    Long story short, my coworker had this 2014 GT, and was trying to turn it into a boss because he couldn't find a boss that he liked. Found a wrecked boss, bought the wheels, dash, and exhaust off of it, and was slowly making the transition. Then he stumbled on a '12 boss with 1500 miles, at a deal he couldn't refuse. So he bought it, then needed out of this car, so he gave me a deal I couldn't refuse.

    The cool thing is I got paid to work on this car months ago, so, I upgraded my car for free and made money ;p

    Anyhow, I had him put the stock wheels back on to knock off the cost some, otherwise it's a 2014 GT 3.73 Track Pack with the Recaro seats (omg sexx) in High Performance White.

    So far mods are as follows:

    Whiteline lower control arm relocation brackets

    Boss 302 stock side exhaust

    Roush CAI (little more than an air filter)

    The plan is to drive this car, since the red car was becoming more and more untrustworthy by the day. Come January, the police academy will start and I will be busy 6 days a week and won't have the time to correct a problem if it should arise. So, this thing is still under warranty for 2 years, and has all these great amenities.

    The V6 is taking the back burner, so I can build it the way I had intended all along. Basically a dedicated Autox car. I have a friend who is letting me store it for free.

    Future mods (probably a ways off):
    Maximum motorsports LCA's
    Aluminum Driveshaft
    SVE Chin spoiler


    Thread Table of Contents:
    Underhood Light Install


    And anything I deem necessary otherwise. Anyhow, here's some pics. Enjoy :)

    First thing I did was fix the exhaust leak at the collectors. How to pull the pipes forward? Ratchet strap around the H of course ;p

    So much better now!

    Anyhow, thanks for looking. I'm really excited!

    Awesome man. Same car my friend has minus the Recaros. I gotta say, from driving a bolt on 95 to a 14 with a trackpack and 3.73s was an insane drive. I got in 2nd and just held on for dear life haha. Mgw ftw!

    Dude, the Recaros are the experience lol. Seriously, all of my friends with 11-14 cars don't have them. They sit in these and are like "now I regret not getting this option" lol

    Like I said mods will be slow, I don't have that big budget like [MENTION=9404]Paul[/MENTION] ;p

    I knew you'd say that haha! This one will probably not get stripes, but if you look at my girlfriends build thread, that is something we are planning!
