$2,000 well spent!!!

Well I bought BBK ceramic longtube headers with off road x pipe and black pypebomb axle back exhaust from brenspeed and bought the black s197 Saleen 7 spoke wheels and tire package from American muscle today I'm kinda mad at myself but its what I've wanted for awhile now so hopefully its money well spent!!!

Thanks, I was hoping I wasn't the only one thinking I got a deal, I have a Saleen supercharger in my 2010 so I'm not just a jerk buying Saleen style wheels with no goods to back it up LOL

Ugh, I've got about 2k worth of parts that I want. The money's in the bank but I'm procrastinating on pulling the trigger and seeing that money disappear. It'll happen soon enough.

I know how that is where the money just sits there and you want something but don't want to do it because some emergency might happen and you need it and your now 2K has a tracking number....ha ha I've been their for sure and that's what I'm doing now and hoping nothing major happens anytime soon.

Thanks, I usually try to buy the best I can for my car, I was talking forever about getting pypes LT's but they were on back order or I would have got them but Chandler at brenspeed told me the BBK ceramic headers would be the same horsepower and a different sound but still mean with the pypebomb axle backs. I just dyno'd my car 3 days ago and got awesome numbers now full exhaust, what that's just crazy LOL

Re: $2,000 well spent!!!

I missed the exhaust on my Cobra so much that I had to do full exhaust on the 07. This is the car that pretty much inspired me and when I got done with the exhaust it sounded just like the one in the video. Still love that combo.
Only difference is I had full kooks exhaust.

What's funny is I didn't plan on getting them until this morning pretty much an impulse buy, I wanted them but wanted the Saleen ones but for 1,600 I could handle that on my budget, but yeah I was just searching and they were on top of the page and I was like how much and saw the wheel and tire package was in range along with the tpms sensors installed I was like I must have them LOL

I wanted to go with 18x9 all around just because I have 20" Boss wheels on now and I'm worried ill blow a tire and my spare will be useless and then this way I can rotate tires and with the way I drive I could save some money and plus I have racestar drags for the track so good to go!!!

Those look awesome! But maybe some Saleen Hubcaps? I think they'd look even better with something kinda breaking them up.

I'm just wondering do my wheels look ok cause I've got mixed opinions on it and I know its the same thing that if I like it who cares what other people think but the two people that say they don't like them are a audi driver and dodge challenger driver, they said I should sell them and get something different but just want to know what everyone else thinks that actually like mustangs?

Dude i am buying those rims because of how they look on yours. I have the same car and didnt the way those rims set the black off made my decision! Screw the haters, tell audi he is just driving a pre-madonna VW and dodge might as well be on the water cuz challengers are boats!

I love those wheels. I think they may look better in 20's like the transformers police cars had. I've always been considering these but I like the wheels I have now too much.
