and to answer your other points, yes i'm 26 and no I don't drive like a jackass, especially in areas with kids, that's what a track is for.
I don't get why you care how much money I would want to put in my car. you outlined that by adding everything to my car would be Shelby money...yet it's not at the goal i'm trying to hit. I would then have to spend more money in the Shelby, therefore spending even more money than from my build on my 5.0
Really? This thread has become so ridiculous, I deleted my own posts. Once again...waste of time. Ford Racing forums have so much more realism to offer...anyways....
Ask a speed shop guy how worthy online forum advice is and see what he/she says..its hilarious. To be fair I have several guys that Ive met in these forums who ACTUALLY have the parts they are giving advice about, thats the only worthy online advice for me.
The shop I had install my Edelbrock is the preferred certified shop here in AZ. They gave advice on what ancillary parts to get and which ones that were just a waste of good money. Car performs almost flawless...its a rush.
You wrote "was looking to get a little insight on this subject, as i'm 100% new to it and don't want to be looking at things I don't need etc."
I suppose you can swap out every part in your car just cause someone else online did. At that point you no longer own a GT, its a rat rod. Fantastic advice for a newbie.
Dont be a mod yoda...go to a SPEED SHOP and talk to the manager. Be prepared to ask the right questions, have an end goal in mind and a hard budget number. End of story. Best advice ever, but then again it just makes too much sense here.
