    Whats up guys, I'm new to the forums. I have a 2004 V6 Mustang, I don't have any performance mods done to it yet. I have started and am nearly complete with my exterior mods. I have a set of Anthricite Bullitt wheels comin my way in about a month. Right now I am planning on adding a CAI, 373 gears, posi t-loc, T-body, exhaust (possibly a pro-chamber H-pipe) dumped over the axle with flowmaster 40s. that is my short term goals for performance. The only things I want to add to the exterior is tinted windows, fog lights, GT side scoops, and a rocker stripe. Let me know what you think, I am also posting pix too.

    Welcome to the site.

    Your car looks very clean from the pics. Looks like you're really headed in the right dirrection with your modding.

    Keep us updated as you put on more mods. Don't be a stranger around here. :)

    I'm loving it. Great package you're putting together there. I have to mention how much I like the appearance stuff you've done, especially the black btwn the taillights and on the bottom of the bumper.

    Manual right?

    really, I have heard it both ways. i have heard that 410s are good for autos, but i have a friend who has 373s and he says those are good as well. would i get more power from 410s?

    more torque.

    This is a good question for the drivetrain section. :) It kind of depends on your end goals. Welcome!

    ..back on topic.

    A useful free appearance mod I would suggest is cutting the bars out of your fog light holes. You would think it wouldn't look good but it really does.

    yes! take the bars out.....looks very clean, and you have to buzz em off for fogs anyway


    sounds like the perfect plan...just need some different audio maybe, then again I'm probly the only erpson around here who doesnt have factory mach audio...so nevermind haha

    Yeh, I don't have mach 460 either, would be nice though...I was waiting to cut the bars out until i got fog lights. I may go ahead and do that though. should I just use a razor blade or what?

    I'd use a dremel tool if you have one.

    I used a dremel, it was just a good excuse to play with power tools

    Well, I took out the bars today! It looks good, just need some fogs to put in there!! I have another question though... What does everyone think about a hood stripe, to go under the scoop? I have been back and forth about it, and I want your opinions. It would have to be in flat black to make the rest of the decals on my car...

    I think it would look great on your car. I'd really only do black matte which is probably what you're thinking. I'd do it. :D

    Hood stripes look good. Do it. My buddy has a GT hood and a stripe and it looks good.

    Heres mine, reverse scoop in gloss black:
