    How long did you want a Mustang before you got one and what did it take to make it possible?

    I had a 65 Mustang in the 60s and I was not impressed, so I never really wanted another one. But, I was looking for a decent performing convertible with a back seat that people could actually sit in. You would be surprised at how few cars fit that criteria. I tried a Mustang GT, Camaro ZL1...

    how noticeable is 100 torque on a car ?

    It depends on the supercharger. In general, you will definitely notice 100lbs of torque, that is nearly a 20% increase. But the Coyote engine is small displacement, so max torque normally occurs at higher rpms. A centrifugal supercharger would increase the torque mostly at higher rpms. The...

    2018 Mustang GT PP1 Premium to C7 Corvette Z06?

    A cousin has one and I have been looking for one, so I've borrowed his a couple times. It is much lighter than my GT and it is noticeable in handling and response. Steering is very quick. Quality is somewhat better than a Mustang, especially paint. The seat padding and support doesn't feel...

    Sequential pattern...for brake lights...why is it that some frown upon its use?

    If you modify your tail lights/brake lights you face a possible lawsuit if somebody hits you. They can claim all sorts of BS reasons why your lights are the reason they hit you and you will have to prove otherwise. If you leave them stock they can only sue the car manufacturer.

    2018 heated/cooled seat issue

    I looked under my seats and if there is a module it must be integrated into the seat bottom. I found nothing obvious.

    Mustang GT vs Kia Stinger GT

    Maybe I'm prejudiced, but I'd buy a used BMW or Audi over a new Stinger.

    2018 heated/cooled seat issue

    Did the seats ever work? I have a GT convertible too and have never used my heat/cool feature.

    Sequential pattern...for brake lights...why is it that some frown upon its use?

    I work for a county government. Our sheriffs department will tell you not to mess with your brake lights. Any change is likely to be illegal. It doesn't matter what they do, the way they came is the way they were approved. The only thing that is allowed is adding an approved supplemental brake...

    2018 heated/cooled seat issue

    It should still be under warranty. Take it to a dealer.

    Northern climate/winter driven S550 Mustangs: how are they holding up?

    I was running Blizzaks all year on my BMW. You are right, they ride great, are quiet and really grip. But they wear out very fast.

    Mustang GT vs ... (Post whatever you've raced and how it went)

    Thanks. That's good to know. Something to entertain me when my warranty expires.

    Mustang GT vs ... (Post whatever you've raced and how it went)

    E85 and a tune gives you 470whp? No other mods?

    Mustang GT vs ... (Post whatever you've raced and how it went)

    My GT convertible must be really slow because it can't beat my 335i and it only puts out about 350whp.

    Northern climate/winter driven S550 Mustangs: how are they holding up?

    Because prevailing winds are almost always west to east, SW Michigan has lots of beautiful beaches. But, they get a lot of lake effect snow. I wonder where Sault Ste. Marie ranks? I guess I am fortunate in that I no longer need to drive anywhere in the winter if I don't wish to.

    when you open the door to your garage, what are you greeted with?

    I have had both. I'll take the BMW. WRX/STI parts are expensive and horizontally opposed, turbo-charged engines present many unique challenges.

    Any one with QA-1 CF driveshaft have break issues?

    Duh... It's primarily a "show car" and has won it's share off trophies. You don't win by looking like every other car. It was originally built to compete in A/GS class in nostalgia drags, but one thing lead to another...

    Any one with QA-1 CF driveshaft have break issues?

    That "show car" has been driven to many national shows and events around the country, since being completed 7 years ago.

    Any one with QA-1 CF driveshaft have break issues?

    My brother-in-law uses a custom QA1 CF driveshaft in his 67 Chevelle. It has been performed very well. This Chevelle has a 540ci Merlin with a 12/71 blower and dual quads and can run E85 or alcohol. The transmission is a modified TH400, if that matters.

    What is the next "special" trim?

    Isn't that engine the Aluminator?

    Hello! Looking for feedback

    I am very happy with the 10 speed in my GT convertible, even with 3.15 gears... no worries about tire spin and it moves very well once it hits 4000 rpms in sport mode or above. I have toyed with the idea of changing the gears to 3.55, but haven't seriously pursued it. Can't help you with audio...
