I only have around 130 miles on mine pulled off the intake and am working on my supercharger install. I take the long way around designing my own manifold. I am a lot further along than the picture shows since it was taken a few weeks ago. I'll post up some pictures soon.



And no the strut tower brace won't fit over the supercharger but I'll design one the will and the strut tower brace at the back which comes on the PP model like mine does fit.

I kinda like the look of the plywood myself.

Looks like a great start! I'm gonna get a few more miles on mile before I tear her apart. Just to make sure there are no major factory issues before I blow the warranty lol

The front looks like a Fusion in the photos, but in person it is unmistakably Mustang. Congrats on the new ride!

New mod: Diode dynamics LED's

I finally installed all my LED's from diode dynamics! Here's a pic of my favorite one, the switchback turn-signals! They're AWESOME and look great at night. I love that they blink orange when you activate the turn signal

(left is stock and right is the LED, obviously)

Love the sound of those Ford Cat-backs! That is why we shell out the bucks for Mustang GT's!

You've got guts buying a brand new car and tearing it apart!!!

FWIW, I used to swim at that lake in Keego Harbor when I used to live in W. Bloomfield.

Rough prototype done it is off to be drawn up and then the first CNC version is made. Check that and if everything is good should install in February. Mean while I will build the biggest heat exchanger with the biggest fittings that can be installed.

Congrats! I finally saw my first one in person today at a dealer while getting an oil change on my '13. It is beautiful in person. The rear might take some getting used to, but the rest is certainly an improvement over the 13/14. I was particularly impressed with the interior. The 13/14 was quite an improvement over previous generations, but the 15 takes it all to a whole new level. Breaks my heart that mine is not the newest style anymore, but I am glad to see that best Mustang yet is on the roads. Enjoy! P.S. Anyone that makes snide Fusion comparisons is jealous

Thanks I'm loving it! Yeah the rear was my least favorite part when it first came out but honestly, it's growing on me every single day. I'm getting the rear tail lights tinted this weekend, which will improve the look a lot. My last mustang was a 13', I liked it a lot but it had some issues..which have been fixed/improved for the 15.

Nice ride! New to the AFM forum. Just ordered my first Stang 12/24:

2015 GT Premium, auto, Black, 401A package, spolier delete, 20" wheels - bright aluminum, enhanced security, windows tinted before I pick up. If the weather wasn't so ugly it would be even harder to sit and wait. No VIn yet but I'm told it should be around March 1st delivery.

Cat-back only dyno results

Had my mustang Dyno'ed today just to get some baseline numbers down before I start modding. The only mod done at the time of this video was the Ford racing sport cat-back! Unfortunately, I don't have a completely stock run..but the guy at the shop told me a 2015 they dyno'ed the other day put down 382bone stock. Not that it means much. Here's a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAMD...ature=youtu.be
