You are in the Ford Mustang
What is this discussion about?
Ford Mustang, Coupe
Feb 16, 2006 (11:43 am)
I own a 2001 V8 Mustang and I have been in love since the day I bought it. Lately I have been itching to buy her a companion and the 05-06 models are awesome. I heard a rumor that Ford would release a Bullitt in 08 if so, hell yea I am going to wait!!! But as with most rumors I have found no other confirmation than one line in a Stang mag. Any news?
#1927 of 2921 The next Stang

Well, perhaps the next big change for the Stang is the concept car look. Some of the original styling of that concept car back in 2004, would spice things up a bit.
Let's see last time gas got tight, there was the '74 Pinto Stang.
Sorry about that, must be a terrible flash back.
Anyway, I do hope they change the front and rear lights area to be more like the models shown a few years back. That would be a cool evolution of this old, but handsome looking retro car. And please, a new interior with a rounded dash, gauges close together so they show between the steering wheel, and less hard plastic, if possible without breaking the bank.
#1928 of 2921 exhaust upgrade
Feb 19, 2006 (4:55 pm)
I'm looking to upgrade my 05 GT with a set of axle-back mufflers. I like Bassani, but others seem pretty good, too. Does anyone have any input? I'm looking for good deep sound that doesn't sound cheap and too loud. Also, prices seem to vary. Is there that much of a difference in quality?---Thanks- Tom

I like Borla, fantastic sound and lifetime warranty; heard you actually loose horse power on Flowmaster. I like Magnaflow but I still think Borla is better. Bassani I have heard is good, don't know much about them.

I bought the SLP loudmouth axle back exhaust and OMG! car sounds tons better. at idle the stang is a little throatier but at WOT look out! The note is huge. SLP unit is basically a double walled 12" exhaust tip. no baffles. may be too loud for the faint of heart but i get kudos everywhere i go. good luck on your search.. oh and it was only 249.00 through rpmoutlet.com

Try the MRT axle back. They have it for either the V6 or GT. Some reports have shown an extra 10rwhp. It has convinced some not to go with duals for v6.

It's happened to me when I wasn't watching the tac. It just loses power and for a second, and you think you blew the engine. Also, about 105 mph, (happened once, but this car is great at high speeds!) the car just lost power. I'm thinking of putting in a chip, not that I want to redline it, but I've heard about a noticable increase in performance and no regulators. I'm also upgrading the exhaust and the intake, so a chip would help.
