Due to bright green colors being found on GM and Chrysler vehicles, and looking like someone sneezed on a white car, I completely avoided this color until I saw it in person. All I can say is that Ford did a wonderful job on this one. Congratulations!

A Constitutional Right is much different that a Civil Right, but thanks! I'll not split hairs on AFM....or at least not in this thread..LOL!

One thing I have noticed is how expensive the modifications have become compared to models gone buy.

2 mufflers. Chrome tips. Bent inlet pipes. $500 and up!

I'm in the wrong business as the profit margin must be 500% or something! On top of that any of those mufflers have no horsepower gain...just sound?

I'm an old 'hotrodder' but not a stupid one.......

Me thinks some baffles are in need of penetration.

I was curious if others agreed with me on this. I love the 2013 Mustang GT but the one thing I do not like is the hood vents. I would prefer to have a GT with the V6 hood if that was an option. I like a clean hood without scoops or holes, like the 05 mustangs. I wish Ford followed Porsche's design strategy of making changes evolutionary not revolutionary. They should keep the 05 Mustang body but change the interior and whole drive train but they should not touch the body. I hate my rear bumper, it is round and muscle cars are know to have flat bumpers.

Find a V6 owner locally with the same color and swap them!

I once spoke out against the heat extractors as being ugly gouges in the hood........


Boy was I WRONG!

At a stoplight I can see the heat waves even on a 70 degree day pouring out of the vents. I hooked my ScanGuageII to my car so I would have an apples to apples comparison of water temp between my car and my wife's, and even with the extractors my temps run 5-8 degrees warmer than hers-so I shudder to think what they would be like without them.

Those oil squirters in the 2011-2012 Coyote's were really doing their job apparently-and our 2013-2014 cars need all the extra cooling they can get.

so you also thought they were ugly, I am not alone, all my friends say thats crazy and they think the extractors look sexy. I prefer a clean nose on a muscle car like the old days. if I had it my way, Ford would still have the 05 body but change the interior and drive train with the 15 models
