New owner from ABQ

Hey whats going on guys, just picked up a 2011 Mustang GT premium (6spd) yesterday! Its completely stock except for a Roush axle back, and apparently a short shifter? (or so I am told)
Traded my fully bolted Fiesta ST in for this, great car, but I will never use it for what it was made for, and I really missed having some V8 rumble. Not to mention the fact that basic bolt ons and a tune gets you to 400ish whp, which is nice. Also I think I'm a little bias, my dad always owned 5.0's, so I kinda grew up with them.

I'm no stranger to the car world, in my 25 years on this earth I have owned a Mustang SVO, 1980 Z28, Acura Integra, big turbo SRT-4, RX8, big turbo Mazdaspeed6, MX5 miata, CTS-V, Fiesta ST (was a moderator on 2 sites), and now the Mustang.

As far as the mustang goes, I can't wait to start modding it.
I think I am going to slap an X pipe in, and replace whatever piping is left down there with some 3", intake/bama tune, maybe a 302 mani, who knows. The suspension on this car really needs to be addressed too, its WAY to soft and bouncy, so shocks/springs are also high up on the list, as well as new wheels down the road.
I'm also open to whatever advice/opinions you guys have to offer. I'm new, and will basically just be reading threads on here for the next month until I can grasp the do's and don'ts of the 5.0

The Fiesta




The 5.0

Nice ride, condition looks like new. The more I look at these cars the more I like them. That Fiesta's quite the sex beast too. If that's what you did to that thing can't wait to see what you do to the Stang.

Haha, I think my girlfriend would kill me if I spent as much on the mustang as I did the fiesta.

I was just about to get that thing dyno'd for the 2nd time. Was hoping for 215whp and 280wtq, which is pretty damn good for a 1.6L!

Nice man! Maybe I'll see you around town.


Any of you guys have recommendations for custom tunes? I was going to go the bama route, but apparently their tunes aren't very aggressive. Though the tunes for life program is very appealing, especially because I'll be moving back to sea level in a few months.

I read you guys offer a military discount too, so I'll probably just end up using that since I doubt I can wait until 50 posts to buy something lol
