Oh I'm going to! For now I get to use some car payments toward a purchase of a CAI so that will be up next on the shopping list PENDING the ole lady doesn't find out about the tuner.

Never, at least not before I have the chance to head up your way & show you how a V8 performs.

LMAO. I'm supposed to be putting my money away for my wedding also, but I just went out and bought this GT so it may take me a bit longer to save. Lol

Hold out for as long as you can! Apparently the ole lady wants to drop like $300 on passion party garb and I told her the trade-off is me buying a CAI and new tires in the next little while. The condition was also that she is disallowed to b*tch when I make my purchases.

Well you may be able to negotiate the CAI and tires but I know from experience the b*tchin will stay. Lol Although my fiancé does like being seen in my GT so she's happy when I buy some stuff for it, until I tell her what I spent. Lol

Re: Just purchased my 1st mod..

Dropped in the race tune, hit the gas station for some supreme fuel.. Wow.. That is all I can say. The throttle response is sooooo much better, the shifting is nice & tight, and the car just b-lines it like I've never seen before. Definitely the best $380 I've spent on a car. Thank you to all of the people who have posted on here. This tuner was much more than I ever expected.

The tuner alone had me showing my ooh ooh ooh face. Next up will be the CAI and THEN the gears. Tires will have to be in there somewhere as well. Thanks again for the insight peeps.

Had to let the ole lady drive the 'Stang all day yesterday. The tuner was stashed behind the drivers seat and the directions were under the drivers side floor mat. She didn't find it.

She was none too thrilled when I brought home my ticket for operation of a vehicle without a front plate tonight. $122 minimum fine.

Oh that is safe and sound. Next big check will probably be the CAI though.

Re: Just purchased my 1st mod..

I don't want to sound preachy or anything but keeping secrets from your soon to be wife is not a good way to start your life together I always let my wife know what I am doing with our money and we have only had two fights in the twenty eight years we have been together.
