Car was purchased 19OCT2011

On 1JAN2012 on my way back from vacation my motor suffered a catastrophic failure of the #2 and #4 cylinder piston rings. At the time the motor had 6000 miles on it and was Protuned stage 2 making ~300whp 325wtq before WCF on a mustang dyno. Spec Ops Motorsports in Hope Mills, NC spent the next few months guiding me in the right direction and rebuilding my motor.

The motor rebuild consisted of
Honed Block
Check Tolerances
CP 99.5mm 9.0:1 Pistons
Element Tuning Rods
ACL Race Main & Rod Bearings
Gates Racing Timing Belt Kit
Master Gasket Kit
Deatschwerks DW65c Fuel Pump
Deatschwerks 850cc Fuel Injectors

Post-rebuild the car was retuned and currently makes 340whp/350wtq on 93 octane fuel.

Currently I'm working on finalizing the entire build and getting everything purchased. Hopefully by the end of this year all parts will be paid for and on their way into the car.
