Any idea what you are looking for in a drop?

Also for future plans, maybe try some side scoops, I'm not much of a fan on the quarter window louvers personally. But maybe go for more performance after it's lowered.

As for the tune change for new wheels and tires, the "Adjust Options" selection is before you select custom tune I believe. But you can just tell Bama, assuming that is who you went with, they will send you a new tune.
I'm thinking around 1.5".

Now about adjusting for those new wheels. What you want to do is reload your Bama Street tune or Race or ect. Once you select one of the three tunes the very next page that comes up has "additional options" on it. Select that and scroll down to revs per mile and you can adjust the tire size.

Suspension wise I would check out our New SR Springs that are coming in late June. They're a quality product for a killer deal compared to other manufactures. These SR Springs will give your Stang a 1.5" drop front and back for a sick stance. You can already preorder them on our AM site actually. Check it out!

Let me know if there's anything else I can help with. And more importantly enjoy all the new mods!

Thanks! I tried to return it to stock and then reloaded the custom tune, thinking it would come up then, but nothing. I'll try your suggestion in the morning. I'll look into the springs, but I don't know anything about suspension. People keep telling me to go with coilovers, but I don't know the difference.

20" wheels. 245/35 up front and 275/35 in the rear.

Yeah, I get that all the time. In anything other than direct sunlight it's black. In direct sunlight, the red metallic is very obvious. Sometimes it's even a weird brownish color. It's an awesome color, but I keep getting people telling me it looks purple in pics.

I forgot to ask last night, but I've heard that you guys are working on some '13 taillights that will fit our cars. Is there any truth to this?

That we are! Raxiom should have them ready for us by late August. I'm just as excited as everyone else to get these in. Keep hanging in there!

Also Mighty, how did you make out with the tuner this morning?

That's great news. It's going to be a long wait though.

I tried uploading the custom tune again and never got that option. The only option it gave me was to force the download or cancel.
