The bigger question about the bigger throttle body is why? Unless you are going for a screaming NA build with a CJ manifold and built long block, you aren't really gaining anything from a bigger TB.

With you all the way there. I'd de-badge long before up-badging anything.

We used to leave the 307 badges on old Chevys for that reason. Suckering people in when you had a built 327 underhood or...

Look at your car from the back. You see tips and the ugly back plate of the mufflers. The Gt500s are stainless so, they don't need paint protection but I think it looks better just seeing the tips

I painted mine black (except for the tips) w. flat black BBQ paint because I hated seeing the steel end cap on the muffler body below the valance. Big improvement in looks, in my mind.

There is...

Nope, I paid 260 new for them a couple years ago and thought that was damn good. They were going for about 320 retail for the pair at the time, if you looked. :icon_download:

That's what it looks like. The ball in a ball joint is on the male end, in this case, on the over the axle pipes. GT500s and a stick car sound like the Bullitt soundtrack on low volume. It's...

If you can get genuine gt 500 axlebacks for 180 shipped, grab them then sound fantastic, aren't loud or obnoxious. The car should have come with them.

Make sure they are the right ones. The need...

Let's put it this way: I ran 11.91 at 115 through the stock airbox, filter and exhaust, on a fully loaded BBP GT, on the mildest tune out there (Procal 91). So, I don't think the factory CAI is a...

Yeah, true. The only thing the stock clutch doesn't like too much is elevated rev limits. The Paxton kit has a huge head unit, easily able to support 1000 horse. The Vortech I have caps out at about...

Vortech is also Carb legal, 50 states, fwiw. Tunes for emissions legal are pretty soft usually but Vortech makes 605 fly on their tune, claimed.

I'm definitely glad I went with GT500s now I am supercharged. I just turned the volume up to 11 and anything louder than the GTs would be too much. The FRPPs are like Borla Touring so, they are as...

Those are GT500 mufflers, I think. I paid $260 for a set a couple years back. They can be found retail for about $300, sorry to disappoint. They are a great sounding muffler though and a very...

I drive to the track on slicks all the time. I don't even air them up. It's no big deal. Be careful and avoid any road debris.

Slick for stick definitely. The hit to the driveline is way softer...

Meh, air them up and they aren't so bad. They'll last about a week though, given the compound.

This'll make you laugh: Last year, I exploded one of the factory Pirellis and had to order...

Pardon? It's the stiff sidewall/carcass of the drag radial that transfers more shock in a shorter period of time, straight to the driveline. The slicks more flexible carcass allows a longer and...

Not real keen on drag radial and a stick. I've used both Dr and slicks, multiple applications. Slicks are way easier on parts than radials. I even drive aired down bias slicks to the track, no...

Yeah I hear ya. To me, some rough-edged brutality is part of the embedded charm of a Mustang.

Gentle, gentle, gentle. the stud's torque value is incredibly low, too, giving an indication of how fragile they are: 8-10 lb/ft. This is 1/4" ratchet territory and care is still needed there.
