Just tell your parents it helps your gas mileage... I was 15 when I got my first stang and that was my excuse for everything. Headers, better gas mileage. Pulleys, better gas mileage. Manifold, better gas mileage, etc lol

do the mechanical work first, then the body then the interrior...nothing is worse than dropping a wrench on new paint...or getting overspray on the interrior
yeah I figured I'd do all the prep this winter fix dents replace sheetmetal and fix the interior. then worry about paint and engine work this spring when I'll have more money.

well things are looking better. my mom who has a 99 GT wants my rims. So I might be able to trade her even over, she buys the car I give her my rims, my sixer will look like **** with my stock rims, but if I need to kick someones *** I'll have a 5.0 in the garage right? well thats how I see it. Plus it'd be cool to have three generations of stangs at our house.

in all honesty, it is a VERY little power increase, and pulleys cost me 2 altornators, a wiring loom, 3 batterys and a water pump.
