Ohh soooo satisfied! (Intake, pullies, and tune - done)

Just got done installing my C&L Racer, Motoblue UDPs, and flashed to the 93 tune with the SCT X3. Started late, around 2pm, got done about 8pm. I took my sweet time with the UDPs, I really didn't want to f anything up, not to mention stopping for dinner, so it probably would have only been 4 hours if I had sped up a bit. The motoblue directions were a bit lacking but I filled in the gaps with the stangnet guide.

Scariest thing though was loading the tune. When it was throwing all those error codes and "dte odo err" stuff while it was downloading the stock tune and what not, I got worried and thought I messed it all up, heh.

Started it up, took the car down the road a bit, and it...felt....good.

I am quite satisfied with the result though. I definitely felt it in the seat of the pants dyno. Just want to say thanks to everyone on this site cuz without the knowledge that is here I would have probably had a much harder time. Here are some pics of the aftermath.

if your handy with a wrench pull your valve covers off and get some sand paper. I did mine by hand it they turned out perfect and its a mod that cost like 10 bucks cause all you need is the sand paper. Took me 5 hours I think to get them perfect.

Easier then spending 200+ if you as me

Other then that looks good. I do like that C&L went to plastic instead of alum for the racer. I was not a fan of the Alum one i would think in the summer it would get HOT

I'll probably go next Wednesday as I'm playing ball with friends tomorrow. I expect mid 13s. Traction is such a huge issue at bithlo that I know it wont be much better than that if not worse, their prep is terrible. I'm also gonna ditch my spare and emergency 60pc toolset this time. Something I forgot to do last time, heh.

Hmm, if im off from work ill go man.. I want to see what i can run on new tires.. Yeah, bithlo has the worst track in FL id say.. their prep is garbage as you have stated..and ive actually never dropped the sparetire, my tools, and this other handy bag of stuff for a flat tire n what not.. Never have i did my tire pressure either, but my friend dropped his spare tire and his pressure in the tires and gained went from a 14.3 to a 14.1 in his Acura..

What grit did you use?

Yeah I liked the plastic one too, it looks like it belongs there more than the aluminum one. Plus I'm not really a big fan of bling under the hood, I'm more the type to do things to conceal mods rather than show them off.

my valve covers are the stock ones. I cant remember what grit I used but I started out with some thing really rough and worked my way to the finest one. They went from looking stock to nice and shinny really easy to do but just takes time and patients but its worth it.

just buy a bunch of sand paper I cant remember the number i used because we had a box and i just started grabbing and sanding to see if it would work good while my block was taken apart.

I am not aloud to help when it comes to wrenching my buddy said i would break it haha so i just started to sand and they turned out pretty good. I would just get some thing pretty rough and get a bunch of different ones. I mean you really cant mess it up as long as you have another grit to fall back on.

then we just got polish and started to hand polish them when then bling...

Yeah I am not really for excessive bling either. I do want a little bit though but more of a clean look. To much chrome means to much cleaning

Bithlo isnt that bad, you have to light your tires up for about 5-7 seconds in order to get any traction tho. The left lane was where I had my fastest run! I went from a 13.8-13.7 down to a 13.2 just from doing a 7 second burnout. The first two runs I kinda did a 1-3 second tire spin..... but if you actually hold it for 5-7 seconds, your car will hook very well!

I think I might go 2marro, but I dont have a helmet!
