    My tuner had a dyno day/open house yesterday, and a buddy of mine showed up and brought his Cannon t2i camera (along with his Sti subaru, ha!) and shot some pretty sweet pics. These are just a small portion of the pics he took, but they all turned out very well. There were a bunch of badass cars that showed up. Mustangs of all generations, LS powered anything and everything, Cadillacs, bikes, etc, a really good turn out.. AND to top it off, long story short I found several valve seals leaking on my car, so I fixed those and my car put down 495 rwhp (Increased from 478 a month ago).. and this was on a 95 degree day versus 75 degrees a month ago, so that was icing on the cake for me.
    Anyway, onto the pics. I'll start with some of the other cars, then whore it up with mine.

    Yes, sort of like seeing 'celebrities' in real life. ha. Unfortunately, most of the guys I've met that own the 'youtube famous' high hp cars have a certain arrogance to them that I just can't look past. Everyone else was really cool, I bs'd with just about all the mustang guys there, as well as plenty of other types of cars owners.

    Saturday I dyno'd at 495 rwhp. Since it was just like a 'power shootout', neither rpm nor related torque were recorded (which I was kind of disappointed about).. I stop by his shop about once a week, so maybe one of these evenings when the temp is lower and there is less humidity, I can throw my car up on the dyno and see some low 500 hp numbers... :headbang:

    He's had his for several years now, slowly making it faster and faster. I took a ride in it on saturday, and it is ridiculously fast. Definitely a weird feeling getting up to 120+ in a block or so in a car that big.
    He used to have a custom tag on it that said 'EATS50S' (Eats 5-ohs), and I saw him in a parking lot and started talking to him about it, and I've known him ever since. Ha

    Looks like an awesome turnout. Your car is looking great! The turbo-spool on the "fr8trn" T/A sounds amazing on youtube. Once I heard it, I was a fan ever since. Thanks for posting!

    Awesome lol. My dad has a 95, always wanted to make it fast LOL. They have balls stock, but with the right setup they're insane machines. Can't beat a really comfy luxury coupe, and a ton of power.
