Hey guys, kind of a long thread I guess but I have two questions maybe you guys can help me out with. I'll start with the more interesting one.
Alright so i've been driving a stick for about 6 months and I'm pretty good by now. Car salesman tells me some people like to leave their car in first gear AND keep the e-brake up for extra safety so the car wont roll. I've never done this I only use the e-brake but I figure whatever I'll try it. First day I buy this car I go to the gym for about an hour. Now you guys know those parking garage pillars? Yea you know where this is going....come back from the gym, since this is not a habit of mine I forget its in first gear, start the car, and my mustang lurches and slams into a pillar. First day I got the car.
Anyways I have full coverage but this might be a blessing in disguise. I just heard about cosmetic upgrades for mustangs from the 05 - 09 range to make em look like the newer ones. Since all of those parts need replacing anyways, do you guys think I should just go ahead and do the cosmetic upgrade?
And if im not mistaken the upgrade is actually even a little cheaper than the stock repair (for sure some other aftermarket parts are cheaper from AM, another option). Now this actually leads me into my 2nd question which is a lot shorter.
The 05 Gts have about 300 HP, the newer Gts have 400+ hp. So i have two options. Roush charge mine or buy a newer gt. I wont spell this out for you guys im sure you see where im going and I know there has been debate about this especially regarding the v6 upgrades (3.7 to 4.0). So tell me what you think? One important thing to remember is im a college student, I worked my @$$ off for this car working a minimum wage job 0 help from parents. So I can't really afford a roush supercharger yet and im thinking for now its easier to just upgrade to the newer GT and make payments. (Still making payments on mine but I can do a trade-in faster than I can do a $6500 supercharger with no payment option.)
Sorry for the long thread guys, anyways tgif and happy labor day weekend everyone. wherever youre going, drive fast (but safe lol)
