Pumped to be a Mustang owner again!
 
It has been 7 years since I had my supercharged 06 mustang gt.

Last night I pulled the trigger on a 2012 gt premium with 16.5k miles, 6sp with slp loudmouth exhaust. THIS car, this engine, is just pure joy. It feels great to be in a Mustang again.

I feel like I stole this car @ $24,500. 400+ hp for under 25k just blows my mind.

Thanks for letting me post.

Congrats!!! The 5.0 is an awesome engine, no doubt about it.

Enjoy your new ride and post up some pics so we all can see it.

Sounds like a good deal! And welcome back!

The stock '12 should be putting down about 360-370 RWHP. A good custom tune has yielded an additional 30-40 RWHP on the 5.0.

Here's a couple pics of the recent purchase. I haven't had this much fun in a car in a long time.

The front end suspension lift on acceleration is crazy. This is normal for these cars right?

Congrats! Yep, front end lift and rear end squat is the norm when you got this much power! Wait til you get a tune, if you haven't done so already.

yes its normal stock, its pretty funny though how much it rises and dives but it really feels sloppy to me.

high quality springs and adjustable dampers will fix that if you want to upgrade -or an adjustable damping and height coilover kit would be great too and make it a much better handling car, flatter cornering, braking, and accellerating, and look better too.

Congrats and welcome back!

Nice looking car. Congrats on rejoining the fun people. Adjustable shocks really cut down on the sloppy feeling of the car. Well spent money IMO.
