Thanks. In the long run I don't think I will regret it either, but as most of you know it can be hard to let go of a car that you have put years of work into.

dude i prefer the gt500 when you bought it.the black on white looks awesome
Those were my thoughts on the cost of the SC. I had already put 15k+ into the GT and if I spent 5k on a SC the cars value would have stayed about the same and still been worth less a year later. Plus it still would have been making less power than a GT500.

And the stripes look good but were too flashy for me.

Thank you! So far I have done side scoops, tint, boomtube axlebacks, MGW Shifter, tinted tail lights, and LED Fog lights. Future plans are, Mcleod RXT clutch and flywheel, 2011+ mirrors, KR hood, pulley swap, 1 piece driveshaft, CAI/tune and a set of vossen wheels.

The car came with the stock wheels too and I am wanting to get away from 20's. I love the look of 20's and ran them on my GT, but with this car I'm wanting more bite out of the tires so I will stick with 18/19s even when I buy a set of aftermarket ones.

Thanks. Its a 2008 with 4200 miles on it. The only mods it came with were a K&N Filter, sequential tail lights, billet engine bay caps, and ford racing lowering springs in the rear. I have the fronts too but I'm thinking it looks pretty level right now and I might leave it with only the rears installed.
