Wheels and dual exhaust are a must. Still have to get mine. I want to go either dual flow master 40s or 44s

They have a really good rep around here. Plus offer free tunes for life with your handheld tuner.

He can't go Mach 1 grille delete. It's not a new edge. Go to Americanmuscle or latemodelrestoration. I personally like American muscle the best but LRS has more restoration options. Go for some nice 17" bullits for your first mod. I think it would make that mustang stand out much better

It also looks like you need a new pony on your grille

VHT nightshade can be bought at a auto parts store like autozone. It is black paint that let's light through, looks sweet in tail lights. I'd say black rims with maybe chrome lip or something like that.

You can have a cat back from a 94-98 gt on your car the shop will just modify your mid pipe to fit it. That is the most common option for us sixers

I personably think they all look good. I'm not a chrome guy and I personally only think chrome wheels look good on black cars. I would go black in you case for rims. Black saleens or bullits look great. It's really what you prefer. That was my first mod on my mustang. The stock rims are too small and ugly for my taste. Look on Craigslist, that's where I bought my rims

so is it like the spray on light tint? and can you get black with a chrome lip cause that would look really good considering its a dark colored car. and ok thats what i might do so than itll be cheaper.

what size do you think? 17x10 on 245/45/17 tires?

Yes but remember than the bigger the rim the heavier it is going to be. Heavier = slower car. For motor work I would check out supersixmotorsports.com

I would do either do 17x9 front and back or 17x9 front and 17x10.5 on the back. Just remember if you run the staggered setup even tho it looks awesome you won't be able to rotate your tires

Why would you want an intake spacer?
