If you have a place to work and two people it is not that hard. But you need two folks to remove the bumper covers and such and its easier if you can get it up in the air on a lift to remove all the underside bolts and stuff. I paid the local body shop like ~2 hours pay to do it.

Here is the kit I bought as I had lower fog lights already and the switch inside.

Email them and see if you can get them to send you the install instructions.

Never assume! Quicker yes, faster? NO. and yes, shifting will be a HUGE part of your challenges. Shifting @ 6900 is an art form. MT82 doesn't like it. Not designed for it.

Yes I used the wrong term. Quicker is different then faster (end trap speed)

You're fine on your term Art. There's no need to nit pick the terminology. Through a quarter mile chances are faster is appropriate. Top end no. BTW here is Websters definition of Fast: 1fast adjective \ˈfast\
: moving or able to move quickly

: happening quickly : taking a short amount of time

: operating quickly


To the end of the ratios usefulness it is indeed faster. Got to its own top end quicker, faster, before the higher ratio does.

BTW Guys, the best "Add On" is a set of Golden Tan Seat Covers in the ShotGun seat. [Points for the first to get this post]

Quick question, if I were to put on a pair of flowmaster axel back should I keep or take off the catalytic converters? I want a nice deeper then stock sound not too loud. I have been told that the car sounds much better without them on.

Quick follow up question, do you live in a state where they require vehicle inspections? The answer to that one is also the answer to the "should I keep my cats?" question.

No I don't need them for inspection, really does it make it sound that much better?

IMO, keep the cats on. First and most important, it does not matter if your state has, or does not have, inspections. It's a federal law that requires catalitic converters. If you sell or trade a vehicle in that is supposed to have them, and they are not installed, you can be held liable for a fine (large one), even if you sell the car "as is". A dealership cannot sell a vehicle without cats (if they were originally required for the vehicle).

Should you travel around without them, you stand the risk of getting an officer to pull you over and give you a citation.

Unless you are building an all out race car for off road (read track only) duty only, it's just not worth removing the cats. They already flow quite well. Not like the cats of long ago.

What are the best bolt on mods for a 2013 v6 mustang.

I agree with bucko. Going cat-less on a DD can be very risky.

There are also "high-flow" catalytic converter options out there which can be paired with long tube headers for decent gains and louder sound. Although, for them to be federally legal, they have to be certified replacements or they're just as bad as having no cats (legality-wise).

Yea, they are great to look at, offer great benefits, even extreme gains; but sometimes are very high maintenance...You need to make sure of the specs, or expectations before the install

I went with a pair of magnaflows and kept the cats sounds great, thanks for the advice it would sound too crazy without the cats and going through the trouble with the law would not be worth it.

Something that has not been mentioned yet and while it won't make your car any faster is replacing the stock speakers with ones that are not made from recycled kazoos.

Ain't it great when friends help you spend your $

I have wondered where all the Kazoos went to, cant find them at the 5 N Dime anymore. So ford got them all? Crap, I have been hankerin' to make awful irritating noises with one for a couple decades, Dag NabIT.

Nice one, but I thought my pony package v6 was pretty loud in a good way.
