Be careful, big yellow whales handle very well when suspension gets fully modded better than many would believe, I am starting to love my big black whale.

Ummmm! I was talking about handling, these cars are a total turn around once you get the stock crappy bushings and suspension off of them. I still don't get why they handle so well even at 3900lbs. Now I know why the Nissan Skyline gets so much glory for handling regardless of weight. Not to offend you but they really are sick once the suspension is modified, and I had a 2007 GT with no options and race type suspension, (No not Griggs Racing, I wish). It corners better than the 2007 GT, no joke, if only it weight less, my GOD.

No problem I love Mustangs as well I am no hater that's why I am still here, plus the last time I checked , Mustangs were just under BMW in the points in Grand Am racing. Boss 302 are still the Sh&%%$##t. Maybe I'll get one next, I'll slip the salesman a mickey and make him sell it for less, here in Massachusetts they are going for $65,000 . Ouch.

What weight reduction have you done to hit 3200 lbs? That's fox body weight.

I dunno about that... I thought the same thing once and my girl noticed the second I uploaded a race tune lol! She was like "why does this sound and feel more pissed off than normal?"

I think the 4.6 to 5.0 sound difference alone would be a giveaway lol

I wonder if it's possible to get the premium GT with cloth interior instead of leather?

The 2011 GT CS I almost bought sounded just like my 2007 GT with magnaflow axelbacks. When you do headers from say Stainless Works and cat back exhaust however , things change.

Yes Indeed. I can't wait! I ordered Kona Metallic Blue Premium GT with 3.73 gears. It'll be a fine addition to the family. Turns out I qualify for X-plan so I got the car $250 over invoice. Not bad at all.
