Starting to piece together the duct work between my air box and bottom grill!?? Need to locate small flat steel and other miscellaneous material, so it will be a few weeks before completion...
Not sure what I will do with the upper grille and intercooler/cooling coils??
Took my Mustang Ecoboost to the NMRA Spring Break Shoot Out in Bradenton FL. Tore my exhaust off and blew the air pipe between the turbo and intercooler off... Made track side repair and finished with 14th place...
1st time, I tore the exhaust up loading and unloading the car on and off my trailer. Then (after racing), I bottomed out on a speed bump. As for the intercooler, I blew the air piping apart at one of the hose to steel pipe connections.
I put things back together with new (longer) piping, clamps, etc. Shouldn't have any problems with the charge pipes, exhaust will still drag a little, I just need to be more careful.

Put together a NMRA legal system with what I had lying around the shop. Basically a 3" downpipe, feeding into a 3" straight pipe with an old school glasspack! Not pretty, but it got me thru tech and on the track!!
So my niece lived in Bradenton and I went to visit her last September. Everything travel wise was all screwed up from Covid. So the guy at the rental car desk at the airport says, we don't have the car you reserved, there isn't anything I can do about it, I'm the only one working the desk. So pick any car you like and you can have it for same price, but before you look at the list, I bet you'd like a red mustang convertible, wouldn't you? I said, man, you're reading my mind! And that's how my mustang ecoboost odyssey began.
Bought one new in January, and downpipe, catch can, intercooler and all the rest later and here I am!
I sure enjoy all the posts and all I've learned from you here. Wanted to say thanks!
