A little spring cleaning

So it was nice yesterday and I figured I'd give 'er a little cleaning and get a few pics before ordering the new wheels and tires for it. Gonna put some Downforce Graphite 20x10's and 275/35/20 Nitto 555's on it, just waiting to hear back from Phillip at LMR on the wait time for the TPMS sensors.

What else are you going to do to your car and is it auto or manual?

It's a manual.

End goal for this car is 600-650 hp at the tires. Gonna put a twin-screw on it, haven't decided on a 2.3 or. 2.9 yet, but 9-10 psi of boost is where it needs to be.

I'll probably drop it an inch, nothing drastic.

Otherwise, the main focus will be the rear suspension and getting it to act right; the wheel hop on a hard launch or aggressive shifting is ridiculous.....feels like it wants to shake the car apart. A lot of the stuff out right now is a band-aid for what is basically just a bunch of rubber bushings allowing too much movement in what should be a fixed structure. So, more than likely I'll end up dropping the rear subframe putting in the aluminum bushings and replacing the rest of the stamped and cast components with billet aluminum and poly bushings.

I'm sure I'll do some other crap to it, I generally don't leave anything alone for very long. But, for now it's my daily and I just have fun driving it like a rental.

For drag racing?

Thanks for the info. Are you planning to do road / track racing or drag racing or both along wth street daily driving? I am trying to decide whether to go manual or auto for my first Mustang and was wondering why you personally chose manual? I have read so many opinions for and against each transmission. Also trying to decide whether to get 2011-2014 or 2015?

All that's a personal choice. I don't road course race, I'm a straight line guy. But, this is my daily that might make an occassional hit.....I have plenty of other rides that are more dedicated to the track.
