    Keep in mind 85% of the people on the site are guests and not registered users.

    Congrats on the new car, ruby red is such a luscious color.

    Very nice!

    That Ruby Red really pops. Looks clean.

    Its amazing how far they have come from the factory (performance wise.) Driving must be worlds better then your old v6. The 2014 v6 runs what the stock 96-98 cobra ran, Factory vs Factory they are practically even. What was the top of the ladder from the factory is now the entry level 2014, Very impressive!

    What exactly do you have planned as far as mods?

    thanks fellas...yea the guest vs user ratio on here has really changed since i was more active.

    so far for a 6 im REALLY impressed. Spins the tires shifting into 3rd when trac is turned off. I was really looking for a car in blue of black but
    like ya said i couldnt pass up the Ruby red. plans for it right now are to keep it stock. Might do some small upgrades tho like wheels and minor performance stuff.
    time will deff change that tho.

    That's great man! I'm pretty knowledgeable on those cyclone V6's so before you go crazy just feel free to ask :)

    Glad to see you again!

    Headers are usually able to be found cheap. Brothers performance regularly does 20% off of BBK, and I think latemodel will usually do 20% off steeda stuff for the intake (it's the best one for it)

    So,while as work on monday some awesome person decided to hit my car and leave. Passenger side door. Luckily Geico is covering it all other then 200$. I decided to get a door on my own for a good price (300) and geico is paying me 600 for the door so its supplied to the painter rather then them source it. Work is going to start getting done on Weds.

    I took off the panel and pooped alot of it out,just bc i could stand seeing it pushed in.

    That ripple in the dor drives me nuts.
    Heres the new door,off a 2014 5.0 that was wrecked at 2,000 miles.
