Hi all,
I'm new to this site and it's been a wealth of info already. I just purchased a 2005 Mustang GT Convertible from Carmax. She's Torch Red with Red leather, 5 speed, Shaker 1000 and it had just 13,898 miles on it. It's bone stock with the original P Zero tires and 10 spoke wheels.

My previous Mustangs include:
1988 Mustang GT Convertible; White with red stripe, red cloth, auto.
1989 Mustang GT Convertible; Black with red stripe, grey leather, auto.
1991 Mustang GT hatch; Red with black cloth, Mildly modified: best ET [email protected]

Pics of my new pony can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157618995122107/

I'm a bit concerned with the mpg as on the first two tanks I only averaged 16.5. This seems low as advertised it's 17/25. I drive about 40 miles round trip for work. 1/2 city, 1/2 70 mph highway. I've been trying to use cruise control a lot. Yeah, I did get on it a few times. The paper air cleaner looks clean. I've just removed the pre cat from the inlet hose and will soon upgrade to a K&N or a BBK CAI.

I hope to get out to PBIR soon and run some quarter miles. What kind of times should I expect so I'm not too disappointed? Should I keep TCS on or off?
