Pfffft......

Depending on your part of Michigan, you'll be able to drive it in March here and there.

I like to make sure April showers wash away all traces of salt from the roads.
I have been doing it this way for 8 years and vary happy with the results,

i changed out the "PP-1" wheels(19x9/9.5) for the ford performance "pp-2" replicas(19x9.5/10) in matte black fitted to michelin ps4s in 255/275 staggered fitment.also installed the "ROUSH AERO FOILS" to the rear valance,i'm really pleased with the effect,looks great with the "FORD PERFORMANCE BY BORLA"(sport) axel backs with black chrome tips!

Love the monolithic black against white look!

Wouldnt that wheel/tire change end up being the exact same setup as a stock Mach 1? If so you’ll like it!

yes,to my knowledge,it's the exact same set up,i have to say it improved handeling,but i started from a base car(18x8 in/235-50-18) to a "pp-1" setup(19x9/9.5) to this setup with michelin ps4s(19x9.5/10in,255/275)i've also added ford performance strut tower bracing and lower (pp-1) k-brace....it' handles way better that the factory original setup...much tighter control.

Agreed!

If you are able to exceed the grip capabilities of your new setup in street driving my hat is off to you big time. I push my Machs pretty hard in the N. GA mountain twisties and I cannot, short of stupidity. Best of all, this particular staggered combination is totally predictable; no ugly surprises.

The engineers who spec’d it out clearly knew exactly what they were doing.

Quick edit: my Machs like 36-37 PSI with this setup. YMMV.

i would say the car exhibits much less understeer,with an added ability to stay planted in the rear,without a hint of oversteer,almost neutral(but biased toward understeer),even beyond the "PP-1" combo(michelin ps4s) setup i had prior.steering is much more precise than the base setup(18x8-235-50-18)...but again,i also added strut tower braces and lower" K-menber".

that is what I used and love it
I'm pumped to hear the sound difference. If you're talking about the pipe not the hood

If you like the stock tone, you’ll like the h pipe. Very similar tone. Volume is increased one notch for each active exhaust setting, quiet is still pretty quiet. I love my h pipe. My dad has an X pipe on his and it sounds really good also. Can’t go wrong with either but I prefer the h.

Nice looking Mustang, I just purchased a Hurst grille from AM and I like how you painted the emblem. Did you use spray paint with masking or free hand brush,
Thanks for any tips!

Awesome that was my debate. I love the stock sound with AE so I went H. Glad to know I'll be happy
