Oh that is a tease!! Looks very nice; can't wait to see high quality pics when they're ready.
As for the torque on the wheel studs, you get two figures from Ford.
2006 Mustang Owner's Guide (p. 176): 100 lb-ft.
2006 Mustang Workshop Manual (p. 204-04-1): 98 lb-ft.
If you're worried about 2 lb-ft, you're a nut (pun intended). Most torque wrenches have anywhere from +/-2% to +/-4% accuracy anyway.
I should also clarify my "order" for the PF01s. I don't have an order in direct from Enkei, I have an order in with my wheel shop. They have multiple sets coming in, and I have dibs on the first four. So once their stock runs out then we're looking at putting in a call to Enkei if the need arises (which one hopes does not). I'm assuming the same is true for many shops around the country. They'll have stock on hand until they all sell, and we'll see what time-frame that puts us in for the next batch to be shipped out to US shops.
Very cool! The black-on-black is just plain mean (like that "Mustang-cop-thingy-from-the-Transformers" mean, really mean!).
Also looks like they give you about as much caliper clearance as the OEM Bullitts...
As for appearance, I'd humbly offer three recommendations...
1. Smoked front turn signal lenses (to complete the black theme)
2. Lower the car (yours looks like a stock ride-height)
3. Front chin spoiler
At any rate, the car is looking good, and I'm glad all the worries over the RPF1s were laid to rest.
Yeah I was a little paranoid there for a while and I'm glad things seem to have worked OK especially the centercaps. Snapped right in, no hassles at all. BTW I have to say Brian @ Goodwin - good vendor IMO. Would buy from him again.
I keep having people tell me to lower my car but I've got reservations about it. I drive my car a LOT and the roads here are terrible. It's no garage queen. It sees 4-6000 miles a year on bumpy crappy roads. I don't want to have to avoid speed bumps all the time. And also, if I lower it the right way entails more than just sticking springs on there. Pinion angle could be off at that point and I might need relocation brackets welded in there too. One thing leads to another and if I go down that road it's not going to be simply a set of springs and then done.
