    What's up guys I'm Treshan,

    [​IMG]

    To start I got this girl when I turned 22 a little less than a year ago (sold my 88 f150) and I pretty much jumped on the first 5-speed I saw knowing nothing about mustangs or power output, I just knew I wanted a v8 and a 5-speed so I could be a hoonigan...


    Here she is when I first got her bone stock, she came with 76k miles and was a lady's garage kept CLEAN Sunday driver. Then my dumb ass got ahold of it :) and it was all down hill from there...

    This is how she sits present day. No fancy pictures just dirty ass wheels haha

    First thing I knew was I wanted to set off car alarms so I took her to the muffler shop and I got my mufflers hacked off but that wasn't enough so I made them cut off 4 cats a month later.

    ditching the stock mid pipe is the way to go on these. Sounds better and actually picks up HP.

    Bassani X with cats, NJ is a PITA with emissions but next year the car is 20 years old and hopefully no more inspection.

    The poles behind your car make it look like you put a white, nascar style spoiler on your car.

    You arent using that cinderblock to hold the weight of the car on the pinch welds are you? Those are merely used to hold on your sideskirts.
