    Good afternoon, mustang enthusiasts, I recently purchased a GT500 and I'd like to take it to a good shop near Newport Beach, CA. Does anyone have a recommendation? It does have a few modifications, new air intake and modified exhaust system. Thank you, Scot

    I was wondering if I could use the cats from a 2015+ mustang gt onto my 2011 gt and pass smog. My car currently doesn’t pass smog in California and was wondering if the 2015+ will work for smog. I will have them welded if need be.

    Hello. I'm in the process of resto-modding my 1965 Mustang coupe, and I think it may have a thermactor but I'm not sure. So I have some questions. 1. What is a thermactor? 2. How do I tell if I have one? 3. Are there any benefits to removing it? Does it effect horsepower? Here are 2 pictures...

    Hello, I'm Adam and I bought a 1966 coupe this morning. It's a LOT rougher around the edges than I wanted, but I get impulsive when I'm excited. Plus, it was in my budget... although, after all the work it needs, a nicer specimen might have been a better route to go. I was initially pretty...

    Hi, I'm looking at buying a used 2011-2012 Mustang GT possibly online. This would mean that I would possibly get a non-CA emissions approved vehicle. I know if it doesn't have the sticker it has to have at least 7500 miles on it for CA to consider it a used car. Once it's past that mark...

    I'm looking to replace my back tires soon and I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions of good and affordable tires for a 2003 Mustang GT? I'm willing to sacrifice speed for traction if that helps any. Also, I'm in southern CA, so something that does well in the West Coast heat would...

    Ladies, Gents: Is there a compiled listing of 2011 Mustang GT parts that have received California's approval? Have any aftermarket folks pursued that approval yet? I'm currently stationed in Nevada and expect to be reassigned to SoCal in 2013. Sure would like my car to be CA legal when I...
