But I do hate my 4x4

---------- Post added at 11:45 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:41 PM ----------

I did think about running the engine with out the charger to break it though. So maybe I'll do suspension before the S/C

So I'm lookin at the high output procharger kit because it's inter cooled

But how can u get more boost out of a centi?

---------- Post added at 11:45 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:45 PM ----------

It'll be build low compression for the charger

Look fast ---> feel fast ---> go fast

Visuals ---> drivetrain/suspension ---> power adders

That's just me though...

Keep checking on CL... Don't rely on forum classifieds too much... Keep the transaction as local as possible. Shipping would hurt bad bro.

Thinking a 2" drop

Replace all the shocks and struts too. But coil overs would be cool also. But so dang expensive.

Question: not many performance shops in oklahoma that I know of, do u think a ford dealer would put in a 8.8 rear end and gears?

Not sure about that... But if they would, you might as well give them your left arm.

Coilovers would be nice... I went with springs though... Eibach sportlines would give you about 2" drop... I have prokits.... Don't want it too low.

Nope. GTs are a little heavier than sixxers that's why there are GT and V6 specific springs...

Yes true but the gt with v6 springs will settle lower than what's stated and a v6 with gt springs a little higher but it's not much maybe .2-.3 of an inch

It also depends on what condition your shocks and struts are and if they compliment lowering springs. At first I was running stock shock/struts with my prokits and the car was sitting a little lower than it should... Now that I replaced the stockers with tokico blues... It's sitting the way it should be.

I don't think it's quite popular on this site but a lot of people cut about a coil off the stock springs to lower the car... Looks pretty darn good I should say... I would've done that if I've learned about it back then before I ordered my springs.

Sometimes you just get lucky and find really good deals! $110 is not bad at all... Sportlines are usually $250+ right? Heck, I got a tuner for $100! Lol

You got those rims for free??

1.75" front with 1.5" rear. they're normally $289.99 I think. I also go my maximum motorsports caster camber plates used for $75 shipped from eBay. Normally $189.99 I think. Yea my rims were free but I would really like some 17". 20" is to big for me but IMO it beats my stock 15". Plus for some reason, the ladies love big shiny wheels haha.

I'd leave the halos to beamers... Just me. I've seen really dark OEM styles... Looks cool during the day... Poor light output at night. Of course you can't expect it to have the same light output like the non smoked ones right... Plus, if you're running HIDs, the color temp would be slightly different. (8k would look like 6k)
