My new Intake!!!

By MustangGT58266

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

Check out the vids:

***under the hood: http://www.yo...v=6XfzLGby9u0 ***
***in action 40-90 MPH: http://www.yo...v=woAlu1P4NGw ***
***on the highway: http://www.yo...y5BQ&NR=1 ***

My new custom built Short Ram Air Intake I put together using Spectre Performance parts. 1) Black Coupler Part#8771, 2) 6" tube Chrome Part#8718, 3) P4 Red Cone Filter Part# 8132, 4) Red Breather filter Part#3992

Removed stock set up, cool thing is Koups have no Mass Air Flow sensor so im going to upgrade to 4" diameter tubing instead of the 3". assembled new set up and reset my ecu. set up works great! we get alotta rain here so short ram set up was more practical then cold air set up

Also check all the other vids of the Koup on my channel


Koup's first race :)

By MustangGT58266

yes i street race but im safe about it. closed roads, wide roads, no turns just straight drags, no rain, no traffic, just clean races for fun no money, no fighting, just good sportsmanship.

now a cool thing we do is not just a race n thats it but we use Vi Performance monitors to see 0-60, 1/4mile, and lap times and etc. before cars run we set them up in OBD ii calibrate em, run, and they work awesome.

well i havent raced yet with the new Koup til today and did my first one against a friends 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer ES Sport with a cold air intake and a catback exhaust. i have the same mods.

we are close in stats:
-2011 Kia Forte Koup EX
-2.0L 6 speed manual
-156HP (stock, power with mods unknown)
-144TQ (stock)
-2737 lbs curb weight

-2009 Mitsubishi Lancer ES Sport
-2.0L 5 speed manual
-152HP (stock, power unknow with mods)
-146TQ (stock)
-2922lbs curb weight

so close stats but i won twice. the initial race was from a dig about a 1/4 mile which i pulled him on the take off, pulled even more in 2nd and gained on him the entire run to win by about a car length. our second run was from 50mph to top speed 120mph where we are both limited. we were neck and neck to about 70 as i pulled on him and gained ground the entire run til we hit limiter. when i hit 120 i was a good 3 to 4 car lengths ahead.

the Vi Performance stats were takin on 1/4 mile run. the monitors werent our they were our friends but im def getting one they are cool!
My Times:
-6.84 0-60
-15.11 at 97.66

His Times
-7.31 0-60
-15.53 at 96.02
pretty close!

so i can definitely thank the win on shifting, less weight, and an extra gear. though he was in 5th when he hit 120 and i was in 5th as well but i have one more gear so i would win even without limiter.

2.0L i4 6 Speed manual

Scion :(

By MustangGT58266

totalled it about 2 months back still kinda miss it lol it was a great car. guy runs stop sign, sees me coming stops in the middle of my lane, no where to go left or right, icy roads, hit the brakes and slid into him at about 25mph. both of us were fine and walked away scratchless but between my front end being smushed a little and three of my airbags deploying the insurance said it was totalled. but they paid it off and i got about $1000 back because of my special add ons like new stereo and rims that got messed up. put that towards a new 2011 Kia Forte Koup EX 2.0L 6 speed manual, its a pretty awesome car so im slowly getting happier lol :)

Update on my situation

By MustangGT58266

Well for one in my final steps in joining the Air Force I was denied by the big guys because of my tattoo. So I'm switching branches and I will be joining the U.S. Army! My ASVAB score is high, my physical is completed, my tattoo was approved, just have to select my job and ill be all set! It makes no difference to me whether I join Air Force or Army, I've always liked both equally.

Number two! The Stang is gone :( :( :( I was in an accident. No NOT my fault, lady ran a red light and t-boned me at about 40mph. I'm ok, just got a little shook up. Luckily it was the passenger side not the driver side. She's ok as well. There's way too much damage to even consider fixing it. So the car is totaled and i have gotten a Scion tC off a friend :( j/k its a nice car!

hey everyone!

By MustangGT58266

well after careful consideration, no drive (and no money) to go back to school, and wanting to get out and do something with my life, i've joined the United States Air Force! i've wanted to since i was 10 so i'm finally doing it! i'll be leaving on Nov. 20th!

when i have a chance to get to a computer ill keep everyone updated!

oh and the Stang's production will be on hold for now lol
