Question I am THE newb!

Just bought a 2003 GT. It looks like a gun metal type color. But has a LOT of metal flake in it...not sure if Ford of all companies uses a metal flake but it GLEAMES in the sun! Love this car. KR500 18's offset, K and N CAI, Flowmaster cat back, 5 speed, all black interior, just gorgeous. But I'm a new guy...not sure where to go from here with her. So many options with this car. I just sold my 97 3000GT for this car. There weren't so many options with that mitsubishi, but this car seems to have endless possibilities. I'm looking for a new shifter cause 3rd gear is a real pain to find when I'm at the track. Doesnt want to slip into 3rd without a fight sometimes. Is that a common problem found in these transmissions? also looking to do all the possibly bolt ons before I move to nitrous. Nitrous is in the very very near future but I'm worried about how well the 4.6 2v will handle the juice...plastic intake and a 100 shot dont seem to mesh well together. But i know very little about the performance of this car. I just love it though. any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: I am THE newb!

Welcome.

MGW LTD., INC. - CNC Machined and Turned Parts. Accessories for the Corvette, Mustang, and Viper .... sole option for shifter....period...end of story.

It will take the shot of nitrous, just make sure you don't get any pooling or it will effectively and proficiently remove the intake in several pieces. It is all about the tune. Good tune, it will live.

And a side note, the rims are FR500's. Nothing better than FR500s in my mind....but I'm biased.

And I believe the color name you are looking for is mineral gray...I believe that was the metallic color. I don't believe Dark Shadow Gray was metallic...but someone will correct me if I am wrong. My Girlfriend and I have the same color and intend to put the same rims on.

You will definitely be happy with the car. just remember....MGW shifter...end of story.

Re: I am THE newb!

Wow! shows just how new I am when i cant even get the name of my rims correct on here! Well thanks for the advice though. I've been reading up on that shifter...how difficult would it be to install? Do you have any advice on which Nitrous setup would work the best with this car? How does pooling happen? Any safety measures I can add to prevent an explosion? money is not an option so if there is anything that can make my nitrous experience a good one, please let me know. Thanks again.

Re: I am THE newb!

thank you! Just reading a post where these guys are arguing over cams or nitrous. Hilarious! Bad for a newb to read though. kinda puts me off putting the juice to my new baby.

Re: I am THE newb!

Welcome to the site. I'd also recommend that MGW shifter. It took me about 20 minutes to install it on my 03 and that's just because I was taking my time and cleaning as I went.

As far as nitrous...never messed with it myself...but I'd at least make sure you have a window switch as well as a double safety of some sort to ensure you don't spray while doing the burnout or prepping...

Re: I am THE newb!

Hmmm...so that is DSG and not mineral? I can never tell the difference in pics unless they are side by side.
