Got The Stang Back

Well after a long ass time (two days lol) i got the mustang back from the shop, gears are installed. Final sum of money spent, $440 dollars, not bad i think. Anyhow i put in 35miles today on the car and it has had some nice heating and cooling. I must admitt the pressure got to me and i racked it up to 4grand through 1,2,3rd gear but i didnt power shift, i just was "Accelerating Fast". I asked the ford mechanic who did the gears, and he said there really isnt a milage you should wait, he just said dont take it to the track for like 3 weeks or so and no burn outs.

Anyhow man...... when i was going like 5mph and pushed the gas like seriously half way down i thought it jumped forward like i had never seen it do lol. so i think tomorrow instead of my g/fs turn to drive to school i think it will be mine again =) i must get these thing worn in, and see how they do when i really give it some go!

anyhow very pleased.

enjoy and drive safe.

I'm back - 2001 Cobra convertible, 84K miles, acquired 12/10/11; just beginning to figure out what it needs to be right (beyond the leaky top..) - top to be done 12/27. Changed the coolant, <acronym title="transmission">trans</acronym>. fluid, oil, differential fluid. Replaced the LF wheel hub assy. Ordered a pair of Blisteins for the rear. Next up: full-length subs, strut brace, stainless brake hoses F&R and a bunch of FatMat.

yea mine has been in the shop for 2 days now, getting new brakes and i'm going through withdrawls lol. although i got in trouble and got it taken away for a week or so (hopefully i get it back this weekend) and no one understands why i feel so deprived and i've only been without it for about 4 days now ... of course its safe to say they've never owned a mustang lol or they WOULD get it
