I didn't want to clog up Easy's thread anymore with my threadjack (sorry man) So i decided to start my own - as stated in Easy's thread, i had my first dyno run on a mustang dyno the other day - at first i was expecting to hit something like ~120whp but got surprised with 153whp in 3rd gear. Which was kinda comforting after seeing what some of the other MT's ran
Some Factors in play
Temp: 63 Degrees F
Mileage: 24,500 - 1500 since last oil change
Oil: Mobil 1 Full Syn
Start Speed: 40
Top Speed: 85
Unfortunately their graph mechine was broken so i couldn't get a graph - but i did snag this
I plan on switching to Royal Purple Motor Oil - i'm still debating on sticking with 10w-30 - i'd like some more opinions on this before going with it - and Royal Purple Tranny fluid - then getting new ngk spark plugs and mazsports coils - lastly i hope to get a new exhaust (possibly sp2) and then jump back on the dyno n' see where i'm at...i'm crossing my fingers for MAYBE 5whp...i'd really like some input here for my next step folks

A custom SRI - i also removed that air flow hose behind the front bumper that opens and closes at low rpms - also removed the restrictive plate to give my 8 more air to flow - i had to reset my ecu n' all and my idle is a lil' shaky at times but still good -
aside from that, i've just been very meticulous (sp) about taking care of my baby - nothing but 91 and regular oil changes (except this one time because i was stooopid ) and easy driving during the week except for the weekend when i really open her up
my next steps are posted - what do you guys think? decent? or should i go a different route?
