I love the wheels on this thing! It is just a super classy car that you can have so much fun with. And I agree, you lowered it to the absolute perfect height!

hares a link that should allow you to sync your account between the two so you don't have to change your username, password, or lose your post count... unless you prefer to then just go to the site direct and sign up with a different name and become a newb once again lol

Thanks. I just took a look on there at the Mustang section and it's not attracting me at all ... I'm already on allfordmustangs.com, s197forum.com, and themustangsource.com and those Mustang sites actually get updated and have traffic ... BOF seems to barely get any traffic / replies ... I'm all set I guess, I'll stay with the sites I'm already on.

Lol thanks but the badges are gonna stay, especially since the fender is not hole-free behind them ...

Thanks Nevin.

I'm actually contemplating getting 2 new wheels to send out to have widened so I can run wider rear tires safely ... and a small spacer up front to bring the wheels out a little, something like 1/8" or 1/4" at most ...

Gabe, Have you heard of BAMA Performance. With your GT, since you have VVT on intake and exhaust, you can get a tune called "Ghost Cam" which will modify your timing and make it sound like you have Ford B303 cam.

my friend in a different unit got this EXACT tune and I love the sound of it.

Here's a Video:

Sounds pretty mean, what about at higher RPMs? And would that effect performance at all?

Thanks, yeah I know about the Ghost Cam tunes ... there's not a lot of tuners that offer it for the '13-'14 ... I am pretty close to ordering a Bama tuner from AM, but I don't think they offer the ghost-cam tunes anymore ...

I love the color. Keep in mind guys the springs will settle in a few weeks and he'll be looking at another quater inch drop or like my springs on my focus another .5 inch drop.
