bringler26 I really like what you've done so far. I still can't believe the new v6 has around the same power as the old 4.6 v8. Had a '12 v6 vert rental and it was a pretty fun car to drive.

goinloco1 I'd agree with swapping to the barton mount. best 65 bucks you'll spend
and a shifter will be a definite improvement over the stock one

Check out mustangforums.com and search around a bit. A few different companies make them. The most common is the Barton bracket. It's about $60-$70. The stock one is held together with zip ties! lol

To be honest I don't need power. I got enough/perhaps too much now. And people who auto x/race prefer v6 because of better weight distributions.

I'm going for cosmetic for now. Need to learn the car with current power before getting more. Besides v6 is same power as 2010 gt which costs $5k more. In a couple year I can always just spend $4k and have 500hp from just a supercharger. Don't hear people cry about bmw's with v6 engines.

I was going to buy focus st, until I saw my payments and though that. Il get mustang that has more power and have fun with rwd.
Since you have the performance package, the only upgrade I can think of is a shifter bracket. That stock shifter gets kinda notchy after a while.

You should have just bought a Porsche. Even if you reach those levels of performance, you've still only got 1/4 of a car compared to a Porsche.
