Car mods?

I can really only get appearance mods right now, because my parents don't want any warranties voided. Here is what I'm thinking of getting at some point(going for a blackout theme) for my Red candy GT:
Black Ford Racing rims
Ford Racing GT500 exhaust, or Ford Racing sport exhaust
MMD Window louvers( not sure of getting either body color, or black)
A black 5.0 or GT gas cap
RTR or Shelby black stripes
and an RTR rear spoiler.

Does the exhaust void the warranty?

Catback should be fine and is better than an axleback.

I don't have a lot of money, so I'll probably get an axle back

Since you were writing a post anyway why not just tell him? He's just trying to help which is probably what you do not deserve.
Well anyway YouTube is the best answer for exhaust opinions, everyone is different and has different tastes.

Honestly ive heard a lot of exhausts and the one that sounds the nicest by FAR is the Borla S-Type
Its tamed at low RPMs but when you get on the gas its really loud specially with some LT headers !! But then again thats my taste you can check it out on youtube there this white 5.0 and that one is closest to the real sound of it in person
Its a great video i watch it all the time haha
Goodluck on your final choice though the ones you named are pretty good too but that Borla is just addicting haha

I don't usually like buying parts from EBay, you don't truly know what condition it's in. Out of the 2 I listed, which would be better?

I did look into the pypes exhaust, sounds a bit too loud, I tend to get headaches kinda easily.

Ok, any other appearance suggestions, I'm trying to go for all black mods, because to me, black on a dark red mustang( or most cars) look great. And is there a way to get exhaust tips black?

How do you think they paint engines black and also withstand heat lol? Heat resistant paint. Comes In a few colours, and black is readily available. Another option is to just order black exhaust tips to fit on your mufflers. The roush cat back, for instance, can have its tips swapped easily: provided you find tips with the same diameter.

Ok, I'd probably order black FR gt500 tips, instead of painting them

You can plasti dip the tips and it will be fine. I did my GT500s so that you couldnt see the silver cans from the rear. You could also look up some Youtube videos on doing VHT. Spray them and wet sand.

Another thing I would like to get is the Ford Racing GT strut bar, looks good, and tightens handling.
