Finally got the intake fixed on my car. This picture is right after we pulled the intake off. Really happy with how clean the inside of this motor is. So clean you could eat of it. Cam lobes have no wear on them at all. The worst part was scraping the old gasket off

Me isn't fully certain on all of that but one thing I'd bet $$$ on is that Ford would never reveal the exact reason publicly. Similar to when Boeing moved to, of all places, gasp, Chicago. Really, because Chicago is "more centrally located to our customers in both Europe and Asia"? Bull. On the flipside, at least Apple was honest IIRC last month when they said they were looking to buy facilities in the US due to instability with North Korea (I'd bet $$$ that Trumps comments about making other countries pay for us providing defense or else was reason #1).

Here's more companies coming back and I'd bet the list is much longer than this short story:

I doubt I said never happens. I helped a tech button up a repair on another grey fx4 before I went flat rate for a similar issue.

Yep. One of the reasons I bought on with residual factory warranty.

Is Logan still here or was he overthrown? I have noob Water/Meth Injection question he'd probably be better helping me with than a mustang forum.

I still really want to find a peak 500HP at the Engine. I don't want to go with the GT350 Intake Manifold because I don't want to give up my enormous amount of low end torque, and I don't want to go full open exhaust because I do plan on moving into a suburban neighborhood with houses 2ft apart.

On my naturally aspirated setup, is there any reason I shouldn't go with a good Water/Meth kit even if I only intend on running a conservative timing change to use it?

I think the only concerns with that type of system is running out and being tuned for it and not being able to find any for it. Like if you're out and about

And no, there's no reason you shouldn't.

I would probably order it with one of the bigger reservoirs, and run just water 90% of the time I'm driving the car, I wouldn't be opposed to carrying distilled water in my trunk Full time. I like the idea of being able to run a Water/Meth mix and a tune when I want the extra power. And that even on just water it may not make any power, but it does keep everything stable and clean.

Yep. I didn't look at the details of that kit, but it would be nice to have a light on center console or dash for when the tank gets low.
The cleaning is a great benefit
