New shelby owner!

New to the forums. I just made an account with gt500 and here. Are these all the forums everybody uses?

My car is a 2008 Shelby GT500 with the BBK intake, 2.8 pulley, magnaflow exhaust, SCT tune, and I just bought the 5.0 pro shifter off of a guy local (still got to install it)

Don't waste your time on that pro 5.0, not worth the time it takes to install. Get an mgw shifter, best on the market.

Tc is correct on the shifter. I have the ford racing shifter and I like it but it only replaces the upper part of the shifter, as do most. The MGW will actually replace the internal parts as well.

Welcome to ME. There are some gear and knowledgable people on here.

There is a thread on here called, "what mods have u done to your Shelby" check it out for some great ideas for mods.

If u have any questions, don't hesitate to post them up!

The ford racing shifter I imagine is gonna be a whole lot easier to install as u r only swapping out the top end.
