I'm new to the 5.0 family too. Traded in my 2012 V6 for a 2016 GT Premium. Best decision I ever made. It's amazing!

Out with the old, in with the new!

I don't know anyone who owns a Ferrari but if they did I would ask them if they track it if the cars design to be used as a track car.

I don't know anyone with mil spec riffles to ask if they shoot them. I never said don't buy a mustang. I was just curious as to why people were buying certain upgrades meaning suspension and braking systems that are designed for track use if someone does plan on track racing.

Curiosity! That's all. I was just trying to look at ones point of view in paying for upgraded performance parts and never using them for what they are designed for.

I hear people ask me why don't you put Brembo brakes on my car. I'm like why? My braking system works just fine. It stops my car just fine.

I'm cool with people buying what ever they want I just like to understand why people choose what they choose. I have never upgraded any performance part on my mustang that I didn't use or have purpose for just to say I have it.



Just a near stock 3.7

Why are you putting lca's on v6. Seems like a waste.

Lol I was close. That's why you had wheel hop. Wider tires would have cured it. I had 295-35-20 on a v6 with similar mods and 3.73 gears and I never had wheel hop.

The whole axle behaves better with the poly bushings over the stock soft rubber. Same with upgrading to a poly bushing panhard. Everything is more stable and solid. The added traction is a bonus.

I have no regrets installing my aftermarket lower control arms

It's a waste on a car that has no business having one. A stable suspension for what? Dodging deers and getting groceries?

Good point sir. What type of mustang should have a stable suspension? Does the amout of cylinders a vehicle have determine the suspension set up?

So I just finished selling off all of my 3.7 parts. The 1 item that kept coming up every time I met up with a 3.7 person was "I REALLY like this car. I can't wait to get a GT." Then they would go on and ask me stuff about it and what I thought.

Very nice feeling to go from the person who always stared at 5.0s and kept wishing - to being a guy with a 5.0 and now being able to share my experience with the newer Mustang guys w/ 3.7s about my journey with my own 3.7 and my new 5.0.

I do get consistently from other Mustang owners - they always like this color "Guard Metallic". I am actually surprised at how much people really like it.
