Decisions

I don't know what I want to do with my car . Maybe some one on here will give me some good advice. I'm pretty set on selling the procharger kit I have (or what pieces I have) and possibly selling my car and moving up to a 11+ gt or a 03/04 cobra and then I keep throwing around the idea of just coyote swap my car which I've had for a few years and know it's a good solid car. What ever I end up with/doing it won't be my daily driver but I will drive it everyday it isn't raining ... May possibly just sell and go buy a cummins 4x4. I'm lost and don't know what to do lol

You've thrown out lots of choices, and its sounds like any suggestions we may offer here are only going to confuse you.
Just make sure that whatever direction you decide to go here, that you find a way to be SURE.
Otherwise, you may be in a similar situation over on the Cummins forum in too short a time.

If you are thinking of selling it and getting a Coyote or a Termi sell it and get a Coyote or a Termi. Part out your go fast parts and then sell it as a stock good running GT for a solid chunk to put towards the car you really want.

^That. I would spend some time driving your car and asking yourself if your really happy with it before spending anymore money on it.

I would also try and find a dealer and test drive a Cobra, Coyote, and any other car your interested in to see if you would even want that car. When I was looking for a new car there were a few cars that I thought would be great cars on paper but after driving them just didn't click with me.

^This sounds the best. If it isn't going to be your daily then I'm thinking it's going to be a street/strip termi.
Used procharger kit: 3k
Good condition GT: 5-7k
Total for termi: 8-10k
With that money I would buy a low mileage 03-04 Cobra from a dealer for 20k or less. Then use that GT/procharger kit money and build it right. If you play your cards right then you'll end up with a 500hp+ termi for the same price as a used good condition coyote sitting at around 25k. But hey I'm still in college so have fun with this one for me

Screw getting a Terminator from a dealer... Hell no. SVTP market or someone you know. Buy from an enthusiast who you know took care of it and didn't hear the **** out of it.

Wouldn't buy from a dealer. But my local ford had a comp orange Terminator $17,675 in August of 14. Needed some work but maybe something to go by.

Problem with the Cummins is that its wrapped in a Dodge... Unless you find a F650 or 750 or something lol.

The 6.0s that are bulletproofed are fine. And the fact that "oh noes 6.0!" drives the price down. They are hot rods compared to the 7.3 although having driven a 7.3 regularly for years, that thing would probably tow a house.

I've driven prob over 2 dozen different mustangs and a few trucks over the past month or 2 and out of everything I've driven I've come to a conclusion that I'm going to buy a mach1 . I like everything about them the termi I drove was plenty nice I just can't justify spending that much on it right now . Now the search begins to find the right Mach 1 (color, 5 speed,60k miles or less ) and I can't find one local with in 250 miles of Tampa fl for sale with under 80k miles. ahh now the fun begins lol
