    After a lotttt of searching, and convincing my parents, i finally got a SN95. Its a 1997 GT, 4.6, 5 speed. It was owned by an older man and you can just tell its never been beaten on. It only has 55k miles, and it has never seen winter, and has rarely seen rain!! Its white, has tinted windows, and headlight covers :-\ .
    I can not wait to get this car home, and then of course mod it. I think my first mod will be an exhaust, because i hate quiet cars. I was thinking a Mac X pipe / Slp loudmouth?
    I know to do headers on this car can be a real disaster so im going to hold off on that until i do the PI head swap 8)
    I owe my parents a few thousand dollars, so i probably wont have the money to mod it for a little while. Anyways, heres soem pics

    nice clean car, congrats. i would as well do exhaust, i think offroad x then good old flowmasters or magnaflow are hard to beat.

    Thanks guys!! Well this is my first stang that isnt a p.o.s -- I owned a 1984 svo for a little while, i bought it with the guy saying it needed brake work and tires... :dunno: The drivers side apron (frame rail) was actually rotted away :aresehole: So the only driving i got to do in that car was holeshots up my driveway, which was pretty fun seeing i lost a grand on the sale, but whatever...

    And yes i found out the deal with the salvage title, just like hte guy told me, it was stolen when it was brand new, and the owner of the car wanted a new one, so the leinholder had to auction it off with the salvage title. It doesnt have the salvage - reconstructed title, thank god..

    The cars coming tonight, and hopefully it will be registered by thursday (my day off) so i can go joy ride and take some better pics... Cant wait
     
  12. ok...

    offroad X + SLP LM1s will be raspy as heck...

    h-pipes give a deeper muscle car sound
    x-pipes give a raspier euro sound

    SLP LM1s are straight through mufflers... which are loud...

    Flowmaster, borla, mac, magna flow, etc are chambered... they also give a deeper muscle sound...

    and headers are cool too
