Cool Just saying HI and my acceptance of reality.

I'm new in the Mustang community and before I got my 2007 V6 I didn't know nothing about Mustangs..I mean..I didnt know nothing about cars at all.
I was just looking for a vehicle with four wheel and an steering wheel that could take me from point A to Point B.
And there was something magic about those Mustangs at the dealership ( I didnt get the V8 because i didnt know how to drive stick...yeah I know that's ****ed up, went to war, jumped out of airplanes but cant drive a ****ing stick hahaha)..but im working on it.

Owning a Mustang opened a new world to me, I used to hate working on cars, now I love getting dirty and working on my baby constantly, but I also set deal with reality about the power on V6s.
With Mods Im currently at 257 whp, and to be honest I decided to stay focus on looks from now on.
V6s are the ones that keep the branch alive with the sales, and you can have a beautiful V6 without turning into a ricer i found out.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi to the community.

Thanks

Mostly the basics, but I focused also in reducing the weight.
Here's the list.
Catback dual exhaust, high flow cats, shorty headers ( I wrapped those with insulation to drop temperatures in the engine bay a little), CAI with tune, SD coil.
And for the weight :
Aluminum driveshaft, rear seat gone, modular K member, and not always but when I know there will some action, I leave the spare tire and jack back at home (not recommended ) and the most important of course, me dropping 25 pounds at the gym (looks great on the owner and your car will appreciate it)

I'm also thinking about making it a 4.2.( I'm still looking information on that one).

There's no way you've got 257rwhp with those mods
