Bought my 2013 GT and loved the power but it just wasn't enough I guess... So I decided to do a lil bit of modding and the next thing I know I have a hell of a machine.

Build list:

JLT Carbon Fiber CAI
BBK 85mm throttle body
Boss intake manifold
Borla XR1 longtubes
Borla Offroad xpipe
Borla ATAK Catback exhaust system
Sct programmer w/ Bama tunes
J&M lower control arms
BMR relocation brackets
Steeda adjustable upper control arm
Eibach swaybars front and rear
Eibach coilovers
Saleen big brake kit for the front
Vossen 20x9/20x10.5 CV3 matte black wheels
Nitto Invo tires
RTR front and rear kit
Roush side skirts
Cervini's window scoops
And Ford Racing 3.73 gears

Haven't dynoed yet but I can't wait to see the numbers!!! I have to say that these mods are worth every penny. But now I've come to the conclusion that it's not quite completed... Any suggestions on the next upgrade?! Spray kit will be in soon along with front suspension mods and slicks/skinnies.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

Wow, truly jealous of your build! The list looks awesome, but upload some actual pictures of the car!

So you didn't get the car with 3.73's to begin with? What I've heard is there isn't much difference between 3.73's and 3.55's in terms of really getting punched in the back. If I was going all track, I'd probably go with something even higher. My 3.73 car digs out of the hole pretty damned great, I will say that.

Definitely have to see pics of your machine!

If your budget permits I would personally install a supercharger kit. I would stay away from nitrous in my own opinion. If you want to use nitrous I would re-build the bottom end for that. Post some pics of the ride.

Mine is an automatic so the 3.73 gears were a must. Didn't like the "Lamborghini gearing" all that much lol... I'm trying to upload some photos but its not working to well :/

I'll only do a 50-75 spray so it shouldn't be too bad on the motor...

I'd love to add a supercharger but I'm very interested to see what turbo set ups come out within the next year. I know there are a couple out already but I'm not quite convinced there dependable jmo though

With that kind of money you probably could have just got a good used boss or gt500

Some quick math says he could have gotten a 2013 GT500 ($55k) for the price of a '13 GT + all those parts. But it does sound like a really nice list of mods and one helluva car. I just wish we could see it.:winks

Matteaser21,

Wow this is an awesome build. You have to one of the most modded 13's to date!

Your future mods look great as well. A 100-150shot will be perfect for your coyote motor! That will but you deep into the low 10's in the quarter mile.

Keep up the great work and let me know if you have any questions! I'll keep my eyes open for the pictures, I can't wait to see your ride.

-Dan
