    Hi all! I've created this build thread to keep a personal log of my base model 2015 Mustang GT with Performance Package. I have an excel spreadsheet with my modifications, but I figured a thread would be much cooler.

    My car is pretty much a "weekend warrior," but I take her out on nice days during the week too. As for build plans, I intend to keep it "full bolt on" for now, but who knows. I'm definitely not against throwing on a supercharger later down the line!

    Nice build Joe, when are you going to install the manifold? Throttle body too or reducer?

    Hey Ted! I’m aiming to install the manifold in early March. I’ll also be installing a GT350 throttle body with an adapter. Just picked up a 4” coupler so I can reuse my JLT intake.

    How did those MMD splash guards fit?

    The splashguards fit great! I bought them because I went with wider wheels that sit flush with the fender, so I have to protect my quarterpanels from rock chips.
