Default My new build (2013 5.0)

I know some of you followed my 2012 build, now it's on to the 2013. Well, here it is, the big change.

As we go through the pics and parts they should look really familiar since they are coming off the "Original Sleeper_GT".

Before we started

Pulled the stock intake from blue to put on black

MGW from Black now in Blue

Finishing the install of the METCO UCA
Click the image to open in full size.

MegnaFlow Black Quad Tip Axleback with GT500 Diffuser
Click the image to open in full size.

Textured Black ForgeStar 19x9 and 19x11
Click the image to open in full size.

Forgot to take a picture of the one piece DS and the BMR K-member with everything on it. The K-Member is frick'n awesome even though it was a PITA. Really cleans up the underside and tons of room. The SOS gauge pod, supercharger and BAP still need to be installed along with the BMR Radiator support. I have a lot of work left, but if it wasn't for Jeff, Mike and Jason I wouldn't even have got this far in one day. Tons more pictures to come as this build continues........

That UCA is a nice piece too.

We didn't end up with nearly as many busted knuckles as I thought we would.

I spent about 30 minutes yesterday going through and organizing the small tool box. I need to do the same to the big one. Most likely I'll have to get a few more socket organizers.

I pulled the blower off the 12 and still need to install it on the 13 along with the BAP and tune. Some of the other mods I'm looking at:
-Lethal Performance GenII overaxle pipes
-Trufiber A72KR hood
-GT500 rear spoiler
-Custom painted stripe. Thinking about doing one 10 inch wide white stripe down the middle with a blue pearl clear. Then 2-4 coats of clear, then 9 inch wide white metallic stars down the middle of the stripe and another 3 coats of clear. This should make the stars look like they are floating and the stripe will give off a blue glow.

Why the change? (Like I should be asking this question considering I have had 4 2013's in the last 11 months.)

Long story,
This was my wife's ride as I have/had the '12. I had her all setup too. (Steeda shocks/struts/springs, Barton shifter, JLT CF CAI, VMP tune, Cervini hood, MRT hood struts, and RTR wheels) Her and the kids want a pool and I said something has to go. I returned her car to stock and sold the parts, but we were going to go so far upside-down I didn't want to have to cash in any investments. Now I'm returning my '12 to stock, because it's almost paid off, and we will use that money to help pay for the pool. Meanwhile I still have a cool ride. For me the saddest part is loosing my custom stripes. They are so frick'n awesome!

Pool are overrated.

Can't use them when it
Can't use them during

And they make it harder to sell your home, as most people when house looking will avoid a house with a pool 60% of the time.

But understandable with making wifey and kids happy.

Look forward to seeing the conversion.
