New guy from Tennessee, currently deployed to Iraq

I am a Clarksville TN native, but live in Savannah, TN with my wife, Emily. I am currently deployed to Iraq until August, but I really, REALLY cannot wait to get back home, and back to my Mustang.

The Owner: Kevin Miracle (some of you may know me from other Mustang specific forums, by the user name Miracle, which is my last name), US Army Cavalry Scout, originally from Clarksville, Tennessee, currently deployed to Iraq in support of OIF. Will be coming home in about 2 months

I am one HELL of a car NUT. Anything and all aspects about cars... I LOVE. It runs in my blood, it guides my life, and alot of my money and free time go into it. My current residence is in Savannah, TN with my wife of a year and a half, Emily.

I know mine can't even hold a candle to a couple cars that are on this forum, from what I have seen... but she's mine, I love her, and she will be in my family for a WHILE.

The Ride: A Satin Silver 2005 Ford Mustang GT Coupe, 5 speed, with alot of small bolt-ons. The one thing I am proud of most with this car, other than the fact that it's my first REAL performance car... is that everything from being able to soon install the Kenne Bell, cleaning the windows, detailing, oil changes, suspension work, and EVERYTHING else was done by me. And that is something I take pride in.

The Goods:

-Kenne Bell 2.6 liter Twin Screw supercharger, intercooled, stage 2, with Kenne Bell Boost-A-Pump. has yet to be installed... will be installed by me when I return from Iraq.

-AEM Brute Force Intake (will be coming off and going up for sale soon
-DIY CMCV delete, coming off the car and going up for sale as well.
-Spec Stage 2 Clutch and Billet Steel Flywheel (Not installed yet)
-Tokico DSpec Shocks, fully adjustable, front and rear. (Not installed yet)
-Maximum Motorsports Caster/Camber plates
-Steeda Ultra-Lite Springs
-Hurst Line Lock
-BMR Tubular Radiator support
-BMR K-Member, new in box, not yet installed.
-Steeda Lower and Upper rear control arms, non-adjustable.
-Diablosport MAFia (Will be coming off when the supercharger goes on)
-Hurst short throw Billet Plus shifter with Hurst white ball, or Hurst Pistol grip knob.
-Bassani Modular X Pipe with the high flow cats installed. Stock headers.
-Magnaflow Magnapack catback 2.5" mandrel bent.
-SCT XCal2 with my own tunes.
-30% window tint, also done by me

Other small goodies:

-DIY Black powdercoated valve covers
-Moroso coolant and power steering tanks.
-Moroso oil catch can
-Moroso Power Steering Tank
-Speed of Sound A-Pillar dual gauge pod
-Steeda Belt Tensioner
-Stewart Warner boost and Fuel Pressure gauges.

I think that is everything. Most of that stuff isn't even on the car yet... lol.

But enough babbling... here are some pics. Enjoy.


And it begins... this is the first pic of my car... the NIGHT I picked her up, before even signing the paperwork:




A few good friends and myself lined up in Colorado:




















The goodies (some of the ones not installed yet anyways):

Spec Stage 2+ and Steel Flywheel:



Speed of Sound 2 gauge A-Pillar pod:



CDC Rear decklid blackout:



Magnaflow Magnapack exhaust:



Tokico D Spec adjustable shocks:




Spec 2+ and Billet Steel flywheel:



Moroso Coolant tank:



Moroso Oil catch:



The Steeda Tensioner:





Gauges and sandwich adapter:







The pile o' parts:



So um... wow... I got a LOT of work to do when I get home.

My future plans as it is right now: All minor bolt ons from here on out, are as they will be for a WHILE... The supercharger drained my money... so I gotta save up some again. DOES IT EVER END!!!???

~Livernois Motorsports Forged 298ci shortblock
~Smaller blower pulley, for more boost
~Heads and head work... new valves with a 1mm oversized valve, springs, locks and retainers. Ported and polished.
~BBR Stg. 1 cams/lockouts
~Wheels and tires: Bogarts, Shelby American Racing Razors, or Shelby CS40/CS69's.

So, like I said earlier, anything you wanna know, just ask. Hope to get in with you guys... and make some new friends, and talk about MUSTANGS!!!

Re: New guy from Tennessee, currently deployed to Iraq

Thank you for your service. I'm a vet of the 1st Gulf War. Was a USAF firefighter stationed at King Fahd Int'l Airport from Aug '90 - March '91.

I just bought my third Mustang ('09 GT 45th Anniversary - Torch Red) last Wednesday. Had an '86 GT and an '89 LX 5.0 prior. Won't be geeting rid of this one any time soon. My 10 year old son informed me and my wife that it will be his first car in 6 years.

I hope you make it back safe so you can feed your '05 some fresh asphalt and a few Camaros.
