One major difference, you are going to be doing a lot of shifting-the 3.7 has very little power under 3500 RPM. I notice it the most when I'm on the freeway and have to drop down a few gears in a...

Looks like Ford is making it harder and harder for us to upgrade the sound systems! This is strange, many people buy Mustangs because we love to make them better!

The heat is because you have a bad connection at the battery. If you clean your battery post and the inside of the connector-then tighten it down, it will not over heat. A battery post brush will do...

I'd go with the narrowest tires that will fit your rims, and the best tires you can afford on all 4 wheels. I can drive about 45 mph in 4 inches of snow with good control, worst trip was returning...

Thanks for the post!
Mine are wearing out and I was wondering how tough it would be to replace them. I have 63K miles on it, no one else has even opened the hood. This looks like a pretty easy task.
