I don't think that's the case. The other thread I saw on another forum, the car was factory ordered and the guy watched it come off the truck at his dealer. It wasn't a track pack, but it was a...

As for some of the noises and things you may not be used to, the whole point of a Mustang is the experience. There's the sound, the handling characteristics, the man/machine/road...

Window Louvres

Two questions about window louvres...

1. How do they obstruct the view? I know you don't see much out of the driver's side quarter window, but what about a right-side shoulder check?

You don't mention sway bars at all. I come from an import background, and the law of the land if your primary concern is handling is doing sway bars. At what point...

I disagree with the above. Up here, the law is 50% on the front door windows and 35% the rest of the way around. I've always tinted my cars and it DOES make a difference, especially if you're going...

Well, when I plug those numbers, it looks like the back tire will be .8" shorter than the front. Why not just go with a square stance 19x9.5 and 275/35 all the way around?

Let me know how it feels. I plan to do the whiteline Watt's link along with springs/struts but haven't made up my mind on swaybars either.

Yeah stainless lines are amazing, I guess I'm more curious whether the Boss lines are a situation of 90% of the performance for 60% of the price.
