Alright so I have made the decision to create a build thread for my car. This way I won't have to keep making threads for each of my mods.

So I will start from the beginning:

I bought a 2004 40th Anniversary Sonic Blue Mustang GT from an older guy who drove it mostly highway miles. Purchased it with 74,8xx miles on it. I purchased it in April of 2012.

Mods: White Stripes, Flowmaster Mufflers

Nice clean canvas to mod on.


The first night:

First fill up:

Start of my mods:

First Up is tint. 5% Front windows, back windows, rear window and vinyl to cover up dot matrix.

Next mod was windshield tint. Went with 35% the whole thing. Highly recommended if cops don't bug about tint.

Time for exhaust change: Magnaflow Magnapacks with Terminator Catback piping.
The exhaust off the cobra will work but is not recommended because it scrapes a lot. I will be switching back to the SRA catback.

They do reduce visibility at night but it's not too bad.


I purchased a unlocked SCT tuner and loaded a strategy tune. Not too happy with results, but with a custom tune results should be better.

Thanks! I will need the 4x4 stance for the winter! Lol lowering is on the list of things to do. I'm stuck between the SR lowering springs and the H&R springs.
