Default Heya =D

I just joined, I am a member of overclock.net as well. This is my 09 Mustang GT/CS. Don't mind the scratch in the second pic... A bit of rubbing compound will take that off. It's a bit dirty too lol... These pics are from where I work and there is a long, dusty gravel road leading to the office... Nearly impossible to keep this thing clean for more than 24 hours. This stang has the 4.6l 24 valve V8. I have done a little bit of work to it... Cold air intake and SCT programming. I will be modifying the spark plugs and most likely the injectors as well, the stock plugs and injectors don't like the programming too much.

Wow, nice stang. Is the hood scoop aftermarket and does it actually work? I didn't know the 4.6s came with them.

It's factory actually and no it is not functional unfortunately . I will be replacing the hood along with a few other modifications though. Need something with an air ram for my cold air intake .

Thanks, I actualy have a new grill designed, just waiting for some time to fab it up. Gonna powder coat it black, get rid of the grill that is there and most likely move the fog lights somewhere else.

Yeah but I am thinking somewhere below the turn signal. The stock grill is very restrictive. I estimate 35-40% more air will be getting to my radiator with my custom grill.

Tested, according to my sct live wire at least which is pretty accurate in the 1/4m and 0-60. The bhp and torque is according to a dyno run.
