People using the Mustang as a practical everyday vehicle is always good to see.

Nobody laughing, doesn't mean first mod has to be a 300HP supercharger.
Pretty sure my first ever mod was a seat cover (that I put in after sweaty baseball games) and sidemarker LED strip. Looks so much better than the crummy tiny bulbs.

Mine was either the catchcan or the Sto-n-Sho bracket. I had both before the car came in :crackup:

Steeda clutch spring, by far. Not that I have many mods on my car, but... that first week or two with the stock spring was rough. Especially with it being my first manual, it made feeling for the bite point impossible. Every time the clutch pedal kicked back under spring tension and stalled the car under me I'd think I did something terribly wrong, lol.

I've driven manuals all my life as I'm from Europe (so 11 years of driving) and the bite point on my Bullitt is tough to find also.
My Steeda clutch spring arrived yesterday (along with trunk popper) and am popping it in probably tomorrow! Can't wait to feel the difference

Echoing all else, it really is night and day. I'm sure you'll feel it immediately given your experience but, even to me on my first—it was an immediate change in feel. Much smoother, much more control.

I also read of some folks just, forgoing the clutch assist spring altogether for super linear engagement. But if I recall, they also reported unwanted harshness running no spring at all, and possibly higher wear. The Steeda spring strikes the sweet spot of, making the car driveable without affecting anything else.

In the product/install video I've watched from Steeda they specifically advised against not reinstalling the spring (whether it's back to stock or the Steeda).
I'm sure there are a lot of parts within the car that you could remove for better feel/better performance, but probably drastically reduce durability of said part / increase its wear&tear.

Good that they warn people against it. I had no intent of running without a spring—and mind, that definitely wasn't an endorsement of doing so. Drivetrain harshness and extra clutch wear aren't worth it.

Sometimes you can only lead a horse to water, though...
