Close..... I'll give him the benefit of the doubt most of the money/mods in the car you can't actually see unless you are inside it or look under it.

If Jake offered any less than $5000 for your car, you need to call him up, set up a time to meet, and then bยกtch slap him for making that insulting offer!

He probably went on KBB and looked up blue book value for a 2000something GT with 100k on it. Hell even the one I just bought KBBs at $5000 with 34k miles on it. NADA agrees.


Ppl who try to offer those values for these cars in really good shape are idiots especially a numbered car like yours.

Especially if the car has more than its worth in mods.... I know you don't really add any value for mods, but the coilovers, torque arm, panhard bar, and wheels should definitely add a bit.

No... mods do add to the car. If done right. I see "modded" ones all the time on CL/forum classifieds that need to just be lit on fire but one that is done well like yours is one where the mods add the the value.

2001 Bullitt Build Thread

Speaking of which I may do the catalytic converter mod during summer. The Sacramento and Elk Grove PD have been cracking down big time on modified cars. Especially Mustangs since there are so many dimwits with foxbodies that like to shut meets down by doing donuts. Gotta make the car legal, or at least look legal (hollowed cats)

It will take some fabricating but definitely run a piece of tubing through the cat. If you don't, the exhaust will get to those large empty chambers and tumble. I'll bet the torque loss will be very noticeable on these little engines!
It was noticeable on my big block powered truck when I hollowed the cat. That engine has a big reserve of torque though.
I'm actually fabricating a cat delete for it right now! It's been a real pain finding the necessary pieces just to make this goddamned thing! There isn't any aftermarket support for a 25 year old truck! Very little anyways...

And a word of advice. If you need to have anything fabricated or welded, don't mention what you are doing.
I went to SPD exhaust in Sac, about a month ago, to have this cat delete fabricated by them. I made the mistake of bringing in the Y pipe to show them the flange that I needed to connect the delete to. The dude looked at it and said "Sure, we can make all of the pieces but we are NOT going to weld up a cat delete for you".
Haha.
Lesson learned!

Muffler Tech in Sacramento is a sponsor for my club. May be able to get something worked out. Not sure if they will though.

2001 Bullitt Build Thread

Or you could live in a happy state where they don't care or want to know if your car stinks to a machine.
That's a big reason why I wanted to get out of Cali ASAP when my enlistment ended.
Good luck getting your cat delete made soccer. I personally don't mind the smell from mine.

I already don't have cats, haven't run them for over 2 years without any issue. Only reason i want fake ones in right now is in case an officer decides to look under the car. Other than that i don't have any issues, Cali laws aren't as bad as people think, they are easy to get around.

Maybe the guy didn't know any better. When i first started liking mustangs i didn't know wtf a Bullitt was. I also never heard of a steeda mustang until you got one (i do know about their online store and cars they built but not production cars). Not everyone puts these cars on a pedestal like us and if might just be a good looking car for them and thats it. Then again i could be wrong and he probably watches to much gas monkey garage and thinks he learned some skills idk..... Either way your car is really nice i can't deny that

Easy to say but not everyone does know. Not everyone can HEAR the difference between a cobra and a gt. Take all the idiots on CL selling their srs mustang or think they own a mach 1 cause the tweeter pods say mach because they either don't know or expect others to bite. Yes he could have googled wtf Bullitt meant when he saw the badge but I'm sure he had something else to do. I don't want to start something but I'm just saying that to some its just another car

Stainless dummy cats with 2.5" diameter are $40 each. Not worth it if you are going with a totally new pipe IMO (like I am) but if you already have a pipe and need to pass visual they are a good deal. I'll post the link for them when I get home.

I like the current exhaust set up. Just want it to look legal. Since a midpipe with high flow cats won't be CARB legal anyway. They gotta look like stock cats.

Just gotta pull the dead pedal and then the carpet can come out. Then I'll remove the sound deadening tomorrow and put it back together.

Just mocked up the seats since I had to get them out of the way for the corvette. I can definitely tell that I sit lower in the car and the angle you sit at is perfect.

If anyone is wondering. The stock driver seat weighed 62 pounds and the passenger weighed 44 pounds... The new Cobeaus with brackets weighed in at 30 pounds each.

The spring rates are fairly stiff. I haven't even noticed a difference in ride height with the seats completely out, and thats about 106 pounds. Maybe it'll change a little with another 45 out.

You keeping the seats to have in case you ever put it back to stock? Could probably get some decent coin for them provided the driver's seat is in decent shape. And not too farted in...

I'm keeping them for now... And the only wear the driver seat has is the left bolster, which is the one you rub whenever you get in and out of the car.

Looks great in the moch-up pic. Nice weight drop too. Could you tell how much the carpet sound deadening weighed?

Also, how do you get the rear seat bottom out? The last time I had a rear seat out was in my 76 Cutlass and I don't even remember if there were bolts anywhere. I justdidn't want go in there and start pulling on it.

Removing the sound deadening is the goal for today. About to start. The rear seat bottom was easy. Kinda pull up ok it and then there is a tab under each seat area that you press forward with a screwdriver. Super easy.

Thanks for the tip on the rear seats. Did you ever see a manufacturing "build sheet" that so many people say exists under rear seats on Mustangs (and other cars)?

Nope. But I found the other Bullitt production number sticker. The same one that's on the shock tower. You can see it in the last pic I posted.
