Default 2009 Ford Mustang GT/CS - Black

I think I read someone requesting more pictures of mah stang so here are some more. I will post more as I get time to clean it toward the weekend (if my project on overclock lets me).


















Eventually I will change the spoiler to something like this and the grill to something like this. I'll probably mount the foglight somewhere in the lower chin spoiler since I have the gt/cs. Eventually I would love to put a turbo on here, or maybe a supercharger, but we'll see about that some time in the future. As for the interior, the leather seats are kush and I have no intention of changing those out. The shaker 500 system is nice, even though the speakers aren't. I plan on changing out all the speakers in the card to a nice brand, JL, Harman/Kardon, maybe Kicker. I think I need to upgrade my plugs as well as get some higher lb injectors as well. I have access to a shop with a plasma CnC and we are looking at getting a CnC mill as well. I may make a custom throttle body spacer or something, who knows.

Weird engine layout..but I love how the car looks. Interior isn't my favorite though.

Can't beat it. I will post a clip of how this baby sounds. It has a mean rumble. It has a bit of a hiccup though and I am pretty sure it's been caused by the programming. I don't know if something is wrong or if it's just backpressure.

(It may take a bit for this vid to work)
The two pops at the end are what I am talking about. I can't tell if it is fuel that is not combusting and getting sprayed into the exhaust where it combusts in there or if it is just backpressure.

I'm pretty sure it's running rich right now.

Talked to the guy who programmed it for me. He is going to take a look at it. He had originally told me I may need new plugs and new injectors to handle the amount of fuel. I will probably end up keeping the programming like it is if he is sure that the upgrades will solve my problem. It will probably help add a few extra hp as well. I won't be able to tell cause I don't wanna pay for another dyno run but I can use my sct livewire to estimate it, just gotta make a quick run to a truck stop to use their scales .
