I can't LOL

Most issues are known if you do your research.

Some issues are being worked on right now.

No problem with eibach suspension package.

Its a very nice package and not a bad price. I may have to change out the spring when I start hitting the drag strip with the car but I still need to weld my axle tube's and instal gear's.

Are you referring to the issues I stated. I can't really say.

I can say

You will need a Panhard bar and LCA and relocation bracket. You will not have traction unless you baby your car. AJB UCA I recommend as the rear end felt solid after instal. and you can set your pinion angle which will help with traction and Bering life.

No I was just saying that Kenny brown parts are overkill on a street car most (if not all) Kenny brown parts are made with rod or spherical ends. They're excellent for racing but way too much for a dd

You can't say because you don't know or you can't say because you don't want to throw any manufacturer under the bus?

Also your statement about the UCA is 100% true, HUGE difference IMO

My questions are will I be in total shock when comes to handling or pleasantly surprised? I realized when i made the choice I would be giving up some creature comforts and handling for awesome power but i am wondering if anyone else has made a similar switch. Also I still haven't seen a red candy metallic mustang around here and the pictures seem to be so differing. Has anyone seen the color in person and does it look awesome??? My car isn't even here yet and I'm already driving my wife crazy, but I just can't wait to get it in and start the modding!!!!!
I'm with you on this BigP0314. I just ordered my car April 15th. I just heard today that it will start the build process next week. I have been planning my mods (suspension, wheels, exhaust, shifter) for months now and the wait is killing meā€¦lol. I can't wait to get started.

Congrats on your new ride!

This is part of the research process. If you have ever done a long research paper for a degree you should know that an integral part of research is "Interviewing" or in this case asking for advice from people who have first hand experience. I will not just take one person's word for it but take all of the information gathered through reviews, advice, good and bad experiences of others as well what I am looking to accomplish and combine that to come up with best possible solution to fit my needs/wants. If I were to just research the parts without asking for opinions I would be basing my choice on what company had the best sales pitch.... With that said, if you have any HELPFUL input feel free to let me know

But once again that engine and look won me over especially considering I have wanted one since I was a kid
Just got rid of an Accord V6 coupe for a Gt Prem CS. I miss the interior storage compartments but that's it.
GT seats are very comfortable .. Although I recommend the pedal extender for the clutch. Makes a big difference .
There's no substitute for cubic inches and that 420 horses bone stock.
