Buying from Evolution amd American Muscle

I am awaiting my car and am thinking about tuners, CAI sysytems and mufflers. I called American Muscle about tuners and mulfflers. Unfortunately they don't carry Corsa, which I favour at this time. Evolution Performance has Corsa exhaust components. What are your opinions in dealing with Evolution ? How are they to deal with and how are their tunes ? Anyone have their stuff on a 2011 GT yet?
Any imput about either company would be much appreciated.

Randy

Here's some advice:

Prices right now for aftermaket 5.0 components are market adjusted very high because it's the news tits thing. Wait 6-8 months and enjoy your car stock until then. When more is available, and you see lots of solid feedback from customers from various places, then buy. You will get cheaper prices on the same brands, and more research and tweaks will be made to tunes to make your car that much better.

Just wait.


Evolution is a good place, from what I have heard. Never heard anyone complain.

I use Brenspeed for all my Mustang needs, and they have been 100% solid for me. They currently don't have 5.0 stuff listed on their site, but you can be guaranteed that when they release stuff, it will be for a good price and of highest quality for the $.

$800 bucks for an intake/tune combo is absolutely pathetic.

OK, Here is my experience with evolution. I own a 2011GT. I called the shop back in May and ask if they have the parts in stock that was on their web site. I was told "yes". So I ordered my parts (suspension and magnaflow muffler) on May 28th. Well it's July 9th and my order is still incomplete. I got my exhaust the end on June and I am still waiting for shocks. I call several times was told "it should be here any day now"....

I agree 100%. Whats the hurry? Wait to see who produced the best tune/CAI combo and get some real customer feed back. Still need to see what the super group over @ AM do and Brenspeed. Last i heard Brenspeeds car was still on hold.

Thankyou gentlemen for your input. I know waiting is the best way to proceed. I just hope I have the patience. I am just a little over enthusiastic right now. And also I am accustomed to fast cars. I just sold my Olds 442 with a built 468 cu.inch big block. I have always had these type of cars. This Mustang will be my first new car and my first stock one that proposes to be fast. Anyways, it sure is interesting searching the sites and "dreaming" about the modifications.
