Recently installed FRPP spring lowering kit

Recently installed FRPP spring lowering kit (1.5" drop) and dual pod auto meter gauges with tach light. Added a few racing stickers to the rear window.
Makes a nice difference.

You've got to be kidding with those stickers. KYB? Melling? Pertronix? Even if you had
KYB shocks, and be thankful you don't, it's nothing to brag about. In general your car looks nice, just get rid of the rice.

Am I seeing right, your trunk stripes go under the wing? The wing didn't get stripped? Different.....

IF MY CAR WENT AS FAST AS THE MONEY I SPEND ON IT, I'D WIN EVERY RACE

I would say nix the stickers in the window, but I guess it kind of goes with all the badging you have on the fenders

2005 GT Premium,torch red, all available factory options.
Performance mods: Lets just say it's not stock.

Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing. But they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

This IntelliTXT stuff sucks.

I didnt know stickers equated to rice. I put them on for looks. Obviously there is mixed opinion about them. The bottom line is that I like them, so you dont have too. I thought you Cali. guys were alot more mellower. Chill dude....

Another hater.... OK, I'll take the stickers off after the summer. Hows that for a comprimise. Even with the stickers the car flies. I was wondering what some of your secret mods were???

Leave your car the way you want it. It is YOUR car after all. I like a cleaner look, but, that is my opinion and what I want for my car. I say make it your's, not everyone else's. Let it express your own personality. If you like the performance stickers, leave them on.:thumbsup

Back to the FRPP (put stickers wherever you like). I started out in the Full Forward/Firmest Setting but realized that the ride was "bone-jarring" to say the least. Wound up putting the adjustment in the Full Rear/Softest Setting and now I actually feel like I have shocks again. Bottom line the adjustment on the front bar really does make a big difference. Since I've ridden it both ways I think the Mid Setting/Street Performance would probably be tolerable. Depends alot on where you drive obviously. If you mainly drive on smooth interstate type roads than the Firmest Setting would be fine.

Well, Melling is best known for oil pumps, Pertronix makes kits to convert ancient Kettering ignition systems to electronic, and KYB builds cheap shock absorbers. What motivated you to choose those particular companies to display on your beautiful Mustang only you can answer. I'm probably twice your age which may be why I don't get it. In any case I think that 99% of what you've done to your car is great, including your awesome wax job. BTW, which brand of pedals do you have? I plan to do some track days with my car but the gap between the brake and gas pedals is a little too wide for comfortable heel/toe downshifting.
