Either can I!! Kooks exhaust systems are made to order, which I didn't know, so they wil be shipped as soon as they are manufactured. I still believe as do the tuners/installers, that the ride will be ready after our vacation.

I will be doing a full weekend of love with her though, pictures, detailing, and a video walk around with exhaust sounds and all!

Thanks for the congrats!

This forum was/is/will be a huge... huge... HUGE help! Not only that, but I am making a sizable purchase from American Muscle to get me THAT much closer to finalizing the project with new side scoops, spoiler, hash vinyl dual stripes, shortie antenna, and eventually the rest of the Cervinis C-300 body kit, and the ram air hood!

Well, as many of you share in my healthy obsession with all things Mustang, although I am on vacation, I can't stop thinking about my silvery beauty back home. I contacted the install shop and also added on a triple gauge cluster with boost, air/fuel, and rpms with shift light!!!

Also, I FINALLY DECIDED 101% on what hood I am buying to paint and install to REALLY set my California Special off... THE SUPER SNAKE HOOD, absolutely gorgeous with functional induction AND heat vent extractors! Check it out here: http://www.americanmuscle.com/trufib...hood-0509.html

Also, I decided to match my recently installed quarter louvers with the matching side scoops, which I WILL BE CALLING AMERICAN MUSCLE to see if I can simply pay and wait to have them prepped and painted in their warehouse: http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustan...coop-0509.html

Still up in the air about the front fendor vents... they would match perfectly and tie the side scoops into the car flawlessly.. buuuuuut, they look somewhat euro, and I want this thing to look clean, factory, and muscular!!! THOUGHT ON THESE GENTLEMEN? Here: http://www.americanmuscle.com/xenon-...coop-0509.html

PS: Someone asked for an updated picture of the GT with the 22's... here is one that will VERY SOON be severely outdated when the new hood, side scoops, shortie antenna, and a few other mods will be performed!

Hey Maximus,
Since you're in Vegas you HAVE to take the tour of the Shelby Museum and plant! You'll be able to see the awesomeness of the Kenne Bell there.

I'm here TDY and a group of us are doing it sometime this week.

A friend from back home just told me about this! I can't believe I never knew, it's my 7th year in Vegas. WE ARE GOING TUESDAY to the museum

PS: As far as updates, might not be any until Thursday or Friday when I pick the GT back up after our flight lands. But... what an update it will be!

PPS: I am just waiting to hear back from American Muscle on an email I wrote them with 4 questions before ordering, as SOON as I hear back, I am GETTING THE SUPER SNAKE HOOD and other goodies to come 90% of the way done with my Super Stang build!! *The only thing(s) I will have left at that point will be the Cervini C-300 front bumper and eventualluy read bumper and side skirts with side exhaust... then, aside from a little custom paint or vinyl work, I WILL BE DONE! $40,000 later

Welcome to the KB club.

Go to the hood and sell your 22s. Then get something worth a ****.

Plan on installing a clutch in a few months. Mcleod RST.

In regards to the fender scoops in the front, i would not get them those would take away from the look of your car and make it look cheap and dumb, i would suggest these and i also have been thinking of getting them as well

No way I'd part with the 22's, way too sharp and the compliments are unreal, plus... my car, hehe

I am getting the hood for sure, even paying extra to have racing striped painted, and no vinyl. If I have to buy a new beefy clutch after the winter, so be it, money is made to be spent!

I couldn't agree MORE! It would turn it from a super stang 500 horsepower show stopper, to something more akin to a 16 year old's first car with stickers and a bumble bee exhaust, hahaha!

I am sticking with the best of the best and NOT overdoing it. It's going to be a thing of poetry soon. Thanks!

PS: That link you pasted for me to check out shows a hood also sold on AM, but... what caught my eye was the Super Snake replica (Trufiber GTS-4) hood for $599, seems like a lot less than American Muscle sells the same hood for here: http://www.americanmuscle.com/trufib...hood-0509.html

Hmmmm......

The same exact hood is $674.99!?!?!?

might just be the price difference of buying directly from the company or from a vendor. Not sure why the difference though.

Does anyone know where I can get the matte vinyl Super Snake single stripe pre-cut forr the 2005-2009 GT? I am ordering the GT-500 Super Snake hood tonight from the hotel room on vacation

PS: ORDERED the Cervini Side Exhaust full system with skirts and all! Woooo.

-All I have left before Winter is a few small things now.
- NEVERMIND... just ordered high quality 8 year matte black 20'' single Super Snake stripe + matte black hash marks for the fender from Decal Shoppe online!

I can understand you like the 22"s. although I HATE that size wheel.
It leaves no room for good rubber.

If you are supercharging your car with such power as you say then you obviously want the best bang for your buck.

Those 22"s are going to SLOW your car down buddy.
It makes no sense really to spend that much cash making a monster
power car and just slowing it down because of some "BLING".

You NEED good rubber for that power my friend.
You REALLY need to go to a lower sized wheel.
The rubber will make your car look much more like a beast as well and not just like some bling bling guy.

Don't forget the Mustang is a muscle car and muscle is built to have rubber and LOOK like it has the rubber to smoke others.

Really man... you will be doing yourself a HUGE favor if you drop that wheel size.
At least go with some 19"s or 20"s.

I know it's your car and your right but come on man.. you aren't driving a donk.
You are driving a muscled-out Mustang. Give the car it's due.
Some 19"s or 20"s will at least give you SOME rubber to show.

22"s in my opinion also make the car look like it has bicycle wheels with little tires.
Like a ten speed or something hehe.

You won't regret dropping those 22"s for some smaller tires when all is set and done.
In fact you will thank yourself later.
Your car isn't a "pimp my ride".

Your car is a "blow the doors off your competitor" car!
Drop those 22"s and put some muscle rubber on it!
That much power NEEDS good rubber my friend!
