BmacIL's Guard GT Build

I've had my car for just a bit over 7 months (picked up 3/28/15) and have done a few mods, most to replicate most of the GT PP feel and composure for a lot less while still having a great DD. I've autocrossed the car a few times and the handling balance is now very good, just need more grip for more fun and speed!

My car is a base GT, as it came:
3.31 axle, manual transmission
Base 18" machined wheels and tires

Mod list:

Chassis:
Ford Racing Strut Tower Brace and K-Brace kit - May 2015
Performance Pack Lower K-Brace and Oil filter closeout panel - Dec 2015
BMR CB005 IRS cradle lockout kit - Sept 2016
PP firewall/cowl connector - Feb 2018

Suspension:
Performance Pack Rear Sway Bar - June 2015
Steeda Pro-Action Fixed struts - Dec 2016
GT350R front springs - Dec 2016
BMR SP085 rear springs - Dec 2016
Steeda Billet rear shock mounts - Mar 2017
Ford Racing Track rear shocks - Mar 2018
BMR TCA048 Vertical Links - April 2018

Wheels & Tires:
SVE Drift 19x9.5 Flat Black Wheels - Mar 2017

Engine:
Bob's Oil Separator - May 2015
Sound Tube Delete - Nov 2015
Livernois 93 Performance tune - May 2017
Livernois Flex Fuel Tune - April 2018
Mishimoto Induction Tube

Exhaust:
Corsa Sport catback

Transmission/Shifter:
BG Syncroshift II Transmission Fluid - Oct 2016
MGW Race Spec Shifter - Nov 2017

Interior:
Weathertech Front Liners & Trunk Liner - Nov 2015
Tictail Steering Wheel Green Pony & Silver Carbon Pony surround decals - Jul 2017


Future mods:
RLCA bearings

Woo! X-pipe resonator delete installed today. So far I really like it. Perfectly civilized but a nice sound

Did sound tube delete on Friday. Very good mod for very cheap! In addition to the cleaner noise in the cabin (and just a tad less volume), throttle response is notably better. So far I've just taken the front section off, but will probably remove the rest soon. I just used these to cap it off at both ends: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

FYI I got these to cap both ends. Worked like a charm:

and this for plugging the firewall eventually:

Guard GT crew! I saw you were posting quite a bit on the exhaust threads, we are actually both looking for the same thing sound wise!

Are you still thinking of going with the Magnaflow mufflers?

I haven't decided yet! To be honest, it's been really great the last few days with just my X-pipe. I really want to hear it being driven to know how loud it is/how good it sounds from the outside. From the inside, I love it. The sound tube delete really woke up the throttle response and rev-matched downshifts are great.

Yeah I am very torn on the issue.

I also have an X-pipe and would love the mufflers, but I wish I could hear them first and sit in a car with them. I hate drone with a passion so I want a set up with none, I might just go CAI and hope the additional growl will suffice for me!

Interesting....

I decided to order a Roush Intake first, I figure that with the intake being on sale right now it makes sense.

I will let you know how it sounds, maybe that will provide the increase in sound I want when I step on it!

Based on my experience with cone filter, open CAIs, it will! It's on my wish list as well.

Added Anarchy Motive heavy shift knob recently, and finished the front-end bracing with the lower K-brace over the weekend. Shift knob is HEAVY! 588 grams vs. 141 grams. It really makes shifting smooth, and now I don't really want to do anything with the shifter.

Car has 19,600 miles on it now.
