Every Mustang Needs These!!!

In my opinion, every Mustang that rolls off the production line needs...

1. New shifter (manual)
2. Lowered

Re: Every Mustang Needs These!!!

I would agree with the lowering part, but I really like the shifter in the 11's, it seems to be a good throw and accurate, more so then other stock cars I have seen. What it really needs is the gas and break pedals to be separated a little further, for heal toe....just my two cents.

I thought my 500 had an okay shifter until I installed a MGW. 1000% better yes 1000% not just 100% haha

Re: Every Mustang Needs These!!!

Completely agree on the lowering..............but while I haven't driven and '11 I didn't like the shifters on th '05-'09....just the shape of it annoyed me in itself....thankfully mine has a Hurst...I'll have to go drive an '11 and settle this dispute with myself...

Re: Every Mustang Needs These!!!

I like my gt the hieght is is because it has 20"wheels and low profile tires and the chin spoiler scrapes the ground up and down driveways as it is.

To each there own, I have nineteens and I am thinking about going with a smaller wheel. I just dont get the 20+ inch wheel thing, the only car I drove with rims that large felt like it messed up some of the handling aspects of the car....

The only complaint I have with the 11 shifter is at times ill miss third gear, not so much any more now that I am used to it. The shifter I hated the msot was the 00-04 shifters, omg annoying! But thats my two cents again!

Re: Every Mustang Needs These!!!

Actually all any mustang needs is an open road and time to kill!!!!!!

But I have to agree with Topless and Lalayla, I don't understand why they don't give the car a more aggressive sound stock. Out of just about all american v8s the Mustang is the most docile sounding. It makes absolutely no sense! Also it needs suspension even though the 10 with the track package and 11 is decent....needs a drop!
