    Here's a pic of my 1998 Ford Mustang GT...

    Mods worthy of note:
    • 2001 Ford 4.6L performance improved heads and cams
    • Ford Motorsport 3.73:1 rear gears
    • Dallas Mustang SpeedCal electronic speedometer calibration unit
    • TransGo shift improvement kit -- valve body rebuild
    • Bassani Quiet Thunder exhaust -- no resonators in tailpipes
    • Bassani catalytic X-pipe
    • Kenny Brown subframe connectors
    • Ford "Bullitt" suspension kit -- struts, shocks and springs
    • Pro3 Industries Street / Race lower control arms
    • Pro3 Industries stainless steel brake lines
    • Performance Friction brake pads -- all four corners
    • Obligatory K&N air filter and modified air silencer assembly
    • One or two other insignificant little things that make it go faster :big grin:
    Appearance tweaks:
    • Ford Motorsport 1999 Cobra SVT wheels (17x8) with GT centercaps
    • Kumho ECSTA Supra tires (245/45R17)
    • Tinted windows -- maximum legal, State of Tennessee
    • Rear bumper letter inserts -- black vinyl
    • 2003 Mach1 edition automatic pedal covers (aluminum with rubber grips)
    • Vanity license plate (for grins and giggles)

    This is my daily driver and sees very little real track time. I play on the street whenever the opportunity presents itself but that usually means just defending the car's honor against whatever assmonkey pulls along side expecting an easy kill.

    For some reason it always seems to attract the aggressions of chimped-out Honda Civics with lowgrade (or non-existent) performance modifications, fellow Mustang owners (WTF?) and irate soccer moms who are too busy talking on their cell phones and putting on their mascara to pay attention to where they're piloting their damn Exxon Valdez land yaughts.

    Thanks! :)

    I'm not real thrilled with the AODE part of it myself but I have managed to make it fairly quick in lieu of that handicap. Actually, the coolest thing about it is that there's never a missed shift no matter how tense the racing might be.

    Anyway, plans are to replace the AODE with a Tremec 3550 sometime in the near future and go back to rowing the gears. I miss that.
