Wink Red stangs (how's your red beauty looking?)

This is my 2005 GT. It does not have lowering springs YET.
So far just has JLT cai, 91 tune, & pypes axlebacks.
Which hood scoop will go with this car???

BTW, i am putting up these pictures of my car so that if someone ever wants to change the look of their red pony they get something to fall back on. I KNOW I NEEDED it but couldnt really find what i was looking for anywhere so i used alot of photoshop

Next appearance mods will be hood sccop, halo/led projectors, splitters bigger tires, and springs.

Performance mods will be lt headers, (bbk or kooks) 3.73 gears and maybe an x pipe

NOW, let me see some of your red stangs and details! THANKS

Wow! The difference between wheels on your car is really cool.
Beautiful car I love all the blacked out accents.

Since I take it that this is the Torch show off thread I'll throw up a couple of mine.

I think you just convinced me to get mirror covers!
And yea the wheels make the personality of a car i think, chrome=flashy, luxury....black=aggresive, predator. Lol

That eleanor grill is real nice, but i love how my fogs shine at night thoo, its a win win situation. Good work thoo, real nice progress. Congrats.

Aero, thanks. and I got the grille from American Muscle, it was $170 or $180 with the tri-bar.

Dirty, yeah I almost went with the stock GT set up, but since I was doing the conversion I didn't want to look just like a GT so I figured I would go with an aftermarket grille.

Your car looks great, Eddie!
I saw that pic on FB where you could barely get you thumb in the wheel gap, pretty awesome.
Those rims and the aggressive chin really just set off your car.

Here's mine, has intake, tune, full exhaust and 4.10's for now. Getting a new hood soon as the paint on mine is bubbling.

Oh and for the OP, go with 4.10's, not 3.73's, you won't regret it.

Thank you Tanner! I am very satisfied with how the wheels/tires came out!!! I agree on the chin spoiler and wheels setting it off, the wheels put the icing on the cake lol.

Haha here are a couple more crappy pictures:

I love the 4.10's, I don't do a ton of highway driving but I like them more than the 3.55's on the highway because it keeps me out of my exhaust drone. Gas mileage is only a little lower when I just drive normal, but it's tough to not get on it with the gears haha
