What kind of mods have you done!

Not too long ago there was a thread here regarding who has not done any mods, or has kept it stock. So now I am interested in what mods you have done to your '05'/'06 Stang (regardless of whether you have a GT, V6, Vert, Coupe, Shelby, Boss, etc). So what mods have you done? if possible please post pics.

As for me, I started out with a '05 Mustang GT vert, black with red leather interior, 5-speed manual, fully loaded. The dealer installed 20" wheels. I since then have added a few mods.

Interior mods: Aluminum pedal covers, aluminum door pins, crimison light bar, steering wheel cover, active two-way alarm.

Exterior mods: 20" wheels (as mentioned) with 255/35ZR20 (front) & 275/35ZR20 (rear), Legends ducktail spoiler (Shelby look-alike, not yet installed).

Performance mods: K&N CAI, FLowmaster American Thunder axle-back exhaust, SCT XCal2 tuner, Billet 62mm throttle body, billet throttle body spacer, Saleen short throw shifter adapter, Saleen suspension/lowering kit (springs, shocks/struts, sway bar), Strange Development Polished Strut Tower brace, and Aluminum adjustable panhard bar.

Cosmetic mods: Red with black ribs (and GT) plenum cover, MRT hood struts, sequential tail lights, stainless steel radiator cover, poweder coated valve covers (red to match plenum cover), billet aluminum strut tower caps, 6" shorty antenna, and tinted windows (5% black on back three windows, 20% black on driver/passenger door windows).

Future mods (soon to be): Ceramic coated shorty headers, 3.90 gears, California Dream Ram Air hood, CDC agressive chin spoiler, Xenon rear bumper cover, 14" Cross-drilled, ventialed rotors (on all four corners), painted calipers (red), painted stripes (crimison) , a few more cosmetics (billet aluminum touches) and a supercharger (sometime down the road).

By then it will be time to add another Stang (maybe a shelby) to my stables. So please share your mods.

Pretty much the same base car as you…

Black 05 Premium with Red leather, IUP, every option with the exception of the auto tranny. Seemed to be some what sacrilegious to not get the 5-Spd.


Alpine 9847 head unit
Rockford Fosgate 6x8 (4) for front doors and rear deck
Rockford Fosgate 8” (2) Punch subs for the front doors
Rockford Fosgate 10” (2) subs with a Q-Logic box for the trunk
Rockford Fosgate P3001 Mono amp for the two trunk subs
Rockford Fosgate P4004 to power the rest of the speakers
Monster cabling for head to amps
Monster wire for speaker runs
Alpine Crossover
Dynamated the entire trunk floor and side, both the top and bottom of the rear deck, rear flooring and sides in the back of the cab, flooring door panels and outside panels on the front doors, firewall and transmission tunnel as well as the fender wells front and rear.

Sounds like you and I have similar taste in cars and mods, except I have done nothing to my sound system, yet. My tires are Falken Beta-452. I did not see the purpose in getting an automatic either, and I got all the options, and I even got my plenum cover from Midwest. I must say, damn fine ride you have (of course I could be a little biased )
