A pleasant update:

On TSP Stg1 on my normal drive I'm back up to 37/38 mpg:) Just after removing the Cobra it went up to 34/35 and then when I put the PRL Stage 1 setup into my modified stock airbox it went back up to the current 37/38! I miss the SOUND! Both the intake and the Catless DP/FP. I still have the 12" glasspack in but when I remove it I'm removing the resonator as well so I can get a few pop's from time to time.

I am thinking I'm going to do one of the KTuner base tunes and lean it out a bit under normal driving to see what I can do for gas mileage would love to see over 40 daily!

Yeah, I just said that lol! Loving the Konig's so much more than I expected to as well! Wife actually said those are her favorites after she got over the shock of me getting my 4th set of wheels for the car in under a year! These are it!

Second weekend in January going to get the Stang so stoked for that! Sold the DP/FP already, but just listed the Cobra, Hasport, and other items for sale on the forum here - well edited my original for sale post and just bumped it instead of making a new post!

Did you ever fitted the 18x9 et35 Wheels?
I saw a staggered setup but i'm not sure if 18 x 9 et35 would poke or sit flush.

Nope they will fit though those wheels were backorder and they still are:/. The Konigs have grown on me big time! They are 18x9 ET38 The 18x9.5 ET35 will fit as well, the 18x9.5 ET38 will rub a bit if lowered.

Been a while for an update, just been driving the car and honestly had only washed it once since December until today. Plan was wash, clay bar, compound and wax. Ended up washing it, then fixed a noise I had from the extra piping I have had since i took the Cobra off and put the stock modified airbox back on. That turned into trying the removing the front foglight covers without removing bumper to put the yellow laminx on, finished that and decided to see where it was taking in air from, my previous cuts in the garnish were way off so mounted the intake and cut better holes.

Then tore into the exhaust as one of the down-pipe bolts didn't seal properly when put the stock down-pipe and front-pipe back in Then said fuck it and dropped the stock cat-back as still had the extra glasspack/muffler in front of the resonator. Then said fuck it and took off resonator and the extra muffler as wanted to try my new Oxy-Acetelyn torch setup out. It didn't work right but cut it all off and welded it all back together with my little shit flux welder.

Anyway, spent alot of much needed hours on the car today:)

So - Pictures as most probably didn't read all of that:)

Oh made the stock tip stick out about an inch further as well, and used high temp paint on the whole length as you can see in the later pics. May do the clay bar, compound and wax tomorrow or may just do a quick wax on it.

I did get new Tags if anyone noticed - got my 100% VA disability and am no longer commuting to Orlando, I accepted a position for Department of State back in Jan, left my job on Feb 8th and the damn DoS still hasn't given me a start date so have been doing a shit ton of stuff around the house and spending time with the kids.

I could do this retirement thing - but goal is 10 more years of work while climbing the ladder so can retire early and the Disability will help that. Pictures are sporadic - took more but using a burner phone till I start the new job and it takes crap pics. Took ALOT to get the exhaust just right, but I do have some time right now:)

Pleasantly surprised, did quite a bit of driving since actually mounting the intake for the stock modded airbox and cutting the holes in front of it. Temp is consistently 6 degree's above ambient, that's better than I was getting with my Cobra!!!!!

Had a buddies wife pass away last week, she was only 37, and I introduced them so making a long drive this coming up weekend and will report back once I get there on MPG, and power, but I can say my STFT's are off a bit with the TSP Stage 1, it was spot on prior to this. I'm ok with it as when I get in throttle it goes to zero. For the drive I'm considering throwing in a base tune I modified a long time ago for MPG, may shoot for 40+ mpg on the trip, undecided still at this point. Washed, change my wifes Jeep to the Hardtop, and waxed the whole damn thing. Plan is to re-wash mine and wax it one evening before I leave, have tattoo time scheduled for Saturday so will leave Sunday morning Early as the service is on Monday. Then turn around and come back probably all day Tuesday.

Road trip was long but a success, been back a few days, needed to rotate tires so pulled off and saw cupping on the rears - when I put the camber arms in the back I didn't get alignment just guessed and measured from outside, it's very minimal but was hearing the noise...

