Yeah, they have not been the hottest sellers. They presold a very large hunk of them, though. I'm sure with recent rebates, they'll disappear after awhile. If more people would test drive them, they'd see the difference. It's night and day from a stock GT.
does the axel back make that much of a differance? or is there more that they have done that i'm not aware of?

Haha, well, when the gf now fiancee lives 170 miles away and you make about 6-8 trips out to see her in one summer, it racks up the highway mileage.

People have dynoed it and it is pushing over and matching what Ford said it would do. The torque curve is much different and with a snappy throttle... it's not hard to smoke them. the 3.73s help out too. I push 27mpg on the highway also. Sometimes, the computer says 28! lol

The stock shifter was an amazing improvement over the old ones, I just wanted a shorter throw. I kept the stocker bagged away though.

I just love driving it, what can I say? But, like I said. I'm going to be doing a full detail and maintenance soon, then it's in the garage for about 4 months with the occasional drive, so it will even out. I just wish more people would test drive one just to feel it!

I'm an active member on imboc, but I haven't been on in a long time since I"m just getting the internet back, so I'll check up on there again soon.

Stock as can be, just trying to reverse the damage the previous owner caused.

Oh, and it's not just an axleback. It's a modified H-pipe with some little internal tweaks in it and a new axbleback designed for the car... the sound is amazing... especially after breaking it in. I don't want to change it.

I just took my 08 BULLITT 4570 to the dealer for the same whining problem, they added friction modifier to the pumpkin and there is NO more noise. Sounds like 3.73's have this issue.

Can't she come out and see you once in awhile?

9600 miles you should be thinking about rebuilding the engine. Just kidding. It's just now getting broke in.
