Planning on working on a friends 2012 v6 silver. She wants it to look and sound mean. So this is what I have planned:
*Muffler delete (sounds great in her and my opinion and its free)
*matte black tailight trim
*black out decklid
*California special spoiler
*boss style c stripes matte black
*matte black roof
*18" bullitt motorsports black (reuse current tire)
*hood scoop (gt350 style. I personally dont like the look of the large one on the v6. Looks great on a gt though!)
*split hood stripe decal
*chin spoiler
*raxiom halo headlights
*tinted windows
*black painted stock pony grill and headlight pillars

Sound good?

Sounds good, but if you take out the muffler at least straight pipe it all the way out the *** end

Ive been debating this. At first there wont be any so we can determine if she likes the sound. Then I really like it dumped race style which would give it a nice echo. Its kinda up to me because she really likes me ^.^

Why necessarily a tach? A tach is your rpm gauge. Gauges I like show air to fuel, volt is nice but not necessary, maybe an oil temp gauge, and water is a good one. Should be pretty simple. Ill see if I can find a write up

Alright so those who know me know I rock a cadillac cts now. Its the 3.6L 6 Speed Standard. Well... my engine started making a loud clanking sound and sucked up all my oil. Had my mechanic come out to check on it and it will need a lot of bottom end work. Therefore im swapping in a 6.0 v8 ls motor (hate on me for using chevy/ gm, but it is easier to work with. Plus I will always love mustangs - my heart and passion). I will be bolting it up with a giant k&n and simple tune, long tube headers, x pipe no cats, and flowmaster 44s. Dumped more than likely. The transmission will be replaced with either a gto standard or camaro standard with atleast a stage 2 clutch. Basically ill be doing a v conversion and then it will still make more hp and tq. Aproximately 415 hp and then 40 more ft/lb of tq than the stock v. And im 18. My mechanic sets me up with a hell of a deal of 3.5k inc labor and he will help me part out the current engine and trans. Fun things to come within a month it should be done hopefully!

Don't do the roof with a spray can its really hard to get good coverages in such a large area specially the top. Do the stripes its easier and won't take so many cans.

I took my horse out of her stall and barn today, and let her run around the country side today for the first time in a month.

Dry streets with no salt today, too bad I had to put her back in the barn for a couple more weeks of this bad winter roads and salt/brine.
