Her name is Kate
 
Took the plunge today guys and bought a Coyote. Couldn't find a track pack or recaros anywhere nearby and I didn't feel comfortable ordering the car without test driving one with those options first. Found a very nice 14 GT Premium in Ruby Red Metallic (400A I believe) w/ black interior, 3.73, the pedestal spoiler, and the 19" black and silver shoes. Had 12 miles on her before the test drive. Manual. She's beautiful and I feel like I am 16 with my first love again. The coyote rumble might be better than certain adult acts. And I got her for a steal.

I am very happy with the car. It has so much power I literally feel no desire for engine mods whatsoever. Seriously- compared to my old 09 V6 its an absolute monster with 2x the power. The car really commands respect from the driver in the sense that I could floor the old pony and she's gain speed respectably but nothing too dramatic. I know that flooring the coyote is taking my life in my own hands. That said, a MGW and some axlebacks are probs in the future. Throws are too long and the car is too quiet.

I know, I know, I will upload pics tomorrow.

After a few months you will want more! Fact:) but that's not a bad thing

Rudolph Hucker 07-27-2014 12:42 AM

maybe he wont..
i want no more power from my 4.6
some folks just want a cool car that looks good and sounds good...
nice one dude i bet it's 1000 000 times a better car than the 09?
my 10 was a huge improvement over my 05..i still love the car with a passion..cant see i will ever change it tbh

stags 07-27-2014 01:03 AM

I loved my 09 with all my heart, and believe it or not I actually prefer much of the styling on the 05-09 cars. The front end of the 14 looksa little better, but IMO the tail of the 09's was perfect. The only thing i'd take from the 14s tail is the lights. But I liked the square rear rather than the rounded.

Where the 14 really blows the 09 out of the water is power and the interior. I loved the 09, but I always felt as if parts of the interior were cheap and tacky due to the excessive use of plastic- notably the dash. The interior of the 14 is not perfect but its much more refined and uses higher quality materials, giving the interior feel of cars costing tens of thousands of dollars more.

Given I made the transition from the V6 to the V8, but the power is unbelievable. My Dad is a mustang buff too and he has an 08 Saleen S281 SC, and that car is a veritable monster. But if I had to choose between the supercharged 4.6 and the NA 5.0, I would still go for the 5.0. My experience with the 4.0 and 4.6 was that they both felt as if they are under strain constantly. The Coyote is a big powerful engine and even at 5000 RPM the sensation- to me- me is a big, comfy engine. It doesn't strain whatsoever. I am not knocking the 4.0 or the 4.6 in any way- I owned a 4.0 and loved it. The Coyote just feels "Comfortable" if that makes any sense.

Fact: Last week I drove an Aston V12 Vantage coupe. Given the choice between the two cars, assuming price was not a factor, I would still take the Coyote every day.

808muscle 07-27-2014 02:13 AM

Congrats dude. The new 5.0s are amazing. Bring on those pics.

really?
must be a great car this 5.0

the 4.0 is ok but should never had been put in a muscle car...i'de never own another v6 mustang EVER

UPRSharad 07-27-2014 08:28 AM

There's no doubt that the 2014 5.0 is a great machine. In my opinion, a few well chosen mods can greatly improve it with a minimal investment. Tire upgrades (when the time comes), UPR Lower Control Arms, Shocks and springs, etc.

cruisin5268d 07-27-2014 01:25 PM

Congrats on your new Pony.

Now you need to update your profile to show that you have that and not the V6.

sbradle4 07-27-2014 03:20 PM

Congratulations! Never say never on the mods. I thought that about my 2010. Bought it January 2012, had new axlebacks on it by April, haha. Now I continue to tastefully mod it here and there.

kevinmalec 07-28-2014 10:42 AM

Congrats on your 5.0!
I wasn't keen with the looks of the 2010 - 2012 body style, however I do like the looks of the 2013/2014 body style. =)
Make sure to post some pics!

Sorry for poor quality iphone pics.

A few questions-

1. Who can tell me how to get the damn dealer emblem off?
2. Was the strut tower brace stock in 2014 or was that an extra goodie?
3. I also have the Track App function in the display... I was under impression that was only available on Track Pack cars???

I'll post some better pics after we get some proper model shots this weekend.

Well, you don't pull off the dealer lot until they take it off. Simple. I always make it clear to them up front that if they put a sticker on a) I'm driving off without buying it or 2) I expect compensation from them for advertising

stags 07-28-2014 07:33 PM

^^ Valid. But of little use now.

Googone. Always works for me. Open the trunk so it stays vertical, and just work the edge of the sticker up a bit and let the goo gone seep in, wait a couple of minutes and pull up a little more. Repeat until you get the whole decal off.

stags 07-28-2014 09:12 PM

I remember reading somewhere that using a blowdryer on a med high heat setting can soften the adhesive to accelerate the process and that some dental floss will cut through adhesive without ruining the paint. The googone method appeals to me and combining that with heat might work. All recommendations welcomed.

Lethaldosage423 07-28-2014 10:59 PM

You can wrap fishing line round it and pull it. Then goo gone.


Looks amazing! I love the red it really stands out
The strut tower brace is standard on the 13/14
Jealous of the track apps!

Enjoy. I'd avoid roush axle backs, mine are a little loud and raspy. I'm looking into replacing them. Just a tip

stags 07-28-2014 11:08 PM

Yeah I heard that in the vids. My question is were they loud enough to hear in the cabin with windows up and some music going? Just wondering if comparable size exhaust can be heard in the cabin. I can barely hear stock with any music whatsoever.

GTjoe49 07-29-2014 07:41 AM

Very nice Mustang! Treat her well and she'll be kind in return.

Everyone gets burned with the dealer sticker once, lesson learned...

Best of luck with your new ride.

It's supprisingly quiet on the inside for how loud it is outside. They don't drone on the freeway. It sounds really good from the inside of the car.
These new mustangs are way more soundproof than the 05-09 ones.
You can hear it but you can drown it out with music if you want to
