mods i've done thus far.

ok, here it goes,
Eibach GT Pro lowering spring kit.
Tokico High Performance struts and shocks.
c/c plates, maximum motor sports
JBA shorty headers
UPR GT x-pipe w/cats
FlowMaster Amarican Thunder catback system.

went with shorty headers, too much trouble with long tube, pipedream i guess, no pun intended. had a little trouble matching up the UPR x-pipe to the headers but with a little help, meaning slightly bending the x-pipe i was able to get it done. sounds great, nice and throty at idle and does nor rasp when snapping the throttle. got to get used to how low the stang sits now, keep hitting my head on the roof. like i said will get pics up soon, got to but my car on hold for a while, my wife's 05 ford taurus transmission went, something about the torque converter splines to the pump shaft stripping out. will be back later.

That sucks about your wife's car but definitely a nice list of mods for your car. Lowering was one of my favorite mods.

Re: mods i've done thus far.

lowering is the first thing a lot of people do because all cars no matter what kind come out of the factory too high .

Re: mods i've done thus far.

yea, i agree, that was the first thing a friend did to his 06 mustang gt, then did his entire exhaust, then replaced the entire suspension including lower a-arms, plus a torque box in the rear. you should see that mustang, needs to be in ( mustangs and fast fords).

Yeah a lowered mustang looks real good as long as it's not street scrapeing low.

Vary stable, even when cornering hard, i do autocross with the mustang. worth buying as a first upgrade, combined with stiffer anti-roll bars i might cut a sec. or two off my time.
