    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.

    Build a ducktail spoiler and mach 1 style chin. Tinted windows, shifter, and maybe try building a hood.

    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:
