I'm somewhat guilty of this, but I only grab the 10k's and certain special numbers (I have a shot of 6666.6 :crackup:).

What I don't understand is pulling over...it's less authentic then :giggle:

Depends on whether you drive a manual or not, you might be able to get away with a Man Card Provisional Warning.
I'm a manual guy. So hopefully a warning will do.

Got this (borla switchfire midpipe) today and installed it later in the evening. Did it with only the rear jacked up and on stands. Somewhat of a pain for a 1 person job but got it done and couldn't be happier. I put up sound samples on my IG with each active mode.

How's the clearance with that pipe vs a regular x pipe / stock pipe. I've been entertaining adding this to my frpp Borla S system just not sure if it's worth it or not.

It tucks in with no issues. The X side sits upwards towards the car which has the contour already. I ran Borla S CBE on my 16 GT and loved it. I'd imagine they would be significantly louder with the switchfire. It almost sounds like I am running headers with my stock active mufflers.

In my book this falls under the category of "very unlikely to matter". Tire shops and dealers have been raw dogging the hell out of lug nuts and studs with their impacts for years now. There's no way manufacturers don't know this by now, so there's likely quite a bit of margin with the factory setups. So your 10% inaccuracy reading from greased threads isn't likely to matter.
I've seen snapped off lug nuts studs because the threads were lubricated and torqued to factory specs. Not a good idea to lube lug studs.

Has anyone gone with two piece rotors? Even if you haven’t, what’s your opinion on them?

Thinking about getting away from the stock rotors but have heard that it’s best to just go with a better pad over anything else.

Is there a newer version of the Sync Software available? My Mustang is a 2019 Model year. I was just looking around in the settings between Android Auto and Sync on the touch screen, and noticed that the last update was from February 2019. The display says it's version 3, and when I attempted an update, a screen with a circular status bar appeared and did not progress anywhere. I just turned everything off as I was not that concerned.

You don't want to update from wifi. Log onto Ford and download updates to usb if available for your car.

I stopped. Deleted iPhone/all phones out of the car settings, turned phone and car off and repaired carplay.

working now. But weird as hell that happened.I won’t update from 3.0 there isn’t a further update but if it did get updated to3.4 it would remove the ford performanceford gt themes. Which is so much nicer on the eyes imo

I did a minor mod to the steering wheel (white pony) to match the shifter knob and white leather stitching. Also added some carbon fiber vinyl to cover the bland oem bezels.

I decided to remove the red front and rear pin stripes from the splitter and the rear valance. I'm keeping the red in the interior though.

Ditched the ugly and ridiculously narrow stock base wheels for some new meats :)

American Racing AR924 20x9 +35 with 275/35/20 Firestone Indy 500s and 20x10.5 +45 with 305/35/20
I just threw them on and took a test drive so please excuse them not being cleaned up.

Now I have to decide if I want to lower it at all, maybe just the front? and what color to paint the calipers. Red is a possibility but I'm leaning towards blue

Red looks good IMO
