This is likely to be a wrap for Project: Dream Garage series of posts for a while. I will definitely make more minor and major upgrades to my garage such as flooring and various tools. Until then be on the lookout for more car and welding related projects!
The first phase of my garage build is over. The guys from Tool Time Home Improvement got done with the sheetrock, lighting, AC, etc… Everything came out pretty great with just some minor touch up left. Now I’m working on all the big ticket items and final touches including flooring, 2-post lift, tool chests, cabinets,
Ever since I bought the house in Bridgeland I’ve wanted to remodel my garage. I didn’t like the back storage rooms the prior owner put in, they took away a lot from the floor space. I also hated the paint job, lighting and generally poor way in which the space was finished.
Up to mile 5,424 I changed the oil on the Mustang to a new grade and brand. I submitted used oil to two different labs and got results. Then I tested samples of Swisstrax and RaceDeck against physical and chemical torture. I also took a trip to New York to see my family!
Having finished the install I was ready to hit the rollers for a ProCharged Mustang dyno morning. I was hoping to make over 600whp from the stage 2 kit. Some guys were getting over 650whp, and I ended up running a bit of race fuel. First I had to test the car though.
I decided it was time to make some serious changes. To start off we need to get some boost. This holiday weekend I’m going to be adding 10PSI during my stage 2 mustang procharger install! It’s all about maximum performance and handling from here on out.
The Performance Pack didn’t get a spoiler, Ford deletes it from the car if you order this package. Why do they do this? I’ve never heard a concrete answer, but people’s guesses range from wind tunnel testing to conspiracy theories. Personally, I think Ford figured a performance package buyer would possibly want a blank slate.
I waited for MMD’s V-Series Grilles to come out. They were the best looking mustang grilles out of all the models on the market at the time. I was very excited about the install, but dreading taking off the front fascia.