Went ahead and cleaned inside the barrels on the wheels and then sealed inside and outside with the Poly wax I use, found the damn curb mark from driving through standing water on my wheel as well, have to sand down and paint it then seal it soon but not just yet, it's not bad at ALL thankfully, but really really makes me hate the small stretched tires, I think when the time comes will go with 255's and protect those lips;-)

Anyway, what you all like - pictures, tattoo was last Saturday, did all of the underarm all the time around 5 hours of work, finally healed and only a few scabs left at this point, one more session then done with color, other arm will be my military service and a little further down than this one, it will all be black and grey, except for a tribute on the inside of my bicep on the right arm.

Included the Notch-back as I lowered the front coil-overs a bit and found out why my dad had them so high, with this K-member it pushed the wheels forward so going back to the big and little's;-) Track time as soon as I start my damn new job I accepted on Jan 11th, damn Department of State takes forever....

Oh was showing the MPG on the 105 run - was the third guy in a group of 4, ran that speed for around 90 miles still getting 33.5 on that tank;-)

The KTuner and speedometer are to show the temp differences - averaging around 4-6 above Ambient when driving:):):)

Placeholder for a long update tonight, but the gyst of it is as follows:

Trading my wheels for Stock wheels plus cash, will be removing the Eibach Pro-kit and selling, sold the KTuner last night, and will just put the miles on it in stock form with the Resonator delete in place, and stock or Civic Sport wheels for a while. Just using the money to mod the Stang lol.

Baseline passes on the Stang were interesting - Breaking up bad in 2nd and 3rd gear but STILL ran 12.8's lol.

Since then have done quite a bit to it and that was with pump gas, 3 year old Leaded race fuel and water in the tank on the original plugs, not to mention all th exhaust stuff I have done to it. Anyway - Car feels so damn slow without a tune now:(

Wow been a minute since I updated - but there will be a bit more content coming soon. Sold the K-Tuner a while back - don't miss it as much as I thought I would, and most of my money and spare time has went to classes and the Mustang. Have a good 1200 worth of parts and updates to put on the Stang and just need some rear axles to handle the power for the hard launches, and rear disk brakes to tear it all apart and fix the issues to make it safer at the track and probably drop a good 1 to 1.5 in the 1/4, no huge hurries other than I want to go though...

Car has been getting used more for my super short commute and as such I fought off the urge hard to buy a truck by buying a roof rack. I'll throw some pic's on - it looked GOOD but fit like shit so got return approval and kept searching. I gave up and ordered a new $400 Rhino Rack setup. Then Sunday night around 1 am a Rhino Rack 2500 with 49" crossbars popped up on Facebook Marketplace for $25 I paid immediately and picked it up last night:) I was able to cancel the $400 order for the same kit and just ordered the Fit kit which was 75 with a discount code I had:) So for 100 got a Rhino Rack setup just waiting on the fit kit to arrive should be here by next monday at the latest:)

Also had ordered a surf rack pad setup, this fucker came with DaKine's so sending the FCS rack pads back lol. Talk about a score:)

I have a exhaust hanger issue I have to pull the car in to resolve, then will be doing the transmission fluid change soon as well, and will pay for an alignment as well as the rear tires are cupping a bit as when I put the adjustable arms in the back I just eyeballed it, thankfully driving the car a normal amount of miles these days only put around 2k miles on it since April 1st, I was doing that in a week some weeks before:)

Also - had an offer of 300 bucks and a set of 19" Black and Silver Accord Sport rims from a 18 model, only reason I'm hesitant to make the swap is they have 235/35 tires on them and the weight. I love the oem plus look but love my lightweight wheels, however this car is my daily only now, so the weight won't make a huge difference as it won't be going back to the track anytime soon. What are your thoughts on that swap?

I really like the Konig Ultraform and think they look great on your car. I would keep them if I were you. That being said, I'm actually thinking about buying a set of those so if you decided you wanted stock si wheels I would probably trade you.
