First Mods

I have a 2011 v6 mustang. Any pointers on what the first mods should be? I will post pics later today. I am looking to do any interior or exterior mods. Thanks.

Re: First Mods

thanks for the reply? I am very new to mustang modifying so excuse me if I ask stupid questions. Any tips on lowering springs and does that require low profile tires? Thanks.

I've got eibach pro-kit springs now but I'm waiting for my eibach sportlines to make my car lower. The pro-kit springs are fine for most but me personally want to go lower. You can run the springs with your stock wheels/tires np.

Re: First Mods

As far as performance goes, what is the best mod for a v6?

Wow, very nice car. Those springs have to help the handling and ride on the car. I like the staggered wheel set up.

Thanks ! And how much you looking to spend?? Tuner and gears would be best bang for your buck for performance.

If you check out american muscle, they got vids of there 11 V6 project car. They add mods and show the dyno and track results. Could check out their website or on youtube.

Re: First Mods

Unfortunately, I cannot do everything at once so I have to do a little at a time. This is the third mustang I have owned and the first one I will have the chance to put mods on. My goal is to build up the horsepower and enough mods to change the look so it will be unlike the other sterling gray 2011 ponies out there.

Did you have to do anything special to have the staggered wheel setup? Does it mess with the speedometer at all?

I think most are with you on that! We can't all do everything at once. You don't need anything special for the wheels, no problems. And get some pics up of your car!!!

The closer you stick to OEM tire size, the less effect it will have on your speedo/odo. If you stick to less than 1" diff than stock, you s/b fine and you can adjust the speedo w/ a tuner. Cyclone's tires are almost dead nuts the same height. Heard staggered can cause ABS issues but havent gotten a solid answer on that yet. Any issues Cyc?

Re: First Mods

thanks wheelman! I also want staggered. I should be getting in soon a few pieces from American Muscle that I have ordered to help with the looks of the car. Such as rear blackout deck lid, tail light and headlight covers, and painted mirror covers. When I get those put on I will post some pics. Thanks guys for the input and any other info is much appreciated.

Oh, you gotta get exhaust done. Grab a set of axle-backs!! It's not an option, it's a must with a stang!

Re: First Mods

I am nervous about getting exhaust on a v6 mustang. I dont want the sound of a rice burner. Do you go with an x or h pipe and headers with the exhaust?

These newer 6's sound very good! I've got magnaflow axle-backs which are basically just mufflers and tips and it sounds incredible imo. Stock manifolds and mid-pipes. Very deep in lower RPM's but in the higher RPM's it's got a nice sporty exotic type sound. I love it! I had an 04 V6 prior and wasn't thrilled w/ the sound. These newer stangs are much improved! You won't be disappointed

Re: First Mods

I will take your word on this one. IMO I think you have to mod the exhaust on mustangs but like I said earlier having a v6 made me nervous. I will deff. do the exhaust on mine. Thanks for mentioning that. I am sure I will replace pipes and headers. I tend to go overboard on stuff like this. I had a 2005 mustang and put flow masters on it and I hated the sound. I got rid of it and now I have my 2011. I love the car, just do not want to go overbard with it.
