Thinking about Trading & Parting Out. Opinions Wanted

Here's my dilemma.

1. I miss having a manual tranny but I cannot see trading for a manual V6 without spending a little more for the V8. I can afford to do it if I find a base '13 with Recaros and/or Brembos for around $30K but I really don't want to spend more money.

2. I cannot stand the buzzing/lawnmower type sound my exhaust makes around 2k RPMS during normal cruising/stop and go. I've spent a bunch of cash on my exhaust trying to get the right sound and refuse to spend any more. I do think the prob may be the larger GT resonators.

3. I really love what I've done so far to my Stang. It is one of the best looking out there and I will probably regret selling it. However, the longer I keep it the less it will be worth. Also, I cannot wait over a year for the 15's so that isn't an option.

I kinda fell like my hands are tied. Heck, I don't think I can trade for a new one until I find a stock catted mid pipe and over axles to replace my custom setup. Either no one looks at the classifieds or no one wants to part with their stock stuff in my area (Tampa FL). In the meantime I'm going to start swapping back in the other stock parts.

Well,you have a few different choices.
Did you hate the stock exhaust?
Maybe you could post and ad stating you are willing to trade
for a gt with added cash maybe?

With my 13 mustang,I'm learning to have patience
in buying mods as it is more an addiction for
me other than a need.I'm still waiting for more
after market parts to come out.

I'm hoping sooon we will have more tested and proven
FI addons for the v6.
