    First time oil change on my replacement 5.2L engine. From what I can tell, it hasn't burned any oil in 1000 miles. Some oil in the passenger separator, but the drivers side is always dry.

    The surprise, which I should have thought to look before the oil change, was that they left the new cartridge oil filter assembly on the new engine. I had heard others say Ford swapped over the old spin-on assembly back when replacing engines on early cars. I don't mind the new style filter and it allowed me to see that there was no assembly trash in the oil. It sure seems like the car wants an extra half-quart, maybe the different filter assembly.

    I'm hoping to get my (spare) hood painted in a week or two.

    I met up with @byronj for my annual visitation rights with his GT350. It looks better than new!

    HAHA, @VoodooBoss, always good to see you. Your old workhorse is in a good place. We will see you soon.

    Here are some pics after a 120 mile trip in the fog. right after I picked her up from Imperial works in Sacramento

    As a follow up to this, the Momo supercup xl was too wide at the shoulder wings to clear the door panel, so I returned it and went for a street oriented Recaro Expert M in black leather and artista cloth. I did mount it with the BK adapter and Recaro slider, but didn’t use the BK mounts. For tall people, this gained me about 4" of extra headroom. Being 6'6", this has allowed me to finally fit well in a car. Looking through the middle of the windshield instead or the top, the rear view mirror isn't blocking 27% of my view to the right, and I don't have to hunch over at traffic lights. It's a revelation.

    My wife bought me an AIM Solo 2 and schroth quick fit pros for both sides for Christmas. I'm skipping the harness bar and will pick up a head and neck device also and a fresh Bell helmet.

    Though bought my dream car:

    Now having to learn all about these things, but after a week I'm grinning ear to ear every time I press "start"

    Nice trade up.
    ahhhh....Wish I had know you were trading in...I would have purchased the hood vents and splitter and give you the same color stock vents if you didn't still have them.

    Bought a spare hood for the SAI Tree Fitty. A hundred and fifty bucks plus shipping. I like spare parts. :cool:

    I had a bunch of stuff I wish I had removed in retrospect:

    Springs (I had stockers)
    The splitter
    The USB port for car play
    The ccg grilles
    Wheel spacers
    The gt350 exhaust system
    Those hood vents
    A Mishimoto intake tube and k&n filter

    The timing of the deal was an issue as there was another party trying to get a deal done on the car

    Spartan has built two race cars in the time it's taken me to get my spare hood painted.

    But it's done and I installed it this morning! Decided against anything matte, just same as stock and gloss clear the GT4 vent.

    Weather is cold and rainy so I can't take better pictures.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I let three 18-year old car enthusiasts drive it yesterday, and created three new fans of the 350R, keeping the future market value alive!!
