Hangwire, those rim you have are the same as mine. They are actually 01 Cobras because they are chrome, not like the 99 Cobras that were i think polished. IIRC. And they were an option on 02 or 03 and up GT's

And i thought they were 17x9 but maybe i measured them wrong.....

Its not going to be KB's stock tune. This is a used kit that was programmed for a different PCM code therefore will not work with my car. I'll be getting a baseline tune from a shop.

After taxes, shipping and all Tim paid right around $5,460. Paying $1000 less for only 2,000 miles aint too shabby. $4,400 is still however 4,400......lots of money.

Ahhhhh things are starting to make sense its crazy that theres such little "searchable" info out there. I remember spending hours one day trying to find rhyme and reason to these rims because I never see them on New Edge GT's. Mine say "17x8" on the inside of the rim.

Oh what a day yesterday. Yes I got the blower yesterday. But yesterday also turned out to be a day in hell at work. I BARELY had time to yank everything out of the Egyptian Pharoah Tomb of a box. I mean seriously Tim I didnt know you did work for the columbian drug cartel he packed this **** nice!

I have plenty of pics but the ancient comp at work I use only has two USB slots and both are used up by the keyboard/mouse. Was gonna post pics yesterday when I got home but I was so tired I passed out at 7PM and woke up at 4AM I was like well **** that was a wasted night I've been up since lol.

Unfortunately the guy sent me a text last week and said he forgot to ship some brackets and the BAP. He had it taken out because he was going to sell the BAP....I believe he had adequate fuel pumps in his car. Good thing he noticed though cuz I sure would have and I woulda been like ok bro wheres my BAP . BAP and brackets will be here today or tomorrow. Hes been an awesome dude throughout the whole process I told him the day I had him reserve it for me I could find somebody with $4,400 cash in hand ready to buy and he totally let me make payments instead.

I looked through every step of the install it is much easier than I thought. I did however start becoming confused at the part where you re-wire the IAT wires to the new sensor. Also started getting confused at the part where you start wiring the IC pump into the positive battery wire cluster. I think seeing those things in person will clear up my confusion. I'm also a little worried about finding bolts and hardware seeing as its not all packaged new and labeled.

P-51G - I'm now seeing what "valet mode" is and i've already decided im gonna be taking it straight to the dyno shop upon first startup. I will be using this to drive there.

Some coolant had made its way out of the intercooler during shipment and i'm hoping it didnt ruin an injector.

Anyways pics n stuff when I get home today and probably more comments/questions.
