Well I saw primer2tones build thread and figured it may be a good idea to start my own. I have quite a few mods on my own car and have helped at least half a dozen other people work on their own (I've installed every single part on my car myself) so I believe I may have some good knowledge to share. I'll start with a mod list as well as near future mods and as time permits I will take pics and upload them as well as possibly try to provide instruction. I just purchased LT's this morning (finally after talking about them since I joined the forum 15 months ago lol) and instead of just taking about my long tube install I figured I'll put everything in here.

Current mod list

Drivetrain:

-Boss IM
-Steeda CAI
-Offroad x pipe (soon to be replaced with stainless power long tubes and offroad x)
-FRPP sport axlebacks (borla stype)
-91 octane BBR tune (I run 93 gas but I use a 91 tune to be safe... especially with this tuner lol)
-MGW shifter with classic black shift knob
-DSS aluminum 1 piece driveshaft
-JLT billet catch can
-3.73 gears

Suspension:

-Steeda STB
-Koni STR.T shock and struts with GT500 "C" strut mounts
-FRPP P-springs
-UPR UCA and mount
-UPR billet LCA
-BMR LCA relocation brackets
-Steeda adjustable panhard rod

Wheel/tires/brakes

Front: Forgestar CF5 in matter black 19x9 with BFG KDW2's 275/35r19
-Brembo 4 piston caliper GT500 take offs with slotted front rotors

Rear: Forgestar CF5 in matte black19x10 with Michelin PSS 305/30r19

Exterior/Cosmetic:
-Saleen Grille
-GT/CS/Boss 302 front fascia with fog lights
-Gloss black "5.0" badges
-GT500 spoiler
-Shorty billet antenna
-Grabber Blue with black coil covers

This is not a comprehensive list, this is just all the stuff I remember off the top of my head lol. I will add more parts as I remember, so stay tuned!

Brembo caliper, they are a lot bigger than they look. It's about as long as my forearm, and I'm 6'1" with a 75" arm span

Well as far as bolt-ons there really isn't anything else I can do aside from a TB, but in the future... the distant future I'd like to go with a roush TVS. Maybe I'll do a little wheel whoring too if I get bored with the ones I have lol

They look so much better like that!! I saw it on YouTube installed on a 2014 GT, your car is coming along great!! From that build list u have I bet u never imagined u would do so much in 2 years... I know I couldn't have imagined it for me... I spent over 10k on mods so far, before this car, I never had a car that was worth over 10k... The mod big bit me HARD, I'm now working beyond my physical limits to mod mine !!

As of this morning I have a potentially huge present coming to myself... But unfortunately I'll probably be piecing it together for the next year... Only time will tell.

Gears are 3.73's, never been on a dyno and I'm not a good enough driver for relevant track times lol, but I'll tell ya anyways.

Best 1/8th 7.4 at 90
Best 1/4 13.2 at 114

I've also always raced on street tires, and haven't been to the track with half the mods I have now

Did you order one of those mail order brides from Russia? I told you when you buy them piece by piece they don't reassemble well and they'll be nothing like advertised.

Did I miss it? What LT's are you going with?

They apparently don't make them with an H. I was telling him to switch to an H instead of X earlier and he said no.

Yeah, I wanted to go with the Borla LT's but I couldn't find an H pipe with them either so I guess I'm gonna have to Frankenstein something together. I've heard that the X pipe is what makes that raspy sound and I'm trying to avoid that at all cost!
