New to the Ford Family

Camaro guy converted!
In 2011 it was between the SS or GT & I went with the SS. Didn't waste anytime before mods started and ended up running low 10's as my DD. SS is gone now and I ordered a 2015 GT Premium auto 7 weeks ago and it should be in any day now. Can't wait to get it and get started but will build mostly for show this time. Looking forward to all the help from the forum. I have a lot of questions on suspension and wheel setups..

What Nate said Steeda wheel hop kit, which for the IRS I think it's just bearing replacement. Or if it isn't, look into upgrading bearings. It will make the car a lot more planted in corners. Benefits to drag racing, I couldn't tell you, not my cup of tea.

Silver s550 has the kit and drags a lot and likes it. You could consider messaging him about it

I too soon will be a new Ford family member. I ordered my GT on Apr 16th, not here yet and the wait is killing me. I plan to do a few modifications right away, will lower it immediately and exhaust upgrade. Hope you get yours soon, dealership told me 6-8 weeks when I placed the order.

The one thing you probably will notice is not getting as much power out of mofs
