I am here.. just been VERY busy... work has picked up 10x and I just moved the family to a new house in a different county (yay emissions!!).. I have been on travel A LOT lately..

No foul play, car still runs like a scolded dog.. even more now.. I had a few days where I could get some datalogging done to figure out what is going on.. the last track run of 12.1 was with the throttle sitting at 50% open the entire time.. that issue has been resolved now and it pulls much much harder now.. night and day difference for sure.. at LEAST a couple tenths picked up if not more.. I suspect more since there was additional tweaking done to the setup..

For now I am just biding my time.. too busy to get to the track.. and yes.. the car is always for sale if someone wants it.. I don't mind starting a new project. I am thinking more AutoX than straight line racing at this point.. soo I am looking at smaller RWD/AWD cars.. Focus RS seem interesting with the improvements that XDI is making on the fueling... who knows...

Without a clear path on how to get around the drive train issues I am not interested in dumping much more money into the car. When I recover from the move, my next thought if I still have the car is taking back down to National Speed Inc to have them tear into the drive train to figure out a path forward... who knows...

Hope everyone is still doing well!

Updating... since it has been some time....

Private track event where I ran several back to back 11.9ís! Full weight, stock tires, and wheels. At the time of these runs I also had the AIRAID intake.

Big shout out to @shaundizzle for inviting me!

Quick video compilation!

Talking with Matt Robinson at Gearhead, found out he had an EPP Dual Feed Intake with no recirculation bungs for BOVs, bung for PCV, and crinkle black!!!! Never opened!! So naturally I made an offer to relieve him of such an unused burden....

Makes a huge difference when coupled with the GH turbos.. it effortlessly builds boost and just runs much smoother. Itís not fighting itself for air. I can see how this is taking up to .2 off peoples ETs...

Install was a PIA but not hateful...

Some quick snaps... here is the front turbine after 7K miles of use.. oil is from the PCV system. Not sure what is going on with the UPR CC.. however was told a small amount is normal.

So my next steps at this point is waiting to see what can be done with the transmission from a big cost perspective...

In the short term, I think I have maxed out the performance if these P-Zeroís...  looking into getting some lightweight 18ís that compliment the car with wider taller tires... and I want white lettering! Ha!

Better tires with lighter wheels and the new intake should help pull a few tenths off my ET if not more.

Very pleased with my goal of keeping the car reliable and stock looking while running quick times for these cars. Take the kids to the park, go grocery shopping, and then go to the track and tick off 11ís all in the same day :-)

Now to look into tire/wheel combos...

Glad you cracked the 11's, for sure I expected you of all people to have done it some time ago :D :D  Let's hope the trans upgrade price tag is reasonable.  Then you might want to look into HD axles as well.  No idea how the wheel bearings will hold up, at least you have SKF and Timken alternatives to try.  Maybe even a carbon fiber driveshaft.  Add power, reduce loss.

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

Yea, just slow to the game, literally! Ha!  Itís funny to me how well out trans and motor are matched up. They both hit about max power at the same time. Matt seems to think that I can get away with a lot more power on the stock trans as long as he can control the torque as thatís what kills drive trains...

We will see.... I like your additional ideas too! I used a timken wheel bearing on my 2010. No issues what so ever. Good products.
