Default Upgraded

I decided it was time for an upgrade so recently traded my Redfire '07 GT for a Ruby Red '15 Roush Stage 3.

Here she is on the second day (and of course, we had a rare cloudy day in New Mexico):


Alongside the '07:


And next to my boss's '69 Mach One:


I'm going to switch to the Roush hood heat extractors as I'm not a fan of the stock ones (it looks ok from outside, but with the hood scoop it makes it look unbalanced from inside as you can't see the passenger side vent).

Nice upgrade.
Base GT & base Stage 3 package ?
Does Roush provide a dyno sheet, I know SA doesn't for their SS conversions.

Premium GT with voice controlled nav and Recaro seats (oh how I wish they were heated and cooled, but oh well), with Stage 3 package plus most of the options (basically everything except the front parking assist). No, sadly Roush don't provide a dyno sheet.

I gave it a wash and a wax this weekend and got the rear window louvers installed. I finally managed to get some pics in the sunshine:





On a cloudy day, Ruby Red looks pretty close to Redfire, but in the sunshine, it really does pop.

Thanks guys, I'm loving it, it's for more "balanced" than I would have expected, it'll leave your eyeballs behind if you ask it to, but is very well behaved if you just want to get from A to B. I wish the Recaro seats were heated/cooled, but I can live without that and that is my only, very minor, complaint.
