Default New Guy From Denver

Names Tyler, and like the title says I'm from Denver Colorado. I found your site by doing a quick Google search, this was the first site to come up, so here I am!

To be honest, I know relatively nothing about mustangs, as I've been partial to Chevy's my whole life. (Please don't bash too much) any who, Iím here looking for info, I'm currently in the market for a new car. I can't lie, I was dead set on getting a new Camaro, but after driving one and pricing one out with all the options, Iím starting to rethink my decision. So, I hit up the ford website, and saw that you can build a price a 2013 Mustang GT. Well I fell in LOVE with the Deep Impact Blue color offered on the 2013 model. So much so, I'm considering buying a Ford (who'd a thunk?!?) That and the fact my wife LOVES mustangs doesnít hurt either.

So here I am, I know the basics, it's got the Coyote 5.0, live rear axel, stock vs. stock it IS faster then a 5th gen Camaro... but that covers it really.

Now for some quick questions:
1 - What changes have been made between the 2012 model year and the 13?
2 - To add the track package or not?
3 - Simple and cheep go fast mods (to start out with)

I'm sure I'll come up with more as this thread continues. Thanks for reading!

I would check out the Tech Section, but the front fascia is different on the 13.

Welcome to the forum.. aka the darkside (coming from Chevy's)

I'm not sure what all the differences are other than the front and rear appearance.
