This is the build thread for my 2001 Mustang GT! I purchased the car in January of 2009 during my senior year of high school. It was traded in at the local ford dealer and needed some work. The head gaskets were shot and oil had leaked into the cooling system. However, the price was right and it had the two options I found necessary at the time, a V8 and a 5 speed. With the help of my parents a week or two later it was in the driveway. I’ll never forget riding in it the first time. Moral of the story, it has been a ton of fun. Worth every penny I paid… and every penny I borrowed from the college fund. We’ve gone everywhere together. I’ve drag raced it, done smoky burnouts, taken it on long trips, and cruised many miles on the weekends. I even learned how to drive a manual in this car. Now she’s ready for her next phase, handling. I'd like to do a little Auto-X and participate in some track days with the local Mustang club. Current Mods: The car came with welded in Flowmasters, a MAC short throw, Eibach pro-kit springs, AR 200s wheels, and 3.73 gears. Since then it hasn’t changed very much. I recently added some Magnaflow Magnapacks dumped at the rear and I’ve picked up some Saleen UDPs and an X pipe. It’s gonna be a slow build due to limited cash flow, but hopefully I’ll finish it someday. ^Before I bought the car at the trade in lot. ^ During head gasket replacement.
