So, on July 4th, I celebrated being an American by joining a special brotherhood that millions of other American are a part of...
I'M IN DEBT!!!
But that's because I joined an even better club...
I'M NOW A MUSTANG OWNER!!!
Driving around in my Focus with some time to kill, I saw it in front of my local dealer:
2007 V6 Pony Package, black with white stripes, black leather interior, 5 speed manual.
So, now that I finally own a Mustang, it's time to start thinking what I want to do down the road. I don't plan on totally making this thing crazy, but there's a couple things I want to do with it, and was looking for some suggestions.
Exhaust: Sound pretty good so far (I was just driving a Focus), but I want better. I used to have a 94 v6 Camaro that had a custom catback exhaust kit. It was loud, and it rumbled nice, but was raspy as heck above 3K rpm. I've heard it said that the 4.0L V6 doesn't really need the dual exhaust setup, and I don't think I want to spend the money on having to modify the rear bumper to accommodate that or on the dual kit itself, so I'm thinking I'm just going to get an axleback exhaust kit. Question is, what's good out there?
I'd like to get the volume up, and get it sounding a bit more aggressive to sound a little closer to a V8. However, I'd like to avoid excessive rasp if I can. I'm not planning on doing a whole lot of performance mods, but in case I start doing some, something that might help out down the road in that aspect might be good too. Looking to spend less than $300, and less than $200 if I can.
Taillights: The Sequential tail lights they got at AmericanMuscle.com looks pretty sweet, and I'm probably going to get those. However, if there are better ones out there, or same quality and cheaper that you know of, I'm all ears!
Intake: Low on my priorities since I just got the car and am not looking to focus on performance, but I'm curious as to what is recommended out there. Something that would perhaps help out with the sounds of the car, and go well with the exhaust setup. Same cost target as the exhaust.
That's all for now. Thanks in advance!
