    This year some cosmetical and performance mods are on my list. ( Full mods list: http://www.sonicstang.com/mods )

    Body:
    I recently received my Cervini's Cobra R 2000 style hood. Along with the Saleen S-281 wing it will give the Stang a whole new look. Can't wait to have it back from the painter. "Real Projector" Headlights are on order and should arrive soon.

    Interior:
    I installed the UPR billet aluminum door handles. Nothing spectacular but a nice accent.

    Audio:
    I bought a mach1000 system from a friend I, might install it this weekend. (2x 10" subs, 4 additional amps). I already found out how to hook it up to the mach460 system... gladly.

    Go fast stuff:
    Nothing but a Vortech this year. AMS power pipe is on it's way, just need to get an Xcal2. Maybe that and some more practice helps to get into the low 13s. (2006 my best was a 14.2 N/A on a crappy airfield-track).

    Well that's it, the Stang will definitely look sweet. Will take pics as soon as I start modding.
    Any comments/opinions?

    Back from the garage, tried the wing on. Somehow it is deformated. It doesn't really fit, the edges stick up way too far.

    The red line shows how it sits now, and the green line shows how it is supposed to sit. :dunno:

    I dont know if I should be happy or mad lol. I guess I will be happy haha. Thats the wing I was planning on getting and that has been my favorite hood for a long time now. Not to mention our cars being the same color. Oh well people will just think I copied you haha. Sounds like your car is gonna be even cooler this year. Cant wait to see it finished. What size cowl are you going with 3 inch? Get pics asap good luck man.

    Hood is painted, looks good IMO. Sorry for the bad pics, though, that camera I used sucks.

    Car is wingless at the moment. Not sure if I will keep it that way. :-\ Thought about ordering a wing from abc exclusive but shipping to Germany is really expensive.

    I don't plan tu use the FMU and I have 42lb injectors. Without the tune from the Xcal2 the car probably would run crappy.
