    Ive decided im done with going fast and want some luxury instead, the mustang is nice, but it rides like shit and doesnt have alot of comfort for all the time i spend in it. heres what ive done to it
    Replaced both fenders, both quarters, hatch, doors, hood, shaved the door handles, took the car completely apart and repainted it 1998 cougar med/dark melina blue which is a cross between dark blue and purple. Its got a cobra RR hood with the svo scoop. Its got hood pins, new tint job, 17 inch eagle alloy 203s i belive maybe 202s, i dont remember for sure. new as of april bridgestone potenza 215/45R17s, fronts still ahve the markings on them, the backs are at about 1/2 tread. Side exhaust, powerchip, removed air silence, advanced timing to 14degrees, flexalite electric fan, and the gears are 3.55s i think, new front brakes. Alright i think thats it. Motor has 123k on it and tranny has probably 20-30 on it with a shift it(AOD)

    You'd gain more power by getting rid of the side exhaust. They're super restrictive.

    well, the basic point of my side exhast was, i could do it myself because i am broke right about now, and it gets the noise away from the cabin. And its a 1988 gt hatchback, also everything is shaved, antanna, badges, door handels etc.
