FLYWHEEL REPLACED WITH STEEL FLYWHEEL
Ok, I hated the aluminum flywheel for daily drivability so I replaced it with a steel one. The additional weight and rotating inertia of a heavier flywheel definitely makes daily driving much better. See PAGE 3 for the current parts I have for sale!
September 10th, 2009 - NEW TWIN DISC CLUTCH AND ALUMINUM FLYWHEEL INSTALLED
I had a new clutch and flywheel installed while I was in B.C. for school.. The McLeod RST twin disc clutch is organic and should hugely improve drivability over the single disc carbon/kevlar clutch I previously had. It's suppose to feel like stock but still hold up to 800 hp. While everything was cracked open, I also swapped out the stock cast iron flywheel for a Fidanza aluminum piece. I can't wait to try it when I get back to Ontario!
May 31st, 2009 - HOOTERS CALENDAR SHOOT
The car was just shot for the 2010 Hooters car calendar. It will be featured as December! I only have one pic that was shot from an iPhone. No professional pics yet. I will post up the iPhone pic though!
May 1st, 2009 - NEW REAR SPRINGS AND LOWER CONTROL ARMS INSTALLED
New Maximum Motorsports rear springs and adjustable lower control arms are now installed. The ride quality is WAY better than before!
April 19th, 2009 - A FEW MORE CHANGES
New Maximum Motorsports rear springs and adjustable lower control arms are on the way. The Eibach Sportlines in the back right now are too soft with the Panhard Bar and Torque Arm and are bottoming out. I also tried getting the windshield wiper bezel skinned in carbon fiber, but it's too flexible and the skin wouldn't work. :-( If anyone knows of a full carbon fiber one, msg me!
January 5th, 2009 - NEW SUSPENSION COMPONENTS INSTALLED
The new Maximum Motorsports Panhard Bar and Torque Arm are installed. Part of the exhaust has to be refabricated to accomodate the Panhard Bar unfortunately but it's nearly done.
November September 17, 2008 - TRUNK, INTERIOR PICS & VINYL WORK
New interior and trunk pics are posted! Check them out and tell me what you think. The ceiling and sunvisors have all been redone in vinyl. Door kick panels have been redone in vinyl with an embossed Mustang logo. The sub box in the trunk has been painted metallic silver to match the rest of the car and the amp rack has been redone.
September 6, 2008 - NEW SUSPENSION COMPONENTS
Some new suspension components were just ordered from Maximum Motorsports. A panhard bar and torque arm are on the way. This should significantly stiffen up the chassis and I've been told it feels like a completely different car. Hopefully the parts will be here next week!
I am currently looking for a ViS Carbon Fiber trunk for 99-04 Stangs. If anyone has one for sale for a good price, please contact me!

These first few pics were taken in a mall parking lot at night:
In a quiet residential area in the evening:
Fresh from Connery's:
The hood the Niche PI hybrid carbon fiber Cobra R hood with a real functional heat extractor. The hood was originally damaged in shipping and repaired with fiberglass around the edges. Although I had played with the idea of two-toning the hood, I was forced to due to the fiberglass repair. I like the look of it better anyway.
Flames were airbushed to look like they were getting sucked into the intercooler.
Here is the new motor with the Purple Racing prototype intake that was never used due to a coolant leak:
Here is the new motor in the car with the Reichard Racing intake with light airbrushing. Also, I had a new custom stainless steel coolant crossover pipe made to properly clear the turbo. The stock rubber hose was sitting on the air filter off the turbo! This one is much better. Also, the intake pipe is new and coated with a special polished ceramic by Fireball Coatings. Excuse the dirty engine bay.. I still need to do some cleaning!
Here are my wheels which were built to order. They took almost a YEAR to arrive after they were lost on the ferry from Osaka. After many months and many many phonecalls, they were re-ordered and shipped by air. Certainly not overnight parts from JA-PAN.
Dyno'ed at Steeda.ca in Milton, Ontario in 2006. 538 rwhp and 621 rwtq:
Here are some pics of the new vinyl work on the ceiling and sunvisors:
Here is a shot of the new kick panels with the embossed Mustang logo. The silver vinyl matches the silver highlights in the interior and leather seats:
Here are some pics of the amp rack in the trunk and the sub box that is molded over the right fender. The box which is made from a very lightweight high-density plastic was sanded down and painted the same colour as the exterior (metallic silver). The amp (Zed Audio Minilith) is mounted on a rack behind the rear seats. There is another amp (the 4-channel Zed Audio Draconia) behind the rear seats but I don't have pics of it at the moment.
There is still a ton of usable space in the trunk with full access to the spare tire without removing any of the stereo equipment. The trunk has a 2-piece floor which is divided right beside the sub box.
Here are some night shots where you can see the blue neon behind the amp rack:
