Since I have traded in Grey Matter I am now going to be working on new stuff with my ecoboost, and to be honest I think for the money the gains will be more pronounced. Anyway all hail Banananana! *
*Note: not a real banana
Going forward I will be appending new stuff to later posts in this thread =).
This will be my mod thread for my new GT coupe going forward. I already have a starting list of items, but I am holding out because one thing I had not done on my 11 vert was anything radical with the motor, while I did do some heavy lifting stuff like the tranny swap, leather interior and full paint job etc, I think the budget part of me kept holding me back. Then when I really was going to go overboard and start boosting, I kept shifting gears and thinking about the other stuff I never touched (full suspension) etc.. Now I have two comp turbos and a set of ecoboost manifolds that I will probably not use obviously since I have a 5.0 on the way hehe. Anyhow I have to heavily weigh purchasing either the Procharger or Roush s/cs this march as I really am itching to do so, but I also have to put into context the new warranty as well.
So to start I will go easy but I may still make that big dollar purchase as I have the funds right now to do so =) (especially with the 3 paychecks in Jan thats alot of OT)
So to start this is what I got going on.
Craigs no drill front plate bracket (gunna hold on to this one, see if I can get my bumper patched and refinished in the spring maybe to remove the holes.
New LEDs for side markers, reverse, map lights etc.
Ford Racing cat back exhaust (removing resonators) Returned gone with resonator delete with FRPP X pipe. After this install will see if it needs axles. Hood struts (a must and kind of perplexed why we still in 2015 have a hood prop rod) DONE Lowering springs (Picked up a set of Eiback Pro springs will possibly install them next week or the following, week of 2/14/15) DONE Tuner sct x4 DONE
I did pick up a JLT CAI since I was given the X4 tuner for free so I figured I would round this out. DONE
There are a number of wheel options I am looking at right now, I love the PP black 19" but would love to go bigger, wider on all 4 corners. Looking at some Niche wheels right now No longer doing wheels I love the stock 20" as is will get larger rubber later. Roush hood vents, I like the stock bubbles but they are a little distracting when looking down the hood. Keeping it stock I am used to them now and they look ok =) Tint the windows DONE
Car cover (covercraft with 50 year logo)
50 year floor mats and trunk mat
Racing stripes, looking into doing either gloss or matte black, or something color coordinated,DONE (note: Aug 13th I added metallic silver 1/4" pinstripes to the outer edges of my existing stripes.)
Procharger or Roush superchargers, one provides stock like mpg with boost on demand, the other is more traditional with similar power, but smaller warranty (3yrs/36000 vs 5yrs/100000 miles) This one will prob be a 2016 item.
Items to carry over:
I have the premium stereo in the new GT it comes with 9 speakers and amp but that is two pillar mounted tweeters, a full and mid range in the doors, and two in the rear deck, and one mounted in the dash for center channel and improved voice audio, but no Subs. I am going to move over my Rockford Fosgate Punch amp and JL audio sub box to the new car. No longer applies as I have picked up the 401A package with the shaker pro audio which has a sub.
