Everything in batches.
03 mach

Tint
03 black cobra rims and tires
Tri ax shifter
JLT RAI
BAMA tuner
Flowmaster super 40 catback
Replacement headlights with clear sides

Sequential tail lights
Rear control arms
JBA offroad H

Corbeau lg1 w seats (best buy I think)
Not installed yet but in the garage.
Eibach pro plus kit (springs shocks struts sway bars)
Misc bushings
Steeda bump steer kit
Cc plates
Clutch quadrant, adjuster, cable and pedal stop.
Raxiom smoked tails

I feel like I'm missing something.

Basically I went for driving feel, then theatre, then performance.

Future mods.
Next year.
Magnum t56 long ratio with rear end build (probably stick with 355 rear but build the axles and diff)

Following year
Either:
Forged short block
or
Forged stroker kit for a teksid prepped block.
Also do a full build on the heads with (probably) fr500 cams (springs etc) and full cc machining, intake too.

Year after that...
Blower. Something quiet. Prob one if the Sq blowers. Aiming for 550 rw while being totally streetable and bulletproof.

Late 01 GT (after the PI upgrade in April)
1. Changed all fluids, plugs, etc. (idiot previous owner still had factory plugs at 107k)
2. Ditched the 20" ghetto wheels for 18" chrome cobras and 245/45 front, 315/35 rear NT555Rs
2. New headlights (mine were almost useless)
3. H&R SS springs
4. BBK intake (got it used for practically free)
5. MGW
6. Valeo Cobra clutch with FRPP TOB and pilot bearing (had a dry shift fork and my TOB decided it wanted to be shrapnel). Had the flywheel resurfaced and lightened as well.
7. 4.10s
8. Cut out 2 cats
9. Cheap set of Flowmaster 40s
10. 15% tint
11. Chin spoiler
12. 3" ViS Racing carbon fiber cowl
13. Repainted my front bumper and wing
14. 3" beveled tips
That's all I can remember right now.

First thing I did was install a new set of headlights. The ones that came on it were tinted and one fogged up really bad.
