The Mustang is a sports coupe and not a luxury car. As such, the seat is designed with driver feedback in mind. For the OP the 2014's may only be 'less' uncomfortable than the 2008.

My understanding is that you can run the HT0s in an N/A car BUT you have to re-gap to stock (.045?) which may be problematic because of the solid bridge. The only issue I'm aware of is that the...
