Re: If u had $10000

I'd spend it on the wife's 05 GT, a blower, suspension mods, some Recarro's, new front fascia...

I'd go buy either a 2012 ZX-10R, or a 2012 BMW S1000RR.....oh wait you meant spent on my car……First I'd pay it off then probably get a crate motor.

Body kit, supercharger, color changing halo lights. If anything is left, then upgrade the engine internals.

Hey there's nothing wrong in getting a 2010 I got a extremely good deal and
got all the horsepower for free done to it from the dealership cause a friend owns it so I'm not complaining lol but yea it did kind of make me mad a little bit when the 5.0 came out but I will have one or a new Shelby the 2010 will be my son when he get older

Look into a new shelby 5.8 block and lower end. They look to have the same 13 bolt head pattern all modular 4v have. Waiting to see what I could use as heads. Make a n/a build!

Re: If u had $10000

Can't understand why having a extra 10k would make you SELL you car if you don't like it what is stopping you from selling it now?

For me I would do this
MUSTANG IRS - Independent Rear Suspensions For New & Classic Ford Mustangs
And then a Griggs front end
Then a Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger
I just love the way that thing is setup Oh wait I ran out of money
