    also..if you are still on the fence about meth kits, look into DEVILS OWN. Kit was a breeze to install and actually looks good!

    So you definitely doing meth? Eric G. didn't used to like it. Then he saw how well my car runs after he finished with it, haha.

    And as Modular2v said, Devil's Own is a good kit. I have an AIS kit that is nice as well. IIRC, they two kits have the exact same components (pump, tank, nozzles, etc.).

    I too like meth after seeing what it did for your ride. Big jump in performance at the track where it counts! BTW the stang is up and running, ready for its base tune!

    BTW VIDEO!!

    I have the Tokico HP blues, and honestly, I'm not a huge fan. They do the job, but are very stiff.

    On the dyno now, break-in tune, first pull 400rwhp / 469rwtq on 10lbs, 13 degrees of timing, and AR of 11.15 AFR at the top of the pull.

    Nice. Sounds like it's gonna make some nasty power. Still got a lot left in the boost, timing, and AFR.
