Would love if you could put some more pics up, I'm debating on basically the same setup. How much lower is the bumper that original? It's very close getting in and out of my driveway as it is.

Fan of - the hood, the blower, the color and the tail-lights.
Not a fan of (in any way) - front bumper (its overplayed and doesn't match the rear of the car), and the tailpipes.

01 cobra bumper would have been perfect. Congrats on the car coming along.

^ i tried to find a 01 cobra bumper, I would rather have that but they are going for stupid high prices for broken ones and I stole this bumper (had fogs, bezels, and was already painted black and I got it for $250) so I got this.

And the rear is a work in progress, I want to get some wide rims and change the rear bumper (thinking a 03-04 but get mustang from my bumper put into the cobra one) and the spoiler I am up in the air on. I love the saleen spoiler but I like the way the car looks spoilerless with the wide rims.

And I know the tail pipes have to go lol, they were put on by the dealer from the PO and I havent changed them yet because I like the way the exhaust sounds. I need to get new tail pipes tho.

and the front end is close to stock height, maybe 1-2" lower, i didnt measure before and after

I bought the bumper back in march, and the fit is pretty good. I bought it used from someone but it had just had a fresh repaint.

The fitment would of been perfect if one of the tabs on the passengers side wasnt broken, the drivers side fits like a glove

Hows your car coming along solider?

Looks mean with the Cervini's hood and Termi bumper! I love those rolling shots taken from another cars mirrors. It makes your Mustang looks sinister for sure!

Keep modding it man, it's tuning out wicked!

^ agreed if you cut the inner pipes they'd be much better looking. Car looks good tho man! I'd keep it spoilerless, I was on and off about if I liked my saleen spoiler or not. Somedays I loved it somedays I thought it was way out of place. IMO a nice set of wheels and cut those inner tail pipes and it'd look awesome!

I'll sell you those 2010 Rims I had on my SN95 Cheap, they'd look good on that car.

Yeah its a borla, i like the way they sound but I hate the double tips. Do you have any pictures?

No joke I have pulled the cat back off 3 different time to cut the inner tips off n i always decided not to because I thought it would like too big of a pipe

N CT, I think I will keep it spoilerless, like I said I love the way it looks with no spoiler and wide tires.

Keep the spoiler off. With a set of deep dishes in these, it will pull the whole car together

found a good one. You can actually see the inner pipes. I cut off like 4" I think and then later on I took spray paint and sprayed inside the pipes. You cant see the inner pipes anymore like you can in this pic

this is more so what it looks like
