Hell ya nice choice dude! I wish I had known more about cars and not have bought the mufflers from the shop for my car and just bought a cat back exhaust instead......... Im looking at a magnaflow catback kit for this summers project to replace the Flows.

Your fellas mustangs sound awesome with exhaust. Theres someone in my town with a white one like yours, and it sounds just SICK.  Grin

Ya they sound really good when you get some aftermarket exhaust, the prob is when ppl add mufflers and a x pipe it sounds badass but then dont do any other major mods to make it quicker it just sounds loud and slow.

I thought your car is pretty quick with everything you have done? I thought it would run at least a 13.5 or so on the 1/4 like Supras stang.

SO....... two months later I'M FINALLY POSTING it. Jeesh I'm surprised it took me so long,

Since then I've also installed a Edge evo programmer (woke this thing up BIG TIME) and also did whats called the Gotts intake mod (amazing what 3" ABS can do...) Basically opens the 2.5" inlet into a 3" one, slapped a drop in K and N in and now have a cheap but non-droning cold air.


Few wot pulls, rev at the start and a start up. Ignore the brake creak Cheesy

Still can't beleive it took me that long. Headphones help ya hear better, but other than that crank er up! No music to ruin that throaty 5.4 goodness Cheesy

It does have a great rumble to it.  And, yes, headphones make a big difference here.  Well done .  .  .

I considered the HIDs, but i find they're way to bright without the real housing to do with it. And those are far from cheap.

Go here

http://ddmtuning.com/products/102/

Even though it seems to good to be true for the prices that they are asking, all of my friends with HID's have have bought their kits from here. Just choose your bulb type/size by going to the sylvania website to choose the correct bulb size. then just order the type of bulbs with this kit and bam you have HID's!

Hope that helps
