  1. Who are you?
    Where are you?
    05 or 06?

    Since I am asking the question, I will answer first.


    Tyler. I am 30. I am married with 1 child and 1 on the way. I have been in telecommunications since 1993. I do not own a S-197 Mustang. I drive a 2001 Lincoln LS daily and my toys are a 1965 Fastback and a 1989 5.0 LX.

    Mods on the Lincoln are as follows.
    KKM cold air intake
    Magnaflo cat back

    Mods on the 65 are too many to list.
    Full suspension
    Lots of engine goodies

    Planned mods are even harder to list :D

  5. Robert's Jezebel

    Robert, 32, Divorced, no children, but was given custody of one cat. :rolleyes:

    I am a Staff Sergeant in the Marine Corps stationed at HQMC in Arlingon, VA. I go to George Mason Law School at night and will graduate in 2008 or 2009, depending on when I get out of the Corps and can go to school full-time.

    I have a 2006 Windveil Blue w/ Pony Package with all the bells and whistles. I call her Jezebel, but NOT after the practice wife! My ex is a great lady, but she would have thoroughly disapproved of my new car! :D So I have to enjoy being single while I can!! And in 2009, a new Cobra, Challenger, or Camaro (if they get it right) will keep my Jezebel company. A SC V6 and some bonafide American Muscle!

    • 12" Lemans Stripes
    • Roush Quarter Louvers
    • JBA Muffler
    • MMR CAI w/High Flow Tube
    • SCT XCAL2 w/87 Octane Tune
    • Detroit TrueTrac
    • Ford Racing 3.73 Gears
    • Girdle

    Short-Term Mods:

    • MAC Long Tube Headers
    • Mac Prochamber w/ High Flow Cats
    • MAC Catback Exhaust w/ 4" Slashcut Tips
    • 93 Octane Tune

    Long term Mods:

    • X-Charger w/ 6 psi boost
    • Forged Pistons (if I go to 9 psi)
    • Upgraded Heads/Valves/Seals/Cams (if I go to 9 psi)

    Man, I love that car! I want one with the fog lights that inspired the Pony Package so that I can paint them the same. The one I saw with the fogs was a 66. You must LOVE that car! How does she drive, or should I go to the Classic car forum and ask these questions?

  7. Hey there... I'm Hamid. 32 and married about 2 1/2 years. No kids... just a pearled cockatiel, a bearded dragon, two Texas ornate box turtles and some fishies. I'm in Portland, Oregon. I'm a licensed massage therapist, musician and songwriter (guitar, sitar and hand percussion), recording engineer and poet.

    I've owned three cars in my driving lifetime and two of them have been Mustangs. My first was a candy apple red '68 coupe with a black vinyl top and a ragin' inline 6. She wasn't fast, but she sure was purty. She also broke down every other weekend.

    Both my parents passed away near the end of 2004. After my mom died, my dad suggested we go down to the classic car dealer, pick up a 65 convertible and go on a road trip. He knew he wasn't going to be around much longer and wanted to pass it on to me. I had clients that day and we never went. He died a few weeks later. Exactly one month after he died, I took home my auto redfire 05. He's ridin' with me in spirit and smilin' ear to ear.

    I haven't been excited about driving a car since that old '68. The 05 brings back all of those wonderful, nostalgic feelings. Doesn't matter what year ya drive... a Mustang is always something more than just a car.

    This is also the first time I've done any mods to a car... I am hooked!

    Mods so far:
    JBA titanium finish, ceramic coated cat4ward headers
    JBA duals (y-pipe)
    C&L intake
    Bamachips tuned SCT X-cal 2 (currently running the 91 torque tune)
    American Racing Casino Chrome wheels
    Pirelli P-zero nero tires (235/55/17's)

    The next step:
    Ford Racing 3.73 gears and t-lok

    Possible mod:
    Switch out the y-pipe for an h-pipe

  8. My name is Travis, father of two (girl/boy)and 30 years old. I am in the Public saftey industry.

    I am an owner or almost (98 dollars till pay off)2000 Mustang.

    I have every bolt on imagineable and then some not thought of plus the addition of Nitrous.

    The best she has run on a 75 shot was 14.1 @98 mph. I am currently working on a radio delete mod for the sat radio installing while the interior is out a RPM window switch, the FPSS and electronic TPS.
     
  9. I do enjoy driving it when I do.

    The suspension is very stiff. It drives like a dump truck and goes around corners like a go-cart.

    More to come... I sure... LOL
     
  11. Todd from Sterling VA (right outside of DC), 32 years old, will be 33 this feb. I'm a VP for Information Technology for a global PR firm. Love the work!!! Wife calls me a work aholic! In additon to IT and Stangs, I enjoy practicing martial arts, collecting wine, playing blues harmonica (and collecting blues music) and world travel.

    Pets: Dog, Huge ass malamute, 2 cats and my sons bearded dragon (named shelby, son digs mustangs!)

    Married for 8 years, have two kids, both boys, 11 (adopted from wifes previous relationship) and a 2 year old. Both are my 1st priority, 2nd priority is the Stang, Priory 1.5 is bribing my wife with jewlery, truck, house upgrades, etc to get mods for the stang. I think wife figured out she is priority 3 and indirectly 1.5, now she lobbies to put items in 1.5. LOL.

    I have a 2005 Mustang V6, previous stang was a sock 93 LX 5.0 Vert. Mods are listed on my signature. Following those, I will be doing the following:

    • MAC Prochamber
    • SC or TC, must decide soon (bonus check is comming! Any suggestions?)
    • T-Top or Sunroof (really love the look of a ttop and I know i will get crap for this LOL)
    • LCA's
    • Steeda Strut Tower Brace
    • Steeda Lowering Springs
    • Center mounted fog lights
    • New rims/tires (DR's)

    • New TB (when it comes available)
    • Chrome engine bay dress up caps, bolts, etc.
    • Mud flaps
    • Any suggestions?

  14. Sunroof and T-Top I can live with... I actually like T-Tops.. And that new CDC Glassback would be awesome... If they ever release it! LOL!

    • Magnaflow axle-back
    • SCT-2 from BamaChips
    • Zex, bottle heater, remote bottle opener, purge
    • GT grill

    Future mods:

    • X-Charger or PH turbo
    My previous car was a '92 Mustang LX 5.0. I bought it new and was in the process of doing a resto-mod to it when some idiot totalled it. I took the money and used it as the down payment on my '05. As much as I loved the '92, I love the '05 even more. My Mustang buddies give me crap about getting a V6 but they won't race me. :owned:
     
  16. Oh damn you didn't!!! How did you know which ones I wanted. LOL.
     

  17. NICE! So have narrowed it down to a Xcharger or PH turbo? Interesting.
     
  18. Thanks!!!!

    First $100K takes it :D :SNSign:
     
  19. I know, they are completely different. I've pretty much ruled out the centrifugal superchargers. I love the idea of the low end power of the X-Charger, plus the apparent ease of install...plus I think it will look cool, lol. The turbo I like because if you don't drive it hard on a daily basis, the turbo won't kick in much. But the power will definitely be there when you need it. It makes more power than anything else out there and it would be easy to adjust the boost from 6, 9 or 12PSI. There's more to it but basically I like them both for different reasons. It's going to be a tough choice.
     
  20. Yea, after talking with Robert I'm wondering if I should go with 6psi first, especially since I plan on a 55hp shot of n20. I hate playing the waiting game when I have the money to do this. Oh well.
