    My mustang build

    Figured i'd share. I did a round of mods to it last year (thanks Matt Lucke for the assist on the trans) and this year i am kind of wrapping up a lot of the build. Lots of loose ends that are going to get done and finished up the way i want them. As it sits now:

    2002 mustang GT convertible 5 speed.

    Fidanza aluminum flywheel
    Excedy stage 1 clutch
    H&R super sport springs
    KYB agx adjustable shocks
    BBK cold air intake
    Borla Cat Back
    4.10 gears
    Alloy shafts
    B&M shifter
    Full cobra body kit
    All new leather upholstery
    dyed the top black
    Full stereo (2 amps, components, and sub)
    SCT X4 with basic email tune
    17x9 and 17x10.5" wheels with 275's up front and 315's out back.

    Pic the other day:



    Pretty basic stuff ya know. So now to wrap it all up and make it so i can actually race it and not feel like a turd (autox and some track night in america stuff)

    ready to install:

    Autopower roll cage (just a basic 4 point)
    Max motorsports Caster camber plates
    BBK X pipe and a pair of high flow cats
    ford racing shorty headers
    Granatelli motorsports rear jacker (adjustable height) lca's
    UPR adjustable UCA's
    Qa1 K member with spring mounts
    Summit sway bars front and rear
    Throttle body plenum
    Projector headlights
    tinted tail lights
    a pair of corbeau seats i got off a member on here (one's dyed already, need to do the other)
    cobra 13" front brakes (powerstop pads and 13" rotors, powerstop powdercoated cobra calipers)
    Stainless brake lines

    parts waiting to go on:




    I'm also going to sticker the hell out of it. I bought a vinyl cutter literally for this reason lol.



    or maybe something like this:



    the only things up in the air right now are cams. Not sure if i'll have time to get to them this year. But i would like to toss a set of stage 1 or 2 cams in it.

    also the front splitter. contemplating building something along these lines:



    so far it's been a lot of fun. looking forward to this phase of the build.
