2015 TY Mustang GT Premium
Whats up guys, all my threads until now have been product development threads as this new platform launches. Aside from my job, the MAK 2015 GT is also my personal car and everyday driver. So if I can lend a hand to anyone here please feel free to PM me. I am more than happy to help out fellow stangers anytime I can.

This is my first 0 mile new car. My previous mustang a 93 LX Hatchback Foxbody which I must say still impresses me. I will be sadened when she finally sells as I do not have room for two mustangs and my truck. I look at it as she got me this far, the 2015 is taking the reigns from here. I basically will use this thread as a way to document my cars build from a personal stand point.

Starting Specs:
2015 Mustang GT Premium 400A w/ Voice Activated Navi
Triple Yellow Tri-Coat
Ebony Leather Interior
20in Factory Optional Wheels
6-Speed Manual
3.31 Gears

Waiting for me at the Dealer after being washed(What a great feeling):


The next morning got to work extra early:


Here it is with the Owner's 650RWHP Whippled Screaming Yellow 04 Cobra:


First Mods:
I had the car a total of 3 days before we made our first mods. They consisted of a UPR Single Valve Catch Can, the MAK Offroad 3in Cat Deletes, and Interior LED Upgrades. I personally can't stand the mini cans hanging in front of the Valve cover so I decided to go with the Larger Single Valve Catch Can and hide it under the Radiator cover.

I've never been much a looks guy, its always been about all out performance, but I guess as we get older that changes a bit, so my next mod was some Hydro-Dipped Carbon Fiber accents to the engine bay and the interior. I know its not everyone's cup of tea, but to each their own. I think looks wicked. This mod was a collaboration with the guys over at Southeast CarbonWorks, their process is the reason this stuff looks so good, there is a reason they do this for some of the largest companies in the Mustang Game. You can tell when a piece is Hydro Dipped by them or by someone else.

Gonna follow this thread very carefully.
How difficult was it to match the yellow color when doing the engine cover?
Any thoughts about the plastic antifreeze container?
Maybe black or yellow or carbon fiber painted with a stripe to visually see the coolant level?

Also, hopefully there will be dyno pull documentation on the cold air intake.

The yellow looks to be spot on, a paint code from Ford should makes the color match easy at this point since everything is brand new. I could probably get you a bit more detail during the paint portion of it is not our area of expertise, I would have to consult with the paint guys. If you have any particular question let me know and I can have it answered.

Coolant tank? Hideous the only part of the car that I "hate", some aftermarket ones will be available soon. We will also have a cover that can be painted or dipped for the factory tank.

There will be dyno documentation of the intake install. Please do not lynch me as you will see the intake installed, but I will not be able to post numbers due to confidentially agreements. The information will be released very soon.

I had a busy Saturday, had my friends over at Elite Auto Service give the car a full detail along with a paint sealant. Also took advantage and had Wilson Window Tint tint the car up, both these guys are top notch and their work speaks for itself. If you are in the South Florida area these guys come very highly recommended.





All Done Nice and Clean extremly happy with the results...

Car looks great! Time to get rid of the prop rod!
Working on it, just not a fan of drilling a hole in the factory plastics, even if they are $15.00, just don't like the look.

Never been a car show guy myself, but this was a charity show for a Special Needs Foundation hosted by our local ford dealer. Walked away with a TOP 35 Award, not really a big deal. Got a lot of compliments on the car as many were seeing an S550 for the first time. Also had two buddies out there with their newly received S550s.

I included the last picture, because you all must see what we have to deal with in South Florida.
