Car just hit 1,000 miles! Time for parts!

3 months old and 1,000 miles later I have now ordered some crap for her!

I went with the Eibach Sportline lowering springs and a BMR adjustable panhard bar to start things off...

Once she is squatting better I'll be ordering an off road x or h pipe (haven't made up my mind yet) and the gt500 axleback...
And a tuner

We shall see how things go...

I have kinda been babying it though just for the heck of it.

I've basically babied it, but I haven't touched a highway so I think that's why mines slightly low. But you best believe when this engine is broken in, my mpg will be approximately 7. 😂😂😂

QUESTION: for this panhard bar that I got, am I gonna have to have someone weld the thing on or does it come with bolt on brackets or how the heck do you install these things?

I'm getting used to those "look at this spoiled kid" looks as I pass by people in my college town. I need a bumper sticker that says 'not paid for with daddy's money'.

Ok thanks. I got the BMR... I have no clue which one it is. Guess I'll just have to wing it when it comes in.

Anyone have any suggestions for an H-pipe???
I plan to get the GT500 axle back exhaust...

I'm leaning more towards an H pipe instead of an X pipe due to raspy and the H having a deeper tone to it.......

Off Road catless of course...

Right right right now I'm leaning towards the Pypes one or Lethal Performance...

Any suggestions?

I had the Lethal Performance one and it fit perfect and sounded good with my Kooks catback.

I am soo bummed out lately as I continue to search for a decent H pipe. ....

I've read every frikken review and it seems like every single pipe has freakin issues!!!!!!!

Ball and socket leaks...
Exhaust tips stick out...
C clamp this and c clamp that...

Jeeze. Can't a company learn from a mistake and make a better product???

My only 2 complaints with the lethal one is that 1. Nobody has written reviews on it (although 2 people on this thread have now recommended it)... and 2. They charge you $120 more for the same grade of 304 stainless steel as pypes sends you in their pipe!

What's up with that?

I just bought my 2014 GT 28 days ago and just earlier tonight hit 1000 miles -- one of those moments in life! Lol. And as a couple of you in this thread, parents didn't buy it for me either -- worked my *** off to get this babe.

As for parts, I've got the Boss 302 Rear Diffuser + Roush axle-back currently on their way! Cannot wait to put these on.

Got easy and cheap access to a dyno (gotta love being buddies with a shop owner)
So it'll be a custom tune however he feels things should be...
Bought the SCT X4 tuner.
