    What's up FL S550 folks?!

    I haven't been on the ole M6G in a hot minute! Found my old t-shirt and figured I'd dust off the pc, updated my profile and drop a couple posts.

    I'm Josh Parker, co-founder of Parker Performance here in Central FL (New Port Richey, 34653). We've been specializing in the S550 platform since 2015, and have done everything from 9 second Ecoboosts to boosted Cyclones & of course boosted Coyotes! What started out as just helping my friend & his friends out in my garage, has turned into a full fledged business in only a couple of years, accidentally. We now have a full retail commercial facility and are packed every day of the week helping S550 owners (and other cars, too) reach their customization & go-fast goals. We're dealers for over 1,000 different brands now, and have some of the most amazing vendor partners in the business - from dyno facilities, tuners, parts, custom alignments, powder coating, vinyl wrapping, ceramic coating - pretty much full service at this point!

    I personally own the one and only 2018 Mustang GT RTR Spec 5 SEMA car, and I'm one of the early founding members (and an admin) at Florida S550 on Facebook. I purchased the car from a thread in that group, actually. One of our members posted the car for sale at a dealership over in Clermont, where it had been traded in on a Nismo 370Z (ooof). The dealership didn't know what they had, and thought the kid had just slapped a bunch of parts on a standard GT PP. The thread on our FB group some guys were saying it was actually Vaughn's car that GAS built for him for SEMA, and all these different variants of that. I figured even if only 25% of that back story was true, I kinda needed to see the car myself and possibly buy it. Low and behold, it was exactly that car! And I bought that bitch! While this isn't my typical kind of build for myself, it was too good of a car, too good of a back story, too good of an opportunity to not buy it (I would typically build a "sleeper" for myself).

    So now I've had it for several years enjoying it and have enjoyed touring the SE US with it and showing it off for other Mustang Enthusiasts to see. I actually just took the car off the road for a whole host of new goodies, as we attempt to make a 9 second pass with the God-Forsaken FRPP/Roush Blower on the car (lol).

    Anyways, wanted to update the profile, make a re-introduction, and say that we're here to help you guys out if we can!!

    I've watched some of your videos as of late.
    I really enjoyed the big brake kit video you did on the S550 about a year ago,IIRC. Very informative with the torque specs/install.
    Would love to get that kit for my car someday. Someday,...........lol

    That must've been the GT350R Brake Kit install video we did! Thanks for watching, I appreciate each and every person that spends even a single minute watching our stuff. We don't make any money doing any of that stuff, yet, but we are really pushing to make that change. I have brought in a full-tilt videographer who really has a keen eye for creating - and it's made our most recent social media efforts just insanely better. We've added a couple of different segments, and you can really tell that the editing is done by someone who's a professional in their craft!

    Shameless plug, here's our first attempt at a "VLOG" from a day at the shop:

    And that brake kit is on the short list of modifications that I look forward to adding to the RTR next year (I think this round of upgrades has already exceeded this year's budget for the whole ass year, lol). But it's such a pricey kit!

    The new shop location is down in New Port Richey, but we're just a short drive from Spring Hill. I still live in 34609 Spring Hill, personally.

    We don't weld, but we do sell and install exhaust parts and systems. Longtubes, resonator deletes, catback systems, axle back systems, etc.

    Thank you!!! Trying to make it a habit of coming back to check the forums regularly now, lol. Keep forgetting until someone replies and the forum emails me (it's hell getting old)!
