First Mustang But Not The Last ;)

Hey guys. On April 20th 2012, I bought a 2002 mineral gray GT. Of course it is V8 manual. It's a Mustang baby!

It came from the dealer with:
Blacked Out Head Lights with Clear Corners
Tinted windows 40%
18" Saleen rims
Ford Racing 4.10 gears
Steeda Sport Springs

Modifications I've done so far to date:
BBK Long Tube Headers
BBK Catted Xpipe
Magnaflow Magnapacks
Pro 5.0 Short Throw Shifter with Tri-Ax Handle
JLT Cold Air Intake
TrickFlow Plenum
93 Octane Bama Tune
Steeda Aluminum Lower Control Arms
Stock Springs, Cut One Coil
Blacked Out Accents
Mach 1 Grill Delete
Mach 1 Chin Spoiler
Front Emblem Painted to match
Sequential Tail Lights

Waiting to be put on:
Blacked Out Decklid

In the Mail:

Post any comments or suggestions you have.
I love hearing feed back and opinions

This next mod is probably one of the best so far. Only cause I love music and not many people have it. I love to be different!

I had an auxiliary port and a usb port installed for my iPhone

This one is kind of out of order, mainly cause of the lack of pictures. But everyone know what tinted taillights looks like. But, I ordered a JLT Cold Air Intake and Bama tuner. and put those in.

Of course I'm running the 91 race tune

How did you clean the engine bay? Anything special? Or just elbow grease? Love the car, especially the stripes!

I took off my plasti dipped racing stripes, they were looking too uneven for me and my OCD finally got the better of me. Oh to anyone who wants to plasti dip their car, make sure not to get it on badly chipped paint, it ripped off a lot from under the spoiler but you can't see it. Thank god.

Oh and I got a personalized plate for my baby! FORDY9ER
gotta have school spirit!

I still haven't done the full detail yet

It has been raining too much to try and detail the car. But, I did do a few little mods to my car. I painted the horse on my grill to match my car! and I painted GT and Ford oval too. I am not done with the badges yet, but here is a pic of the horse and badges. Hope you like



PS: will post a pic of them on the car tomorrow when I get them on

How did you wire in the usb port for your iPhone into the sound system? I wouldn't mine having one in my 97.

The painted emblems look really good
