    Alright guys, let's here em'. What are your first mod's going to be when you get the 05? I am thinking a set of Torq Thrust II wheels in chrome at all four corners. Upgrade the exhaust, K&N Filtercharger........

    Those will be my first mods.

    Can't wait!

    I wouldn't get one until they've been out for maybe 5 years. Then I'd tear the engine down and build it up with a TT kit.

    Either bore it out and stroke it or put a supercharger on it first. Then I would put long tubes, glasspacks, and suspension upgrades.....

    Wait for a special edition, or maybe the SVT, that already has performance upgrades, then baby it and keep it stock. :D

    Your right, modding is fun, but I'm going to try my best to resist this time around. I want to keep my next Mustang for a long time.

    First trip will be to the gear shop for a set of 4.10's, Next will be a Pro 5.0 shifter, next will be subframe connectors, next will be exhaust...if it's available. I would like to get some long tubes, an H-pipe, and a cat back, but I doubt that they will be on the market yet. After that, probably a cold air intake to smooth things out a bit.

    As for rims and tires, I think Edelbrock has a snappy looking rim in 18" that would look great, and some 275/40/R18's on the back and 245/40/R18's on the front...to go with that, some big cheese grater breaks and red calipers.

    Hopefully, that will get me solidly into the 13's and able to drive it daily.

    Probably wait for the first blower to come out. First catback, gears, throttle body. Then wait it out.

    That's a good point. Actually I always have it done. I don't have the time or patience. And, I haven't been impressed with any of the shops I've used on my last several cars.

    I'll be doing a lot of homework before leaving it with anyone. Maybe the stock stereo will be good enough to leave in.

    Nah....... I doubt it. :rolleyes:
