    mods list! everyone name your mods, and how you like them. i'll start :) i have a true dual exhaust system with divorced pipes coming from m2 headers, and factory cats with gt take off mufflers out the back, its the cheapest system by far, and it sounds ok. its really "spitty" at idle.. which i don't like. and its only really loud enough at WOT... but im afraid of going louder for fear of it sounding ricey, can anyone relate?? i also have GT sways underneath, and a C&L intake and 93 BAMA race tune. the gt sways are a must!! it handles alot better, and them teamed with a strut brace make it even better. slap on some 18's, louvers, and sequentials and you've got my ride :) what are you guys/gals running for bolt ons?

    He is not a member yet but my brother has an 05 Mustang, Ortiz Performance prototype CAI, Ortiz Performance 87 tune, and true dual exhaust with bassani mufflers. Sounds VERY deep! Overall, the power gain from just those mods really woke the car up.

    I have ford racing T-Lok, 4.10 gears, BBK CAI, Diablosport Trinity with BAMA 93 Race Tune. I just recently swapped my V6 front fascia for a GT front fascia, and added a black billet grille with offset tri-bar pony emblem.

    I think he pulls the hood off. Props to him because you never really see many 4.0s modded out tastefully.
