Default RE: What's Your Mod List (See what others are doing)

Ok, deep breath..... 2000 V6

Motor/Drive train: 4.2L fully forged short block, Crower cam, custom heads (by me), warmed over valve train,ported stock lower intake (by me), custom boxed upper intake (by me), ported Eaton M112, Cobra TB (port matched), ported inlet, 2.8" UPR blower pulley, 60 lb injectors, SVT fuel pump, custom fuel rail (by me), Lightning MAF, custom street legal exhaust running into Spin tech 333SCS mufflers (kicked out the sides), Ron Davis Aluminum radiator, Optima battery, A/C delete, Ram clutch, Tremec World Class T5 tranny, Roush Classic shifter, Eaton 7.5" rear end with FRPP 3.73 gears.

Suspension: Springs: 1050lb/inch fronts and650 lb/in rears (somewhere between 3 1/2 and 4" drop), Bilstein shocks/struts (Roush spec),Roush front sway bar, GT rear sway bar, Roush control arms, full array of Energy Suspension poly, Steeda X2 ball joints, Flaming River steering, Roush 13" slotted/cross drilled rotors at all four corners, Roush front calipers, hawk pads, SS lines

Wheels/tires:
Roush Argents 18x9 front, 18x10 rear
265/35 BGF KD fronts, 295/35 BGF drags rear (drag strip) 295/35 BFG KD (road course)
'93 SVT- R 17" wheels for 'harder' track days with 275/40 Kumho 710s all the way around.

Outside: Roush Stage 1 aeropackage (Splitter, side skirts, rear skirts, 3 post wing), All Roush badging, Y2K Cobra R 2 1/2" cowl hood with functional heat extraction, '03 black head light housings

Inside: Roush carbon fiber trim, Roush floor mats, Roush Racing pedals, Roush badging, Autometer A pillar with boost and fuel pressure, Cobreau CR1 seats (bright blue) and harnesses (black), Sparco harness bar (full cage waiting to go in), rear seat delete, stereo delete, removed all "dead weight" (insulation, extra wires etc....), empty trunk with basic carpet for looks JACK ROUSH AUTOGRAPHED DASH

Plans: Cage waiting to go in, reworking full suspension this Spring, KB twin screw, two tone paint.

EDIT: I've had people comment that I say the seats are Corbeau CR1s, but in the pic with Jack signing the dash they are Forza seats from Corbeau. (Good eye to all who caught it.) This car has seen many changes over the years. I've run stock leather, both black and blue Forzas, '03 Cobras, '01 Cobras and am now running the blue CR1s in the car - and that's just the seats.Along with those changes it's hadthree sets of wheels on it, four suspension set ups, three hoods, four exhaust systems, two stereo set ups (prior to gutting it),four motors, two different power addersand a host of other junk that I decided against later on.

Pros: This thing outhandles almost anything I run it against. Lacks the power, but brakes and corners like a champ - which is usally the area of the track I can catch the other cars. Side exhaust is something I'd never go with out now. It cleans up the rear so well when doing suspension work. It is a great track car, and also made a good daily driver (which is why I bought it in the first place).

Cons: Not exactly a good daily driver any more. But I wouldn't trade it for anything. Wish I could make more power down lower in the RPM band. (Hense the KB unit going on.)

Default RE: What's Your Mod List (See what others are doing)

its not going to be much..... 2002 V6 5 Speedblack

Interior :
-Alpine CD player, amazing sound quality def recommend, makes the stock speakers sound alot better
-Pioneer Speakers, i would go with Boston Acoustics if i were to buyaftermarket onesagain

Exterior:
-232 badges -- autobadges.com ROCKS fast shipping and amazing customer service
let me say that again.....autobadges.com is the BEST in the buisiness
-silver 'mustang' back bumper inserts, i would get the metel ones if i were to buy them again

Performance:
- MAC cold air intake- looks good, i didnt pay for it, so it makes it even better! the rubber fittings are starting to crack, dont know if any other brand has better rubber seals.
- SPEC Stage 1 clutch- AMAZING learning experience putting it in myself, i would say go for it instead of paying somebody to do it, if you have a shop you can work at, or even have the right tools at your house. the clutch feels better than stock, grabbs alot harder and feelsmore crisp. but i would go stage 2 if i would have known how 'light' the pedal was going to feel, it feels lighter than stock. id like the stiffer pedal and more agressive feel of a stage 2 or 3 even if my car didnt have the power to need the stiffer clutch.
-MAC cat back. i would NOT pay somebody 350 bucks to put this system in again, i got totally ripped off, i would buy mufflers and have a shop custom make a midpipe and bend some duals for me, the macs sound good but i dont think they would sound good without cats. but just for a bolt on with the y... i have had many MANY compliments on the look and sound of it, and the duals look amazing with the tips, they are level with the ground, and ive seen some V6's with tips that point down, and i think that looks horrible. -STEEDA firewall adjuster, i love it, i can adjust where the friction point is on the travel of the clutch pedal. a PITA to install since you have to cut the old firewall plastic piece out, (a dremmel helps) but it was worth it.
-Brakes, do NOT get metal brake pads, i got em and HATE having to clean my wheels twice a day... go ceramic. im bout to buy ceramic just so i dont have to deal with it anymore. it sucks because i just spent 50 bucks on the other ones.

My greatest piece of advice, from this whole car experience that i have had, is attempt to do the work yourself, ask questions, ask so many questions that people get annoyed, just so you fully understand what to do. and try and do everything yourself, the things you will learn, and the confidence you will have after you do it, it feels so good to know that every part you put on your car, was done by you, and it works, you know the work was done right, so theres my little rant, ask people who know what they are talking about and get the hands and arms a little greasy!!!!!!

-Mp3 PlayerCable Hook-up
-4 Pioneer 3 Way 220W Speakers
-2 Infinity Tweeters
-2 12" Alpine Type R's
-2 12" Sony Explod's R.I.P.

Pros: I had no problems whatsoever with my ebay intake I bought from K2 Motors. It fit fine, and works just like every other intake. Its lost its luster slightly, but nothing big at all. The H&R springs were my best mod in my opinion along with the steeda short throw. The springs in combination with the blisten shocks and struts make this baby handle like a charm and the ride is very smooth and nice.Also removing the cats was the best move I could have made sound wise, minus the slight high pitch in the upper rpms.

Cons: The SCT performance chip fryed as soon as I did another mod to my car. Every time you "mess" with your car, it must be taken out and re-programmed for it to work good. Also the Sony Explod's were complete crap. They lived up to their name and exploded about a month or so after I have gotten them installed in a custom box for them to fit my trunk. Also the pulley is very hard to tell the difference for me from the stock pulley excpect at higher rpms in the later gears, I do feel more pull for sure.

Default RE: What's Your Mod List (See what others are doing)

1998 3.8L 5sp - Green

Not too many mods as of now, will update as time goes by.


Engine
-65mm Throttle Body
-K&N Intake
-Underdrive Pulleys

Suspension
-Eibach Lowering springs (being shipped as we speak)

Exterior
-Multicolor L.E.D Foglights
-Multicolor L.E.D. underglow neon (Optix)
-Window decals - Bob White - "Mustang" on front window , Pony outline on rear window

Interior
-Green Neon lights all over the place

Audio
-Pioneer Super Tuner 3 head unit
-Pioneer 3 way 200 watt speakers (in doors, rear quarter panels, and on rear deck)
-312in MTX 7500 Subs

Notes
If you are wondering about all the neon lighting, I do my own custom wiring work. Please don't think of me as a riccer with wires all over the place. I will have to say it is a nice clean look :-)

Within the next month, I plan to get 3.73 gears, and a racing clutch (unsure of what brand yet)

Default RE: What's Your Mod List (See what others are doing)

Engine
ASP 25% UDP
K&N Filter w/silencer removed
SCT X-cal2 flash tuner programmed by Justin at vmptuning.com


Ignition
Screamin' demon coil pack
9mm Stangwires


Exhaust
GT Takeoffs w/o H-pipe

Drivetrain
Steeda tri-ax

Exterior
17" Bullitt rims OEM off an 03 GT
GT fog lights

Suspension
Mach 1 suspension package
600 lb/in Front Springs 250 lb/in Rear Springs
Tokico Shocks and Struts
MM subframe connectors
Mach 1 rear sway bar
Mach 1 front sway bar (waiting to be installed)

Pros - The suspension is awesome, the car actually handles likes a sports car now. Body roll is nearly gone, understeer has been taken care of, and body flex was taken care of by the subframe connectors. The tri-ax makes shifting fun again. UDP gives a little more pep and a little better fuel economy, although that could be me driving more responsibly who knows.

Cons - Ebay CAI sucks, I will be taking it off when I get time. I will probably go with a K&N filter with silencer removed. (Done and much better)

Now that the suspension is done I need to save up for some real performance mods.
