If your getting the other options then try doing it on a post that hasn't been commented on yet.I think once other people post so much after your comment then that option goes away.

That sounds right, no need to go bigger than 70mm anyway.

Did you ask which TB they recommend for your set up or that intake? If not I'd call back and ask.

Yes they said a 70mm is what I should run. No reason to run bigger because the opening doesn't go bigger and shouldn't go smaller because I'd be chocking it down.

I have a bbk 75mm tb and my Systemax 2 almost matched right up to it. I just had to go around it for a minute with a sand cartridge roll to make it match perfect. So I am guessing that they make it just bigger than 70mm and call it 70. Probably to accommodate diff tb manufacturers. It seemed closer to 75mm to me than 70mm but you can't argue with the manufacturer lol. A 70mm will work fine with it.

I may have an older version of the systemax so who knows. +1 on not choking it down.

Be careful and try to get brand name stuff or you can get burned. Like the control arms. I know Granatelli has them on eBay for cheap and they are known in the mustang aftermarket for example.

Be careful with the cheaper shifters also. I have heard of them coming apart while driving which could be dangerous.

Yes MAC makes good stuff I have their headers on my car now and they look sound and fit good. They make all kinds of mustang parts. What are you looking to get?

Is it a price thing or are you just looking for some good parts? There are better ones out there but MAC makes good stuff. You wouldn't be wasting your money. Make sure the caster camber plates have the metal spherical bearing and not the rubber bushing that the strut rod mounts to. Maximum Motorsports makes some of the best mustang suspension parts on the market but they probably cost more than MAC. Just something to look in to.

Thanks see all this is new to me my old car didn't have Cc plates and control arms and quad shocks and all that mess. Just looking quality parts at good prices that's all. I personally don't believe you have to spend money on the most expensive parts to get quality

Maximum motorsports is a bit higher prices than Mac but they are also very proven and also highly recommended by a lot of people. Also their price still isn't as high as most big name brands so it's that much better of a deal.

If you get some time go read some reviews on both brands, hopefully the 10-20 more you spend on something of better quality will save you more in the long run.

+1 on not having to buy twice. It is almost always better to spend just a little more and get quality parts. As long as you get a name brand part most of the time you will be fine. It also depends on what your plans are with the car as to how serious of parts you new to buy.
