Upgrading to a 5.0

So im leaving the 4.6 world and joining with the 5.0s. Actually it will be a few month before i upgrade but im lookinh into buying a 2011 or 2012. Im going to take of the cia of my 3v and change it back to stock. I will just use my x4 bama tune on my 5.0. The power difference is gonna be crazy.

Hopefully he goes with White or Lava Red but there is no wrong color.

Lava looks good but it behaves like a black car. Swirls, easily scratched. Plus people want more because this is "rare"

White car FTW


Vote Ox Mustang of the Year 😬👍🏻

You do know you have to overwrite the tunes and make new ones for the 5.0?

Not that I've seen they don't. PP sells on other forums and dealers are in line with other colors.

But agree it would suck to keep clean. As much as I like the lava it's very hard to beat the white one imo...

Yeah. I would have to put my car back to stock tune and get new tunes for my 5.0 and buy the 150 membership lol. But its worth it. And i think white or black. White with some black rims.
