  1. S550 styles I have not seen on the road...

    Join a MCA club or visit the local track. In my MCA club, there are several GT350s, a couple GT350Rs, Bullitts, and GT500s. I have rode in most of them, and sat in a Ford GT. I had a chance to take a track ride in a GT40, but it overheated when the driver forgot to turn the fans on, and did not...
  2. Did you buy your mustang for a collector car

    My 2013 is a one off. My 2019 may be just as limited a model too, but I bought them to drive and to modify. My 2013 has 100k miles and is not my main driver lately, but I have no plans on selling it anytime soon. There were a lot fewer of my 2013 Mustang made than were GT500s made than year...
  3. What do you think about GT/Ecoboost/V6 Mustangs with stripes? Poseurish? Tacky?

    It is up to the individual. My 2013 is subtle with Sterling Grey and discreet black stripes on the side. My 2019 is flash with Orange Fury with black stripes. Both have won trophies at car shows, both are street driven. Mustangs stand out without doing anything but keeping them clean and polished.
  4. Favorite stretch of road, trips - mainly US?

    Talimena Drive in the Fall and Route 66 (Joplin through Oklahoma) are always good bets. Tail of the Dragon at least once.
  5. Electric Mustangs = End of road racing’s future?

    Have learned a few things yesterday about running EVs on the track. It makes me wonder if the future will ever see Mustangs that can go from street to track when they go electric? A Tesla did some runs a Hallet recently. After each 15 minutes on the track, it took 90 minutes to recharge for...
  6. Shelby vs Shelby

    A fun video about the new Bronco racing a GT500 at Hallett MRC a short time ago. Shelby vs Shelby
  7. Financial decision having regrets now

    First off, making the automobile industry more efficient is a worthy goal, but let's not forget that one of the biggest energy users is the US military. Add the airline industry, the cargo ship industry, and other transportation industries. And the US is not the biggest energy user in the world...
  8. Financial decision having regrets now

    Didn't take too long for this thread to go down the political tubes. It is amazing how one incident is more damning against one side than hundreds of major incidents by the other side. It does prove the point that we are not ready for full transition to electric cars in the next few decades...
  9. Rented an Eco-boost...

    MCA driving school, my nephew, a Porsche lover, took my 2019 EB on the track. He was running 2:08 times and was hooked. He bought a 2018 GT350 and is doing 1:35 times. Since he drove my EB, I added a CVF 3” downpipe and Ford Performance Tune. Plus, I was running Michelin Pilot A/S because I had...
  10. Financial decision having regrets now

    Just spent the past few days at Mid-America in Tulsa, where among other things, Ford was touting the Mach-E and new Bronco. had a chance to talk with several people with real life experience and involvement with the upcoming electric future of cars. For most uses, the EVs are going to be fine...
  11. Mods to active exhaust?

    I installed a CVF catted downpipe and it helped the sound a lot. Other than that, there is little you can do. IMHO, the Active Exhaust is the best you can get, but you cannot turn four cylinders into eight.
  12. Tuners dissappearing [closed due to politics discussions]

    There is valid to many of the points made here. The fact is that we do not know the future. That aircraft flies is not science, it is physics. Science is taking known facts and postulating consequences or results to fit the information. I dealt with the pro and cons of science for decades. It...
  13. ORANGE FURY S550 MUSTANG Thread

    Today is the prep day of the Tulsa Starbird show. My club's cars moved into the pavilion last night and then this morning we started detailing them. A couple days ago, I got a rude shock. When I bought the car two years ago, I had purchased a new Ford decklid panel w/o emblem and a Scott Drake...
  14. ORANGE FURY S550 MUSTANG Thread

    I showed some pics of my car at the Starbird show last year. Thought I would show some of it on the track at Hallet.
  15. CVF 3" Stainless Steel Catted Downpipe for 2015+ Mustang EcoBoost

    Had the speed shop install the CVF catted down pipe into my 2019 with the Ford Performance Tune. Glad I didn't install it myself. The tech was impressed with the quality of the unit and once installed, it sounded great. On the negative, the connection to the turbo exhaust was difficult and took...
  16. IS $5500 PPF worth it GT350 ????

    A good ceramic coating is worth the money. There are many good coatings, and now the latest is carbon fibre. I had mine done a year ago. It can’t stop chips from trucks, but nothing really can.
  17. I break lug nuts and threads when taking wheels off

    My favorite method is to to loosen on the ground when using a breaker bar (Gorilla wrench), but if using an impact(Ryobi cordless) driver, it is not necessary. Installing the wheel, I loosely install the lug nuts with the impact, and then take it off the jack to torque them down. As for why...
  18. Ecoboost top speed

    I never trust speedometers, but I had to accept the troopers radar reading.
  19. Ecoboost top speed

    Top speed is often a matter of balancing the details. I had a 1972 Mercury Comet GT w/140 hp 302, C4 3-sped auto and 2.79 rear end. Not much compared to cars today, but I did some suspension upgrades, tires, an Offy 360 manifold with a 470 cfm Autolite carb from a 427 SOHC dual quad, and exhaust...
  20. 2021 Mach 1 Logo - How the Ford Graphics Team Modernized A Classic

    I love being ahead of the curve.:like: Considering my mods are similar without the R&D budget Ford had, I am loving it. I would love to get some of parts like the hood decal and door sills.
