Please don't do those ricey projectors American Muscle has. If you want HIDs, retrofit some projectors into the stock housing. Please.

I'd do coil-overs, a chin spoiler, grill delete, wide wheels and fat tires, get some tint, and call it a day for appearance mods. Maybe a rear spoiler delete or a '03/'04 cobra spoiler.

NIce Nice thanks for all the tips! Its an auto, to answer an earlier question. I was thinking about lowering it but my drive way drops at the end so i think id end up scraping the bumpers, im still looking into that though. Is the light bar really worth it? My GT looks like Bpohlman13 except hes worked on his appearance, its looking good bruh! Im from philly and the weathers been *** lately so im waiting for a nice day to take some quality pics and ill post them

That depends on if it has the Mach460 sound system.

Ford was brain dead when they designed that. The factory front lower door speakers are 8ohm speakers hooked up in parallel to a 4 ohm amp so you can't just install standard car speakers. Regular 4ohm car speakers will "eventually" ruin the stock amp. Every professional car stereo place I have contacted said its best to rewire the car if you plan on redoing the stereo.

Now, if you just want to relpace the head-unit.. no problem. Plug and play

There are others more knowledgeable than I however.
