So I'm really curious about thoughts and ideas. My wife made me buy an 96 GT and I have never been into cars, but I got it and now I can't stop. So here is the project.

1996 GT
4.6 Turbo Motor - In Progress
- cast iron block
- Forged connecting rods
- Performance piston heads
- PI Head swap
- Tod Warren spec boost cams

T45 Transmission
- MGW Shifter

Rear End
- Currently 4.10 geared solid axel
- Planned 99 SVT Cobra IRS swap

99 Cobra brake upgrade done
dual halo headlights
sequential rear turn signals
Double Din conversion with touch screen radio
99 Cobra Dash Cluster

Things I'm considering
dual RGB halos (will have to custom make these)
Finally tracking down a decent M12x1.75 shifter cinch nut. (MGW provides them with shifter knobs but $60 for a knob ...)
LED bulb upgrade
Finally having a cup holder that the b**** brake doesn't spill everywhere

This is what i remember off the top of my head. I'm new to the car thing just curious what people think about the build plan that we have

Anyone have suggestions for seats? I read the upholstery is glued to the foam in the 96, so it's better to just buy foam and upholstery. I've been looking around and TMI has a good stock look but with the Black/Saddle tan dual tone interior I was hoping to find black/tan upholstery for the seats.

Any suggestions on aesthetic mods? Wife wouldn't let me put big KC lights on the style bar ... or have a naked chick flying as a hood ornament..

Good looking ride! I'm more of a fan of the stock-style headlights. Look into Cobra since you have the Cobra front bumper.
