    Dude, congrats! That thing looks great! What all did they do to the engine? Oh and I like the Saleen wheels and brakes.

    Nice ride. Forget the brakes and wheels, I want the blower in the worst way!

    Its stock internals as far as I know. The seller didn't know, it was sold by a dealer with all these parts already installed.

    yeah I did. I feel like I got good deal on it though all things considered. When I saw it in person I knew I had to have it

    the blower is fun, the whine it makes is awesome haha. The exhaust isn't too loud either so it's a nice mix of exhaust and blower whine.

    Thanks guys

    Ill get sone videos once I get it registered


    in the meantime can someone tell me what the normal operating position of the coolant temp needle is? Mine sits past the middle a little to the right. Granted it is 95 here, the temp never climbed further than that position.

    Some blurry shots from my phone. I didn't have my camera with me when I rushed to get to this parking lot. I wanted to catch a photo of the car during the sunset but traffic got me.

    That's an awesome ride! Props for your patience waiting to find the right one.

    As as far as the temp gauge, mine always sat a little high until I put in a 180 degree t-stat and loaded up a bama tune (I know people don't recommend them very often). I don't think it's an issue to read a little past the middle on the stock gauge as long as it doesn't keep climbing past the normal range.

    I did hear about the thermostat thing. I'll have to look more into it thanks. I'm sure it could use a full coolant flush as well, it's been so hot and humid here I bet its really hurting for a better cooling system.

    It hasn't been as hot lately I noticed the temp gauge is closer to the middle now




    Today I learned a mustang can go through 3/4 of a tank of gas in less than a day, pretty easily I might add. Still worth it.

    Here's a quick acceleration video. Its a hot day and the blower wasn't too happy so I didn't push too hard. On this onramp this car already hit 120mph from a dead stop
