OK...the exhaust upgrade and cold air intake upgrades are on the way...

Now, I'm open to some simple, cost-effective handling upgrade suggestions for the cornering/in-traffic of the 2012 V6 Premium we just acquired -it doesn't handle quite as well as the 2007 GT we traded in.

Suggestions that won't break the bank but are effective? :worship :worship :worship


Thanks!

HAPPY 4th everyone...stay safe :wavey

How big is your bank?

FRPP makes a handling package that you can pick up for about $1100. It has lowering springs, shocks and struts, sway bars and a strut tower brace.

Suspension upgrades are a great upgrade for personal satisfaction. In fact, it's the part I love about my Mustang.

CAI is a good investment for fuel savings & performance gain for the price. I did some math and IF you drive your vehicle the same before and after the CAI install, it will pay for itself in about 50k miles of usage.

If I had it to do over I would chose the FRPP package too. Good price. No guess work if it will all fit. Spring rates set for the V6.

I wish I had gone with the FRPP package. Good price. Every piece you need. No guess work if parts will fit. Spring rates set for the V6.

I was looking at the FRPP pkg. too. But, it says it's for the coupe, does not fit the convertible. Does anyone know why that would be? I would really like the covenience of having the full package without guesswork. Also, anyone using the FRPP N springs out there? Any pix of your car after the install? I am curious to see the car lowered with them. I was looking at the Steeda Unltra-Lites also.

Verts are heavier with more weight on the rear wheels.

It'd probably work okay even though it says it won't.

Seems to me the extra weight on the rear wheels could be an advantage. A bit of ballast for the FRPP, provided there are no fitment issues of any kind.
