After listening to the auto blip video again , I went to your build thread. That is a great sounding Coyote, the mods and dyno numbers certainly explain why it sounds so good.
Thanks! I got extremely lucky with the upgrades that were already done prior to me purchasing and the lack of it being driven hard. I kinda feel bad for the last owner when I drove off. That's how much I knew he took care of her.

I’m guessing the RH has LED in that pic
Yes , passenger side. It's a pain to install through the wheel well so wanted to get them done while I still had a little light. I had similar bulbs on my Jeep and really liked. The "yellow" fogs make a big difference expecially with heavy snow.

I put LED bulbs in mine. The left low beam on mine must not be in correct as it points high to the right. And yes it is a pain to install with tire still on lol

I had a 1989 Escort GT (The Escort From Heck) that I used as a TSD rally car (among other things), and did a few night rallies with. My navigator at the time called the Hella 4000 I put on it "The Sun" because it was so bright - I could light up a road sign over 1/2 mile away.

It's probably not seated the whole way. Take a look through the front and make sure that the LEDs are facing 9 and 3 and "fin" is pointing straight out. It may have gone in a little funky. My passenger side low was off by maybe 7 degrees at full lock and had to correct. They are tight enough that a slight rotation isn't going to hurt anything.

To be honest, the test drive back in 10/2020 was awkward and maybe intimidating. I hadn't driven a manual in quite a few years, no RWD since in my teens and definitely nothing ever close to 500 HP. As soon as I got in the owner said " only certain people are able to drive this car. ". All I could think was "Awe sh*t, I just drove 4 hours . Did I make a mistake". (Knowing now he was talking more about shifting - it was all related to the stock shifter being a piece of crap). Test drive went fine and figured out the weird shifter. After finalizing the purchase the second drive was the reality burst of what I really had. Got out on a 4 lane and gave her ( and me) a little "test" . 2 bright red lights like two big hearts lit up the dashboard going though 2 and 3rd and fell in love. Now, I could be having the worst day, jump in the Stang and life is better.
