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!

I did the same, the Ford Performance HP Performance wheels in 9.5 front, 10.0 rear, and like you, 255/40 and 275/40 PS4S tires. In this case, these replaced PP1 wheels with Pirelli's. The PS4S transformed the car, giving me much more confidence, the Pirelli's made it feel skittish, wet or dry.

I also eventually caved to peer group pressure and swapped the chrome lugs for black...................

first off,your pictures are great....and the "matte color" complements the red,i switched from "michelin AS3+" to "PS4S" from the base tire on my black 17 ,the same tire went onto my white 21,but you are correct,the "PS4" is a different experience.the addition of the wider wheel seemed to add a slightly higher level of grip/confidense to the car.

That’s really good, I keep meaning to teach myself how to do stuff with paracord :like:

The furthest I have got is these (and a few other camping bits) :

Although it’s in poor lighting, the blue knife is very similar to grabber blue - I did a copy of my black knife as a best man gift for my brother (beads are titanium) :like:

That's pretty cool man. I used to have a small collection of knives. Loved them all.

i’m new here, but I’ve been on many other forms for years ; the Corvette, camaro, and several Bmw forums.. But I finally got the 5.0 Mustang I’ve always wanted. So far I’ve added rear spoiler, 20 inch wheels and tires, side louvers and gas tank cap, Painted the brakes apple red. I’m very happy with the look. Adding 20% tint and a Borla axle back this coming week. I might add this car came from a state that used a front plate, so I had two nice holes in the front plastic, bumperplugs.com took care of that, nice product; perfect paint match.

added 20 pct tint today….

update : they were able to install the borla today… what a great sound, a real nice burble around the garage, not upsetting anybody, but then you stick your foot in it and wow…..the place that installed It was so impressed they made a YouTube video for their store.:

that’s real nice…
The bottles are simple, although somewhat tedious… Keeps me out of the bars, I guess, lol!

No resonator but xpipe. No more borla atak3 axle back but pipes going up to try reduce drag and protect the new diffuser.
Car got picked up to go fix my transmission. Fingers crossed ☺

Well, not today but yesterday. Water pump started leaking heavily from the weep hole, so I picked up an AutoZone Duralast new replacement. Comes with an aluminum impeller for $120 thereabouts.

The only issue I had during the install (other than the removal of the old pump was a PITA) is that boss for the crossover pipe mounting bolt is too short, and the OE bolt bottomed out before the bracket tightened up. Quick trip to Lowes for a M6x1.0 25mm bolt and all was good. Took a little over a gallon of coolant to burp and top off the system after all was said and done.

I spent about 10 hours on Saturday getting the supercharger, oil pan, front bracketry, wiring harness and harmonic balancer/dampner put on. Waiting on the Kinetik crank saver stud, spark plugs and new slave cylinder before we mate it all back up to the transmission with the Vengeance Stage 2 clutch and Barton hybrid shifter. I had a little oil on the lens of my camera so they are a little blurry.
