Best wife

Just got home from work to find out my wife had picked this up for me. Also says my bama tuner and cai is on back order but should be here by Monday next week.

Nice. If I didn't drive so far for work I was would have wanted 3.73 but I still will be very happy with the 3.55. Now I need a few ideas on what to do next tho. I was thinking aluminum drive shaft but after that not really sure what to do.

Nice.
Well u have the same motor as me just a different intake manifold ii believe. A nice size tb/plenum would be a awesome addition. I got a 78mm and it's awesome. Mid pipe and cat back as well. I believe you have the same transmission too so I would recommend a mgw shifter, even if it's different....ud pulled as well...all easy mods. If u can do all ur exhaust at once do some long tubes too

You guys are lucky.. My gf knows absolutely nothing about cars so doesn't get me anything besides maybe a mustang wallet or key chain or something like that. I'll take what I can get I suppose...

Re: Best wife

My wife was the one who kept telling me that I work hard, and I should live a little. By live a little, she meant for me to go and buy the car I've wanted for years. So, that's how I ended up ordering my new Mustang. It's nice when you have the support of the CFO...lol.

I'm an old man, so I am afraid to risk the warranty, but I plan on a few easy mods: axle backs, MGW shifter, new grille, and some vinyl striping. Once the warranty goes bye-bye, then it will be 3.73's and a tune.

Hillbillyzombie,

Awesome man, You'll love the 3.55's! As far as mods go, the Bama tuner and Airaid CAI will pick up 30+RWHP on its own . Your car reacts really well to mods, a Cat-less x-pipe and Boss intake manifold would benefit you greatly! Also a Throttle Body and Drive Shaft and your cars headed for the mid 11's with a good tire.

I hope this helps, let me know if you ever have any questions!

Re: Best wife

Whoops, sorry about that guys! Since your running the V6 I would still recommend Exhaust, CAI, Throttle body, Drive shaft and a Tune. Just not the Boss manifold, I think you'll be very happy with that set up.
