So I guess that would explain why your chin splitter looks different then mine. The good thing about the Premiums is, you get a rear diffuser I believe?

Isn't it satisfying knowing you are driving a manual 5.0 now? At least I don't get those questions anymore "Is it a GT?!" or "Is it a manual?!". It got old.....quick.

It's not that for me, I'm more on going back to where I started driving.. "manual" back where I came from they are only 5% auto and the rest are manual and I miss it so much that everytime I see one I cringe and just want to shift or sometimes I play around with my old car trying to shift imagining as if it was a manual.. Yeah it was that bad, I actually have to learn how to drive an auto when I got here in this beautiful country,i didn't realize how easy it was lol and getting a gt was just a bonus..

Hehe... Im still in mourn, I'll give it a few days to change my pic.. This is for my old beast 2013 3.7 stang.. It was nice riding with you..

Is this the same as the strut tower brace from s197? Hmm I'm really just concentrating on the exhaust right now. Lol thanks though for the suggestion.

I don't believe so. This is similar to the GT one on the 15-16 except that one says Ford Racing on it and it is black. Also, these strut braces have an additional part to them instead of the normal bar that ran across.

I think that Ford puts a similar one in the convertible. The one in our 2015 GT 'vert is silver, but also has the brace that connects the tower brace to the firewall, but that part is black.
I still have cowl shake -- but can't imagine how much worse it would be without both bracing pieces.

Oh funny thing, i saw a car with those stripes yesterday at a car show. I wasn't able to get a picture though as i saw it when he was leaving. Those stripes look so much nicer in person.

Idk if that was you though, as i think we are on opposite sides of the country.

My father has a 2014 5.0 stock and compared to my modded 3.7 it feels slower. Not saying it is slower but its an automatic and the shifts are horrible, the 3:15 gears is nothing like my 3:73 gears. I have driven my fathers 5.0 and this is how I am basing this opinion.

Just a near stock 3.7

Not saying its not! Lol. Just auto to auto, his 5.0 felt it lacked big time and not the first time I noticed it. I test drove a 13 GT automatic and it lacked compared to my modded 3.7.

Just come over to the dark side, you know you want to change that "305 HP" to "420 HP".
