Default My 'Stang issue

Someone said that the shift was bad for tall guys...VERY TRUE! Anyway, I am waiting for my New floor pans, clutch, short throw (Hurst) w/long shift stick, new weather stripping. This should be done by next friday. Next step is newer cold air, throttle body, and O2 sensors. What else should I look into for a car that is just street driven, but learning towards agressive sound and appearance.

I have plans for new MAC exhaust from the headers back, newer cold air intake with MAF, new O2 sensors and MAC under drive pulleys. When I do the pulleys, should I get a new Dampener? Also have questions about Performance Chips; best kind? what they do? benefits?

Why is everyone complaining about the ashtray door?
Such a simple fix!

So I have this rattle that sounds like a heat shield. It's only in mid to high RPMs and when the RPMs fall when coming to a stop. The niose isnt as loud as it used to be due to resent work. Could it be my transmission? (Stock 5spd, just put in a new Ram Clucth with the works). Any help would be great

No the trans wouldn't make that sound. Get underneath the car and look at everything. Report back.
