👍 Nice... I mean not really a version of my build but it is your build and I like it! In my head Its using the terms loosely a touring/cannonball build while my 2.3 fox is my A/X build and my courier is a "drag" build.. have you fired that thing up yet? I'd like to hear that 2.5 cam!!!

got the pimpx installed and auto tuned for about 30 minutes of driving and truck has never been so smooth.... Still need to work on the cold start and hot restarts and it will be perfect!! Sounds totally different without massair In intake as well. Had to moved pin 32 to pin 52 for dual plug and take 5°timing out the whole table and add a pin for efan but other then that was direct bolt on and go!!!

My mustang has been getting a lot of attention lately as I plan to Daily that when the ranger gets motor swap. I have done a few things on the build aside from buying parts.
Old set of Monroe load carrier coil over rear struts

Some 2" rear spacers to fill the wheel well,

Here's how she handles the 2,700lb pop up I pull occasionally, we have hundreds of campsites in a 60mile radius and I'll use this before I do my f350 460fi (8mpg)

Haven't taken it on road with camper but before my hitch was 8-10" off the ground with camper ands is now 14-16"!!! And it handles well without the camper!

So I did some dumb stuff on the daily... I just really wanted to lower the front but if I cut anymore of the factory spring the already harsh ride would worsen. After a few attempts with the random junk I have laying around I have done it!!!

I have triple front springs 🤣 .... I had originally tried just the red spring but tire was touching fender liner..
IMG_20220611_121226036.jpg
looking around for a spacer or anything else I can I saw my pile of scrap... Red springs is 02civic si skunk2 front lowering spring, the black spring is a 04 Toyota matrix rear factory spring. And it fit...and it drives smooth and handles aggressively!! Think the dual spring rate magic worked!

That is the height she sits right now!!
Excuse the drippy paint I didn't do that but will eventually correct it!
