Yep, And youtube will be a good resource for you. There are TONS of exhaust options out there for these cars. Listen to sound clips on you tube of different combinations on there and find one you like. Literally the world is your oyster here. FYI: I have a magnaflow catted X pipe with borla stinger catbacks. Idle isnt that loud but give it some throttle.....itll shake pictures off my neighbors wall...

Hmm on an 04 gt convertible... like everyone else said Mach 1 lip grille delete fresh smoked headlights and the rollbar/lightbar/styling bar makes the verts looks so much more aggressive and id leave the spoiler since its convertible looks too smooth without one... as for the back vinyl just go to Lowes and buy the spray can of plasti dip. It's like 5 bucks and works like a champ. Oh and if yoy don't like it you can just Peel it back off. As for the sound, if its stock and o/r midpipe and aftermarket mufflers will give you the growl you want. I did 15% precut tint from eBay for $20 and it looks amazing.

I think it makes them look like a more manly car and not like some chicks convertible. Just my .02 I really didn't want a convertible until I found this one which was almost completely stock and unmolested

Welcome, and good luck with the stereo install.. I just ripped everything out that Ford had installed for the mach 460 and soldered everything else in. Look into a metra harness if you don't wanna do all that though.

Your car looks good.

THUNDER VALLEY!!! Sweet. I've been flown in by corp sponsors in NASCAR to watch the race (otherside of the stripe) & did a RP exp around the fastest 1/2 mi track. Haven't been able to get out on the strip there yet. How was it?

I have the Magnaflow O/R X and Borla Stingers. A very good sounding exhaust set up. You can keep it on the quiet side if you pu$$y foot it, but give it some of your right boot, and it will wake the freaking dead.

But if you want REALLY loud, an O/R X and some LM1's. I personally don't care for the sound of the LM1, but it pretty loud. Although, never heard a throaty V8 that didn't sound amazing. Its a V8. Youtube is a good starting point. AmericanMuscle.com even has exhaust clips. Check'em out...

^^^This is exactly what I've done since I got mine, minus the staggered set up, which will be in the next 3 weeks, and plus I put new headlights in.

If your worried about gas mpg, you can still add exhaust, underdrive pullies and a tune. From what i understand, those would only increase your mpg's.

Honestly, everyone is gonna tell you almost the same thing look-wise as far as grilles, chin spoilers etc go. It's your car so do what you think looks right, but grille deletes, Mach 1 chin spoiler look badass and definitely make the car stand out some more.

Personally I'd do said mods above, throw some tint on it, tinted lights etc and wheels. I'm from Philly also so I can reccomend some good tint places in the area if you wanted.

Also, I'd say do looks first...because I did performance first and still can't stop modding whenever i get a few extra bucks and now can't afford to do anything else look wise lmao.
