Newbie

Just to get acquainted I am the proud owner of a new 2012 Mustang GT CS.I've only put 500 miles on it as I am waiting for my performance specialist(Car Guys Garage in Brighton Mi.) to do my upgrades. Spent alot of time and research before I chose this outfit, and I think they will do an excellent job. Heres theset-up; Procharger Supercharger with air to air intercooler, Kooks Headers, Kooks x-pipes and Corsa Sport Over-the axle pipes and mufflers. My installer says that after the initial tuning, the Silver Ghost should be turning out about 650 HP.I'm 70 years old and want straight line performance so I opted for the 6-speed auto. My last 5.0 was an '89 with 225 HP and I thought that was fast. On this one maybe I need a restroom. Thanks for letting Evolution and we'll talk more after I get my Stang back.

Welcome to the forums! It sounds like you have one killer setup on the way! You might need a new driveshaft with that kind of power btw...
