    Its a nice looking Mustang, done very well and keeping it clean looking! I like how it looks! I HAVE to ask (am going to assume it was cost), any special reason why you went with the 4.0L under your hood? I just asking as if it was due to MPG I would have been tempted to get the new 3.7L, nice balance of HP and MPG.

    quite honestly it was the price tag of the car that grabbed my attention the most. If I could do it over again I might have sprung for a little more money and bought a GT and done to the GT what I've done to this one.

    I understand, am not one of those flamers where if doesn't have a V8 its pointless or a girls car lol . Just was curious if any special reason went with that one, I was tempted on mine for several days to go with a strip down GT or a full loaded V6 and believe it or not, almost went with the 3.7 instead of the 5.0

    Re: Took out my Mustang for a cruise

    My only issue now is do I go forced induction, swap it for a 3v, or just enjoy it as is and pick up a second one as a GT and have a go fast and a cruiser???? So many options so much money......

    You could always procharge it..I believe they're relatively cheap so you can have a little fun and start saving for a bigger project in the future

    Re: Took out my Mustang for a cruise

    Depends on what your goals are. If you like your car as it is and just want a bit more power then strap a blower to it. If you want more performance and dont mind a new car mortgage then get a 3V as they are much cheaper now. I would stay away from doing a 3V swap, money and time it takes can just get it all together, can get a stock one for about same amount of money without all the trouble shooting headaches.

    Personally I would just drive and enjoy the car, I did not want a new car mortgage even though I love my mustang. But was forced into it due to all the money it took to fix my G6 every year and couldn't take it anymore.

    Re: Took out my Mustang for a cruise

    Not that you were asking me, but I was reading the comments and thought I'd add my 2 cents. I say stick with what you got and upgrade it performance wise. Like dre said, you don't want another car payment, and insurance on top of that. You've already made the investment thus far, might as well finish it off, enjoy it.

    Yeah I know, if I get another car it would probably be a c5 Z06 honestly. That will probably be the next car once this is paid off. I'll probably still keep the mustang and have that as a nice cruiser and have the vette as the toy. The Vortech is a more reliable setup and seems to fit better in my experience over the procharger and makes the same or a little more power for slightly less money.

    Be cautious and your home work before getting a Z06. The LS7 has issues dropping its valves and many times goes with out issue due to people just dont drive them. Start driving it like its suppose to be and some of the LS7s drop there expensive titanuim valves into the engine.
