Your First Mod's

  1. 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!
     
  2. nitrous til the warranty is up then a turbo kit.
     
  3. No clue. Fuzzy dice maybe.
     
  4. rims since the 18s wont be available right away, hopefully 03 cobras will fit
     
  5. I think most people will go Rims, exhaust ,pulleys, Springs,Cold air or maybe even a Hood.

    can't wait to see
     
  6. new grille, getting rid of the 2 middle lights. new rims if the stock ones suck.

    then performance mods..
     
  7. 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.
     
  8. Either bore it out and stroke it or put a supercharger on it first. Then I would put long tubes, glasspacks, and suspension upgrades.....
     
  9. Wait for a special edition, or maybe the SVT, that already has performance upgrades, then baby it and keep it stock. :D
     
  10. wheres the fun in that....................................j/k
     
  11. 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.
     
  12. ez... first mods for any performance oriented true stangers is gears and a K&N!... then a whole long list follows... I already have a Nitrous Oxide system waiting to be installed... ;)
     
  13. 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.

    Hax
     
  14. Build a ducktail spoiler and mach 1 style chin. Tinted windows, shifter, and maybe try building a hood.
     
  15. For starters:
    1. Dark window tint
    2. 18" or 19" X 9" SSR GT3 Satin wheels (on Mineral Gray Stang)
    3. K & N air filter
    4. Magnaflow exhaust
    5. 4.10 gears
    6. Kenwood Excelon head unit
    7. MB Quart mids/tweets
    8. JL Audio subs
    9. Phoenix Gold amps
    :nice:
     
  16. I hope you are doing the isntallation yourself...would hate to have circuit city, best buy or wherever, cut into my new stang....I don't trust those shops worth a damn for a new Mustang!
     
  17. Probably wait for the first blower to come out. First catback, gears, throttle body. Then wait it out.
     
  18. 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:
     
  19. I dunno, the delphi/shaker/mach 500, will be plenty powerful for me....for now anyway...!
