Default NEW from your Nations Capitol

NEW MEMBER HERE. Im new to car stuff and I Just bought a SuperCharged 96 GT Stang. The guy said it makes about 400HP but it hasnt been Dinoed or tuned... I guess thats my first question cuz I dont really know what that means. The accelerator is already pretty fast so I think im just gonna do like chrome rims and stuff to make it look cool. I love the way Mustangs look with all the european stuff and stickers. When I get home today im gonna try and replace some of the fluids using online tutorial videos. I read a post here that said I should flush the engine with water after i drain the oil? Should i put some soap or detergent in it? I would think that would help clean it. I was thinkin i would turn the car on with the water in it also to get all the moving parts clean. Reply soon please i want to do this when i get off work today!

-I hope my car ignorance doesnt upset anyone.

You go running water in your engine and your screen name will make a whole lot of sense.
