Default New Texas Stang Owner

Hey guys, I have been on here for a few weeks and love the forum. This is my first Stang, but this is my fourth vehicle. When I was 16 I had a lifted 1984 Ford Bronco (351W). At 18 I had a lifted Grand Cherokee (5.2L). At 22 I got a 3.5 Nissan with lots of Nismo goodies. Now I am a Stang owner. I have always modified my vehicles and prefer to do the work myself when I have the right tools available. I have always been big on using and contributing to forums, as a do-it-yourselfer I canít imagine a better resource.
I graduated college a year ago and this is my daily driver, so my mods will take that into consideration. My goal though, is to have a sweet garage, a mediocre truck for daily driving, and one day get to build a sweet machine for autocross. Until then, here are my plans for this Stang.
I am ordering the FRRP stinger axle back exhaust this week, (and Iím also trying to reach 50 posts on this forum for an AM discount code so I apologize for my activity). SCT Tuner, FRRP or STEEDA CAI are next for Christmas. I also want the Rousch 9 bar grille with my foglights mounted behind the grille. I am also contemplating dropping nitrous in there for the occasional adrenaline rush (although I havenít researched this yet for Mustangs). Iím sure many more mods to come..
Anyways, I hope to contribute on this forum and look forward to healthy debates!

Welcome, and nice looking stang. Good luck with the mods and enjoy.

P.S. I woke up to -7' this morning and pics like that make me think about moving.

HAHA, when I read posts on here about snow tires and how much sand to put in the trunk I can't help but be thankful to live in the South!

Thanks! I too am starving for mods! lol, as soon as I reach fifty posts I'm ordering my exhaust with an AM discount code. Trying not to be obnoxious by over-posting.

I definitely will! I have seen your thread on here already and there are several things I want. I will be adding HID's to the headlights and fogs (My Nissan had Xenon HID's and I really really miss them!) and I will also add some LED interior lights. AFTER.. a few performance mods.
