    Glad you are happy, the butt dyno can tell a lot when the car changes. I did progressive springs and BMR suspension. Now my 16 GT needs struts & shocks to round it out. Yes to suspension 1st. for handling the twisty's! Nice write up.

    Also to add; The MT82 shifts amazingly better. In recent 39 degree weather, there was no nibble or graunch shifting from 1-2, or from 2-3. That's all just gone. I also do a bit of clutchless shifting, and that is completely smoothed out. This is the part that really puzzles me, because we didn't do anything to the diff bushings. Evidently the 3.73 Torsen really gets to whining when you do diff housing bushings.

    Our esteemed site owner recently did a Steeda suspension on my 2016 PP1 GT. Here's my impressions; I recently purchased Steeda Pro-Action adjustable shocks, struts, horizontal links, rear shock-mounts, and the Stop The Hop starter kit that comes with their subframe support braces, subframe bushing support kit, and subframe alignment kit. I then had it all installed by Peter, who works at a local shop. Shocks and struts were set at one turn out of full-soft.My first reaction, driving home, was of disorientation. The car looked the same from the driver's seat, the throttle, clutch and brakes felt the same, it smelled the same.But.....Every other sensory input was changed. What my butt, inner-ear, and hands on the steering wheel and shifter felt was totally different. This was disorienting at first, and created a situation where instead of being excited in a happy manner, I was excited in a very surprised manner. I was driving with my mouth open, completely surprised with the weird sensations I was getting, in a car I'd owned for 2+ years and was very used to. I called Peter while driving home and I'm sure I sounded retarded as I tried to explain what I was experiencing.The steering is massively changed (more on that later), the ride is firmer, more controlled, and it absorbs road rash with a solid "thump" and almost 0 harshness. And when bumps/dips/expansion joints/etc. are encountered, the car doesn't squirm or need slight steering corrections, it just goes solidly straight ahead. All the rear-end wiggle and necessary steering corrections are gone. Hard acceleration requires no steering corrections, creates no nose-rise, the car just shoots ahead. Braking has almost 0 nose-dive, it just stops. Acceleration out of a corner requires no steering corrections......it's just......weird, like a go-kart.Then there were other changes;Driving home I noticed the shifting felt a bit better, but I didn't know if that was just because the trans was completely warmed up. But in this morning's crisp 38 degree weather, I started the car, waited 30 seconds or so, and put it into gear to head to work. ALL of the nibbling and sometimes crunching going into 2nd and 3rd when cold are gone. Completely gone. This is nothing I expected, and very surprising. I won't tell others to expect the same thing, but I'm guessing the subframe alignment kit got something lined-up better and caused the shifting improvement.The there's the steering.This was what I noticed first, as the Indy 500 tires do ruin the steering feel a bit. And suddenly the steering was much crisper. Then I checked my PSIs, and found Peter had increased the tire pressures by about 4 PSI all around. I hand't added air since it got cold, so they needed some. This really improved the steering feel, but also pressed home one interesting point;The car now handles road-rash much better, even though the tires have 4psi more in them. That's a real testament to the quality of the suspension upgrades. Better ride, better body motion control, 0 rear-end wiggle, better shifting, all at the same time. The goal of budget-baller Aston/911/awesome car has been achieved.Anyways, I would recommend doing suspension upgrades first to any Mustang owner. My cost with labor was about $1900.00, and it's worth every penny. Peter and the folks at RPM Autohause were fantastic, and they're highly recommended.

    Well, my ears have ascended. I don't think there is a better pair of cans anywhere near this price point. I said that about my 6xx's when I got them (black headphones on the left) which at the 200 dollar mark are beyond amazing. But these Fostex... Fuck me. At fist it was almost like they had TO much bass even though I am a bass enthusiast. After a couple hours of listening to some red hots, imagine dragons and then my usual top 40 type stuff, man, they are so warm and alive its insane. The bass is tight and punchy AF, but not in a crappy beats sort of way. Its extremely tight and clear, while really packing a punch for headphones. Everything is incredibly clear and they sound pretty open for being closed backs. I think it would be hard to find an objectively better pair of headphones for under 800-1000. At this point I think you start to trade things for other things. To that point, my buddy has a pair of these, hd600, hd650, hd700, and hd800 S's with some really nice amps and dacs, and while the 800 S's are beyond amazing, I honestly don't think I like them as much as these. They are a nicer sound stage and more clear and crisp, but along with that comes harshness especially up top. These are much warmer and happier, while still retaining amazing clarity and highs. Point is, if your in the market for 300-800 dollar headphones, don't think twice, this is what you want. I am very impressed. FX1_6322 by David, on Flickr

    I don’t remember if I posted this already. But Stage 2 trans is here, MGW replaces the top section of the shifter as a “just in case” since I already sent it to them and their service is just that good... Going to replace the pilot bearing as a just in case as well, so I have new pressure plate bolts on the way, along with new bell housing bolts, starter motor bolts, clutch alignment tool as I have never done a clutch job myself, and I have decided on BG Synchroshift II I think. I know Calimer has his cocktail he recommends, but that seems incredibly random to me. Let’s hope all goes well, install is planned for Dec 19! I have a trip to San Diego the next weekend so if it does go well, that’s my break in drive I suppose! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Uh, do headphones count as computer hardware? I got a pair of Sennheiser HD6xx's on massdrop last year for 199 (seriously this deal still exists, and they are absolutely phenomenal with good amp and dac to drive them, easily the best thing's under 400 bucks) but just ordered a new pair of cans. Fostex TR-X00's are on their way! These bad boys are 415 bucks, which is why the 6XX's are not the best headphone under 600 bucks anymore I guess... Pretty stoked for next Thursday when the Fostex show up!!!!

    Just finished Metro Last Light Redux. Fuck, that shit was a bit crazy lol. 9 hours over a few weekends, but damn. That was a great game, and the end was pretty creepy. Fun stuff, forgot how much fun single player games can be. Also, got a little funko pop that goes perfectly with the rig!

    It actually works really good, you tighten is tight as you want for the track and then slide the device off for daily driving with your factory belt.

    My advice would be to stop worrying so much (easy to say!). Get the cable fixed and move on. Ive had mine for nearly seven years, just turned 52000mi, and it has been 100% trouble-free. Its garaged at night and I don't abuse it, but it's my DD and I don't baby it; the tach turned red on me last week quite by surprise 😎
