I love the new stang, but girls will never be into it unless they also like things like noodling, hogging and packing lips.

New mustangs look awesome. I have always wanted a Cobra or GT500. I just don't know if those cars are good for daily driving.

That GT500 is going to be stupid fast stock and for cheap put on another level with smaller blower pulley and some headers to get rid of those little log manifolds.

I love the Mustang. However, I was shocked and couldn't believe the irony when I heard the 6spd. tranny is made in China, and that it is giving problems:

Then again, all it takes is a few folks to complain to besmirch a product. Hopefully Ford has addressed the problem already.

No wonder why they were able to keep cost down. China strikes again.

I daily drive my terminator (04 cobra) making 600rwhp/580rwtq and it is all in the tune. Drives like stock when you need it to be.

You will be very surprised how well those logs flow, pullied 03/04 cobras would change to longtubes headers, and get little to nothing from them, it basically just changes sound. Same with the Gt500's, maybe 10-15rwhp for well over $2k invested, just not worth it. Rather spend that on other things, those logs and nothing like the E55 logs that cork up the exhaust system

The BEAST E55 and the TERMINATOR:

Awesome combo!
