Newbie from Virginia

Hi everybody!

I just joined this forum today and this is my first post.

I drive an '05 Torch Red GT with the usual bolt-ons and exterior modifications. This si far from my first Ford, but only my second Mustang.

Thanks,

I have a K&N CAI and just got it tuned a few days ago on a Dyno, with an SCT tuner.

It doesn't have a lot of "GO" parts but I did add FRPP shorty headers, an X pipe with Flowmasters, an electric water pump, a one piece aluminum drive shaft, and FRPP 4:10 gears.

The rest of the non cosmetic stuff is in the suspension, BMR upgraded front and rear sway bars, BMR adjustable UPC & LCA's, BMR adjustable Panhard bar, Steeda Panhard rod, and MM caster camber plates.

A few days ago I installed Tokico shocks and lowering springs ao all 4 corners to improve the ride quality somewhat.

I also installed a front DS loop from Granatelli and upgraded my brakes to drilled & slotted rotors with Hawke pads.

Two items that are sort of show and go (LOL) are the shaker hood and a TCI ratchet shifter which was a great improvement in manually shifting the 5R55S.

There are some pics of my ride in this album:

Re: Newbie from Virginia

nice, my friend has an 08 gt with UD pulley, c&l race cai, ford racing axle back, and a SCT tune from bamachips.com and he put down 300rwhp with a bit lean (2=4% lean) with that fixed he should do 310-315 so not bad for such few add ons

Re: Newbie from Virginia

You should look into doing the Charge Motion Plate Delete. I am hearing the delete is doing good for numbers!

Re: Newbie from Virginia

if you are going to take the intake off for delete plates you may want to just do the C&L intake or the ford racing version when it becomes available

Re: Newbie from Virginia

The rear valance is from 3D Carbon I painted that black with the same paint I used on the front spoiler.

I wanted to remove all the chrome from the outside of the car so what ever I couldn't remove (fake gas cap for example) I got in black (grill pony) or painted black (GT fender badges).

No problem... it was about $220.00 I think from CJ Pony Parts.
