Smelly Fuel Hose, New Tires & Parking Lines

Having finished installing the Fore Innovations Fuel System I found that I had a really strong gasoline smell from the Eaton Startlite hose that I was recommended. I ended up replacing those for a very similar hose, which no longer smelled. I also show you some new wheels, sticky tires and we paint some parking lines for my lift!

New tires and wheels!

Installing Fore Innovations Fuel System 2016 Mustang GT

In my quest for performance I’ve had to deal with the limited fueling capacity of the stock 2016 Mustang GT return-less fuel system. This meant I was running the JMS BAP (Boost-A-Pump) voltage booster to get more out of what Ford gave us. Unfortunately I do not trust this kind of setup, there is some precedent for catastrophic failures, not to mention performance limitations for the future. I decided it was time to purchase and install a traditional return style fuel system and picked Fore Innovations for their reputation and how high quality all the components appeared.

Corsa Headers for S550 GT Mustang Installed

It’s always been the plan to get long tube stainless steel headers for my S550 Ford Mustang. There are many different choices for this platform, but Corsa headers really jumped out at me when I was shopping. It’s no surprise, because Corsa Performance has traditionally made terrific exhaust cat-back systems, some of the best ever. I have had them on several vehicles including my Mustang which is equipped with the Corsa Xtreme 3″ Cat-Back. This is a new product line for Corsa and it’s exciting to see them expand into headers.

ProCharger Bypass Valve Sound

I shot a quick video of what the bypass valve sounds like on my 2016 Mustang GT. This puppy is supercharged with the ProCharger Stage 2 kit. This audio was a blend of a mic on the intake and a mic inside the car. This represents a lot of what it sounds like revving on the ground at a light.

Mustang Spoiler MMD V-Series for S550s

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.
