you forgot CAI, throttlebody spacer, and aftermarket wires!:bstd: And I'm guessing since the upper intake has been painted that there's been some porting done to the upper and lower intakes????

was actually gonna be my next question about whether she was A9L or A9P(?). Has she had a chip burned for it?

if you know where your ECU is located you will be able to tell if she's got a chip. The chip will be sticking out of the backside(opposite of where wiring harness plugs into) of the ECU. Rough idle is usually caused by bad IAC or with the new larger injectors your injector timing could be off.

it'll be under one of the kick panels on the stangs I think. Not too sure, on my truck it's located under the parking brake assembly on the drivers side

:lol: If it's got a chip you'll be able to see it sticking out of the back of it! Rough idle is usually IAC though and that's an easy check and fix! Why are ther 2 ECU's there???
