Well Yall I Just got back from Iraq and now I have finally gotten my dream car:

A 2003 MUSTANG 5SPD GT.

It has all new CLANTON BUILT (Robert Clanton of Clanton Muffler Center in Madison, Alabama) Stainless dual exhaust with hi-flo Cats and Flowmaster Muffs.

Its got 3:73 Gears and I just Hyperteched it with a new MAX ENERGY Programmer.

Anything I should know? this is my First Modular car and it is stock save for the gears.

Here are a few pics:

Thanks Dropped!

Glad to do it:usa

I have a cold air intake that goes through the Pass side fender....It looks aftermarket and Im pretty sure it is...

I bought the car as you see it, so Im still not sure of everything that has been done to it, but the body and interior are IMMACULATE and it has 75,000 miles on it, drives like new :D

Pulleys sound like a good idea. No need for supercharger, right now Im just glad I got the stocker! Ive wanted a 5spd Mustang my whole life :D

I saw an Eibach kit that was supposed to do the same thing....it was coilover... Im looking more at a Street car than anything else...I dont like the stance and theres alot of body roll in the curves....

Thanks for the job you do in Iraq. Glad you made it back home here in Alabama. BTW I love the tag on the front of your car!
So bring that thing to Gilbert and Baker ford in Albertville and lets start modding the hell out of it. I have a customer with an 01 gt that I have began modding his car. He asks what I think he needs I tell him, he orders it and every thursday for the last month he has shown up with parts for me to put on his car. I will even get you put in a loaner car if need be, while your car is under the knife. My shop forman is retired from the Marines so I could probably get you a discounted labor rate.

Thanks to you too!

The Confederate Battle Flag is a symbol of my Southern American Heritage. As long as we remember that and keep it flying as a symbol of Southern Heritage and not a centerpiece for hate and racism it will fly forever. :rockon

I will have to come and see you sometime, theres not much I want to do right now, except the suspension... I spent most of my funds on the car itself...lol
