Stang Search Questions
Now that I finally have my daily driver paid off and can start putting more towards getting a Mustang, I'm able to start seriously looking rather than just letting a puddle of drool form on my laptop from searching vehix and autotraders websites. I've come up with a couple of questions.
I can't find it, but some time ago I read on here that the 2006 and up Mustangs either have a feature that the 2005 did not, or do not have a problem that the 2005 had. I cannot remember what exactly it was, but I've been limiting my searching to 2006 - 2009 model years. Does anyone know right off what this was? I can't even think of what it had to do with, but for some reason I've felt it important enough to remove the 2005 model from my searches ever since reading about it. If it was something minor, I can add the 2005 year to my searches which should help me both pricewise and number of vehicles able to be found.
Secondly, I'm definitely looking for a 5-speed, but have noticed quite a few deals on some automatics. Is it feasable to swap a manual tranny into a car that was built as an auto? I'm guessing that since it's a mass produced vehicle, the holes/grommets would be there for the clutch and stuff in an auto car. I'm just wondering if saving the money on the car itself would be worth the headache of the tranny swap, but not sure howmuch of a headache that would be.
Same question actually applies here, but with engines. Have come across some great deals on some V6s, but I know I want a GT. Is the engine/suspension swap worth the headache of purchasing a V6 over just buying a GT in the first place? Are the rear ends and brakes also different from the V6 to the GT?
Just looking for some help to make my searching easier. The best deal I've come across so far is an 06 GT with 53k on the ODO, and asking price is 11k, but it's an Automatic.
