My 2010 Black 4.6L Mustang GT from Italy
HI everybody!!
Here's my stang, 2010 GT Premium, bought 2 years ago in Hyannis, MA
I live in northern Italy, 20 miles away from Aviano NATO base (many americans here) that's why american cars passion grew in me since i was a child, and it's also quite easy to get parts and service, which in Europe is not that simple, not to say impossible. But passion goes through this! And i tell you more, it's a family thing, my fathers owns a Escalade (you can see a bit of it in one photo).. i know i know, it's GM. He got better in it than in a Expedition.

The specs :

-Appearance package
-Park distance sensors (fundamental here, where you got only tiny stripes on the streets to put your ride, stucked between awful cans.. ehm.. cars right)
-GPL system (i know it's something horrible, but otherwise it's quite impossible to afford mileage with so high gas prices, today was 1.8 for a liter, which means 2,30$ for 0,26gal.. yeah, damn expensive) it's only a matter of extra weight and extra cables all around the hood, performance are not affected if correctly tuned, and i can ride with same mileage but only for 0,89$ for 0,26gal and i can still ride with my stang and make shake everything i meet on the road.
-SYNC system
-Shaker 1000 audiosystem

Here's the mods list :

-Added side markers just on the top of GT badge and modified tail-lights, just to comply stupid euro laws, and a lot of other adaptations, took me 1 year long battle with at local agency to get the damn plates.. .. ..
-CAI from Steeda
-91oct tune (consider that here you'll find 91octane gas as standard one)
-170 degrees thermostat
-jlt oil catch can
-Long tube headers by JBA
-Catted H-Pipe by JBA (yeah, x-pipe sounds like normal hi-perf euro cars, i bought a stang to have the gurgling deep and low tone)
-Ford racing axlebacks FR500SA (in my opinion, the best you can buy! absolutely drone-free and hellish when WOT)
-Hood struts
-Carbon look wrapped trims on the dash

here's some photos..

ps.. sorry for my english, i know it's not that good :icon_rolleyes:

Great car, thanks for sharing. Time to lower it and tint the tails.

Nice car. I don't think that your english is all that bad. I meet many Americans every single day who can not speak it nearly as well as you can.

Alan, I think I figured out what your car needs. One of those hood scoops! It seems to add a more aggressive look to the front end.

Welcome to the forum!

I really do like the hood scoop on manuel's car. I may have to consider it.

took three looooong weeks but finally today these pretty little (not that much) things came to my house!
i took 1\2 day off this thursday for installing them, can't wait to hear the rumble and to mount the roush brake pads and the steeda short shifter (you can see them in little) !!

Welcome from Atlanta. Looking good. Thanks for all the pics. You might need a re-tune after installing the exhaust system...Not sure.

manuel86it 01-25-2012 02:23 AM
